Even if at first it seemed 'lost' in the flood of bands that were riding the death-metal wave in the early 90's, despite the weak distribution and promotion skills of the label that released it back then, ACROSTICHON's debut soon proved to be a quite 'one-of-a-kind' album.

Not only were they the first band since Sabina Classen desecrated her microphone with HOLY MOSES to prove that yes, women could also have a brutal voice and attitude, but as a whole, 'Engraved In Black' was altogether a different beast.

Sublimed by Colin Richardson - yes, the same guy who had already produced CARCASS and BOLT THROWER and was about to teach new dirty tricks to both FEAR FACTORY and MACHINE HEAD - sonic expertise and consisted mostly of new versions of tracks originally written for their first two demos ('Epilogue' and 'Dehumanized'), this was no ordinary death-metal album.

Quite epic and scope and far more thrashy than the other Dutch bands that were striving back then such as GOREFEST, it remains to this day a classic no real old-school death-metal fan can live without.

Right after the release 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 anniversary edition with a massive 24 pages KILLER booklet full of old flyers, pictures, liner notes and the full set of lyrics, along with a brand-new cover.
