Considering this is a collection of demo tracks (repressed for your enjoyment…), this CD actually sounds pretty good. In fact, I’m inclined to say that it sounds even better than their first album, Deep Into Time. The sound is noticeably rougher, but at the same time, there seems to be less of an Emperor/Satyricon (old, of course) influence and more of a Folk Metal edge. There are two non-demo tracks on this CD, and when you consider how good they are, I’m surprised that they didn’t make it onto any of Forefather’s albums. The orchestral version of “Ancient Voice” - which appeared in more Metalized form on Deep Into Time - is particularly interesting because it sounds a Hell of a lot better than the original. I don’t have any of Forefather’s demos, but I think most (if not all) of the demo material made it onto their debut album. Regardless, I think these demo versions are worth listening to and fans of the band will definitely want to pick this up.
