As i lay dying a long march the first recordings album review

A Long March: The First Recordings is the first compilation album by American metal band As I Lay Dying. The album was released on May 16, 2006 through Metal Blade Records. It features their first album Beneath the Encasing of Ashes (2001), as well as re-recorded and original versions of the songs featured on their split album with American Tragedy.


The album was released because the band - as they said - "were a bit tired of seeing Beneath the Encasing of Ashes being sold for unreasonable prices ($90+ on eBay)", so they decided to re-release all of their early recordings in one package.

The compilation's title is the title of the 8th track from Beneath the Encasing of Ashes, making "A Long March" the title track.

Amongst 5 re-recordings, "Illusions" and "Reinvention" were specially recorded for this compilation in 2006, while other 3 ones were taken from the Frail Words Collapse sessions in 2003.
