Unconsecrated is the debut studio album by Australian death metal band The Red Shore, released on 8 November 2008.[1] It was originally set for a 22 September release through Siege of Amida Records, but was delayed. A limited edition was released as a CD/DVD package containing a documentary and live performance.[1][2]

Background information[edit]

In an interview with Australian underground magazine Death Before Dishonour, Jamie Hope revealed that at the time of lead singer Damien Morris' death the band was working on their debut album, as a result the album will feature three tracks with Damien on vocals and the rest with Jamie Hope. He also revealed that the album will feature a slew of guest vocals from Brandan Schieppati of Bleeding Through, Hernan Hermida of All Shall Perish, Karl Schubach of Misery Signals and Dan Weyandt of Zao.[3]

In the same interview, Hope also revealed Damien Morris' concept for the album: "...an epic tale of the forces of heaven and hell battling for the supremacy on the battleground of planet earth".[3]

During I Killed The Prom Queen's 2008 "Say Goodbye" tour, a track titled "The Forefront of Failure" was circulated through promotional CDs distributed by Stomp.[citation needed]
