Trance To The Sun’s critically acclaimed third album, Venomous Eve (1995) is a masterpiece of gothic psychedelia. With an emphasis on lengthier, more minimalist arrangements, these nine elegant tracks have charmed, seduced, and enraptured two generations of dark music afficionados. Venomous Eve heralds the apex of Zoë Alexandra Wakefield’s vocal prowess, and also witnesses the induction of keyboard wizard Lucian S. Donato into the already established otherworldly realm of the band. The alchemy of these two mesmerizing talents flourishes amid the rhythmic and arrangement genius of multi-instrumentalist Ashkelon Sain. A must-have for all fans, and a truly awe inspiring starting point for new listeners.
