Scumbag From New York's alternative underworld comes Voltaire, an unusual melding of goth and folk with lyrics displaying great wit and a slightly cynical bent that somehow manage to bear the soul at times and relate stories at others. A surprising package indeed, but some dark fun to be had here! Favorite track: When You're Evil.

about

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.
