Dead in My Arms is the debut album by American deathcore band Carnifex. It was released on July 12, 2007 through This City Is Burning Records.


Carnifex were briefly signed to This City Is Burning in 2007, during so the group wrote and recorded Dead in My Arms during the proceeding months. Upon the album's release in June 2007, it managed to sell over 5,000 copies in its first week despite very limited publicity.[4] After its release, the sales of the album more than doubled amongst the summer of that year. "Collaborating Like Killers", "Love Lies in Ashes" "Slit Wrist Savior" and "Hope Dies with the Decadent" were re-recorded tracks that had previously been included on the band's first EP, Love Lies in Ashes.[citation needed]

The original distributed versions of the album sold on iTunes and copies at the band's concerts had the song "These Thoughts Become Cages" missing due to a marketing idea from This City Is Burning Records who placed the song only on the store bought versions of the album.[citation needed]

The same version that includes the "These Thoughts Become Cages" track, also features enhanced content on the disc and includes the controversial music video for "Lie to My Face" along with other extras.[5]
