I love Dead Can Dance. I've listened to them for years, and I actually had the honor of seeing them live in Chicago during their 2005 tour.

They are indeed hard to categorize. I just consider them Spiritual.

They did in fact break up in 1998. They really only reformed for the 2005 world tour, as Brenden and Lisa are always involved in other things these days.

Heard of the others, never quite got around to checking them out.

Wow, that was subtle. Took me a minute to get that.

Two pieces of Thriller trivia:

1. I was djing at a Halloween party last year, and I discovered that the song beatmatches _perfectly_ into Rotersand's Exterminate, Anihilate, and Destroy. (for those unfamiliar with Rotersand, it's a really heavy industrial song, with some Dr. Who samples.)

2. On the dvd for Final Fantasy, Spirits Within, there is an easter egg that has the characters from the movie dancing to Thriller. The animation is exactly matched to the dancing in the video for the song.

I thought they broke up. Do they have a tour planned for 2007?
