Debut album of Elvaan Ibanfure.

"Ōkami" (Meaning: "Wolf" in Japanese) is a conceptual instrumental album, based in the stories in the "Sheol" universe written by Elvaan Ibanfure. Ōkami is the first part of a trilogy , a fantastic cinematic journey of complex emotions where the main character travels within dreams and realities and discovers through the story, truths about himself and the world surrounding him.


Captured Howls: 5/5 "Elvaan Ibanfure takes cinematic rock and metal to a whole new level on Ōkami, There’s not really a way to overstate the brilliance of this work. That’s not just hyperbole – it actually shimmers and shines like a brilliant gemstone or something."

Metal Trenches: 8.3 / 10 "Ōkami is the perfect album for those looking for immersive, atmospheric music. It's prog for classical music fans, and classical music for fans of prog. If you love both, then this is an absolute must-listen"

Return To My Blood: 8.5 / 10 "Ōkami is a vertiginous journey that needs to be enjoyed eyes closed, it's repetition value is huge, every time the album is played, new elements appear. Highly satisfactory and with a heart full of humility but also, greatness"

Escarto: 8.5/10 "Imagine the epicness of Mechina with progressive tendencies of solo artists like Roman Khrustalev and the Post-Metal soul of bands like BLAK. As a result we get this impressive journey full of sounds and tendencies called Ōkami"

Melanie Forey: 9/10 "Ōkami is an epic journey full of nostalgic hints that takes you away from the monotony of life, a journey through time, epochs and feelings. Thank you Elvaan Ibanfure for being truthful to yourself in a world fearful of being true"
