Telepathy are a band from Poland that plays an instrumental mixture of post black, sludge and epic doom metal and this is a review of their 2020 album which will be released on March 27th by Svart Records.
Field recordings and atmospheric soundscapes start off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later before going into more of a melodic direction. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them while a great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Elements of post black metal are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. All of the slower riffs are also heavily rooted in sludge and doom metal and the guitar leads are also done in a very melodic style.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as all of the tracks also sticking mostly to an instrumental direction, one track also introduces clean playing onto the recording and at times the music also adds in a touch of shoegaze, As the album progresses a brief use of clean singing and aggressive vocals can also be heard on a couple of tracks, stringed instruments are also added on the closing track and the production also sounds very professional.
In my opinion Telepath are a very great sounding mixture of post black, sludge and epic doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eternal Silence" "Pariah" and "Sorrow Surrenders Its Crown". 8 out of 10.
