Teleport, a relatively young, four-piece progressive and blackened Thrash Metal act hailing from Ljubljana, Slovenia have released three demos and one EP during their existence, each bringing the band a step or two forward in terms of worldwide notoriety. The band's complex Thrash Metal is kind of hard to describe but try imagining Vektor combined with Emperor, some Dissection and even bits of Voivod. The later-era Emperor might be the first name people associate with Teleport. The band sounds nearly transcendental at times, conjuring up the kind of brilliant musical atmospheres the Norwegian Black Metal lords used to be masters of during their creative peak between IX Equilibrium and Prometheus. I would add the ingenious songwriting of Dissection when describing this musical crusade. There is nothing half-assed on Ascendance.

Thrash Metal with a twist and a big dose of talent and skill. Do yourself a favor and purchase this EP, you won't regret it.
