Depending what you're going to do with those notes they could be anything or nothing in terms of scales, and until you know what you're going to be doing with them there's little to be gained from arbitrarily sticking a label on them

What the guy above me said. And those notes are not a scale, they are actually arpeggio's. To stick a label on them we need the bigger picture, the whole piece of music

Those chords (in standard tuning) are Am and Em.

So try A minor scale.

It's D# minor with accidentals. There's no point giving those notes a modal feel, as any notes related to create a D# mode is just use of accidentals and colouring.

Who's even mentioning modes here?

If you are tuned in D# (I would rather call it Eb, though), you are playing in Ab minor. As I said, the chords (in standard) would be Am and Em, and in half steps down tuning Abm and Ebm. Play Ab minor scale over it.

But if you want to know what scale fits what chords in the future, try to recognize the key. You must find the key center to know the key. Key center is where everything resolves to. It feels like home. If you are able to find the key center, then you have found the key and just use that scale (if the key is A minor, use A minor scale). When you play the two chords Am and Em, you feel a pull towards the A minor chord.

these notes are part of a song by revocation called enter the hall, i know that they are arpeggios but even then wouldnt certain arpeggios be related to certain scales, i might be wrong but i am not very good with music theory.o my bad that 7 is supposed to be an 8.

The song's in Eb minor. It doesn't follow a specific scale. Not everything in music has to fit a scale exactly. The first chord uses a lot of dissonance, including the b5 and b2. Just account for these two accidentals when soloing.

learn about keys, TS. you can use any note in a key provided you account for resolution and pay attention to your ear rather than your fingers.
