23.12.2011 If you ask me (and why wouldn't you) Forefather have long been the ultimate guilt-free way to enjoy cheesy and emphatically epic metal without having to give up your scruples and go to the Dark side that is power or folk metal. The hyper-melodic leads and soaring cleans are always in direct opposition to guttural rasps, blasting drums and heavy riffing.

Any fans of 'Steadfast' should luxuriate in this like a Viking bathes in the blood of his enemies.

Rating: 7 Used to be crazy about this duo. Album is sounding good, but I've grown out of the style a little. Def. check it out if you liked their previous few.

Rating: 7 Only a few tracks in but excellent so far. Forefather are the perfect band when you want guilt-free cheese.

Def hearing some Iron Maiden-esque melodies on this album. I'm surprised !J.O.O.E.! would staff pic an album with such a traditional melodic heavy metal sound to it.

Rating: 10 Ah why did I put this one off for so long, very very good. Probably not quite up to their last album though.

Rating: 10 The hell with it, giving this a full 10, brilliant stuff.

I didn't think I'd end up the same way but I agree, this is the best I've heard from them. I need to backtrack their discography methinks.

Sweet, took some time for me too. What did you think of their single "Summer's Flame?" Pretty awesome guitar melodies in there.

I really need to listen to something other than "Wudugast" from their earlier discography haha. That song is too good..

To the youtubes!

Sounds good! Nice instruments used in there for the 'folky' parts.

I haven't heard anything prior to Steadfast, plenty to check out I think.
