Forward thinking French progressive metallers Uneven Structure release their debut album Februus via Basick Records. This is a thirteen piece concept album spanning across two discs, mixing lush soundscapes with fierce polymetric Metal. Think Pink Floyd's creativity meets Meshuggah's brutality with a side serving of Devin Townsend's progressive charm.

After a few spins I'm happy to say the 'gamble' paid off as this is a great album which combines technically brilliant guitar work with exciting vocals - heavy to clean and somehow always harmonious - to create a vast and beautiful music journey (whilst not forgetting the other contributions of course: drums, bass..).
If you're looking for music which is as enjoyable as it is successful at building imagery in your mind while listening then, voila!
Februus has been accused of sounding too much like Tesseract and I do hear what people are talking about but I put it down to the two bands developing their styles in a similar direction rather than outright plagiarism.Read more ›
---BEFORE LISTENING TO IT---
WHY DID YOU SELECT THIS ONE? The cover makes it look like progressive rock inspired ambient music. I expect the band comes from Sweden or Norway and do big, ambitious classical inspired suits instead of mere songs. Also I wouldn't be surprised if it's a concept album. As a Pink Floyd fan I can't help but be curious about these types of things. I'm not at all convinced that it will be even listenable, but I thought I'd take a big gamble on it.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE COVER? It's a photograph of two giant rocks (I doubt they're hills, or that they are manmade structures) with a bridge connecting them at the top. The night sky is bathed in majestic colours caused by an astrological event or something. It's nothing great but it's of interest to me as I recognise the place. If I remember right Kenneth Anger filmed Marianne Faithful at this location for his avant-garde 30 minute film Lucifer Rising (a comically bad movie). Apparently it's a place of pilgrimage for Satanists, druids etc because of the regularity of these glowing sky events. Of course, it could be a made up sci-fi painting of an alien landscape?
WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC ARE YOU REALISTICALLY EXPECTING? High, keening male vocals on mostly slow, quiet, hushed, ambient music disrupted every five minutes by big operatic heavy metal sections. I also expect long songs of about seven to fifteen minutes. The bands I'm most comparing them to are ...Read more ›

From a technical aspect, this album reminds me of the likes of Meshuggah, Soilwork and Tesseract. The front man's deep clean vocals remind me a lot of Soilwork and the riffs are reminiscent of bands like Tesseract, Periphery and Monuments. The choruses and soaring riffs are the album's strong point. The length in the songs is also most welcome.
I'd recommend this to fans of metal who appreciate both brutal and melodic vocals with a more technical approach to the metal genre. The main reason why I loved this so much was because they are in the same class of Tesseract, Soilwork, Periphery and other European or djent metal bands. (I'm aware that Periphery isn't European)
Right up there with Gojira and that is saying a lot.
