Scar Symmetry Streaming New Song

Swedish melodic death metal act Scar Symmetry has just posted a new song by the name of "Illuminoid Dream Sequence" to the band's official Facebook profile at this location.

Commented drummer Henrik Ohlsson: "Illuminoid Dream Sequence displays an encounter with the unseen and insane ethereal forces that guide the members of the Illuminati. These forces use humans as portals into our world and all they want is to dominate and control everything at any cost. The music for the song is very special since it goes from pretty progressive yet mellow parts into pure insanity and then back again!"

The band's new album "The Unseen Empire" (which marks the bands second album with singers Robban Karlsson and Lars Palmqvist) will be out April 15th, 2011 via Nuclear Blast.

Scar Symmetry Reveals New Album Title

Swedish progressive death metal act Scar Symmetry has revealed the title of its forthcoming new studio album. The album has been given the name of "The Unseen Empire" and will see its release on April 15, 2011 through Nuclear Blast Records. Scar Symmetry drummer Henrik Ohlsson commented on the new album by saying:

"'The Unseen Empire' seeks to expose the hidden hand of the elite that pull the strings of mankind in order to fulfill their agenda of global domination. The album concept goes from theories of shadow governments to secret ancient bloodlines and even further into speculations of malevolent influence from metaphysical reptilian-based intelligences. Mankind's only hope to survive seems to be an internal awakening where the influence of the unseen empire that rules in secrecy is washed away from the minds of the masses. They want us to stay within the framework of their agenda, hypnotizing us with things that draw attention but has no value. It's time to step outside the framework and make 'the unseen empire' visible!"
