Doomentia press release:

Sometimes, you just don‘t think about how much you care aboutsomething until you realize it‘s gone. Even if at first it seemed‚lost‘ in the flood of bands that were riding the death-metal wave inthe early 90‘s, despite the weak distribution and promotion skills ofthe label that released it back then, ACROSTICHON‘s debut soon provedto be a quite ‚one-of-a-kind‘ album. Not only were they the first bandsince Sabina Classen desecrated her microphone with HOLY MOSES toprove that yes, women could also have a brutal voice and attitude, butas a whole, ‚Engraved In Black‘ was altogether a different beast.

Sublimed by Colin Richardson – yes, the same guy who had alreadyproduced CARCASS and BOLT THROWER and was about to teach new dirtytricks to both FEAR FACTORY and MACHINE HEAD – sonic expertise andconsisted mostly of new versions of tracks originally written fortheir first two demos (‚Epilogue‘ and ‚Dehumanized‘), this was noordinary death-metal album. Quite epic and scope and far more thrashythan the other Dutch bands that were striving back then such asGOREFEST, it remains to this day a classic no real old-school death-metal fan can live without.
Right after the released of the classy and long sold-out vinyl only ‚Return To Killburg‘ album that featured their 2009 reunion show and a first CD reissue, ‚Engraved In Black‘ finally gets the treatment it deserves in LP format, thankfully through the ever-faithful DOOMENTIA label. And if you‘re accustomed to its high-standards, you should know already what you‘re gonna get. A ‚deluxe‘ twentieth anniversaryedition with a massive 24 pages KILLER booklet full of old flyers,pictures, liner notes and the full set of lyrics, along with abrand-new cover. BUY!!!!
