Cabaret Voltaire’s first studio album in 26 years is as hard-hitting now as ‘the conversation’ was back in ’94; an engrossing album of puddle-stomped synths and abrasive atmospheres.

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. “’Shadow of Fear’ taps into collective paranoia, pulsing and tormenting with samples that surreally expose unease in a developing dystopian world of our creating” 4/5 - narc magazine. “'Shadow of Fear' is a return to the proto-acid house magnificence of Cabaret Voltaire's early '80s work” 5/5 – the arts desk.
