While the world awaits the new full length studio album from Consecration, which will blight the spring of 2022 with its rotten horrors, released from the clutches of Redefining Darkness Records, the band have dug deep into their crypt of dead songs and torn three mouldering corpses from their caskets. Three ancient tracks have had their bones broken and reassembled and new life breathed into their hollow chest cavities. They have been brought back from the dead…reimagined and reanimated!Consecration’s unholy elixir of decaying death metal and decomposing doom has grown darker and heavier over the years of their shadowy existence. Their earlier compositions have been transformed into terrifying, monstrous versions of their original incarnations and the band decided that the time had come for the results of that alchemical process to be captured and preserved for posterity. On one cold autumn night they entered their rehearsal studio and thundered through three prime examples of their new necromantic rituals, recording them raw and live, freezing their intimidating, overwhelming presence for eternity. ‘Cast Down For The Burning MMXXI’ and ‘Gut The Priest MMXXI’ are black abominations, warped children of tracks that appeared on the band’s 2010 debut EP, Gut The Priest while ‘Domain Of Despair’ grew from the diseased seeds of an incomplete 2011 demo, never made available before in any format. Together these haunted, hellish entities form a new EP, Reanimated, that reveals the new putrescent, perished heart of Consecration.

Reanimated will be released on November 19th by Cavernous Records, complete with stunning artwork from band vocalist and lyricist Daniel Bollans. It is a look back to the past through a lens of nightmares and a warning of what the future holds. For you dwellers in twilight and haunters of the burial grounds, this is an underground treasure to feed your ravenous souls.

CONSECRATION – FRAGILIUM
LABEL: SOLITUDE PRODUCTIONS
RELEASE DATE: JUNE 28th 2019

If you walk into the fenlands at sunset, leaving the last house at your back, you will follow a road that slowly dwindles to a footpath as the sky darkens and the shadows lengthen. With a cutting wind always in your face, bringing tears to your eyes, you’ll reach a place where the path finally peters out to nothing. There is no light but the stars and the horizon is as empty and distant as it was many cold miles ago. The only discernible features of this desolate landscape are the gnarled, stunted, wind sculpted trees that skulk like warped spiders, poised to attack when you turn your back. It’s a place with no name but loneliness, where all the sorrows in the world gather to cry their laments to the endless sky; and the sound of their song is the sound of Consecration…

Blending the decaying grandeur of epic doom, with the visceral power of primal death and the taste of memories so sharply poignant they draw blood and tears in equal measure, Consecration have summoned into being Fragilium – a towering album that stands like a pitch black monolith against the night sky, casting shadows so deep they swallow the darkness. The currents of aching melancholy that sweep through these songs are so deeply powerful that they threaten to consume the unwary listener. The guitar melodies sing like sirens to the lost while the obsidian riffs devastate all that stand in the path of their inexorable, measured progress. Mastered to perfection by Markus Stock of The Vision Bleakand Empyrium, whose deft touch has polished the twilight sounds of Ahab, Winterfylleth and Secrets Of The Moon, Fragilium walks paths of unprecedented musical and emotional depth. 

Respected guardians of doom, Solitude Productions, whose hallowed halls also provide shelter to the brooding mourners of HellLight, Ea and Doomed, will draw back the veil and reveal this masterpiece of misery on June 28th, bringing black clouds to the summer skies. While debut album Ephemerality and recent gargantuan compilation Remembrance offered glimpses of the potent power of Consecration, nothing could adequately prepare you for the soul crushing magic of Fragilium…the path to loneliness will soon be revealed to all who would walk its solitary way into the darkness…
