"There are certainly Celtic influences on the album, from the Gaelic lyrics to "The Coming of Lugh" to the haunting tin whistle solo in "Shasta the Wanderer." But there are African and Middle Eastern influences, too, plus a smattering of sensual gypsy spirit as well. It's definitely a multicultural experience. Cait McWhir's strong, lush vocals are strongly reminiscent of Dead Can Dance's Lisa Gerrard. In fact, I'd be surprised if several members of Haunted By Waters didn't learn a few things at the Dead Can Dance altar. That's not to suggest this is a copycat band; the Haunted By Waters sound is entirely its own."
