"The new album Last Of The Line will be available soon for pre-order (with accompanying t-shirt) from seven-kingdoms.com. More details to follow..."

Ok, really a huge fanboy of the band, anyone else excited about this?

One of my favourite bands, Steadfast was brilliant so hopefully this is more of the same.

Awesome! Steadfast was almost perfect; definitely my favorite Forefather release.

Excellent news! For me, Ours is the Kingdom is Forefather's grand opus, and Steadfast was a great follow-up. So I have faith in them releasing another solid, maybe amazing, record. Very excited.

I had no idea that this was coming out! You made my day! :hyper:

Steadfast was great, and I can't wait to hear the new album.

Best news I've heard since Vektor's newest was announced. Steadfast was nothing but a fucking solid release and a thoroughly enjoyable and diverse record throughout. I don't think these guys can possibly do any wrong so I'm stoked as hell.

Eh, I don't know. Hard to tell from only one song (Summer's Flame, and I don't know if it's going to be on the new album). I did find that a bit on the okay side, but Steadfast did have it's share of okay tracks too, like Theodish Belief and all.

Theodish Belief was actually one of my favourites haha I loved Summer's Flame to be honest. I find the variety of their discography to be one of the key points of why I like them so much

Well you have a point. They'd get old pretty quick if they kept playing Hallowed Halls or Brunanburh (which, as you probably can guess, are my favourites on Steadfast) all the time.

Steadfast was so good that I don't see it being topped although any new material is good news. I haven't heard anything else from their discography, so I'll check out this new one and probably make my way back through their catalogue.

I like this band's sound, but Steadfast was just too... well, steadfast. I realise this is the whole point of the band, but they would do well to inject a bit of variety and dynamicism into the songs. Even if it's just a few wild solos.

The back catalogue of the band is very different from Steadfast, while the first 2 are closer to pure black metal and Engla Tocyme is very midpaced, mainly clean vocals. Ours Is The Kingdom is closest to Steadfast

The outro of Theodish Belief is one of my favorite parts of the album...


Any date on this? Something Im really looking forwards to now..

No date yet, they never seem to get to far ahead of themselves. Hope it just pops up from nowhere so I don't have to count down days haha

Excellent. Loved their last two albums but didn't like Summer's Flame, I have to admit. Will be interesting to see what they do.

Looking forward to it, their last 2 albums were brilliant.
Summer's Flame was dissapointing though, it sounded like a leftover track tbh.
