The Online ODOKURO Premiere!

You can now watch Voltaire’s newest animated short film, Odokuro, on his YouTube-channel!

Site Updates & Next Album Info

Vorutania has been updated with some minor fixes, including some lyric corrections and an overhaul of the Call of the Jersey Devil-page. All of the Artbeat Voltaire-songs are now (finally) also available for you to listen to on the Artbeat Voltaire-page.

Many thanks to kim Palao for helping out by pointing out errors and reporting broken links!

And in other news: Voltaire has apparently already started work on the next album!

In his own words:  “Started work in the next album today! It’s going to be a Deathrock album called “Raised by Bats.” The first song I’m working on is called The Masquerade. I wrote it when I was 17! The main instrument is…. (wait for it) Harpsichord! It brings to mind a mix of Deathrock and Visual Kei.” (via Voltaire’s Facebook)

Call of the Jersey Devil – Cover Reveal and more

The cover image for Call of the Jersey Devil has now been revealed.

JerseyDevil_cover

There’s also a publication date: May 28th 2013
and an ISBN: 978-1-939392-00-8

And the publisher is Spence City.

Here’s the book blurb:
Five suburban mall rats and a washed up Goth singer find themselves stranded in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey where they discover two horrifying truths: The Jersey Devil, hellspawn of folklore and legend, is real; and New Jersey (as many already suspected) is the gateway to Hell!

With the help of one lone witch, this small group must face off against their deepest fears and the most unholy monsters in a battle where their very souls, the world they live in, and any chance of returning to Hot Topic in one piece is at stake!

The first novel by musician and horror media personality, Aurelio Voltaire, Call of the Jersey Devil is a hilarious and terrifying homage to 80s horror and genre films. Like a mad doctor, Voltaire has Frankensteined together elements of Evil Dead, The Breakfast Club, Poltergeist, and This is Spinal Tap to create a creature feature that will have you laughing out loud when you’re not glancing nervously over your shoulder.

Vorutania Website & Forum Relaunch!

Vorutania is officially re-opened now!

Everything SHOULD be in working order at this point, but if you spot any broken images, broken links or other things that are generally broken, do not hesitate to contact me and let me know or even just leave a comment in the comment field below the news. :)

All of the old newsposts are not functional anymore, which is something that happened when they were moved from the old system to the new. This will not be fixed, but if anyone has any questions about older entries, feel free to ask about it and I’ll try to dig up sources or videos from them.

In addition to the website, there is also a NEW FORUM. The old forum got hacked and unfortunately I decided to move it to a free forum software for safety measures. All posts and old accounts got lost in this process, so if you were interested in it, you should definitively (re-)join the new forum.

The website also has added page on BiTrektual and the lyrics for the songs on the album.

And lastly, I just wanted to thank the people who’s visited the site during the move and tweaking periods for their patience. :)

The songs included are:
When You’re Evil, Anniversary, Ex-Lover’s Lover, Underground, All the Way Down, Life and Ravens Land.

Voltaire has, according to his Facebook Page, also started recording the demos for the upcoming album, BiTrektual. There will probably be ten songs on the album, and it will include: Screw The Okampa (I Wanna Go Home), Worf’s Revenge, The Sexy Data Tango, The USS Make Shit Up, Docking Bay 94, The Trouble with Tribbles, BiTrektual and the Doctor Who-song “It’s Bigger on the Inside”. It will also probably include Cantina.

The songs from Banned on Vulcan are being re-recorded with a full band and The USS Make Shit Up will include two new verses from the previous studio release. (The first of the new verses is about Star Trek: Enterprise and can be heard on the Live! album, the second is about the 2009 movie reboot.)Voltaire hopes he will get it done in time for Dragon*CON, which is held August 31 – September 3, 2012.
