Line-up
Mariusz Duda (Riverside) - vocals, instruments

Description/Reviews
On album number seven Duda extends his musical explorations to include dark Scandinavian and Slavic folk referencing bands like Heilung or Wardruna. Through Shaded Woods is completely devoid of electronics and is the first album in Duda’s discography, on which he plays all instruments. 
Mariusz Duda appears to have put the personal darkness that inspired his previous albums behind him, as more optimistic elements shine through in his new music. The album becoming musically "brighter" as it progresses – from the atmospheric introduction of "Navvie" through to the title track, which leads the listener to a melodious, trance like "Oblivion", echoing the style of Dead Can Dance.
