Dead Can Dance

reviewer: Yasmin La Ronde
Dead Can Dance are to release their latest single from their album, ‘Anastasis’, their first album in 16 years; ‘Opium’ is the first installment of the new Dead Can Dance.
Selling out London’s Royal Albert Hall within 48 hours of tickets being released, Dead Can Dance are set to make an impact after 16 years.
Since the release of ‘Spiritchaser’ in 1996, Dead Can Dance has hidden in the shadows of their music, but 2012 is a new era for the Australian duo.
Bringing light to their single ‘Opium’, it provides a new age feel, something quite different from what is usually presented. Don’t be put off by the uneasiness of this track; it requires an intense listen, in order to totally immerse yourself into the world of Dead Can Dance.
It is a wayward and intriguing track into an unknown world of Dead Can Dance, don’t be put off from the change in direction from ‘Spiritchaser’.
‘Opium’ is definitely a track not to be missed out on, currently being released as a free download, don’t miss out on a free insight into ‘Anastasis’.
