FOREFATHER: The Fighting Man CD (reissue, remastered, includes bonus track)

English brothers Forefather surfaced in the late 90s with a highly melodic and rousing sound that married second wave black metal aggression with Viking metal heroics and Anglo-Saxon themes and lyrics. The band were far ahead of their time and would end up providing direct inspiration for bands such as Winterfylleth and Wodensthrone, while nevertheless always remaining somewhat hermetic and apart from the rest of the scene.

For fans of Falkenbach, Bathory etc.

This is their second album, from 2000, and marks a big leap forward from the debut stylistically with more catchy riffing and bigger clean sung refrains, resulting in some extremely stirring songs. It also marked the beginning of more indepth and historic lyrics. This version features a bonus song and liner notes and is remastered.
