Scar Symmetry is a Melodic Death Metal band with a little bit of 80's metal twist, with a slight pop influence (especially with their latest album). I've listened to this band since a few months of their release of their second album. They are alright, it's a shame they kicked the old singer. What's hilarious, is that they needed to new singers to replace him.

Besides the music, the other thing I like about this band is their lyrics, which usually have to do with Science, quantum mechanics, and eastern theories. But of course, they also cover the topic of inner human struggle, and what not. The lyricist always tries to write from the perspective of another person, not just himself.

Here are a few songs

From their first Album
"Dominion"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5wAblBhXQY


From Their second (one of my favorites)
"Pitch Black Progress"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udnrj-2QdOU


From Their latest
"Ghost Prototype II - Deus Ex Machina"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SV9o3FTpAf0

Hahaha...I had a blonde moment. I looked at the name of the band for about two minutes and tried to figure out where I recognized it from. Then I realized you talked about them on D1, too.

Dominion is an excellent song. Makes me wish they stuck more to death metal than move to an 80's metal spin off Razz

Christian was a loss. The new clean lead singer sucks doing Christians vocal work. Roberth, the new screamer, is alright with Christians screams, though, they are different styles. Just wait until some new Scar Symmetry material comes out, the new lead singers will hopefully show their true colors with their original work in the song.

SCAR SYMMETRY - ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM

Swedish melodic progressive death metallers SCAR SYMMETRY have set Dark Matter Dimensions as the title of their new album, due in October via Nuclear Blast Records.

TRACK LIST:
01. The Iconoclast
02. The Consciousness Eaters
03. Noumenon And Phenomenon
04. Ascension Chamber
05. Mechanical Soul Cybernetics
06. Non-Human Era
07. Dark Matter Dimensions
08. Sculptor Void
09. A Parenthesis In Eternity
10. Frequency-Shifter
11. Radiant Strain
12. Pariah

SCAR SYMMETRY parted ways with singer Christian Alvestam last year due to "business and creative differences and lack of interpersonal chemistry." The band explained at the time, "We came to a point where the band's existence was in jeopardy because of these differences, and the only way for us to continue with an inspired state of mind was to go through with this change in the lineup."

Christian has since been replaced by Roberth Karlsson (lead growl vocals and backing clean vocals) and Lars Palmqvist (lead clean vocals and backing growl vocals).

Who else will be preordering this album when it's available for preorder?
