Dead Can Dance – Spiritchaser. Label: 4AD – CAD 6008 CD. Format: CD, Album. Dead Can Dance's last studio album might also be one of their strongest, most mature, and most melancholy. the feeling that great things can't last forever. Although I get that feeling somewhat when listening to this, even more importantly I get the feeling that this amazing body of work Dead Can Dance has created over the years lives on into the future
On Spiritchaser, instead of their traditional medieval/Eastern sound, DCD show a very strong tribal African and Caribbean influence. Despite the change of ‘scene’ it still has a very recognisable Dead Can Dance sound throughout. The album is much more percussion heavy than previous DCD albums. While on their earlier releases they would sometimes use nothing more than a drum machine, five people worked on the percussion here. The percussionists do an incredible job of creating complex and very lively tribal rhythms
Spiritchaser" is overall another quality album release by Dead Can Dance and if you can appreciate the more dominant ethnic influences on the album this one might be right down your alley. Dead Can Dance's final album sees the band steering in a heavily world music direction, and they seem particularly keen on appropriating Australian aboriginal music and fusing them with elements of Western rock music.
Spiritchaser is Dead Can Dance's seventh and last studio album, and sees them forging deeper into realms of ethnic music. Unfortunately, this is also their least successful album musically, and is a bad place for anyone unfamiliar with the group to start their explorations. One criticism leveled at recent prior albums by the group was that the duo of Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard appeared to be getting more and more disconnected from one another musically, with albums featuring a succession of "his" and "her" songs. An instrumental outtake from the Spiritchaser recording sessions, Sambatiki, was released as part of the 1996 concert tour souvenir book, and also appears on the DCD box set. It features the same drumming, twangy electric guitar and ethnic instrumentation as much of the rest of the album, but somehow works better than most tracks that unfortunately made it on to the final release.
The final album before Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry went their separate ways, Spiritchaser was recorded entirely at Quivvy Church, Perry’s personal studio in Ireland. The album shows just how far the duo had come in their 15 years together. They started out as punks and eventually fashioned their own form of musical mysticism, but Spiritchaser is the first album that abandons any attempts at aggression
Spiritchaser (1996) is the seventh studio album by Dead Can Dance. Spiritchaser is the last album before Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard went their separate ways. Nierika (Remastered).
