Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars US project TELERGY is the creative vehicle of composer and musician Robert McClung, and from 2011 and onward he has crafted and released a succession of thematic albums incorporating the idioms of progressive rock and progressive metal while at the same time highlighting historical periods or persons he feels should be better known. The fourth Telergy album "Black Swallow" was released earlier this year, where the story told is of the aviation pioneer and war hero Eugene Bullard.

Fans of instrumental progressive metal will find themselves a real treat of an album with Telergy's latest effort "Black Swallow". While I have my thoughts on why the subject matter of this album is explored at this point in time, and those are positive thoughts too I should add, I'll leave that part of it for others to conclude for themselves. Musically this is a solid venture from start to finish though; creative, expressive and not adhering all that much to genre conventions. A certain fondness for dramatic orchestral overlays and brass elements will be needed to be able to enjoy this album, but other than that this is a CD I find easy to recommend to just about anyone that tends to enjoy instrumental progressive metal. From my point of view at least this is the most solid album by Telergy to date.
