This CD edition of Nadja's 2005 Bodycage album marks the first in a quartet of reissued Nadja albums that have gone out of print or have otherwise limited availability. These re-releases feature unique letter-pressed packaging, custom-designed by the band themselves. Bodycage, the band's second proper album after their debut Truth Becomes Death, was initially released on Belgium's Nothingness Records in two small editions (111 copies and 66 copies), both of which rapidly sold out. The album was then picked up by Profound Lore Records for a CD reissue, followed by a deluxe vinyl edition on Equation Records. Both the CD and LP versions are now out of print. Bodycage is a concept album, its lyrical themes revolving around a rare congenital disorder called Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva, a disease in which the body produces an extra skeleton that immobilizes the joints of the body. "Bodycage drips pure emotion... Nadja's unabashed love of atonal classical music beams (albeit dully) throughout, stressing lack-of-form over function, making something normally scary into something wholly frightening." --Kory Grow, Decibel "This is epic ultradoom metal, but with the metal replaced by soft billowy clouds of fuzzy distortion, the howling fury twisted into dreamlike tranquility, the blasting beats pulled apart and sprinkled here and there like percussive raindrops. This is as soft and pretty as a dirge-y drone can get while still retaining its inherent doomic mass. Utter and absolute loveliness drenched in a thick patina of crushing heaviness. Impossible but perfect." --Aquarius Records
