Cold Spring have announced the official release of the soundtrack to Lars Von Trier’s controversial film Antichrist, available on physical format for the first time on September 6th.
Ten years after the film’s initial release, the extreme, provocative performances from Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg in Antichrist still have the power to shock, repulse and divide.
The sound design by Kristian Eidnes Andersen with Lars Von Trier, was composed using only natural sounds and samples (including internal body recordings). Each element was recorded specifically for the film and overseen by Von Trier, including a brand new, sombre performance of Händel’s 'Lascia Ch’io Pianga', recorded in Kastelskirken church in Copenhagen, 2009.
Pressed onto heavyweight 180 gram vinyl with an etched B-Side. Housed in a heavy 350gsm card full color sleeve featuring the original theatrical release artwork.
The soundtrack is available on classic black vinyl, as well as "Eden Olive", which is 250 copies via Cold Spring only!
