YEAR OF NO LIGHT

 More from this Band



YEAR OF NO LIGHT`s lengthy, sprawling compositions of towering walls
of guitars and sombre synths irradiate a sense of dire solemnity and
spiritual gravity, and couldn't be a more fitting soundtrack for such grim
medieval scenarios. But there is also the element of absolution,
regeneration, elevation, transcendence in the face of death.
Consolamentum is dense, rich and lush and yet somehow feels starved
and deprived. With debut album Nord (2006) and sophomore release
Ausserwelt (2010), the band made themselves a name in the European
avant-metal scene. Extensive tours of Europe, North America and Russia
in 2013 and 2014, including two appearances at Roadburn festival,
Hellfest and a spectacular performance in a 17th Century fortress in the
Carpathian mountains introduced them to a broader and quickly growing
international audience. The cinematic scope of their music implies that
YEAR OF NO LIGHT are a group of artists that pay a great deal of
attention to their visual representation, from the classy album artworks
and merch designs to the carefully designed lighting design of their live
show. With their seminal 3rd album Tocsin, released in 2013, YEAR OF
NO LIGHT reached the peak of their career thus far - a logical decision
that Consolamentum was made with the same team again: recorded and
mixed by Cyrille Gachet at Cryogene in Begles / Bordeaux, mastered by
Alan Douches at West West Side. "We wanted this album to sound as
organic and analog as possible", comments the band. "All tracks were
recorded live. The goal was to have the most natural, warm and clean
takes possible, to give volume to the dynamics of the songs. We aimed
to have a production with a singular personality." Consolamentum is
huge, poignant, frightening, sublime, smothering and cathartic - and,
much like its predecessor, "audacious, memorable and supremely
confident." (Decibel magazine).
