About this album

Opener and first single ‘Awaken’ bursts out of the speakers after an ambient introduction; serving as an excellent microcosm for what Uneven Structure are all about in the space of two minutes. By marrying beautiful, haunting ambience with jarring, down tuned riffs, the band have essentially taken the stereotypical djent sound and done it properly. Bands like Tesseract hint at the ambient side of he music, while there are a plethora of bands chugging away from the sake of it, but Uneven Structure are the first group to bring the two together an actually make it work. The perfect example of this is ‘Frost,’ which carries the listener through beautiful atmospheres, which are then completely replaced by a flurry of riffs and screams. On ‘Frost’ in particular, this works incredibly well, with the interchanging heavy guitars and lightly picked guitars making for one of the best songs to be released this year.

Where Februus really succeeds is the manner in which the production brings out the more ambient and fragile moments of the record, in effect making these moments the album’s centrepiece. Mention must be made to vocalist Mattheiu Romarin whose monumental screams perfectly juxtapose his equally outstanding clean vocals. One only has to look to tracks like ‘Hail’ and the aptly named ‘Finale’ for an example of this. Comparisons will be made to people like Mikael Akerfeldt in terms of sound; particularly with respect to his clean vocals.

    I'm a real sucker for atmosphere and all, but these half-the-album-filling interludes are really useless, unnecessary and simply annoying.

    The best way I could describe this album is it's simply a journey through space.

    This album is fantastic; standing out from all other Djent (and the related styles/sub-genres) I have heard, and actually catching my attention. I would much rather listen to "Februus" than Tesseract, Periphery, or even Meshuggah. As a few people have already pointed out, I quite enjoyed the atmosphere the album evoked as well.

    Absolutely phenomenal. (and that's a phrase I use sparingly) I feel as if I am at peace with myself floating in a dark blue ocean with sunlight illuminating the scene. [2] well said martyr :)
