I'm deeply concerned if features like groups (along with their forums) and journals will be brought back on the new last.fm. Even if they were basically dead in the past months (if not years), they could breathe a new life with the whole new website. Also, it would be really sad to lose the legacy of more than 10 years of our "social music revolution".

 Hi thanks for your question.

To pretty much replicate what I said about journals in a different conversation: groups and their forums are definitely coming back, but they haven't been built yet.  Again, I'm not sure how long this will take, so please bear with us while we restore this feature for you. 

In the meantime, the groups and forums haven't been deleted, and are accessible (read only format) from their original urls: 

e.g. http://www.last.fm/group/Testy+McTesterson

As an aside, it's worth stressing that the team haven't really worked on groups in over five years (as long as I've been here), so this would be a great time for you to tell us what kind of features and improvements you'd like see.  Fixing the group leaders problem springs to mind, for example.
