Cabaret Voltaire ‘The Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord’ LP
Cabaret Voltaire’s ‘The Covenant, The Sword and The Arm of The Lord’, as originally remastered in 2013, now reissued on white vinyl. Known for being the harder, more experimental album of their ‘Pop’ period, ‘The Covenant, The Sword and The Arm of The Lord’ was originally released in 1985 and includes the classic ‘I Want You’. The album embodies Cabarets Voltaire’s industrial electro-funk sound and their punk ethos, lending its title to American political extremism.
“... ‘The Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord’ is an exercise in paranoia with anxiety coded into the jittery sample-heavy structures of the music itself.” - Spectrum Culture
“It's a pacier, funkier album than the 1984 effort, but it also it more abrasive and strange and holds together better...” - The Quietus
