It began in 2010...a dark night in the east of England, a meeting of darker minds. A group of men drawn together by a shared desire to make music that would take them beyond the threshold of their collective black imaginations; a need to spin their bleakest dreams into threads of sound so heavy they would crush the soul...

On that night Consecration were born, the first steps of their journey into the shadow lands taken. The musical talents of the five members blended swiftly into a dark elixir of sound and within four months they were ready to enter Tides Reach Studio to record their first EP. Gut The Priest instantly made its mark, finding recognition at Zero Tolerance Magazine and MetalRules.com, while Doomantia revelled in the ‘sinister riffing’ and ‘gloomy atmosphere’. Consecration’s insidious presence began to spread and prestigious support slots followed, with the band travelling to London to

Formed back in 2010, this is the second full-length album from the Norwich-based band, following on from 2014’s ‘Ephemerality’. While doom is obviously at the heart of what there are undertaking, there are also plenty of elements of death and black metal in the overall sound, which makes for a very interesting mix indeed. The opening number, “In Darkened Slumber”, is the shortest on the album at just 7 ½ minutes long and sets an incredibly delicate atmosphere. The band change their style thereafter and become more straight doom, but they never really lose that overarching impression of something that is more than just the musical notes. There is a strength within the fragility, a sense of the ominous, of something quite dark which is hidden behind the curtain waiting to attack.

The production is simply superb, with real, clarity, which is what is required when a song commences just with delicate cymbals, a bass not being plucked and a snare being hit just once in a bar. They slow their doom right down at times, and are always in total control so that the listener is being drawn in. The only way to really appreciate this album is by playing it on good headphones, as there is the risk hat some of the nuances will be lost among ambient sound. But don’t think this is anything but a very heavy album indeed, as there are plenty of dark elements to counteract the light, as here is a band who know exactly what power they have at their disposal yet never really let loose the hounds. Overall this is an incredibly impressive atmospheric doom album which is well worth investigating.
