With its two sides split between Perry and Gerrard 's vocal efforts, Within the Realm of a Dying Sun serves Xavier - Dead Can Dance - Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun both a display for the ever more ambitious band and a chance for the two to individually demonstrate their awesome talents. Beginning with the portentous "Anywhere Out of the World," a piece that takes the deep atmospherics of "Enigma of the Absolute" to a higher level with mysterious, chiming bells, simple but effective keyboard bass and a sense of vast space, the album finds Dead Can Dance on a steady roll.
Once again a range of assistant musicians provide even more elegance and power to the band's work, with a chamber string quartet plus various performers on horns, woodwind, and percussion. Impressive though the remainder of the first side is, Gerrard 's showcase on the second half Infernal Wizardry - The Wizard - Ancient Tome Of Arcane Knowledge even more enveloping and arguably more successful.
The martial combination of drums and horns that start "Dawn of the Iconoclast" call to mind everything from Wagner to Laibachbut Gerrard 's unearthly alto, at its most compelling here, elevates it even higher.
