3 stars 3.5 really

Afforested is a progressive folk band from Kent, UK formed in 2007 by brothers Jonathan and Alex Betts. Thirs first full lenght album was release in sommer of 2012 named Surviving Remnants Of The Medieval Greenwood, they had aswell an EP released in 2009. Well, I was pretty surprised what I've hered here, folk acustic passages with solid keyboards added and all passages melted with progressive elements, makes from this release a very enjoyble one. The album is entirely instrumental, and the brothers handle all instruments to be heared here. The Celtic folk elements are also very present giving a pleasent atmosphere overall. Very nice keyboards passages, this type of prog folk I can listen every day, is not boring has , mellow parts, more up tempo and all the ingredients to be a very satisfaying release from start to finish. So, some similarities are with let's say Gryphon or in places with Gentle Giant in their most acustic phase.3.5 stars , enjoyble all the way, album available from their bandcamp page only in digital format at very low price, so don't hesitate to listen to this band, they are intresting.
