Biography

Avesta, Sweden (2004 – present)

Scar Symmetry is a band from Avesta, Sweden formed in 2004. In addition to the typical aesthetics (numerous melodies and harmonies in the guitars, growling vocals, etc.), they incorporate synthesised sounds into their music. Their lyrics are themed towards astronomy, philosophy, mysticism and inner struggles.

The band’s third album “Holographic Universe” was released on June 20, 2008. Following the release, Scar Symmetry did not embark on tours and released a statement 11 September 2008, announcing that they had parted ways with vocalist Christian Älvestam, due to touring conflicts and creative differences. On 6 October, they announced the replacements for Christian Älvestam: they will continue with two singers, Roberth Karlsson (growls) and Lars Palmqvist (clean vocals).

Members and other projects:
* Roberth Karlsson - Lead Vocals (growls) (Facebreaker, Aktiv Dödshjälp and Tormented)
* Lars Palmqvist - Lead Vocals (clean vocals) (Last Temptation)
* Henrik Ohlsson - Drums (Altered Aeon, Mutant (Swe), Theory In Practice, ex-Diabolical (Swe), ex-Thrawn)
* Jonas Kjellgren - Guitars (Pexilated, Centinex, World Below, ex-Carnal Forge, ex-Dellamorte, ex-Sickenside, guest for Incapacity)
* Per Nilsson - Guitars, backing vocals (Kaipa, Altered Aeon, ex-World Below, ex-Thrawn)
* Kenneth Seil - Bass (Soul Royale)

    The problem with Prism and Gate is that it lacks a fine intro. Otherwise it's brilliant.

    HU worked well as a whole, but had some bad tracks on it, like the missing coordinates or prism and gate.

    I think i only skipped a few tracks in PBP but other then that i never skip any songs. Phase I is just that it doesn't deliver which is probably why some people didn't like the album. But the whole point is this is just Phase I, there's two other albums on the way (whenever that will be) which are the 2nd and 3rd parts so once we get the other two it'll be interesting to listen to all the parts at once.

    Even on HU there were a few tracks that I skipped most of the time and I have problems remembering now (despite re-listening it earlier this year). Phase I, once I pop it in, I listen it from start to finish and it keeps my attention all the way.

    Remember that the last song is actualy two songs in one :) I am in a huge minority it seems but I actualy like the album short and to the point like now - It has no filler. There were too many albums that boggged down with fillers songs and lost their momentum. I preffer a "bit too short" album over a "bit too long". Another thing is wether the album delivers: I've known many albums that felt short because I felt the band didn't, how to say it, "do them justice". As: I liked the sound, but I waited for the songs to reach a certain level they never did. Phase I is very terse, but it *feels* rich - Each single minute is full of new stuff. That's so much better than a longer album that would be 3 songs repeated a few times over.

    I don't consider the first track (it's not an instrumental, my mistake) to be an actual music track/song so that's why there's really only 6 tracks.

    Thier latest album is a rebound, and more progressive than their last two albums. HU is still tops, but at least this last effort is an improvement - in my opinion.
