This Anglo-Australian duo is known for releasing complex albums featuring intricate narratives and melodies. Dionysus, their ninth musical work, is no exception. Though it can’t be defined by a single genre, the music of Dead Can Dance is nourished by world music and ancient musical traditions. It also includes a touch of gothic rock, which creates a solemn, mysterious, and elegant aura. In its seven movements, this album relates the myth of the Greek god Dionysus, telling a story that vacillates between Apollonian order and Dionysian chaos.
