4 stars Surviving Remnants Of The Medieval Greenwood is the first full length album by Afforested and was self-released in 2012. It's an instrumental work where the British duo based in Kent and formed by brothers Jonathan and Alex Betts, two skilled multi-instrumentalists, showcase great energy and very good musicianship. Although most of the tracks are rather short, the music never gives me a sense of incompleteness and each piece seems just part of a long suite. You can find here merry Celtic dances and evocative folksy ballads where past and present melt in dreamy atmospheres under the shade of ancient trees and modern skyscrapers. Acoustic instruments and synthesizers drive you along magic paths, following the flights of ageless steel-eyed gryphons and the footsteps of cheerful, gentle giants... From the mythical forest of Fangorn to the Isle of Skye this is a wonderful music journey that is really worth experiencing! Anyway, have a try and judge by yourselves... By the way, in 2016 the album was remastered and now is available from the main digital stores.
