Swedish progressive melodic death metallers SCAR SYMMETRY performed at this year’s edition of the annual metal soccer tournament “Metallsvenskan”, which was held May 13-14, 2011 in Örebro, Sweden. Also appearing at the event were BULLET, DOCTOR MIDNIGHT THE MERCY CULT, D-A-D, GAMMA RAY, GRAVEYARD, SATOR, SODOM and TORTURE DIVISION, among others.
Since vocalist Roberth Karlsson was on tour with FACEBREAKER when this year’s “Metallsvenskan” took place, SCAR SYMMETRY played the show with Richard Bendler from ENGULFING RAGE as a temporary replacement.
Fan-filmed video footage of SCAR SYMMETRY‘s performance can be viewed below.
SCAR SYMMETRY‘s latest album, “The Unseen Empire”, was released on April 15 in Europe and May 17 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.
Commented 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!”
