Truly a landmark group in the history of apocalyptic folk. Their Music is all too often reminiscent of Current 93's best period, the time of Thunder Perfect Mind and the Inmost Light Trilogy...yet less narcissistic and more contemplative. But their offerings stand on their own, beautiful, immaculate, sincere, pure.

It is a shame that such beautiful music goes unknown by so many.

RAotIJ, with all of their similarity to Dead Can Dance and C93, never got any attention. And its a pity - female vocals are great, instrumentation is quite diverse and overall it sounds very nice. One of the reasons why they kept going for so long (almost 10 years) and yet remain obscure, in my opinion, is probably because they never wanted popularity/fame. But of course I might be wrong.
