Siderean "The Expansion"
We are very excited to share some news with you – the time has come for us to begin a new chapter. We have decided to depart from the TELEPORT constellation and continue our journey as Siderean. What began as petty legal threats by a former member turned out in the end to be an incentive for us to evolve and create with an even fiercer energy.
All the remaining members have been working hard for the last two years to bring you a new cosmic metal sound, and its release is approaching at the speed of light, in the form of a two-song demo of our upcoming album.
We would like to thank Stian Smørholm and the Edged Circle Productions label for all their limitless help and support in this situation, and of course to all of you for driving us on and inspiring us throughout all these years.

One of the most singular bands orbiting the death metal underground in the past decade, TELEPORT formed in 2010 in Ljubljana, Slovenia and promptly set course for a prodigious schedule of self-released demos, each one perfecting their slithering, shapeshifting sound. Undoubtedly inspired by Gorguts, Voivod, and Australia’s Stargazer and yet finding contemporaries in Blood Incantation and Sacriphyx, TELEPORT truly hit their stride with last year’s The Expansion. As aptly titled as the band’s moniker, The Expansion weaves a winding, oft-bewildering path across its three-track/21-minute runtime. Sulfurous to the very end, one could pin tags like “prog” or “tech” or simply “that’s crazy, man!” onto TELEPORT’s style of death metal, but within their attacking angularity exist actual hooks – malformed and mesmerizing, of course, but HOOKS to hold onto as you sink deeper into their maelstrom… And now, under the aegis of EDGED CIRCLE, that maelstrom will open wider and devour more listeners whole with TELEPORT’s imminent debut album for the label. In the meantime, prepare for The Expansion and get your mind blown!
We have closed down our Norwegian store and have relocated all stock to Leipzig Germany and New York. This means HEAVILY reduced shipping for all orders from ECP for the future. Bandcamp is still run from Norway.
Our stuff is distributed via Season of Mist/Soundworks, The Orchard and Border Music.
