Dead Can Dance Share New Video “Act II – The Mountain”

Today, It’s the resurgence of Dead Can Dance, who has just released it’s latest album Dionysus, which is the duo’s first album in six years and consists of two acts across seven movements that represent the different facets of the Dionysus myth. “The Mountain” is the first movement of the album’s second act, where, explains Perry, “listeners will find themselves visiting Mount Nysa. This mountain was Dyonysus’ place of birth, where he was raised by the centaur Chiron, from whom he learned chants and dances together with Bacchic rites and initiations.”

Formed in Melbourne in 1981 by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, the style of DEAD CAN DANCE over eight previous studio albums can be described as compelling soundscapes of mesmerizing grandeur and solemn beauty that has incorporated African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern mantras, and art rock.
