Telepathy - Echo of Souls

TELEPATHY the instrumental titans from Colchester, UK.

TELEPATHY released their second album "Tempest" earlier this year. The album is an interesting instrumental journey true the musical landscape that TELEPATHY serves on a silver plate. The music is progressive and sludgy post-metal.

The album was recorded, mixed and mastered at London’s Orgone Studios by lauded producer /engineer Jaime Gomez Arellano (GHOST, OPETH, PARADISE LOST, ALTAR OF PLAGUES, CATHEDRAL), "Tempest follows in the footsteps of TELEPATHYs critically acclaimed 2014 debut "12 Areas" and is very much a concept record. "Tempest" depicts the harrowing journey of a person beset with grief and faced with total isolation after awaking from a great flood. The album guides the listener on a journey through awakening, desolation and finally acceptance.

Further showcasing the band’s no-holds-barred approach to songwriting, "Tempest" fuses elements of post-metal, sludge, doom and black metal with unorthodox and complex song structures, creating a cohesive and cathartic tapestry of unique instrumental metal. The inclusion of tortured vocals on the album’s centerpiece, today's tune "Echo of Souls", shows a band un afraid to travel into uncharted waters, further cementing their reputation as a forward thinking and unique group in today’s experimental metal scene. Where its predecessor "12 Areas" was by intention a chaotic and furious exploration of sound, "Tempest" marks a shift towards a more balanced and open sonic pallette. More dynamic, spacious and refined than before, but with an added emphasis on sonic weight, unbridled heaviness, melody and emotional depth.

TELEPATHY spent the majority of 2016 stunning audiences up and down the UK with their immersive and intense live show, building upon their ever growing following. Highlights included appearances alongside fellow UK metal veterans RAGING SPEEDHORN, OATHBREAKER, American post-metal pioneers and labelmates ROSETTA and most notably an appearance at the prestigious Desertfest in London.

"Tempest" marks a brand new chapter in the band’s career, and with its definitive line-up in place — owing to the addition of new bass player Teddy-James Driscoll — "Tempest" showcases a ruthlessly punishing, heavy and emotionally demanding take on instrumental music.

The 2×LP comes with an etching on side D, download code and on 180 gr vinyl.

350g/m² gatefold cover, 180 gram vinyl, download code, etching on side D PRESSING INFO: 500 copies 400 black 100 white & grey (Side A/ Side B)

Biblical - Mature Themes

BIBLICAL, a bunch of roaring rockers from Toronto, Canada.

A band that was formed during the spring of 2010, BIBLICAL is the roar of mountains splitting and oceans parting. The band’s fierce live show has earned it festival and touring slots with top artists such as EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979, KYUSS, RED FANG, TORCHE and EYEHATEGOD.

                                                       Since charges are pending, legal council for all parties decided                                                        to remove images of the alleged assault from their coverage.

Mr. Swayze could not be reached for comment.

In 2011 BIBLICAL released a self-titled EP that delighted rock fans with a blast of tense garage metal, steeped in minor-key twang. POP MATTERS called the release “a grand debut,” while stoner aficionados THE OBELISK praised the band’s sound, noting “BIBLICAL‘s swagger is definitely their own.”

In 2014, the group embarked on a 5-week North American tour with DFA1979 in support of their debut full-length "Monsoon Season". A interesting album indeed, got one of the old singles in draft mode, half written but never published, why...who knows, soon, well hopefully. Lauded by PITCHFORK as a “climactic, Red Sea-parting surge of narcotic guitar noise,” "Monsoon Season" earned critical acclaim from both metal and indie outlets alike. METAL SUCKS pegged the album as “an early contender for year-end-list honors,” while KEXP SEATTLE praised the band as “apocalyptic rock and roll, worthy of the lasting canon.”

September 2017 was the month when BIBLICAL released thier sophomore full-length "The City That Always Sleeps". The product of almost 2 years in the studio, the album is a deep dive into sludgy psych rock that explores spaces, textures and tones beyond the outer limits. Heavy, propulsive and totally hypnotic, "The City That Always Sleeps" is BIBLICAL at its weapons-grade best, leveraging rhythm and dynamics to explosive effect. The album was released September 15th, 2017

And like an old superstition or a venerable jazz standard, familiar constituents bubble up to the surface: something old, something new, something borrowed—and perhaps most important—something blue.

Cool Vinyl Version of "The City That Always Sleeps"

Today's tune "Mature Themes" is the first single from the brand new album "The City That Always Sleeps". Based on the 1997 film 'Go' by Jacob Blackstock. Edited by Nick Sewell. Additional footage courtesy of the Prelinger Archives. Enjoy!

With the Dead - Isolation

Supergroup is such an erroneous term – images of bored playboys pissing on their legacy spring to mind – but the members of WITH THE DEAD have a history of creating criminally good records as long as your arm. They’ve all served hard time in the subterranean worlds of Doom and the heaviest forms of Metal and have now reconvened to surpass previous projects. They’re back – and this time the aim is to maim.

WITH THE DEAD were formed by the founding rhythm section of occultist Doom overloads ELECTRIC WIZARD: guitarist/bassist Tim Bagshaw (also a current member of SERPENTINE PATH) and drummer Mark Greening, a pair once notorious for the sheer brute heaviness of their bowel-shaking sound and early extra-curricular activities that involved excess, injury and low-level criminality (arrests for the theft of a crucifix from a church roof and drunkenly robbing an off-licence to name but two).

Due to various reasons, Greening was dismissed from the group shortly after the album was released. His replacement is former BOLT THROWER skin batterer, Alex Thomes. Joining him is full-time bassist, Leo Smee, formerly of British Doom pioneers CATHEDRAL. Having performed both bass and guitar duties on the album, Bagshaw will now concentrate solely on six-string savagery. Completing the circle is frontman Lee Dorrian, co-founder of CATHEDRAL, former frontman with grindcore legends NAPALM DEATH and owner of Rise Above Records, the UK’s finest independent purveyors of all sounds heavy and underground, whose stable of bands include GHOST, UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS, LUCIFER, BLOOD CEREMONY and WITCHCRAFT. Having been in business since 1988, Rise Above is also one of the most enduring.

So get ready for some apocalyptic, chasm, skull-crushing Doom Metal. Prepare to die.

Today's tune "Isolation" is taken from the forthcoming album, "Love From With the Dead", released worldwide September 22nd 2017. The Video is directed by Marc Morris.

Transport League - Twist & Shout at the Devil

Monday, new week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"Twist & Shout at the Devil" is the latest and seventh album from the Swedish boogie rockers TRANSPORT LEAGUE.

The band, which was formed in 1994 and with now with the seventh release "Twist & Shout at the Devil" they have created an album that shows that the band has grown, a bit beardy and grey haired than usual 😏

The songs feels very elaborate and well-crafted. The album is like an riffy roadtrip with an heavy impact! It got some strong influences from DANZIG and CLUTCH. Like the two predecessors, "Twist & Shout at the Devil" is a collection of tunes with high peaks and less compelling transportation stretches in between. The three longstanding band members Tony Jelencovich, Peter Hunyadi (guitar) and Mattias Starander (drums) recorded the album together with the new bassist Dennis Österdal who has joined the fold to replace Lars Häglund, the latter having had to leave the group due to health problems.

"Twist & Shout at the Devil" with the ambiguous album title which hints at both the BEATLES ("Twist And Shout") and MÖTLEY CRÜE ("Shout At The Devil"). The album opener "Destroy Rock City", with its KISS references ("Detroit Rock City") in terms of its name and its startup riff until it forms to their own creation. There is another tune where the reference is made, "Bad Voltage" which brings to mind LED ZEPPELIN and AC/DC, Marshall amps and Gibson guitars – all of them synonymous with timeless rock´n`roll. The heavy punching "Power To The Sloth", screaming vocals and cool and heavy riffs. "Cannibal Holobeast" is a really cool piece where he screams "This is my sabotage", the tune is also supported by a video clip. "Swine To Shine" is a more lade-back tune, I get a little FOO FIGHTERS feeling in the vocal part until he burst out something else, cool tune. "One Last Way", heavy melodic riffing with almost rapping vocals and screaming angry parts in a very melodic way, could have been a tune from SYSTEM OF A DOWN, I really like this one. "Zulu Zombie Zodiac" is a fast tune, a modern groovy monster to the stand out tune "Dead And Awaken", were spoken word is the main thing along with ruffy and screamo vocals takes it's part along with heavy riffs and marching drums. "Werewolves In The Sink" is a killing duet with Jocke Berg from HARDCORE SUPERSTAR. "Thousand Eyes & One" is a heavy piece where modern FOO FIGHTERS flickers in the chorus, great tune indeed! "Gravestation" flirts with ZAPPA and WHITE ZOMBIE. The album ends with "Winter War", a riffy and ruffy tune and I see myself click on the repeat button. I guess I need to add a Vinyl for order soon!

Roberto Laghi(IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE, MUSTASCH) is behind the mix of the album. The impressive cover artwork was designed by Axel Widén and presents creatures (werewolf, pig, sloth) from the album’s lyrics – a real eye-catcher which pleasantly sets itself apart from the usual metal standards.

Sum: Hell yeah, you need this!

Today's tune "Cannibal Holobeast" is taken from the "Record Of The Week", enjoy! Lyrics by Tony Jelencovich. Video directed by Joel Nilsson at Maluha Media
