This departure grew steadily over the next few albums; with the release of the gorgeous, trancelike, gentle, hypnotic, powerful, apocalyptic albums 'The Burning World', 'White Light from the Mouth of Infinity', 'Love of Life', 'Soundtracks for the Blind', and many others, including the later Gira/Jarboe side project band 'World of Skin' releasing three albums, the band completely switched to this new style. After touring extensively around the world, they released a live album, 'Omniscience'. Many more compilation albums followed, such as 'Body to Body, Job to Job', and most of the early output was re-released in double-CD format. Now three years after the band's demise, Gira still writes, records, tours and plays with many different bands as well as solo, as does Jarboe, although she is now moving further into the realms of literature, writing for many different publications, specialising in dark erotica.
