180g Black Vinyl with Etched B-Side. Full colour sleeve – Cold Spring are proud to announce the first ever physical release of the soundtrack to Lars Von Trier’s controversial film ‘Antichrist’. 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 colour sleeve featuring the original theatrical release artwork.

“Antichrist delivers enough beauty, terror and wonder to qualify as the strangest and most original horror movie of the year” (Empire Magazine, 4/5)
“The film is equivalent to witnessing a wild fight between strangers. It pulls you this way and that and convinces you of different versions of the truth… what we witness feels most like a piercing primal scream from within von Trier” (Time Out, 4/5)
“Antichrist has the power to haunt beyond words… it is exactly the movie von Trier wanted to make and a piece of staggeringly pure cinema” (Boston Globe, 4.5/5)
