Earlier this week, the folks over in charge of Tech-Fest 2013 made their first line-up announcement – and they weren’t messing about. 25 bands, including all three major headline acts, were all covered in the first batch of names. That’s the kind of festival announcement we can get behind, and the kind that we’re making the subject of this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist.
Uneven Structure is a band formed in Metz, France in 2008, playing a nuanced blend of progressive metal and ambient music. The culmination of worC (Aurélien Perreira) and Eggeh (Igor Omodei) projects, their style is inspired by Meshuggah's polyrhythmic structure and muted guitar tones. The EP "8", the band's first release, is available as a free download in its entirety from the band's official website. Their first full-length album, Februus, released on October 31, 2011.

British indy label Basick Records put on their own night in London, featuring instrumental tech metal(/cheese) one-piece Chimp Spanner (yes, he did bring a backing band), excellent French atmospheric tech metallers Uneven Structure and French mentalist The Algorithm. We went along to bang our heads in 17/8 time signature.

Okay, take your hand and cup your balls. Feels good, right? Now do the same, but do it holding a dozen metal tacks. Yep, now you have a bleeding scrotum.
Hard as it is to believe, the French ‘djent’ quintet, Uneven Structure have evoked the same kind of dichotomy from their first full-length offering, Februus. Being at once completely immersive and all-encompassing, whilst also strangely uncomfortable and jagged, this is unsettling and complicated music that provides a startlingly rewarding listen.

Uh oh. A band with a massive online following got a new vocalist. It’s ok though because we love TesseracT and love conquers all. Right? Maybe. Ooh err… Either way, we popped down to the opening night of the Lowering The Tone tour in London to tap our feet in 7/8. It’s really difficult.
