DEAD CAN DANCE / Live Happenings I-V (2012)

The series of 5 live EPs self-released by DCD via their website is now available from the same place as one complete purchase consisting of 21 tracks.
This is the part of the review where I attempt to describe the band’s sound using existing genre labels and find that I'm completely unable to do so.  Nothing I can say will come close to the Gothic beauty and ethereal purity of the work.  It either speaks to you on a personal level or it doesn't.  The media calls them neoclassical dark wave.  That’s as helpful as saying that Lisa Gerrard is a gal who can sing.
