Scar Symmetry Reveals New Album Title To Be "The Unseen Empire"

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!"

Good news that they're not slacking in bringing the new stuff. Dark Matter Dimensions was a decent debut, hopefully they've fine-tuned their new sound. Christian was hard to replace, but they did a decent job.

Highly decent approach replacing Christian. I would be very surprised if they would do another good album without him. *sigh*

I feel like they're a whole different band without Christian. They should've changed their name to something else. But I did still like their newest release without Alvestem and I'll give this new release a listen. But I'm keeping up with Solution .45 and Miseration a lot more.

Solution .45 destroys new Scar Symmetry. Miseration is brutal as hell. Their first album had clean vocals, but the Mirroring Shadow did not, kinda curious about that, but they are still great.

Singers are the most replaced part of a band. Front men come and go, but the true music lies within the writers and instrument players.

I like the theme behind this album, the pineal gland is our awakening!!!!

Idea for the album is interesting... I doubt we'll get another album as great as Pitch Black Progress, but they're still a good band and I'm looking forward to this
