Consecration - Remembrance

Beneath the endless, foreboding skies of East Anglia, the region of England most steeped in tales of witchcraft and witch burnings, where the dark, empty fens stretch out to become the labyrinthine reed beds and marshes and eventually the cold North Sea comes a sound of desolate doom, aching emptiness, nightmare and shadows…

For the past eight years Consecration have been casting their eldritch spells, weaving words of forgotten wisdom and incantations of black imaginings through riffs of rot and decay, entwining oppressive atmosphere with beguiling melodies, encasing songs of sorrow in caskets of terror and bleak horror. From the malicious spite of their debut EP, Gut The Priest to the overwhelming sonic landscape of fear and shadows that is summoned up by their full length album Ephemerality, released through UKEM in the heart of winter 2014, this unique band have been building a formidable canon of work, a horde of gold and gems that has lain glittering in the caverns of the underground, treasured by the intrepid souls that have braved the descent into darkness to discover it.

As Consecration began to venture forth from their home territory, playing shows across the UK with the likes of Leafhound, Esoteric and Primitive Man, so the media began to take notice of their intoxicating blend of mournful magic and hellish visions from beyond the walls of sleep. Zero Tolerance Magazine, Metal Rules, Doomantia and more were captured by their insidious conjurations. The sound of Consecration could no longer remain hidden beneath the dank soil…

An alliance formed with Imperative PR, Consecration have decided to open the black covers of their grimoire, to invite one and all to taste the darkness of not only Gut The Priest and Ephemerality, but an array of secrets that have lain too long in the deep places. Here, under the title of Remembrance, you will find the first eight years of Consecration in their entirety, a digital compendium of their cursed litanies and lore - all fully remastered and restored to breathe a new life into the darkness. These are the hymns of heartbreak upon which a monolith will be built. These are the spirit-crushing sounds that will form the foundations of a legacy of mourning, an empire of tears. Beware, the future is bleak indeed…
