Telepathy are a band from the United Kingdom that plays an instrumental and progressive mixture of sludge and post metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "!2 Areas" which was released by Devouter Records.
Sound effects and drones start off the album and after a minute heavy guitars find their way into the music and after the intro the music starts going for a more heavy and melodic sludge/post metal direction as well as throwing in a small amount of blast beats at times while the main focus is on slow and mid paced parts.
There are no vocals anywhere on the album with the music being all instrumental and the guitar leads that they use are in a melodic post rock direction and the guitar riffing uses a great amount of melody while also being very heavy all at the same time and as the album progresses the music starts adding soft and clean playing in certain sections of the recording which also adds a more progressive feeling to the bands musical sound and on some of the songs the bass guitars bring a very powerful sound to the recording.
Telepathy create a very slow and heavy sound that takes the heaviness of sludge and the melody of post metal which they also mix with progressive and indie rock to create a sound their own and they never use vocals and it leads to an instrumental atmosphere and the production sounds very professional.
In my opinion Telepathy are a very great sounding instrumental and progressive mixture of sludge and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Saccade" "Sleepwalker" and "To Kiss the Ocean's Floor". 8 out of 10.
