iTunes Review

After a 14-year hiatus, Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry reunited for Anastasis, an album that expands the classic Dead Can Dance sound while also delivering songs that feel like warm reprisals of the band’s most beloved motifs. The duo’s reformation was a momentous occasion, a sentiment that's heralded in “Children of the Sun,” a slow-burning epic that feels huge and climatic in just the right fashion. At the same time, “Anabasis” could be something from The Serpent’s Egg, from 25 years earlier, with Gerrard’s voice snaking around a carefully plucked melody. “Amnesia” and “Kiko” echo even earlier stages of the duo’s lifespan, specifically their first albums, which utilized ethereal drones and slow marching rhythms. This isn't to suggest Anastasis is an attempt to rekindle the past. On the contrary, the album is powerful precisely because Gerrard and Perry have matured as musicians and individuals. Rather than self-plagiarism, the reprisal of old ideas becomes a re-exploration of the contents of their relationship. The underlying image behind this work is that of two old partners revisiting the changed landscape of their past.

Once again, nothing short of what can be expected from DCD. Sorry, but in my opinion no one musician or band can come close to the virtuosity and creative genius that is Dead Can Dance. Their music beckons emotions from deep inside your soul.

Majestic and uplifting!

the vibe is back

No group has the magnetic vibrato of DCD. Didn’t even know they recorded a new album, their sound pulled me through so many different phases so many years ago. Now to hear them again in my 60’s is like an old friend, a fine wine that I have not seen or opened in years only to realize their voices, their sound has matured like a friend/should, awesome...

Dead Can Dance combine elements of European folk music -- particularly music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance -- with ambient pop and worldbeat flourishes. Their songs are of lost beauty, regret and sorrow, inspiration and nobility, and of the everlasting human goal of attaining a meaningful existence. Over the course of their career, Dead Can Dance have featured a multitude of members, but two musicians have remained at the core of the band -- guitarist Brendan Perry and vocalist Lisa Gerrard....
