Consolation is the name of a former Dutch death metal/grindcore band from the Zaanstreek that formed in 1989. They released three full-length albums through Displeased Records and were called the Dutch "Gods of Grind"; at their peak, in the late 1990s, they were one of the highest rated metal bands in the Netherlands, according to Dutch metal magazine Aardschok. The band split up in 1999. They more or less restarted in 2002 as Cardinal, playing shows as late as 2005. A real comeback under their old name came in late 2008, when they announced reunion shows at the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009.

We must refocus on technical education, restore our respect for the dignity of work and celebrate technical jobs not as the consolation prize of our society, but as what they really are -- a national calling essential to our ongoing prosperity.
The greatest consolation in life is to say what one thinks.
There is no point in asking the incarnated on their choice between existence and non-existence. Their answer will not be coming from the Truth, but from the accepted order of things. And the answer is always yes. For in prison and captivity such is the only response. There is no reason in asking the non-being, because the answer is always no. The truth lies in the view from a different perspective. And the truth is that the birth is repellent. It is the concentration of violence, hopelessness, suffering, and fatality. - Book of Consolation, 10.1-3
