French progressive metal band Uneven Structure released one of my favorite albums of all time in 2011. Februus is a back to front masterpiece, taking the Meshuggah-lead djent movement and pushing it into the ethereal with cinematic soundscapes and an overall sense of wonder and passion. To me, the record is perfect, which is why three years feels like an eternity when it comes to waiting on a follow-up. The guys in Uneven Structure understand this, and they’ve been kind enough to hand us a scrap of new music in the form of a guitar playthrough of a 20-second segment of a new song, ‘The Scent.’
Hopefully we’ll get something more substantial soon, but for now, things are looking incredibly promising. More info when we get it.
