***HARDCORE PUNK ROCKERS’ DEBUT ‘DEEP ROOTED’ ALBUM RELEASED NOVEMBER 22ND ON STEAMHAMMER /SPV***

“Engrained are a bunch of hardcore punk nutters from Hannover. The ghosts of the Pistols and the Damned can be heard along with the muscle of Black Flag. The guitars are abrasive, the tone angry and the vocals sound as though a fight is about to break out any minute. For those of you who don't know any better, this is punk in its raw, aggressive, angry, state and not the polished radio friendly tripe masquerading as something it is not. Can you ask for any more from a punk EP?” 7/10, Kris - Rock City Review of ‘Anger Roots & Rock N’ Roll’ EP 31.3.10

Underground hardcore punk injected filthy rock n’ rollers Engrained, who have built up a massive live following in their native Germany since their inception in the early 90’s, release their debut album, ‘Deep Rooted’, on Steamhammer / SPV, on November 22nd.

‘Deep Rooted’, the follow-up to Engrained’s highly acclaimed ‘Anger, Roots & Rock N’ Roll’ EP, (released in March 2010 on SPV), contains thirteen ferocious, fluid, hard driving, fist-pumping, catchy tunes, all expertly recorded, mixed and mastered by producer Tommy Newton (UFO, Guano Apes, Helloween etc).

Engrained, a visceral rock band who hail from Sarstedt, near Hannover, have honed their razor sharp sound down headlining numerous club tours of Germany and supporting the likes of The Dickies, Gluecifer, Peter Pan, US Bombs, Leatherface, The Guv’nors and many more around Europe over the years. Following the release of ‘Deep Rooted’, Engrained will support Peter And The Test Tube Babies on their December 2010 German tour.

Prior to signing to SPV in 2010, Engrained had self released one mini-album and four EP’s, plus had a number of tracks featured on various sampler albums, such as the hugely successful Husker Du tribute, ‘Case Closed’, alongside Sick Of It All, Motorpsycho etc, in 1994.

Now ‘Deep Rooted’, a rough, polished, rock ’n’ roll diamond of an album, chock full of filthy, metallic, rocking riffs and deep, gnarly, vicious yet melodic vocals, is all set to catapult Engrained, one of Germany’s best kept hardcore secrets, into the rock world’s heady stratosphere.
