Exclusive: Stream CONSECRATION’s “Vertikala” Taken From The Upcoming Album “Univerzum Zna”


Serbian progressive power trio Consecration keep their progressive striving from album to album.

Formed in 2000, the band spent six years in making their debut aux, a release heavily influenced by early Katatonia/Anathema. With its successor .avi released in 2010, Belgraders explore new grounds moving away from doom to more sludge/post-rock oriented sound. But with this year’s Cimet (Serbian for cinnamon), the band brings a totally new set of sounds, flirting with different genres and exploring further beyond known.

As the result of the Cimet studio session, Consecration recorded material for another release what is to be the band’s next studio record called Univerzum Zna. The album was mixed by IsisAaron Harris, and mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Scorn, O.L.D., Lotus Eaters) who mastered Cimet too.

Asked about new album Consecration‘s mainman Danilo Nikodinovski says: “I think that people could expect mixed atmosphere of .avi and Cimet at least. Both of those records improved, improved Consecration. We’re really happy how Aaron did the production job, the mixing and everything. He really nailed it and more importantly, understood one hundred percent what Consecration is all about. We always wanted our songs to sound like this.

Univerzum Zna has more strength, heavier and sludgier riffs than .avi or Cimet… Yet it sounds tighter too. The atmosphere and ambient parts are more dense and the acoustic parts more beautiful. It’s like Brian Eno’s nightmare and David Lynch’s dream together.

Prog Sphere is proud to premiere Vertikala, almost nine minutes track off the upcoming album Univerzum Zna. hear it below.
