Azfarat are a duo from Vermont that plays a progressive form of noise and this is a review of their 2015 album "Yggdrasil And The Plague Of Frogs" which was released by Bugs Crawling Out Of People.
Thunder and rain sounds start off the album along with some drone soundscapes a few seconds later and after awhile the music starts getting more diverse along with some avant garde style synths being added onto the recording which also gives the music an epic atmosphere at times and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Elements of industrial and power electronics can be heard in some parts of the songs as well as a decent amount of harsh noises and most of the tracks are instrumental while one song does bring in some acoustic musical instruments as well as spoken word samples being added in some songs and as the album progresses more traces of ambient can be heard and all of the tracks sound very different from each other and drums are added on the last song along with soem aggressive industrial style vocals.
Azfarat plays a style of noise that is very progressive and diverse while having its harsh moments while other tracks display more of an experimental approach to genre and the production has a very dark and raw sound.
In my opinion Azfarat are a very great sounding progressive noise band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Teatime Of the Thunder God" and "Leave their Bodies For The Wolves". 8 out of 10.
