Holy crap do I have a serious treat for you all courtesy of Melodic Technical Death Metal virtuosos Structural! I really dig the band’s sound because (unless you’re Arsis or Inferi) it’s awfully tough to add solid melody when you’re a technical death metal band……and Structural have achieved just that.  Shani and Tamir have a wild chemistry on guitar….it’s absolutely mind blowing.  While they are well versed, the riffs are very raw and diverse for the technical scene at least.  But their leads are very melodic and emotional, something you don’t see enough in technical music.  Generally, it’s quicker guitar leads and material that’s pretty tough to play…..in this case, its very emotional and real.  Let’s be honest for a moment here, as much as I dig the genre occasionally it gets robotic and Structural is anything but that!

STRUCTURAL: 

Vocals – Nadav Zaidman
Guitars – Shani Buchbi
Guitars – Tamir Vered
Drums – Vadim Sergyenko

Now let me dive into the realms of the band’s vocalist Nadav……what a great range of gutturals! His voice is very captivating and consistent, with some occasional highs here and there.  For the most part his energetic and passionate voice sticks to the lower end.  Vadim’s drumming is equally as impressive, holding some some solid mid tempos but can play some pretty quick parts with ease. Structural can groove as well as any metal band, don’t be fooled because they can play pretty quick as well…..there’s lots of solid foot tapping grooves everywhere! This monster album has been out since June of 2018 and I highly recommend you pick this up.  Go to their band camp and pick up the album, or you can acquire it through the Apple realms as well and on streaming services.
