The Body Announces Expanded Edition of I Shall Die Here
I Shall Die Here / Earth Triumphant, is an expanded edition of the fourth full-length album by The Body, first released to widespread acclaim, and terror, in 2014.
Sharing their moribund vision with Bobby Krlic, aka The Haxan Cloak, the tried and true sound of The Body is mutilated by process and re-animated in a spectral state I Shall Die Here. Revisited a year short of its tenth anniversary, the album is expanded to include the previously unreleased Earth Triumphant, a full-length companion that would become I Shall Die Here under Krlic’s scalpel, showcasing The Body’s brutality in its most primal form.
With both albums revisited and remixed by The Body and Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets (Mdou Moctar, Model/Actriz, Lingua Ignota) and remastered by Matt Colton at Metropolis Studios, this is the definitive edition of a shocking classic of unbridled bleakness and innovation.
To mark today’s announcement, Jason Evans, long time collaborator of RVNG, returns with a video for “A Cloud Broke Open.” Evans produced and directed the short film At the Mercy of It All around the release of I Shall Die Here, which is well worth revisiting along this new visual reassembled from the film’s footage.
