Fracture EP by Telepathy (2011)

Kind of Like: Russian Circles, Red Sparowes, Pelican
Genres: Metal, Post-rock, Ambient
Preview: Bandcamp

"Telepathy formed in the summer of 2010, aiming to create a fresh and interesting take on modern heavy music. Combining elements such as complex time signatures, ambience, dynamic textures, post rock guitars and unrelenting heaviness to create a fresh and exciting sound."

I wouldn't necessarily say this is a very fresh new sound; there are many bands that go for this sound.  Just take a look at the "Kind of Like" part, and there are a bunch more that fall into the whole "post-metal" genre.  That being said, I really dig this EP a lot.  It reminds me of Russian Circles before they started to drift away from what they did on Enter, which is still an amazing album.  I really hope they keep going in this direction in future efforts.
