Consumed by Your Poison is the debut album by the Canadian deathcore band Despised Icon. It was released on October 2, 2002 through Galy Records and re-released on April 4, 2006.

Critical reception[edit]

Consumed by Your Poison generally received positive reviews, Greg Pratt of Exclaim! magazine wrote mainly praising the vocals work, stating that both Marie-Hélène Landry and Steve Marois "provide a multitude of sounds not usually heard in the realm of oppressive cookie monster vocals." Overall, Pratt exalt the band's musicianship, saying: "brutal, well played and technically adept, this sounds great, looks great."[1]


Consumed by Your Poison was re-released on April 4, 2006 through Century Media Records. It has been remixed by the band's former guitarist Yannick St-Amand—vocalist Alex Erian commented about, saying that "the result [of the new mix] sounds way heavier than the original version"; the album comes with newly recorded bonus tracks of the first two tracks on the disc and features all new artwork and layout designed by Sven de Caluwé from Aborted.[2]
