Escapexstacy is the debut album of Finnish gothic metal band Poisonblack. It was released on February 17, 2003 in Germany, February 25, 2003 in the United States and Canada, and March 8, 2003 in Japan. Amy Sciarretto gave a favourable review in CMJ New Music Monthly, writing that "Escapexstacy boasts gorgeous and progressive Euro-rock, which never gets too heavy..."[1]

The song "The Exciter" was featured in an episode of Viva la Bam, entitled "Where's Vito?", during a scene where Vito Margera destroys Bam Margera's beloved Hummer via being pushed into a quarry.
