A stoner/sludge metal and post metal band from the capital of Serbia defines their music as atmospheric rock with emphasis on constant evolution and redefinition on their own sound and expression. They are called Consecration and their vast experience in music includes five albums, from which the last one, Grob, represents the end of a trilogy (together with Cimet and Univerzum zna). 

Belgrade band Consecration decided to share their music with the world at the beginning of a new century, in 2000 to be more precise. Over the years, these makers of atmospheric music became a trio, and they defined their expression with fantastic sound, creating eclectic landscapes using hard and pervade dynamics that pervade the whole body of the listener. The band memebers are Danilo Nikodinovski (vocal, guitar), Matija Dagović (drums) i Ivan Aranđelović (bass). 

They worked on their first album for six years and they released it under the name Aux. Different influences can already be noticed on this album, the ones from Neurosis and Opeth, as well as the ones from Pink Floyd and The Cure. Second album, .avi, also has a distinctive feature. It was recorded in just one take because they tried to convey the atmosphere from a live gig (for which they...  more

Geenger Records is an independent record label based in Zagreb (Croatia), and is a part of Citizens’ Association for Culture (GOKUL) from Zabok. The label was established in 2009 by experienced music enthusiasts and scene participants, some of which were also the founding members of Moonlee Records, a notable indie label based both in Croatia and Slovenia.

From the very beginnings of our work, we think of music publishing as the basic and most direct way to stimulate musical creativity in young artists, so we decided to promote good music which is, unfortunately, still unevenly represented in (or generally ignored by) Croatian mediasphere. The label is, regardless of all genre and regional constraints, in a constant search for bands which, given the quality of their music and the ideas they promote, differ from the average selection on the scene. We constantly collaborate with bands and individuals who actively participate in shaping of social climate, either by supporting various NGOs, or other social organizations with whose objectives they identify.

The musicians we work with are often present in all relevant music festivals throughout Croatia and region - InMusic, Terraneo and EXIT usually being recognized as the most famous ones. Thanks to the experience, dedicated work and cooperation with many domestic and foreign publishing agencies, promoters and clubs, Geenger Records eventually became a sort of starting point for some of the best young Croatian bands.

In Croatia, besides Geenger Records, our sister label Moonlee Records and a handful of individuals, such initiatives are basically still nonexistent, so we can safely say that we are, at the moment, one of the very few record labels / marketing agencies that are narrowly specialized in working with lesser known artists. We see our role in creating better conditions for young bands, so they may reach concert promotion, media coverage and wider audience more easily. By doing so, we help them achieve their full creative potential, while maintaining complete control over their autorship and every other aspect of their work.

Besides bringing together the most prominent names in Croatian alternative music, Geenger Records also collaborates with experienced designers who closely look after the presentation of the label, releases and promotional materials, thus maintaining high quality and uniform visual standard, with the aim of making Geenger Records a recognizable and credible name.

Geenger Records is, and will always remain, a brainchild of true music lovers who are dedicating their good will and spare time to help promote all those hard-working artists which deserve wider recognition.
