Forefather are a band from the U.K that has been interviewed before by this zine which labels their music Anglo Saxon Pagan Metal which takes influences from viking, black and traditional metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Last Of The Line" which was released by Metalhit.com.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffs that dominate throughout the recording, as for the synths when they are utilized they bring an atmospheric sound to the music
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine influences from viking, black and traditional metal moving even more further away from the more black metal sound of the earlier albums as well as having a great amount of melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add a progressive feeling to the music.
Vocals range from clean singing viking metal vocals and some black metal screams and growls as well as a brief spoken word part being utilized on one song, while the lyrics cover Anglo Saxon Paganism, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Forefather and if you enjoy their most recent material, you should enjoy this one as well. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chorus Of Steel" "Wolves Of Prayer" "Shadows Of The Dead" and "The Downfallen". RECOMMENDED BUY.
