Uneven - God's Anger
Folk Metal
4 songs (10:52)
Release year: 2010
Reviewed by Goat

Following on from their great demo of last year, Balkan Folk/Prog Metallers Uneven return with another collection of songs, and as before, it’s well worth your attention. Kicking off immediately with the instrumental Uneven, the band take a thrash-tinged Prog Metal direction, heavy riffs combining with creative drum patterns to produce a good introduction to the rest of the demo. Things get even better from then on, the following track The Climb opening with acoustic strums and soon turning almost balladic as singer Ivan Nikolić croons in a folky style and the band gradually introduce heavier riffage. The ethnic folk influences mixed into their sound work very well, and this interesting dimension gives songs a, well, uneven feel that makes every track fun, the quirky, System Of A Down-esque title track a good example.

There are only four tracks present, only one of which is over three minutes long, yet each has its own personality and is distinct from the others. Igrale se Delije’s speed and natively-sung lyrics are enough to ensure any fan of Finntroll has a good time, for example – the band are apparently working on a full-length, and I hope they take the time to get some longer songs written, as they have more than enough instrumental skill and their love of a good time is very apparent and should result in even better material next time. Remember the name; with a bit of luck, they’ll be signed to Nuclear Blast and touring their first album this time next year! In the meantime, you can hear this (lamentably short) demo via the MySpace link below.
