This is a one minute sample of the song "As the Bell Rings the Maypole Spins" by Dead Can Dance from the CD Aion. Its hard to catgorize their music, it been described as Dark Wave or Goth, it uses ancient instruments. Brenden Perry and Lisa Gerrard sing music that somehow sounds very old and tribal. The group broke up in the early Nineties but recently went on tour (2005). The music is, I think you'll agree, haunting and powerful.
