Founded back in 2004 when Jonas Kjellgren (CARNAL FORGE, CENTINEX, WORLD BELOW), Henrik Ohlsson (THEORY IN PRACTICE, MUTANT, ALTERED AEON), Per Nilsson (ALTERED AEON), Christian Älvestam (UNMOORED, INCAPACITY, TORCHBEARER) and Kenneth Seil decided to put together a brand new constellation that would express a fresh and heavy form of catchy death metal without any boundaries whatsoever, SCAR SYMMETRY now celebrate year ten of their outstanding carrier.
Nine years and five albums have passed since the bands’ debut »Symmetric In Design« popped up all of a sudden back in 2005 and three since their highly acclaimed 2011 masterpiece »The Unseen Empire«. 2014 SCAR SYMMETRY are set for the release of a creation called »The Singularity (Phase I – Neohumanity)« which is the first part of a concept album trilogy. The lyrics bring the listener beyond the event horizon of the technological singularity, where the ever-advancing breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, robotics, cryonics and cloning are bringing mankind to the verge of technocalypse and cybergeddon!
Between the 2011 release and this one there was a line-up change as 2nd guitar player Jonas Kjellgren left SCAR SYMMETRY 2013. In his absence, Per Nilsson has stepped up from being the co-producer to being the band's main producer and he is now the band's sole music composer. Additionally, Lars Palmqvist and Roberth Karlsson have grown considerably as vocalists and frontmen since joining the band back in 2008 - this is their 3rd album with SCAR SYMMETRY and their performances are bound to turn even the most stubborn sceptic around.
»The Singularity (Phase I – Neohumanity)« marks a new direction for SCAR SYMMETRY with Per Nilsson at the helm, moving the band on to a decidedly more progressive path, while keeping intact all of their trademark death metal sensibilities and larger-than-life melodic choruses.
