Spiritchaser (CD, Album, Club). CAD 6008 CD. Dead Can Dance. ALR 215. Spiritchaser (Cass, Unofficial).
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.
Toward the Within (1994) is the first official live album of Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard's group Dead Can Dance. It contains 15 songs, of which only four appeared on their previous albums, and two of which were later re-recorded and included on Lisa Gerrard's first solo album, The Mirror Pool. The others previously existed only in live performances and unofficial bootlegs, but were not officially released until Toward the Within
Dead Can Dance is the debut studio album by Australian musical act Dead Can Dance. Think of the processes concerning life from death and death into life.

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, Dead Can Dance’s seventh album, was released in 1996 and was the final studio album the band released with 4AD (it was to be another 16 years until they reconvened to make their eighth, Anastasis). Again recording at Brendan’s Quivvy Church in Ireland and as hinted at by the album’s title, the band had moved their focus away from the traditional medieval and Eastern sound of their middle albums to work with African and Caribbean tribal rhythms.
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
