First album in 16 years! Dead Can Dance (sometimes referred to as DCD) is a world fusion music band that formed in Melbourne, Australia, in August 1981, by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. The band relocated to London in May 1982 and disbanded in 1998. Their 1996 album Spiritchaser reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top World Music Albums Chart. Australian music historian Ian McFarlane described Dead Can Dance as having an ambient style of world music that “constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty”.

Into the Labyrinth is the sixth album recorded by the Dead Can Dance duo Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. It marked a strong shift from the previous albums, putting ethnic music influences at the forefront as would be the case in the later albums. It was their first album completed on their own without the aid of guest musicians, and their first album to have a major-label release in the U.S., thanks to a distribution deal that 4AD had with Warner Bros. Records. It featured the single “The Ubiquitous Mr Lovegrove”.

Spiritchaser is the seventh studio album by Dead Can Dance, and the last before Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard went their separate ways. It expands on its exploration of world music, and like Into the Labyrinth, was recorded at Quivvy Church, Perry’s personal studio in Ireland.

The album was dedicated to Lisa Gerrard’s deceased brother, Mark Gerrard.

The track “Indus” contains a melody that is very similar to that of “Within You Without You”, a Beatles song that George Harrison wrote and recorded with Indian musicians in 1967. Although not deliberate, Perry and Gerrard were asked to contact Harrison for his permission to use it; he granted it, but the record company insisted that they give him partial songwriting credit on “Indus”.

Dancing isn’t just for the dead. After 6 years off the radar and two breakups, Dead Can Dance called upon Dionysus to send the living into a trance. The Melbourne duo, who started on 4AD in the dark wave era of Bauhaus and the Cocteau Twins, broke up in 1998 before returning to the studio in 2012 with the well-named Anastasis (the Greek word for “resurrection”). So, sixteen years of silence. With Dionysus, the DCD recipe has changed a little: the liturgic invocations give way to ancient traditional strings and percussion, and the pair’s vocals are stripped right down to give centre stage to the choirs. The uniqueness of this eleventh album resides in the concept that underlies it:
