At the time of writing, self-styled 'instru-metal' titans Telepathy are on a warpath. Having returned home from a torrent of successful shows in support of their second album ‘Tempest’, patrons of the ever growing metal scene across Europe and the UK (the island that the band calls home) bore witness to the vicious aural storm for which Telepathy are rapidly becoming renowned.
Consisting of two Polish brothers - guitarist Piotr Turek and drummer Albert Turek - and two Englishmen - guitarist Richard Powley and bassist Teddy-James Driscoll (who replaced original bassist Krystian Turek) - Telepathy's sound, seldom disassociated with the words 'post-metal', is often likened to genre megastars Cult of Luna, Russian Circles and Neurosis. Yet, in a manner befitting the transcendental nature of the practice itself, Telepathy's music surpasses the archetypal sensory confinements that ensnare bands of a similar ilk. Indeed, since their formation under the 3 swords of Essex in 2011, Telepathy has truly set about forging their own sonic path, on their own terms, without compromise.
