“The dark angel is back!!” (Sanctuary Magazine). On his year-2000 second album, “Voltaire takes a positively Goth subject matter approach, but the music and feel of the songs are decidedly cabaret / goth cabaret.” (Lexicon Magazine) “Almost Human is clearly the work of a clever but twisted mind stuck somewhere between pop genius and 18th Century lunatic minstrel.” (Meltdown, UK) “Sort of like Morrissey, given a string quartet & cross bred with a bitter gothy version of Weird Al Yankovich, right down to the polka.” (Dark Entries webzine)
On his debut release, Voltaire satirized the concept of Evil and the many ways it manifests itself in the world. Now, two years later, Voltaire returns with a more lighthearted look at life from the perspective of God’s angelic cast-off, Lucifer, driven by pride to attempt the first failed coup in history.
Singing in a deep, velvety croon with all the passion, sorrow and bitterness of a fallen angel, Voltaire has crafted an album full of haunting Old World melodies and memorable pop tunes that you won’t be able to get out of your head without a guillotine. Always the devilish wordsmith, Voltaire’s songs dance between the sardonic, the heartfelt and the absurd. Whether he is singing about a lost love or a public beheading, Voltaire effervesces in a playfully boisterous mix of wit and old-fashioned merriment.
Spontaneously full of mirth and dark humor, Almost Human blurs the gap between the 18th and 21st centuries. This is pop music for a parallel universe, where Morrissey is the Queen of England and electricity was never discovered. Cleverly combining classical instruments with present-day song structures, Voltaire’s New Wave band from the Victorian Era cavort through a cabaret suitable for the most contemporary of dance floors.
