At this time the band chose to release a collection of demo recordings entitled Legends Untold on the German Millennium Metal label. Engla Tocyme (The Coming of the English) was recorded in late 2001 and released in March 2002 along with a re-issue of their first album Deep Into Time, with improved artwork and a bonus track. Ours is the Kingdom was released in June 2004, marking the bands move to the respected Karmageddon Media label, and the subsequent improvement in the general quality of artwork and packaging this afforded. After taking some time out to work with the Folk metal supergroup Folkearth, Forefather released their fifth album Steadfast on the Seven Kingdoms label in 2008, which received very good reviews in the metal media. Most of the bands songs are impossible to perform live with just two people.
They use a drum-machine in the studio, and have revealed in interviews that they do not like the idea of guest musicians working on the project, preferring to keep it 'In the family', as it were. Thus, the band has not performed live, and never will. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
