Final Veil by Final Veil
Review by Teresa Fisher

Final Veil’s debut self-titled album captivates listeners’ right from the first song. At first listen, the band Enigma came to mind, as I found that I was tapping my toes to the beats but was also brought to a calm state of mind. Final Veil’s first album is one that has something for all dancers as it mixes traditional Egyptian rhythms with electronic beats, house, trip hop, drum and bass as well as vocals. This album transports the listener into a dreamy dance state of mind. Intro, the album’s first track starts off with mid-tempo drumming and distinct zagareets that can be heard in the background. Intro sets the stage for what is to come. Tracks like Just a Memory, Mission Over, Habibi Ya Ayni and In the Twilight hold steady with Middle Eastern influences while tracks like From the Other Side, Pied Piper, Awakening, and Taken lend influences from both house music and electronica. Cora Camille, Final Veil’s founder, was so inspired by the beauty and powers that Egyptian music has, it lead her to learn to play Middle Eastern music. This brought her to England and musician/producer Hossam Ramzy. When Camille returned to home to the States, she put together Final Veil. The album was released in 2010 and is available on iTunes, and Amazon.
