The Arm Of The Lord - Cabaret Voltaire

   (0 reviews)

Cabaret Voltaire's 1985 album, The Arm Of The Lord, hits on American idealism with a hard edged sampler heavy sound. The duo retains an earthy analog sound with synth lines and sound bytes. The album is their seventh record and it's original title was shortened for it's US release. It's original title was The Covenant, The Sword And The Arm Of The Lord. The record charted to #57 in the UK. The band featured sound bytes from TV and films as well as a Charles Manson interview. The main members of the band, Stephen Mallinder and Richard H. Kirk, had their share of controversial issues that had to be worked out between the band and the record label.
