Does anyone know the Australian band Dead Can Dance well?

I recently first heard their music through a gothic friend (they're quite popular in our subculture) and was very impressed by what I heard. It's very unique music, combining ethereal chants (reminding me of Enigma and Enya somewhat) with old instruments from all around the globe.
I'd like to hear more from them. Any songs or albums recommended?

PS: here's their first song: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA-On_oY4m0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA-On_oY4m0</a>

PS 2: the name has no occult or morbid connection whatsoever. The name just means: making dancable music with instruments that were not used for many years and that seemed dead and forgotten.
