Finally FOREFATHER made the step forward after being born already in September 1997. Athelstan and Wulfstan started as founding members and they are brothers in real life too. The aim was to create powerful and epic Metal which should be seen as a tribute to their Anglo-Saxon ancestors, straight from the heart and with a very high level of quality. In August 1998 they recorded “Deep into Time” in their own home-studio and they released it themselves early 1999. The album was very well received in the underground. The follow-up “The Fighting Man” was released in October 2000 and even more positive reviews were published worldwide. In 2000 FOREFATHER released a limited CD called “Legends Untold” on Germany’s Millennium Music, with unreleased tracks. By the beginning of 2002 the third and so far best album “Engla Tocyme” was released and it saw FOREFATHER’s unique style brought even more to the forefront with all the power and passion one has come to expect ! Now FOREFATHER was contacted by KARMAGEDDON MEDIA to join forces on their new album called “Ours is the Kingdom” and it is definitely an album that is very mature and considered the best album so far. During 2004 the previous three albums will be re-released with bonus-material and in a re-mastered sound… the world will witness the Anglo-Saxon invasion again… the Kingdom is belonging to FOREFATHER !!!
