There’s nothing quite like a faceful of riffs, and live it’s even better. Instrumental prog-sludge metallers Telepathy have shows to announce, taking them up and down England, including a date with Raging Speedhorn starting a cold November weekender with Midlands-based blackened doomsters Conjurer.
The band have barely stopped touring following their headline European dates and stunning performance at Incubate, including shows with Sloath, Year Of No Light, Oathbreaker and Coilguns under their belt. New bassist Teddy James Driscoll has slotted in perfectly, and the band are steamrollering onwards at a rate of knots.
Telepathy’s music is a complex mix, at times post-metal, other times mathy and chaotic, and always sludge-powered. Their records have drawn praise from all quarters, especially last year’s 12 Areas (out on Devouter & Tartarus Records), which caught glowing reviews from Rock Sound, Heavy Blog Is Heavy, MetalRecusants and The Sludgelord among many others.
There’s nothing left to say except, to quote the old road dog Henry Rollins, get in the van!
The dates are as as follows:
Oct 16th – The White Horse, Sudbury w/ Old Man Lizard, Wren & Bracken
Nov 28th – Bleach, Brighton w/Conjurer & Latitudes
RIYL: The Ocean, early Mastodon & Baroness, Converge, Russian Circles
Praise for Telepathy:
“Since forming in 2011, Telepathy have been causing quite a stir with their poignant fusion of atmospheric, sludgy tones with progressive song structures and, of course, stonking great riffs.” – Terrorizer
“12 Areas then is a unique beast in the instrumental landscape of 2014: it serves as a whole, a complete journey that takes the listener through various shades of blue. It tackles the challenges of instrumental music, to be interesting and unique but not scattered, with an original approach.” Heavy Blog is Heavy
“A headbanger’s journey from start to finish.” – Rock Sound Magazine
“A unified album distinctly robed in sludge, but with a sound that sounds fresh and present. This is sludge for 2014.” – The Sleeping Shaman
