SCAR SYMMETRY‘s latest album, “The Unseen Empire”, sold around 1,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 11 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“The Unseen Empire” was released on April 15 in Europe and May 17 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.
Commented SCAR SYMMETRY drummer Henrik Ohlsson: “‘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!”
