Beneath the Encasing of Ashes is the debut album by American metalcore band As I Lay Dying. Many reviewers[1][2] and also casual listeners[3] compared the overall sound of this album to Zao. It is widely thought that the band found its own sound on later albums, Frail Words Collapse and Shadows Are Security. All the songs on Beneath the Encasing of Ashes appear on the compilation album A Long March: The First Recordings.


The closing track, "Behind Me Lies Another Fallen Soldier" was re-recorded for the band's second album, Frail Words Collapse. They also re-recorded a medley, which includes parts from several songs from the album, which was included on Decas.
