For the first time since it's initial release in 1985, the third and final album from female-fronted speed metal pioneers ACID appears again on vinyl. Deluxe packaging includes a 12" x 24" insert featuring photos hand-picked by the band, an interview, liner notes from Classic Rock / Metal Hammer writer Malcolm Dome, plus, for the first time ever - lyrics!

 
In 1985, when Acid released their third and final album, the band was already grappling with internal tensions that threatened to destabilize their lineup. However, this didn't mean that "Engine Beast" was a half-hearted effort. In fact, it stands out as the thrash pioneers' most refined and, dare we say, "polished" work. A significant factor behind this refinement was the contribution of the renowned Dutch sound engineer Erwin Musper, known for his work on stadium rock successes like Def Leppard's "Hysteria" and Scorpions' "Crazy World."

Nonetheless, the core duo of Acid, consisting of drummer Geert "Anvill" Ricquier and vocalist Kate de Lombaert, continued to shine. Their sound alternated between a more feminine Accept at their heaviest and many of the thrash acts they not only preceded but also greatly influenced. With enhanced songwriting skills and a heightened sense of melody, Kate's versatile voice took the spotlight. She brought to mind a powerhouse version of Warlock's Doro Pesch, especially in standout tracks like the energetic 'Warriors Of The Dark' and the innovative 'Big Ben,' which celebrated metal as a genre with the signature chime of London's Palace of Westminster.
