Djent-Metal is one of the sounds of the hour with which bands like Tesseract, Textures or Periphery have already won many fans in the progressive scene. Especially Tesseract and Textures feel very comfortable there and don't get tired of emphasizing that Djent is only the most modern form of progressive metal for them. Both bands have already performed splendidly this year. Uneven Structures are now pushing their debut album "Februus" behind. On their first EP "8" the French sounded too much like a Meshuggah copy, but with "Februus" the sextet has now extended their own boundaries and also delivered a remarkable piece of music in terms of production (reminiscent a little of Devin Townsend's work). The sick force of Meshuggah is interwoven with the fine polyrhythmics of Tool, crowned with big melodies and rounded off with dreamlike ambient soundscapes. Oh yes, a word about Devin Townsend: It would be interesting to find out what the Canadian producer could tickle out of this band.
