Stéphane Gallay Je vous recommande cet album si vous cherchez du metal progressif technique et que le côté “montagnes russes” entre mélodie et déferlements de violence pure ne vous font pas peur. (Chroniqué sur alias.erdorin.org) Favorite track: Hero.

Surrealistic H. Sapiens Uneven Structures newest album is definitely their best one so far. Paragon sounds more refined and balanced than their older albums. Also the production / Mastering is way above La Partition's level, they've really made a quality gem. Its a really enjoyable album, so don't miss out! Favorite track: Creator.

Rowan Sauer At the broad scale, history often unfolds in a cycle of thesis, antithesis, synthesis. If Februus was the thesis, La Partition was the antithesis. Paragon, I'm so happy to say, is the synthesis, the marriage of what made each of its preceding albums great. This is an impressive realization of Uneven Structure's sound in a beautifully cohesive album with expansive grandiosity, lush ambient soundscapes, and the occasional thousand-ton dive into a djenty assault on the senses. Favorite track: Jester.

Magician 03:38
How long have I been living in this house of cards? The diamond and the heart etiolate. The spade and the club rub off. The white dove landed on my shoulder. Whispering a sweet song to my ear. The white rabbit will be late today...she said. My hands, my backbone are shaking. I was here to bring out their beautiful smiles. These bursts of laughter rocked of illusions. I avoided the sharp blades. I crossed the dancing flames. I got rid of the troubled waters. And I stepped on the hot coals. But tonight is the night of the ultimate illusion. The one that pictures the work of a lifetime. The one where I disappear in a breath...the show is over

Hero 04:42
I climbed over the highest mountains and peaks. I evaded traps and survived the winding paths. I walked in blood and the mud. I ran over the dead bodies of my enemies. Today I'm complete. I contemplate these trophies. In this dusty showcase. In this showcase of doubts. I'm done with all of this. I'm now becoming the answer. I'm done with you today. But at what price ? What a fucking price ! I wonder, I ask you. Are you ready to hear the truth? I don't believe you. Keep rocking with your old illusions. Stay in your pretty dream of soiled glory. And count your victories as we count the coins. I'm done with all of this. I'm now becoming the answer. I'm done with you today. I resume the path of epic battles. But this time they will be mine. I am the answer.

Innocent 05:39
The wet and black stare is pointing to the sky. Filled with trampled and shivering innocence . Everything is there, locked up, in deep sleep. For a long time chained to this ramshackle ship. Let me touch my dream again. The one I wanted to keep. The blond and thin curls are falling on this face. Our laughs are lost in the nowadays gloom. Tears running through time made crevices . Do you really think you can take that away? Oh no you can't, it's a promise, an end in itself. I have been and I am the hero you've never were. I have the power of bliss and happiness. Let me touch my dream again. The one I wanted to keep. I left them, alone in my world. I forgot to leave'em the code. My beloved brothers,forgive me. I have gone astray. I am walking towards you. I'm looking for the way back. I could fly above you long ago. Laugh of everything and.. So much laugh of you. I can still feel the special scent of our innocence. I can still feel the taste of this sweet late afternoon. I bring back both the worst and the best from my trip. But nothing compared to your laughter that I begin to sense.

Outlaw 06:15
I tried so hard to follow the rules. The visible ones and the non-visibles. The ones that have been engraved in the flesh. The ones that have been entered by the blows. But the animal is always the strongest. The reptile I am is always taking over. I tried to cage it a lot of times. But he escaped ever and ever stronger. I broke my chains and let go. I have a wild heart, reason is dead. No one owns anything but everything belongs to me. My wishes are legion and my desires are queens. I want to take and steal everything I can love. To consume it as a beast. I want to take and give the impossible. I love and hate without counting. As much for good as for bad. I want to enjoy all my senses to the end. Take me as I am or don't take me at all. The beauty of my fretful pleasures reigns. I broke my chains and let go. I have a wild heart, reason is dead. The game is worth the candle. I will burn it at both ends.

Creator 05:43
What should I do with this white page ? I don't know. What should I do with this wasteland ? I don't know. I see in the distance life emerging from the void. I see now the horizon budding under my eyes. I can feel it now, bright colors piercing me deep from all sides. Doubts and fears pulling me down. Ego and madness pulling me up. Melodies and rhythms clashing in my mind. Nothing arises, everything is elusive. Nothing stands still, nothing makes sense anymore. The paint flows and draws this new world. A place beyond my dreams Words are tangling in harmony. A tale beyond my dreams The writer's sweet feather has finally written the story. I can now admire my toil. And finally savor what has long been locked up. My work is final. I close the old book.

Ruler 05:19
I find myself here alone, stunned and shivering. I didn't see anything coming, nothing...and yet... The crimson rivers flow away, creating furrows. The trails of my defeats drawing in the snow. A sweet wind makes the still feathers sing. Planted in a soiled white ground and frozen flesh. I received this great power as a grace. But it was just a curse at its place. It infected my ideals, all my thoughts, my blood, my vision. It killed my empathy, my love, my mercy, my emotions. Everything I was vanished little by little. I became that monster of vanity. I threw away my loves, my flesh in the blaze. Oh my children ! What have I done? Who am I ? I became the crazy king, so dreaded. I got fat from their toil, from their pain. I got drunk from their sweat, from their blood. I got dressed with my gown of delusion. I got knighted with my crown of perversion. I was wrong ! I cheated on you all !

Jester 04:49
You! On the other side of this perverted echo. I'm now a toy and you kill my faded ego. For those who rejoice in reveling in strange things. To touch closely the impenetrable thoughts of beings. And kill the apathy that they face in their own reflection. That smile, my smile is only a knife-drawn facade. Only their black eyes immersed into the void could erase that. Those who don't see, those who don't lie and those who can read the truth. Why? Stuck in this dilapidated carousel turning into infinity. Stuck in this endless day, this spiral sinking into absurdity. Every day I put on my trained monkey suit. And I tirelessly do my trick over and over again. Surrounded by these shiny plastic clowning faces. It will have been enough of a spark. The frightened child is now sleeping soundly. It's now my turn to play with souls and bodies. I laugh, I run, I dance, I enjoy this ballet of unspeakable feelings. I thought that all of this would be fun. Why? But I see (Why?) everything slipping into a beautiful nonsense.

Lover 05:11
Sitting at the edge of the bank. I see this face, a resonance. A reflection that I knew, That I know and love. I feel an echo beyond all. Look at me and plunge into me. You'll know who you are. I'll give you everything you expected. We are one. To ashes we'll burn. Into diamonds we'll turn. I contemplate this splendid painting. Made of my scars, with my diseases. I'm and I will be the vessel of all your evils. I'll tell you who's the prettiest. We'll drink together this fine wine of youth. The essence of all this is now done. Everyone would want a part of us. Everyone will need to feel us and eat us. I won't allow such a thing. I'll drink it to the last drop. We will never belong in these dog's maws.

Everyman 05:16
I had this strange dream that last night. And I woke up soaked in sweat, Stinking of fear and weakness. With this bitter and familiar taste in my mouth. The taste of defeat, the taste of waste. I think I stayed asleep for too long. I bent my spine my whole life. I burnt the meadow of my desires. I offered you my heart on a silver tray. You ate it, shat it and ate it again. I gave you my vessel. You have happily burnt it slowly. I watch the dripping candle of my desires. They are not all gone to ashes. I touch the shivery flame of my fantasies. Although flickering it still burns my fingers. But today that's you Mr Liar. That's you I'm going to watch burn slowly. I am the end of your story. I am the end of your era. I watch the dripping candle of my desires. They are not all gone to ashes. I touch the shivery flame of my fantasies. Although flickering it still burns my fingers. The curtain has fallen, The barriers have broken. And heads will start rolling. I am the end of your story. I am the end of your era. I will never be this lifeless instrument. I will carry my torch to the highest peaks.

about

Uneven Structure Montpellier, France

While listening to the new album „La Partition“ you will hear and feel the progress and growing the band made since „Febru-
us“, due to the fact that their sound is now even more complex and perfectly arranged, catchy, experimental and technically enhanced, but also groovy. A perfect combination of the hardness of metal with the elaborate techniques of prog and the atmospheric sounds of ambient.
