Cold Spring Records are proud to announce the official release of the soundtrack to Lars Von Trier’s controversial film Antichrist, available on a physical format for the first time.
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 audiences. A grieving couple retreat to their cabin in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage, but nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse. Nature is Satan’s church.
“When nature turns evil, true terror awaits.”
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.
Antichrist is pressed onto heavyweight 180 gram vinyl with an etched b-side in either standard black or ‘Eden Olive’ coloured. The 12″ vinyl is also housed in a heavy 350gsm card full-colour sleeve featuring the original theatrical release artwork.
