AS I LAY DYING are the undisputed kings of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal! Not only in their native USA, but also in Europe, the band has enjoyed a triumphant rise during the last five years. Top selling albums like the still hot “An Ocean Between Us”, sold-out headliner tours and celebrated festival appearances all over Europe (Wacken, Download, Bloodstock, With Full Force, Summer Breeze and many more) paved their way to the top, becoming a major influence for countless newcomers and establishing themselves as one of the most important metal bands of our time.

From the documentary taking up the whole of disc 1 to the full live experience on DVD 2 – filmed at Wacken Open Air 2008 and With Full Force 2007, among other places – to all of the group's music videos and tons of bonus features on disc 3, fans are invited to delve deep into the world of AS I LAY DYING, relive the first hours of their existance, enjoy concert highlights and understand who these guys are and what makes them tick.
Consistently with its amazing content, “This Is Who We Are” is packaged in a wonderful fold-out digipack plus booklet – true eye candy for the fans! With “This Is Who We Are” AS I LAY DYING take you into their own living room, to their rehearsal pad and all the way to the stage. Have fun!
