3 stars "8" is the first effort of Uneven Structure in discography and includes a series of tracks that the band has chosen to re-record from previous projects of its members (one of these projects being Longchat). The short (~20 min) EP includes 8 tracks with 7 of them roaming about the 2-minute mark and only the title track surpassing 6 minutes in duration. The music is a clear proof of the influence that Meshuggah have on this new wave of bands that follow this groovy and polyrhythmic style. The majority of the EP's duration displays relentless up-tempo riffs and growling vocals, with the addition of some ambiences that somewhat differentiate the band's sound from its main influence; although mostly interesting, there are moments when these ambient passages sound pretty simplistic. There is a nice flow between the tracks, making them sound more of a concept than individual pieces; this is also boosted by the similarity of the riffs. The exception to the rule is the title track that follows a more mid-tempo pattern with ambiences taking over the leading role.

"8" can be regarded as a promising debut from a band that has chosen to follow an already established musical path. In my opinion, it will be the degree of experimentation that will (or will not) make them distinct in this style. Although not highly impressed, this EP will probably work well for fans of Meshuggah and related bands and can be downloaded for free from the band's website.
