With the release of the long-awaited second album of their transhumanist Singularity trilogy, Phase II – The Xenotaph, Swedish heavy metal veterans Scar Symmetry continue to tap into one of the most profound evolutions over the course of humanity – that of artificial intelligence. Questions of our future, be it lit by hope or nothing more than a path to inevitable destruction, lend themselves perfectly to the transcendent and exploratory sound of melodeath.
From the uplifting to the brutal, harsh to beautiful, Scar Symmetry weave cyberpunk-tinged philosophy into the delivery of pure, face-melting Swedish metal.
Of course, Scar Symmetry’s extensive back catalogue will be far from neglected even as they bring you to their newest musical frontiers when the band arrive on Australian shores for the first ever time in April 2024 for four shows that are sure to be talked about for a long, long time to come….
