I discovered the otherworld Gothiness of Dead Can Dance through their 1988 album, The Serpent’s Egg. I bought all their CDs until…well, until died and stopped dancing.
The last DCD record was Spiritchaser in 1996. Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry went their separate ways and that was that.
But there’s been a resurrection. A new album called Anatasis— from the Greek word ανάστασις (anástasis) meaning “resurrection,” of course–will be out later this year. Give a listen to this sample from the record.
