On its 22nd anniversary — after years of requests from the fans — Aurelio Voltaire’s 1998 debut The Devil’s Bris is issued on vinyl. The 500-copy limited edition 140-gram orange & black swirled vinyl is a lovely addition to the spookiest of LP collections. It includes a full color lyric sleeve with never-before-seen vintage photos of Voltaire. The album has been meticulously remastered from the original mixdown DAT tape.
His 1998 debut contains “When You’re Evil,” one of his most-loved tracks.
Something wicked this way comes: Voltaire. Direct from the underground New York goth scene emerges 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.
