Scar Symmetry Added To Hypocrisy Tour
February 18, 2010
Swedish progressive melodic death metallers, Scar Symmetry, have been added to the "A Taste of Extreme Divinity" Tour as direct support to headliners Hypocrisy. Guitarist Per Nilsson commented:

"Touring the US with our buddies Hypocrisy, are you f***ing kidding me?! We'd better make reservations at the Betty Ford clinic! Man, is this going to be a party or what?! We haven't toured North America since 2007, which makes for two albums worth of music never performed live over there. Many thanks to Hypocrisy for inviting us!"

Scarn Symmetry Premiere New Video Clip On Myspace
December 4, 2009
The new video clip for the song "Ascension Chamber", by Swedish progressive melodic death metallers Scar Symmetry, has been posted on the bands MySpace profile, and can be viewed below.

Commented guitarist Per Nilsson: "A spiritual entity that originates from the sun travels through the solar system, destination: the earth. That's the basic concept of the song 'Ascension Chamber'. So when we decided to do a video for it, we knew we had to set it in space!

We shot the video on the 25th of October with director Ronny Hemlin, only two days before we went on the Neckbreakers Ball tour with Behemoth, DevilDriver and Arsis. We performed "Ascension Chamber" every night on tour and it's one of those songs that just works really well live. It's a keeper on the setlist for sure."

"Ascension Chamber" comes off the bands latest effort 'Dark Matter Dimensions', out now on Nuclear Blast Records.

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2004
HOME TOWN: Sweden
MEMBERS:
Lars Palmqvist - Clean Vocals
Roberth 'Robban' Karlsson - Growls/Screams
Jonas Kjellgren - Guitars
Per Nilsson - Guitars
Kenneth Seil - Bass
Henrik Ohlsson - Drums

SCAR SYMMETRY was formed in 2004 when Jonas Kjellgren (Carnal Forge, Centinex, World Below), Henrik Ohlsson (Theory In Practice, Mutant, Altered Aeon), Per Nilsson (Altered Aeon), Christian �lvestam (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. The band wanted to incorporate huge synthesizers into the music, along with blazing vituoso guitar soloing, which would all be backed up with complex but catchy rhythms and every style of singing known to metal in general.
In April 2004 SCAR SYMMETRY recorded a demo of the song "Seeds of Rebellion", which caught the interest of Cold Records, and very soon a recording contract was inked. A period of intense songwriting followed. In July the same year SCAR SYMMETRY entered the Black Lounge studio (Centinex, Incapacity) to start the recording of the debut album "Symmetric in Design", an album that would showcase 12 songs of excellent musicianship and outstanding songwriting. After 3 months in the studio the album was finally finished and scheduled for a February 2005 release. Songs like "Veil Of Illusions" and "2012, The Demise Of The 5th Sun" display an incredibly heavy side of the band, while "Chaosweaver" and "Dominion" bring forth a considerably higher tempo without losing any of the intricate harmony structures. The lyrics delve deep into the human subconscious, attempting to resurrect imagination and awe in the listener, which is also reflected in the brilliant album artwork designed by P�r Johansson (pjillustrations).
