    As Goth as They Get!

    Though many have titled and "un-titled" Dead Can Dance as being a goth band, one cannot disagree with that assumption when listening to their debut album. Dead Can Dance's self titled album is a masterpiece of dark, gloomy instrumentals and vibrant ethereal ballads. From the opening instrumental "The Fatal Impact" to the four piece instrumental known as the "Garden of Arcane Delights", the music will engulf listeners in other dimension-like sound. Lisa Gerrard's vocals are magnificent on every song she performs in, the highlight being the tribal/universal song that is set apart from the rest of the CD: "Frontier". Brendan Perry also has his chance to shine in the album while using the rich, warm voice he is know for utilizing: the best of which are the bouncy ethereal dance known as "The Trial" and the equally exciting gloom song known as "Fortune". The two vocalists come together halfway through the CD to produce the beautiful "Ocean" and then reunite/couple the song with the track "Musica Eternal". Then there's always the ever classic "Passage in Time" which went on to characterize their evolution from a "Goth" band to a more "Medieval/Period/Universal" band. Without a doubt, if one is exploring genres of music, this is an absolute must have for Gothic music. I also advise that people go on to hear their equally beautiful "Universal/Earthy" music as they evolved further on in time, with albums such as "Serpent's Egg" and "Within the realm of a dying sun".
