Although Uneven Structure are probably more well known these days for their unique approach to djent that incorporates post-metal and ambient influences, there was a time when the band was a lot more focused on creating extremely heavy and angular music that drank from the same glass as Meshuggah‘s Catch 33. 8 acts as one extended 24 minute track split into movements and was originally recorded back in 2009, but in the waiting period between the band’s debut and upcoming second album, they decided to revisit the EP and re-record and re-work it in full. And now you can hear it, in full, right here:
Guitarist Igor Omodei also gave an insight into both the recording and their work on their upcoming release, stating:
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.
8 will be available from the 3rd of June via those lovely people at Basick Records.
