Swedish progressive melodic death metallers SCAR SYMMETRY have been added to the "A Taste of Extreme Divinity" tour as direct support to headliners HYPOCRISY.
Commented guitarist Per Nilsson: "Touring the U.S. with our buddies HYPOCRISY, are you f***ing kidding me?! We'd better make reservations at the Betty Ford clinic! Man, is this going to be a party or what?! We haven't toured North America since 2007, which makes for two albums worth of music never performed live over there. Many thanks to HYPOCRISY for inviting us!"
For a list of dates, see the poster below.
SCAR SYMMETRY's "Noumenon & Phenomenon" video can be viewed below. The clip was shot with director Maurice Swinkels (of the Dutch metal band LEGION OF THE DAMNED).
"Noumenon & Phenomenon" comes off SCAR SYMMETRY's new album, "Dark Matter Dimensions", which was released on October 2, 2009 via Nuclear Blast Records.
SCAR SYMMETRY parted ways with singer Christian Älvestam in 2008 due to "business and creative differences and lack of interpersonal chemistry." The band explained at the time, "We came to a point where the band's existence was in jeopardy because of these differences, and the only way for us to continue with an inspired state of mind was to go through with this change in the lineup." Christian has since been replaced by Roberth Karlsson (lead growl vocals and backing clean vocals) and Lars Palmqvist (lead clean vocals and backing growl vocals).
