Dead Can Dance - Fortune Presents Gifts not According to the Book
Aion is the fifth studio album by Dead Can Dance, released in 1990. The first album Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perrywrote after the end of their romantic partnership, it was recorded at Perry's new estate, Quivvy Church in Ireland.
The male soprano David Navarro Sust contributes vocals to the first track.
The album cover shows a detail from the Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch's triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights(specifically, its central "Earth" panel).
Dead Can Dance is an English-Australian musical project formed in 1981 in Melbourne by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. The band relocated to London, England, in May 1982. Australian music historian Ian McFarlanedescribed Dead Can Dance's style as "constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty; African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern mantras and art rock."
Having disbanded in 1998, they reunited briefly in 2005 for a world tour and reformed in 2011, releasing a new album (Anastasis) and embarking on several tours.
