The Skinny: With little under a week to go until French progressive metal explorers Uneven Structure release their re-worked, re-recorded and re-packaged 8 EP, the band have released a full stream for fans to enjoy via Basick Records. Listen below!
8 has been reworked to add in the vocal prowess of Matthieu Romarin and is presented as one 24 minute long track, in eight movements. The record showcases their distinct soundscapes with fierce poly metric metal. Think Pink Floyd’s creativity meets Meshuggah’s brutality with a side serving of Devin Townsend’s progressive charm. The band recently released a haunting new video which perfectly showcases their sound and artistic ethos.
Comments guitarist Igor Omodei: “8, as a collective piece is something we love to play live but the way we do now is quite different from the 2009 EP. So we decided to release this altered version by going back to the drawing board, reworking it, taking advantage of the lineup consolidation and technical progress we’ve been through since the original was out. This is a thank you to our fans for being so supportive and believing in us, and we really hope they will enjoy what we’ve done with it. Whilst they enjoy this, we’re busy in our batcave, working on our second album. We want to get that exactly right as it’s a concept album, the technical aspect is more engaging than on Februus and we’re leaving more room for experimentation which means our writing spectrum is broad as hell.”
