Here we have a decent-length slab of post-metal with stoner and doom elements chucked in for good measure. At just under 30 minutes in duration, it fills a hole that you may not have realised needed filling.
The release is instrumental, which allows the listener to focus on the various moods, feelings, and emotive nuances that are contained in these five songs.
There’s a wealth of enjoyable content spread out across this album. I like the band’s use of light and shade, creating heaviness that’s offset by the requisite amount of softer and introspective moments.
These tracks are quite immersive and engaging. They take you on a journey, steering you through the cavernous riffs and guiding you across the seas of distorted feeling. The band clearly have a talent for this kind of thing, and Télépathie is a very accomplished and enjoyable collection of songs.
I’d say this is a mix of Isis and early Pelican, with maybe a dash of Karma to Burn and Russian Circles here and there. Fans of these bands will probably find a lot to like on Télépathie, and I heartily recommend this very pleasing band.
