Ascension – Consolamentum

Featuring members of Katharsis, Ascension have reared their heads with this belated release through W.T.C. Productions, Consolamentum represents a five chapter concept album dealing with spiritual journeys and transformation of the human soul through salvation. Listen to this sample – Ascension are the ruling elite transposing Black Metal, transgressing thin orthodoxy and representing the genre as nothing more or less than its complete essence. Long, epic songs weave mammoth riffs against pinpoint dissonance. Truly contender for album of the year, so late on, past all these naive year end lists! Perfect. Available in CD or LP now.

Consolamentum Sample:
Consolamentum (sample)

I don’t want to beat about the bush; as a matter of fact this album became everything that one could have hoped for, a complex, profound and thoroughly sinister masterpiece. The Vinyl version of „Consolamentum“ comes in a Gatefold cover, including a LP sized 12 pages booklet & heavy vinyl (first 111 copies come with red vinyl, the remaining copies with white vinyl).


You'll find me in the vast wilderness of British Columbia, talking metal at LURKER, or working in publishing and front-end web/eBook development.

    Good sample, great cover.
    Just wondering though, is the sample made of multiple songs?
    It sounds very disjointed.

    I think the music is intended to appear disjointed and chaotic.

    To truly find out though, I guess you’ll have to purchase the album!

    I hate to say it because it’s really good but it does sound like a more jacked up Bathory.Ill be buying it still.
