Consecration biography
CONSECRATION are a progressive metal band formed in 2000 in Belgrade, Serbia. The band has gone through numerous lineup changes over the past decade before settling into their current 4-piece lineup.

After recording two brief demos in 2001 and 2004, the band worked on and off on their debut album aux for six years while trying unsuccessfully to find a record label. In 2008 the band decided to release aux and a live album for free on the internet, where both were very well received in the underground metal community. They have since been signed to Geenger records and released their sophomore album .avi in May of 2010.

The band's style has evolved greatly over the course of their releases. Earlier releases delve heavily into the sludge/stoner metal genres with heavy use of psychedelics and atmosphere, influenced by bands like SLOWDIVE, NEUROSIS, and KATATONIA, whereas their current sound incorporates everything from OPETHian acoustics, KING CRIMSON-esque ambient experimentation, ISIS-like melodic post-rock sections and heavy riffing that invokes semblance of INTRONAUT or TOOL.

The band is known for their highly energetic live shows and have played shows with some bigger names in European post-metal like KNUT and THE OCEAN COLLECTIVE. Recommended for post-metal fans and metal fans that like heavy atmosphere in their music.

Consecration Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Bonnek
Special Collaborator Prog Metal Team

4 stars Consecration is a Serbian post-metal band that has been active since the early 2000s. '.avi' is their second albums and shows a band that has fully matured into a sound that is very much their own.

Post-Metal can be a bit generic, with formulaic quiet-low dynamics and predictable crescendo's. Consecration have forged something remarkably personal though. The core of the sound is sludge/stoner metal, similar to Pelican, but a lot of attention has gone into the atmospheric and psychedelic sound, one that recalls Pink Floyd as well as Slowdive. There are next to now growls or harsh vocals on the album, and contrary to many Post-metal bands they have some very good clean vocals that define the songs with epic melancholic vocal lines (sounding slightly like a more powerful version of Renske from Katatonia). Much of the album is instrumental, varying sludgy riffs with slow atmospheres and wide ringing arpeggio's. I must say I haven't found any dips or weaker spots in this diverse album.

Consecration's '.avi' is a very recommended album, fit for fans of doomy metal as well as lovers of post-rock, post-metal, space-rock or any other ambient rock style. You might like this even if you aren't into the leading post-metal bands, but approach with care if you like your music fast and hyper-active. Potentially 4.5 stars over time.

Consecration in the Temple of the Smoke
Consecration Experimental/Post Metal

Review by AstralliS

5 stars The story behind this live EP comes from two directions. How come? These two songs actually originated from a live session of two Belgrade bands. You guess right, Consecration and Temple of the Smoke. Coming from two different but still connected genres, members of Consecration at the time (Danilo Nikodinovski, Nemanja Trećaković and David Lazar Galić) joined forces with the Temple of the Smoke trio (Du?an ?ica, Dragan Mirković and Predrag Vranić) and in Belgrade's SKC Livingroom, on April 2nd 2008 recorded what we call here now Consecration in the Temple of the Smoke.

The second part occurred a month ago when I made a suggestion to the two bands to join forces. At the time I was unaware that they already had. Thus we discussed the possibility of a digital download release through Prog Sphere, which I was very happy to do. So we may say that Consecration in the Temple of the Smoke is the first official release from Prog Sphere Records. Before I get focused on the actual songs presented onto this EP, I would love to mention that the sleeves for this release were done at no cost by Mr. Påhl Sundström, graphic designer and guitarist of Swedish progressive rock band Klotet.

Consecration, a band whose roots lie in sludge/drone mixes up with Temple of the Smoke's kosmische rock, with the addition of ambient passages reached through Galić's saxwork and Trećaković's FX's. Doom beats from the beginning of the first track, helped by psychedelic guitar and saxophones develop this 6 ½ minutes piece into a real fuzzy jam, losing itself somewhere between psychedelic rock, doom and noise. At some point, the saxophone takes a bit of control over the other instruments.

Consecration in the Temple of the Smoke 2 opens with ambient sound walls in a post-rock manner, which keep on that way throughout the track, and those who know how Temple of the Smoke sounds can easily notice that space rock with kind of spiritual touches which lead to another space/psyche explosion in the second half of the song. Spooky saxwork, with frenzy and intense guitars, twisted synths and effects brings this 20 minutes long EP to an end.

There are plans to repeat such a performance later this year with a possible physical release, but we will see how things go. Enjoy!

Consecration Experimental/Post Metal

Review by AstralliS

5 stars Let's say this: You've checked out Consecration's latest album and came to ask me "What the hell is this band doing on a progressive rock webzine?!" In that case I guess I broke your image of progressive music, as this term is not simply based on super complex music or tons of tempo changes, but having a clear vision of the music you make, and Danilo Nikodinovski, the mainman of this Serbian band is a visionary of that kind, but then again, I can say with assurance that he's a regular dude playing "irregular" music. The biggest curse that can happen to a quality band that comes from Serbia or this region in general is probably that the band doesn't come from Sweden, Germany or the US. Why? Well, if there is only an ounce of justice in this world, Consecration would already be known worldwide, having the best possible support by labels, promoters, radio & TV stations, etc. It might sound to pretentious, but this band easily stands shoulder-to-shoulder with such acts like Cult of Luna, Goodspeed You! Black Emperor, Isis, God is an Astronaut, Mono, to name a few.

.avi is the second album of this Belgradian band and I can say fully objectively that .avi is one of the most innovative albums coming out of Serbian's sleepy music scene. This album has a history. That's right. It was previously recorded live and was released under the name Live 2nd April 2008, with the addition of a brief interlude on this studio record and of course with some musical and production improvements.

In comparison with their debut aux, .avi shows that Consecration has grown, matured and stepped forward. With Danilo's and the other members' wide influence spectrum, which goes from Pink Floyd to 65dayofstatic, this album can be marked as an essential gem from many reasons. While aux is mostly surrounded by melancholia and doom arrangements and fits well with the major bands of this type such are Katatonia, Anathema or Opeth, .avi makes a distinct change towards more a strong reflection of the type of music mentioned before.

Rare are the bands that can successfully transfer the energy of live playing to the studio, and Consecration has managed to do it very well. The reason for that is probably because .avi has been recording in a sequential manner, which makes it all the more complete. .avi is divided into 6 tracks, with a total duration of about 57 minutes. Aligator opens the album with strong riffing which increases as the song flows, and I have to say that those "picnic" guitar solos remind me somewhat of Metallica's from Load, which is good. The title track feels like it was dropped straight out of an Isis or Explosions in the Sky album, but no, it's in .avi. Danilo's singing sounds more like cosmic chanting, very nice atmospheric/post-rock guitar motifs of Nikola Milojević here and Nemanja Trećaković's FX's make you feel like you're floating through space and seeing all of the cosmos. Cisterna is a short interlude which delivers distorted bluesy standards and breaks into Somna, which is adorned with backing vocals of Milutin Jovančić, the singer of Block Out, one of the most influential Serbian bands. I should add that there's a video for this song, which was homemade, and this album comes with it. Up next is Idiot Glee, the heaviest song on the album. It includes death growls, strong riffing work and a greasy bass. Djavo nije urban, what could be translated as The Devil is Not Urban, sets Consecration's journey in the post-rock direction, similar to the one presented on Somna and the title track, with nice acoustic guitar chord voicing and the spilling samplework of Nemanja Trećaković. You will notice that I didn't write a single word about drums, so I will do that now because Matija Dagović excels in every segment of this record, from compassionate jazzy passages to really heavy stuff like blast beats.

And all of this for three measly euros. that's how much you will have to pay for this masterpiece, but it wouldn't hurt you to give some more money. Too bad it has not been released as a physical CD for collectors, but who knows, maybe that will change in the future.

In couple of years from now, this album is going to be referred as an album of cult status and time will be the best judge of that. Consecration has made .avi feel like a HD (High Definition) soundscape and that will probably stay remembered. And these dudes really make me feel proud. Listen and shiver!
