Universum to Record New Album

Australia’s melodic death metal heavyweights Universum will commence recording of the much anticipated follow-up to their debut album "Leto Destinatus" in the coming months.

Due for release in early 2010, the album, tentatively titled "Mortus Machina," will feature guest appearances from vocalist Christian Älvestam (ex-Scar Symmetry), guest guitar solos from Nightrage axe-men Marios Iliopoulos and Olof Mörck. Jens Bogren of Sweden’s Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Soilwork, Amon Amarth, Katatonia) will once again be handling both mixing and mastering duties.

Universum’s lead guitarist Michael Soininen comments: "We are all excited by how the new album is developing so far and believe that the songs have a newfound depth, both musically and lyrically. The combination of the new material, the great guest musicians Christian, Marios and Olof, along with Jens’s mixing and mastering should result in a great album."

Scar Symmetry Wishes You A Fantastic 2009

Scar Symmetry has issued the following 2009 update:

So, another year has come to an end. Our 5th as a band! A lot of cool things happened in 2008. And one very uncool thing. But everything turned out great, luckily.

The year of 2008 started while we were halfway through recording Holographic Universe. Our quickest recording session to date (merely two months!). Some months later the album was released, and we debuted on the Billboard 200 chart! Very cool indeed. Out of all the reviews we've read, it seems most people found themselves somewhere between enthusiastic and ecstatic about the album. A few reviewers didn't understand it, and we feel sorry for them... Haha!

Fast forward another few months and we found ourselves having announced to the world that we had parted ways with our lead vocalist. Crazy move, some people thought. Well needless to say, it wouldn't have happened unless we had some pretty good reasons. Shortly thereafter, we presented the new lineup - featuring two vocalists instead of one! Most people seemed to agree that this was an exciting direction for us to take. After taking the new lineup for a test drive all over not-so-sunny Spain we felt confident that the two singers-approach was a wise decision. More...

Scar Symmetry Wishes You A Merry Christmas

Swedish death metal act Scar Symmetry has issued the following year end update and shout out to the fans:

"First, a big thank you to Jordi/Stigia and José/Doomed Events for making our mini-tour in Spain a wonderful time, and CHEERS to everyone that came to the shows! We will come back to Spain for sure!

It was a pleasure sharing the stage with Rob and Lars for the first time. These guys really know how to put on a show! We did some songs we've never done live before, like "Holographic Universe", "Pitch Black Progress", "Deviate from the Form", "Prism and Gate" and "Artificial Sun Projection"...

Scar Symmetry wishes you all a fuckin' fantastic Christmas holiday!"

Scar Symmetry Reveals Two New Vocalists

Swedish melodic death metal band, Scar Symmetry, have issued the following update welcoming their two new singers:

"When things went from bad to worse and we realized that it wasn't going to work out with Christian, we were faced with two options; either calling it quits, or seizing the opportunity to take the next logical step in the evolution of our sound. We chose the latter."

"We've used both growls and clean vocals in our music since day one, and with each album we've pushed the envelope of what you can do vocally in a metal band to the point where a lot of the songs on 'Holographic Universe' would be hard if not impossible to sing live. So the question is: Is it really possible to push the vocals even further and manage to perform everything live?" More...
