Prog Reviewer
4 stars Frithu is the second album by Afforested, a British folk-prog duo based in Kent. It was self-released in 2016 and confirms all the good qualities of their debut from 2012, Surviving Remnants Of The Medieval Greenwood. While their previous work was completely instrumental, the new album features some vocal parts that provide evocative images to the musical stories told by the band. The music and lyrics were inspired by the ancient woods and forests of England with their imagery of wildlife and uncontaminated nature. You can listen fragments of fascinating folk tales and dream of outlaws and rebels, kings and warriors moving around in the mist of time... Acoustic and electric parts are perfectly intertwined to create a magical, pastoral atmosphere and if you like bands such as Gryphon or Amazing Blondel I'm sure you'll love this album as well.
