Founded in Sweden back in 2004 when Jonas Kjellgren (Carnal Forge, Centinex), Henrik Ohlsson (Theory In Practice, Mutant), Per Nilsson (Altered Aeon), Kenneth Seil and Christian Älvestam (Unmoored, Incapacity) decided to express a fresh and heavy form of catchy death metal without any boundaries whatsoever.

Nine years and five albums have passed since the band’s debut, ‘Symmetric In Design’, surfaced back in 2005, leading to their highly acclaimed 2011 masterpiece ‘The Unseen Empire’. Now Scar Symmetry are set for the release of ‘The Singularity (Phase I: Neohumanity)’, the first part of a trilogy of concept albums.

The lyrics take 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.

Second guitar player Jonas Kjellgren left Scar Symmetry last year. In his absence, Per Nilsson stepped up from co-producer to become the band’s main producer and 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 third 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 to a decidedly more progressive path while keeping intact all of their trademark death metal sensibilities and larger-than-life melodic choruses.
