Das San Diego Quartett AS I LAY DYING hat am 20. September 2019 sein siebtes Full-Length-Album Shaped By Fire über Nuclear Blast auf die Welt gebracht. Heute veröffentlicht die Band die Shaped By Fire (Deluxe Version), die auch Live- und Instrumentalversionen enthält als Neuinterpretationen der Originaltracks. Zur Feier bietet die Band den Fans das Live-Musikvideo zu “My Own Grave”. Schaut euch das Video von ihrer Show in München an, das von Mike Demellia geschnitten wurde.
Phil Sgrosso comments: “The initial idea was to create a deluxe version stemmed from leftover material written for the Shaped By Fire album. Some of it was re-purposed for b-sides and several tracks were used for the live show exclusively, until now.
More recently. we had an interest to recreate ‘My Own Grave’ into a more stripped-down/orchestral version inspired by the 90’s ‘Unplugged’ era that we all grew up with. We also became interested in a new version for ‘Redefined’, incorporating a heavier electronic element. The live versions for ‘Blinded’ and ‘My Own Grave’ were captured on our last European tour in Munich, which was one of the biggest and most high-energy shows to date.
For the first time ever, we’ve released an instrumental album version to showcase the musical aspect. Just like when we’re writing initial demos, the music is step one in captivating the listener’s attention so the intricacies and details of the music are a little more prevalent here.
It was a fun experience to breathe some new life back into Shaped By Fire. We’re all very proud of this album and are always encouraged by our fans’ support and enthusiasm for new AILD music over the past 20 years.”
