Sieben - Ogham Inside the Night (2005)

Driving, hypnotic neofolk. Layer upon layer of violin over simple, propulsive drum patterns, and understated but emotive vocals, with various guests and instrumental embellishments throughout. Among the more accessible pure neofolk records I've heard.

Track listing:
1. Ogham the Sun
2. Ogham the Spirit
3. Ogham in the Soul
4. Ogham the Moon
5. Ogham the Melody
6. Ogham the Knowledge
7. Ogham on the Hill
8. Ogham Inside the Night
9. Ogham the Blood
10. Ogham in the Ground
11. Ogham the Blade
12. Ogham Carved the Tree

We saw Death in the field and ciphered in the stars
He said he'd plant a seed to show us
How it ends is how it must start
