Frayle is my favorite band right now. I honestly didn't think I would enjoy anything more than White Witch- damn, I was so wrong. 1692 is a delight from start to finish. Breathy female vocals are accompanied by the perfect tempo of doom and sludge, making it a sensual experience. I listen to this album just about every day- I wouldn't change a thing. aford520
For me, this is a perfect example of how amazing NWOTHM can be, because it sounds like a bunch of nerds just geeking out about Heavy Metal and Fantasy and being really good at it by coincidence!
So from one nerd to others: fantastic job!
p.s. Love the Moorcock references! Yordi V
