Shadow of Fear

  • Cabaret Voltaire - Shadow of Fear
20th November 2020 / 2LP, CD or Tape / Mute
“The music on Shadow of Fear is frequently so forceful and alive that it precludes the sensation that plagues a lot of new music by rebooted “classic” artists: you never feel like you’d be better off listening to one of their old albums.”

Cabaret Voltaire

Shadow of Fear


Richard H Kirk at the helm for the first new Cabaret Voltaire release in some twenty plus years.

Shadow of Fear is Cabaret Voltaire’s first studio album in 26 years. Richard H. Kirk is the sole remaining member; he’s released many acclaimed solo albums, having invented bleep techno via his groundbreaking work in Sweet Exorcist. Kirk has formed this new album from a series of pulverising live shows. The tone and personality of CV is ingrained in its core as it dances across techno, dub, house, 1970s Germany and general esoteric explorations coupled with mangled vocal samples.
