Dead Can Dance

Dead Can Dance was a band comprised of Lisa Gerrard[?] and Brendan Perry[?]. Formed in Melbourne in 1981 and initially based in Australia, they disbanded in 1999.

Assigning a musical genre to Dead Can Dance is difficult, as their style was particularly eclectic. However, their early work could be considered goth music. In their later work, after The Serpent's Egg[?], Dead Can Dance would take as sources ancient or foreign music from around the world, giving them a very distinctive style. As a result their later albums sound exceedingly different from the first three.


There also exists a live album, Toward the Within[?], and a compilation, A Passage in Time[?].
