Surprises 2008: Consecration - Aux

Consecration , formed in Belgrade, Serbia & Montenegro in 2000, (formerly known as The Lack Of Motivation), plays prog/post-rock influenced doom metal. Bands like Anathema, Opeth, Katatonia are coming easily to mind when I was listening to Aux, even in some parts, the most experimental Phlebotomized or the prog70's King Crimson.
There were few albums of that doomish post-rock that I liked, lots of those bands try to copy other "great ones" like Kyuss or Tool (bands that I dont like too much), or make a metalized version of Radiohead, but somehow, I enjoyed with the first album of Consecration everytime I played it more and more, mostly those melancholic passages like Cliffhangers or Shelter Me.
They call themselves the "Def Leppard of Doom Metal".
