Biography

On the cover of Anastasis, Dead Can Dance’s first album in 16 years: a field of sunflowers, ripened, and then blackened, by the sun, standing with sad, slightly crowned heads. Less dead than dormant, the heads and stems will one day be chopped, but then via the roots, will return. For Anastasis is the Greek word for ‘resurrection’ and the seemingly dead will dance ...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best 31 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Don't listen to the criticism of this as a weak album, I've got all their albums and this is one of the best. The smooth blending of North African, Native American and an overall gothic splendour is incredible. The Song of the Stars and the Song of the Disposessed are just beautiful, an essential DCD album (and they finished on a high note)

5.0 out of 5 stars pure happiness 16 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although I understand why the fans of the ealier work of DCD did not really like this album, it is my favourite one.
We hear all kind of world influences from Latino America to Africa and BP & LG take us to another level with their brillant voices, singing together several times throughout the album unlike the previous ones where they were singing separately.
And the quality of the sound is fantastic. Dont hesitate one second and get yourself a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must have for any fan 4 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl
This album is phenomenal. Although very diferent from the stuff that they usually come out with, Spiritchaser is a definite must have for any Dead Can Dance fan. With a tribal feel and African/Arabic overtones they create a sense of time and space that is carried through the entire album tirelessy, leaving the listener ready to press 'repeat'

Dead Can Dance have a fantastic ethereal sound combining medieval music and Gregorian chants with some new twists. This album has some African and Asian influences. It doesn't have the beauty of some of their other albums but it does have a new edge to it. If you're a DCD fan it's definitely worth a look but if you trying them for the first time I'd go for something like "A Passage In Time" or "Aion"

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic timeless music 3 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Amazing album. I only wish i had discovered it in 1996 when it was made. This coup;e of musicians have created such atmospheric layered and shamanic music that it will blow your mind....especially played at full volume with candles lit and having a drink with friends as we did at christmas time. Ethereal at times the content fully explores the weight of the title..Spiritchaser. They are sensitive musicians, she has a beautiful voice. At times makes me think of Haitian musician Toto Bissanthe (I think that's how you spell it), repetitive, rhythmic, sensuous layered, travelling through time and space, it will put you in a trance, guaranteed. The female singer has the quality of many ethnic singers but also the clarity and feel of byzantine and middle eastern singing. She is very accomplished and controlled with a rich tone to her singing.
well worth buying

5.0 out of 5 stars Open up a Pineal Gland 24 Feb 2014
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Europeans" heading off to the "savage continent" were always both fearful and drawn to the majesty of the Congo and its allure. Capturing the early 19th Century imaginations of a place yet untainted by "civilisation" it drew upon the various fantasies of the romantics who wanted to escape the industrial grind of the 19th Century and discover freedom. Turning over the tables of the culture of manners in these "untamed" lands the coatings of civilisation could be unbuttoned and to run around naked become the desire.

Dreams which have often coarsed through the dull European imagination of other climes, and holidays are the trip forward into the future or the past, where the world is mapped according to a romantic ideal. The tourist agent knows roughly what is required and the cardboard scenery is sized and rendered into place.

So there is some trepidation with these tunes. Are they part of that drift into a romanticised world where the European learns their righteous views are not worth a jot when it comes to survival, or does it entice the imagination with an erotic whisper into the ear of salaciousness, desire, dreams and escape?

This is one of those albums which takes some time to work. It is about communicating with the spirits as envisaged within the 21st Century and connected back to the past, but what they have done is moved away from Bazaar and the Carny Show and then beyond Leni Riefenstahl imagery to evoke some other ethereal spiritual dimension. It is the antithesis of the office world where the focus is pretty much on management gobblespeak. As an album it provides an entry into a daydream and for the modern mind which has been finely ground, that cannot be a bad thing.
