i had started a thread on these guys a while back, after their debut, Symmetric in Design. any melodeath fan whose heard it knows it's good. but their latest offering, Pitch Black Progress....is a masterpiece. how the hell did they come up with stuff like this? any fans here?

Great band for sure. I know Derek is a big fan of these guys *waits for Derek to post extremly long post about his immense love for Scar Symmetry*

First cd had some really cool songs, I like how they put alot of their songs together and the solos. Also, the singer has a very good voice!

yeah to bad i made a thread about these guys like a month ago which fizzled out after like 4 replies lol. yeah i love them, i picked up their new one a few months ago via torrent. i think they have a totally original take on melo death, even though its reminisent of soilwork. they have that sound to them where every single song has its unqiue sound to it, so when a song starts, you instantly remember what the rest of the song sounds like. the songs, to me, have a lasting impression which rules teh pwnz0r. the vocalist is extremely versetile, he does the high screams, the low death vocals AND the clean singing. takes talent to pull that off. and dont get me started on the guitarist. he slays so much notage, its incredible. his style is unique in a sense that he uses alot of legato and doesnt just wave his picking hand like hes wacking off. ive obtained alot of cds in the past few weeks with torrents, and purchasing them. yet, ive been coming back to their new cd every other day it seems. this band has something everybody looks for in metal. death vocals, clean vocals, catchy songs, and shredding solos. everyone go out and by a cd by them or atleast check out their myspace, because you will not be dissapointed

all around great band.

EDIT: stfu, keeg lol

Its OK, remind me of Soilwork and In Flames a bit.

There have been a few threads on this band.

I recently got into Scar Symmetry. The vocalist is good, but there's something about the cleans that I don't like (Although I don't think its because they are too nasally)
Quote by Spynal

Man, if only we could have a thread dedicated to recommendations, that would be sweet. Maybe, we could call it ... The Hugfest .... no, that's no good? Metal-O-Rama? Nah.... oh wait.

Scar Symmetry are one of the better new melodic death bands out there. The singer sounds like Mikael Akerfeldt when he growls, and Bjorn Strid when he sings.
#14
it seems like when someone makes the same thread as me, several days after me, it gets like 3 times as many replies.

i mean, do i suck that much??

From what i have heard of this band they are incredibly talented.. I've only heard two songs.. but yeah everyone should go onto their website and have a listen to the song "reborn" being offered as a download.. I really want one of their cds but no where seems to stock them.
Oh and their song the illusionist absolutely blows me away. The vocalist shows his whole range on this song.. He has to be one of my favourite singers in metal.. love scar symmetry

Just thought I'd stop by and revive this, I just got Pitch Black Progress on recommendation from the "Best new bands" thread and it's amazing!
Out of those who've heard both (I haven't...yet...), which album do you prefer?
#27
Quote by everytimeifry
symmetric in design may be the best debut album ive ever heard.

I think The Absence-From Your Grave was better, but SiD still rocks.

It's really close, but I must agree, The Absence is alittle bit better. I need to pick up both of those cds (Absence one, and the Scar Symmetry debut). I only have Pitch Black Progress and it's still amazing, but not as good as the first one.

But Wintersun bets both those debut albums

i really cant decide which is better. honestly ive worn them both down to dust playing them so much. this is the only band ive never been able to decide which album is better.

I was into them even made a thread about them but the new album has been a huge disapointment for me MeloDeath with clean vocals that sound like some Sword weilding Power Metalist is singing no thanks ,they shouldnt have changed the structure of the clean vocals. The new style annoys me to the point in which I feel that I might be better off listening to Septic Flesh vocals.

but hey if you enjoy Power Metal then you probably would like their new album so it's a matter of personal opinion.

The production on "Pitch Black Progress" is awesome. I like bands like these that kind of show up out of no where and release something that is better than that of bands that have been making music for 15 years. Some people compare this band with Soilwork and Arch Enemy, do you guys agree?

Clean vocals sound like Soilwork, but the actual music isn't that similar.

I'm not familiar with most of Arch Enemy's stuff, so I can't really comment on that.

i personally like these guys way better then soilwork and i agree theya re just as good as arch enemy. i believe the guitarist for scar has the most unique style ive seen in any new band thus far. he totally pwns the guitarists for soilwork and arch enemy.

Of course they're better then Soilwork :P

But I prefer the Amott brothers over Scar Symmetry. But I guess one reason is because they have so many years in the music business that they win, since Michael was in Carcass, also I'm a big fan of Spiritual Beggars, and Chris has an ok side project, Armageddon

But I'm sure this opinion is able to change because Scar is great.
#37
^^^fool lol.

scar symmetry's guitarist owns the amott brothers.

I wear boxers thank-you-very much.

But I still love Scars guitarist, I just like alot of Arch Enemy's works and their solos. But yet again Scar has such great solos as well... It's a close call but the Amott brothers are better by like a hair.
