THE FIRSTBORN have just made available on their Bandcamp page the last three critically-acclaimed albums, including the recently-released «Lions Among Men», 2008’s «The Noble Search» and 2005’s «The Unclenching of Fists». These three albums showcase the path since taken by the band, blending Buddhist philosophy with modern Metal aesthetics.

All the albums are available for download in high-quality format and include bonus features such as the full artwork for each album, as well as high-resolution promotional photos related to each period, among other surprises.

The best part: you name the price! You can get the albums for free or choose to support THE FIRSTBORN my making a donation in appreciation for the music… the choice is yours.

So instead of resorting to the usual low-quality mp3 downloads, you can hear the music as intended: clear, powerful and organic.
