Consecration are a band from the United Kingdom that plays funeral doom/death metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 compilation album "Remembrance" which consists of their 2014 full length, unreleased 2011 demo recordings, and their 2010 ep.
A very powerful sounding bass guitar starts off the compilation along with some drums being added into the music a few seconds later while the riffs also bring in a great amount of dark and depressive sounding melodies as well as the slower riffs being very heavily rooted in doom metal.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls while the screams also add in a touch of black metal along with some clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style, some of the tracks are instrumentals and a great portion of the songs are very long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard, the unreleased tracks show the music in more of a rawer form,
Consecration plays a style of doom/death metal that is very heavy and also captures the heaviness of funeral doom metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, despair, darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding collection from Consecration and if you are a fan of funeral doom/death metal, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Decayed Embrace" "Purity Through Pain" "Persecution Dominion" and "Cast Down For Burning". 8 out of 10.
