SCAR SYMMETRY Films 'Noumenon & Phenomenon' Video

Swedish progressive melodic death metallers SCAR SYMMETRY recently filmed a video for the song "Noumenon & Phenomenon" with director Maurice Swinkels (of the Dutch metal band LEGION OF THE DAMNED).

Commented SCAR SYMMETRY drummer Henrik Ohlsson: "The video for 'Noumenon and Phenomenon', shot in early September, is coming together nicely. Maurice is currently editing it and from what we've seen, he's doing a damn fine job! We shot the video at two locations here in Sweden; the first one was basically a photo studio and the second location was... get ready now... an abandoned and haunted insane asylum!"

Added Swinkels: "[It] was great meeting up with the SCAR SYMMETRY guys again since I produced their very first, one of the 'The Illusionist' videos as well. We had two locations, one was shot with green screen, one was an old mental hospital which was actually near the studio of Peter Tägtgren [HYPOCRISY, PAIN]! Very cool!"

Several video screenshots can be viewed below.

"Noumenon & Phenomenon" comes off SCAR SYMMETRY's new album, "Dark Matter Dimensions", which is available for streaming in its entirety on the band's MySpace page. The CD is scheduled for release on October 2 via Nuclear Blast Records.

SCAR SYMMETRY parted ways with singer Christian Älvestam last year 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Christian has since been replaced by Roberth Karlsson (lead growl vocals and backing clean vocals) and Lars Palmqvist (lead clean vocals and backing growl vocals).

SCAR SYMMETRY's last album, "Holographic Universe", debuted at No. 33 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.
