Consign to Oblivion is the second studio album by Dutchsymphonic metal band Epica, and was released in 2005. The song "Trois Vierges" features a guest appearance by then Kamelot vocalist Roy Khan. The album's lyrics are inspired by the Maya civilization. The CD was released with copy control on it. This CD started a new collection of songs, called "A New Age Dawns". This saga is continued on the album Design Your Universe.
Stylistically, the album is more focused towards orchestration than other Epica releases and features heavy use of a chorus. Additionally, Mark Jansen's death growls appear less frequently, occurring on only three songs, "Force of the Shore", "Mother of Light" and "Consign to Oblivion". But a bonus track, the Death cover "Crystal Mountain" includes grunts, and a grunt version of "Quietus" was released on the "Quietus (Silent Reverie)" single, making it five songs with grunts. A single with an acoustic version of the song "Solitary Ground" was extracted from the album The Score – An Epic Journey, released the same year.
The bonus cover of "Crystal Mountain" is one of the very few Epica songs to not feature Simone Simons in any capacity, and the album is the band's only release to date where Simons' lyrical contributions outnumber those of Jansen.
