The Devil's Bris

by Voltaire

Direct from the underground New York goth scene comes this strange brew of gypsy violins, driving rhythms, sardonic wit and turn-of-the-century mayhem.

Album Notes
Something wicked this way comes: Voltaire. Direct from the underground New York goth scene comes this strange brew of gypsy violins, driving rhythms, sardonic wit and turn-of-the-century mayhem. Combining beautiful old-world melodies with viciously sarcastic lyrics, The Devil's Bris is the Three Penny Opera of the twenty-first century. With Wagnerian bravado and Brechtian allure, Voltaire has crafted twelve songs of love, loss, revenge and dismemberment sure to bring a smile to even the darkest of souls.

A review from Gothic Revue:
This has been on my club playlist since I received a copy a few years ago. I’ve always thought that everyone knew who Voltaire was and was recently informed by my lovely Rachel (and my kids) that they had never heard of him, (or his music). So here is this review for all of you unVoltaire-ists This was Voltaire’s first release of music and it was very unlike most of Projekts other albums. Every song is created from a waltz melody and strung with wry and sarcastic lyrics over the top. Besides the now club staples, “When You're Evil”, and “Ex Lover’s Lover” I really enjoy Anniversary, The Man Upstairs, and Oweee from this collection the most. Voltaire also does Animation, comic books and action figure designs, (and is an executive producer for the new :24 hour horror channel.) what a busy Angel he must be. -Azrael Racek

Annika Baty

A funny, entertaining, and interesting album, which I highly recommend to anyone looking for something from the folk, rock, goth, or almost any other genre.

Ian Friedman

I thoroughly enjoyed this album. I enjoyed Ex Lover's Lover and The Man Upstairs the most! Whimsical, at times paranoid, creepy, and fun, I would highly recommend this CD.
