Snuff Lane loudly presents:
Telepathy // EARTHMASS // ZAUM [CAN]
The Louisiana, Bristol
Saturday 8th April
Doors: 19:00 (TBC) Tickets: Music Glue & Bristol Ticket Shop.
Expect a hench night of post-metal supremacy, with Colchester's finest Telepathy performing in support of their new forthcoming album. They'll be joined by Snuffy favourites Earthmass, and Canadian monolithic doomy mantra Zaum.
Furiously played progressive sludge, intricate soundscapes and a bucketload of riffs.
Rocksound magazine, Nov 2011 - "8/10 - With their "Fracture" E.P, Telepathy have created an impressively tight piece of instrumental progressive metal... A headbangers journey from start to finish.."
altsounds.com - "Telepathy is a metal band through and through, but they have the beauty and intelligentsia to rise above any run-of-the-mill, open-D chugging whiners that pervade the current scene"
"A four piece band from Essex, are one of those bands that are hard to describe. It could be easy just to say ‘progressive’ and run off, but there are elements of ambient, sludge, stoner, doom and psychedelia in the mix as well. I have seen Earthmass twice before, supporting Conan at the Hole in the Wall in October and then as headliners in May.
Seeing Earthmass live is an experience, it’s truly something that is best seen in person. I’ve experienced their live shows with metalcore fans who have come out demanding to experience the show again, causing them to delve deeper into the less core side of metal." - MetalRecusants – ‘ORMR’ review
ZAUM (Canda) https://zaum.bandcamp.com
A passage toward the dark realizations of ancient civilization; in the form of a monolithic doomy mantra based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven by sitar and synth textures. Based in New Brunswick – their live presence is very true to its recorded form featuring McDonald's both melodic and dark vocal styles met with elements of sectional Mongolian throat singing. Observers experience a calming process of reality whereby the astral and physical planes can co-exist and be understood from a natural perspective.
Their debut album Oracles released in June 2014 was reviewed nearly 100 times - subject to much critical acclaim primarily throughout Europe. In their 1.5 years as an active touring band ZAUM have amassed over 125 shows (mainly international) including support stints for Voivod this past August and Pentagram in November 2015.
