congratulations
21 April 2006 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

thank you for this performance. i felt my soul upraised. i don't understand why you are called the promo tors of the "dark wave". probably because you treated the problem of death. i think (and all my friends also) that you treated the problem of attitude in front of the death, with the soul full of life!! i think that death is an aspect of life, and all the comments near the death problem are parts of life. my people (romanian people) have a history of minimum 4000 years. all along the way, we change our point of view about face the death. for the beginning, we burn our deaths and finalize the evolution by buried them, like any other Christian. but the feeling in front of death was the same: no fear. in the beginning (about 2500 years ago) we believed in a god named "Zamolxe", a man who "lived" seven years in a "living grave" (a hole in the earth) and after these years, he came out full of wisdom of God, knowing the meanings of life and death. after he promoted his knowledge, the people had no any more fear of death. our wars, in that time, with the roman empire, were very important to the history (in Rome, still exists the "Traian Columna") a sculpture that reveals the war between my ancient people and the roman empire (lead by the emperor Traian). i know that you are very interested of ancient history (not only music history), that is i am telling you that. we are feeling very close of your creation because our fearless in front of death. our original culture is treating death just like a transgression to a different way of life. i listen the songs of "dead can dance" in the show "toward the within" and i felt really refreshed. thank you Lisa Gerrard, Brendan Perry, Robert Perry and friends. keep going!!
