2 stars "Frostbrent" most probably has to be considered as Thule's least progressive album, at least compared to "Natt" and "Graks" and as well to their debut and latest release "Liquid" as far as I could find informations about those ones. Although this album is still dominated by typical Scandinavian somber and melancholic atmosphere the overall tendency here goes rather towards guitar-based folksy gothic rock. Especially due to the similar throaty voice of the singer one gets at times the (false) impression to listen to a progressive type of Fields Of The Nephilim. Nevertheless there are a couple of tracks on here working quite well (namely the longer ones like "Æventyr " i.e.) and the addition of trumpet on some of them certainly helps a lot to differentiate from such bands. But unfortunately great moments are reallly sparse on this album and basically it's rather to be considered a solid guitar-dominated rock album than a progressive rock one. Honestly I couldn't recommend this one to any Prog fan who likes to check out Thule. Rather would I start with "Graks" or "Natt" to become more familiar with this interesting band.
