Together since 1981, Australian fusion band Dead Can Dance (known by their fans as DCD) are making a return to Montreal after a long absence. The duo is vocalist Lisa Gerrard and guitarist Brendan Perry. They started out with a few more members, but after an extended break up period that lasted from 1998 to 2005 they have been a duo since. It is amazing that they are still together at all Gerrard and Perry were a couple then broke up in 1989, but they continued to work and write together.
Their most recent album release was entitled Anastasis. It was the band’s first album in 16 years. Despite all the passing years the band sounds as fresh and strong as ever.
Their music has been called many different things from New Age to Dream Pop to Ambient to Folk to Neo Classical, and even Gothic Rock. Whatever you want to call it bottom line they are a fusion of many different musical styles.
