“Dayton’s deliverers of dark damnation Engraved Darkness have mixed a smoldering pot of death, black, thrash and technical metal rolled out and used like sacrificial knives with violent intent. A four man played prophecy spewing out ominous omens with two members of Forces of Nature bringing a darker, more sinister mix of prearranged, apocalyptic chaos. Diabolical Scriptures can’t be stuffed or crammed into one category. Each tune, especially the loud ones, has their own swirling, aggressive wave of sinful talent. Raise the horns and give praise.”
"Daytons own death metal band Engraved Darkness took to the stage friday night at McGuffys House of Rock for the first of many shows lined up including a string of shows in Michigan then back to Ohio to open up for Victory Records artist Blackgaurd. They shared the stage with Forces of Nature and Misunderstood Friday night and totally destroyed! The set included all the favorites including "Die", "Deep Inside" and "Purity of Evil". They also unleashed two new songs flawlessly! I got the chance to join them onstage that night filling in on bass during most of the set with hardly any preparation. So a big thanks for letting me join them and be a part of an amazing night of music!"
