Messianic Ghosts has a similar vibe to Fallen Gods (ritual, ghostly), but a bit more experimental perhaps.

Wow, I'm glad I finally broke down and bought this! This woman has a drop-dead gorgeous voice, and the arrangements that Storey constructed around it are great as well. The disc starts with a beautiful and relatively straightforward folkish tune, but almost immediately goes sideways and ducks into some strange and dark alleys indeed. At times it gets rather creepy, (in a good way of course), other times the sounds decay into a glitchy, echoey blackness, but it never loses it's beauty and mystery. I'd call this one of Rapoon's best.
