Swedish Melodic Death Metallers SCAR SYMMETRY will release their new album and successor to 2011’s highly acclaimed masterpiece The Unseen Empire on the 6th of October via Nuclear Blast. The new album is titled The Singularity (Phase I – Neohumanity) and is the first part of a trilogy of albums that the band are working on.
Guitarist Per Nilsson comments: “I thought to myself… am I allowed to fuse death metal with AOR and go extreme in both directions? I didn’t ask for permission, I just went and did it – and I’m pretty excited to hear what people are gonna think about it.”
Drummer & Lyricist Henrik Ohlsson adds: “‘Limits To Infinity’ unveils the malevolent plan of the elite, the hidden hand, and their discoveries regarding the secrets of the universe. The lyric elaborates on the decision makers’ long-term plan to merge with machines and colonise other planets.”

Per Nilsson commented on the lyrical concept for the new album: “The lyrical concept that Henrik came up with for The Singularity trilogy is huge in scope, complex and awe-inspiring – and naturally the music I wrote needed to follow suit. It is with great pride that we can now present ‘Phase I – Neohumanity’, the first part in the most progressive and elaborate project in the history of Scar Symmetry. What an awesome way of celebrating our 10th anniversary!”
The artwork for The Singularity (Phase I – Neohumanity) was created by Mircea Gabriel Eftemie, who has also created artwork for the likes of BRING ME THE HORIZON, CARCASS, VOLBEAT and much more. Eftemie will be doing the entire artwork for the forthcoming album trilogy.
