Scar Symmetry interview with Per Nilsson
Just when you think a genre has exhausted its possibilities, when a certain style of metal has hit the wall of mediocrity, along comes a band to jolt life back into it. Hailing from Sweden a Mecca for melodic death metal and on a quest to pioneer their own form of that well-established genre, Scar Symmetry proved to be an exceptional gathering of talents able to produce an eccentric mixture of metal that can only be described as an intoxicating, modern hybrid of melodic death metal. Encapsulating everything each band member loves about metal harmony, melody, brutality, exceptional songwriting, complex instrumentation – this union of Yin/Yang elements lent itself to Scar Symmetry’s blueprint of amalgamation in their quest to make unbridled music devoid of borders.
Gearing up for the release of new album, Metalholic recently had a chat with Scar Symmetry’s primary songwriter Per Nilsson. He discusses new album The Singularity (Phase 1: Neohumanity), songwriting, challenges he faced while working on this concept album, upcoming tours and much more.
