This 22-track compilation traces the sonic development of Christian metalcore band As I Lay Dying. A LONG MARCH incorporates early tracks from the band's first year of existence, an EP recorded one year later in 2002, and new versions of tracks from that EP specifically rerecorded for this release. While the band sounds tougher, and has clearly benefited from the increased production values provided by its success, AILD were blistering and ferocious from day one, as evidenced by the equally searing original and revamped versions of tracks like "Illusions," "Forever," and "Reinvention."
While ostensibly a Christian band, the indecipherably throaty vocals combined with the band's dubious presence on the very un-sanctified Metal Blade label, make any concessions to faith or devotion somewhat irrelevant. AILD play brutal, exacting metal full of rage and passion that will appeal to metal heads of all stripes whether they're heading north or south come Judgment Day.
