Their seventh studio album was released in 1996, and focused on the more percussive, tribal side of the group's music. It was their first studio album since 1993's "Into The Labyrinth".
7 (out of 10) - "...Dead Can Dance are big on moods....it gets more tribal, more textured. Melody tends to go walkabout, but that's OK because there's always a good chant or bizarre musical instrument to liven things up..." --Nme
"...SPIRITCHASER descends from the duo's usual nether atmospheres into a realm of tribal percussion and chant, casting a comprehensive net over various world music traditions....Lisa Gerrard's voice [is as] gorgeous as always..." --Option
3 Stars - Good - "...the duo have stripped away Perry's melodramatic Scott Walker-isms and their Tudor madrigals for the more anthropological adventures of tribal beats and global folk textures..." --q
