Structural is a melodic/technical death metal band, Formed in 2015 by guitarists Shani Friedman & Tamir Vered, vocalist Nadav Zaidman and drummer Yahel Goldstein. After several line-up changes, the band now features Shani Friedman and Tomer Dembinsky (Guitars), Nadav Zaidman (Vocals), KoƦen Ɇsco (Bass) and Vadim Sergyenko (Drums).
Motivated by the ambition to create its own unique voice, Structural has been working for three years on soldering the right combination of fierce drumming, complex and odd-timed modern riffs along side communicative melodies, led by utterly ruthless vocals. In order to achieve a relentless outcome, the group turned to producer Alex Zvulun in august of 2016 and started working on their debut album “Metacognition”, which has been released on June 3rd 2018.
"Increasingly rare is the band that can capture the feral nature of death metal and implement melodies that are incredibly catchy without diluting the formula. “Metacognition” is the type of album that handles both of these things with grace and power"
"Structural’s debut album is stunning vocally and drum wise as well. Vocalist Nadav Zaidman is stellar. His harsh vocal range is impressive, as are his clean vocals. The melodic singing is only lightly sprinkled throughout this release, but it’s also a necessity to the band’s overall sound."
"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."
"If you like Death when they turned the progressive corner and all the melodic/progressive music they inspired, Metacognition is definitely one to add to the collection."
“…And I’m more than happy to announce that it’s hard to miss the fact that this band is different.”
