Instrumetallers Telepathy have some extremely exciting news regarding their second album, as yet untitled, due in the first half of 2016. The band have announced they will be entering the studio on January 11th, and have tapped none other than Jaime Gomez Arellano – who has worked with such luminaries as Paradise Lost, Ghost, Sunn O))), Altar of Plagues and Primordial – to bring his production skill to the record.
The news was revealed exclusively to Heavy Blog Is Heavy in an interview yesterday, where guitarist Rich Powley stated: “We are chomping at the bit to hear the songs come to life, and to work with such a great producer on this project is a privilege.”

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 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
