Just barely a breath after the worldwide success of "Opheliac," EA emerges yet again from her studio she calls "The Asylum" with her latest work, "Laced / Unlaced," a Double Disc set featuring, no, not her voice, but her violin skills.
Disc 1, "Laced," represents her past, containing the worldwide release of EA's rare teenage classical violin recordings including works by Corelli, Bach, Leclair, and EA's own original compositions, all performed on period baroque instruments with lute, harpsichord, and cello accompaniment. Also included on "Laced" are several of EA's never-before-released live classical recordings featuring some of the most virtuosic violin playing we've ever heard.
Disc 2, "Unlaced," represents her future, in a metal-shredding, Yngwie-meets-Paganini-styled romp performed on her famously striped and bloodied electric violin. Written in the "Victoriandustrial," harpsichord-laden style of "Opheliac" but with a relentless, metal edge, "Laced / Unlaced" shows the evolution from child-prodigy classical violinist to reigning queen of the "shredolin," and beckons us ever deeper into EA's strange world of torturous insane asylums with a flick of her black-nail-polished fingertips.
