Olam Ein Sof are a band from Brazil that plays a very medieval style of neo-folk and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Reinno de Cramfer".
Acoustic guitars start off the album bringing in a medieval folk music feeling and after awhile a variety of many different folk music instruments are added onto the recording and they give the songs more of a paganistic atmosphere and on the 2nd track melodic female vocals start becoming a huge part of the album.
The acoustic guitars on the album bring in a good mixture of finger picking and full chords and all of the tracks have an esoteric feeling to them and there is a good mixture of both vocal and instrumental tracks being present throughout the recording while one of the songs add in a small amount of spoken word parts which also brings in a very ritualistic feeling to the recording and towards the end there is a brief use of distorted and melodic sounding guitar leads.
Olam Ein Sof plays a style of medieval neo-folk music that captures the feeling and atmosphere of Europe's pre Christian days very well, the production has a very dark sound while the lyrics are written in the bands native tongue and cover Qabalah, Occultism, Myths and Ancient Stories themes.
In my opinion Olam Ein Sof are a very great sounding medieval neo-folk band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vimana" "Murmurio das Aguas" "Invocando a Lua Azul" and "Danca de Floresta". 8 out of 10.
