I’m very pleased to make this announcement:
The (very) special vinyl edition of Acrostichon‘s debut album, “Engraved in Black” is available on pre-order NOW at http://doomentia.com/ !!!
In the making for quite some time, and with reason.
I spent a lot of time on this edition and tried to make it as special as possible, with the incredible support of Doomentia’s Lukas, who also put his heart and soul into this release. As one of the founder members of Acrostichon and having been the premier graphic artist for merchandise and covers, even after I left the band, this release is very special to me.
This ultimate anniversary edition is totally filled to the brim with old and new artwork that I made for Acrostichon over the 1989-2012 period and a load of photos from that same era. For the first time all lyrics are included and all songs are accompanied by liner notes. The introductions are written by the Legendary Master singer/bassplayer Paul Speckmann (a longtime friend), Acrostichon singer/bassplayer Corinne van den Brand and me.
The “regular” edition includes the original album, presented in a gatefold sleeve, which on the inside includes a full-colour 24-page booklet. As an extra there’s a poster of the original black and white painting in a full A1 size! And that’s the “regular” edition?!!?! Cool or what!
Specs: special casewrapped gatefold with glued-in 350gsm jacket | 24pgs full-coloured massive booklet | A1 poster | black vinyl | limited to 400 copies.
DIE HARD EDITION!
To top that off, this edition is also available in this Die hard edition. Apart from all the features in the “regular” edition, this one comes in red (oxblood) vinyl and includes an exclusive backpatch.
Be sure to check it out!
Specs: special casewrapped gatefold with glued-in 350gsm jacket | 24pgs full-coloured massive booklet | A1 poster | Oxblood vinyl | high quality backpatch | limited to 100 copies.
This is easily the coolest vinyl design I’ve done yet!
