Scar Symmetry - The Unseen Empire (Nuclear Blast/Riot)

When they released Dark Matter Dimensions in 2009 I was underwhelmed. But, being a fan of the band and really wanting to like the new line-up, I persevered. I'm glad I did because Dark Matter Dimensions really started to grow on me. It's no Holographic Universe, but it's good. So now they've settled into the new line-up, what's the latest offering like?

I've been a fan of Scar Symmetry for a while. Their first albums didn't totally grab me, but then they released Holographic Universe in 2008 and I was hooked.

An illumination on the Unseen Empire, as told by Henrik Ohlsson

Wondering about The Unseen Empire; the new Scar Symmetry album? I catch up for a chat about it with the band's drummer Henrik Ohlsson, so you don't have to...

I was a bit worried when I heard I was to interview Henrik Ohlsson, drummer from Swedish melodic death metal outfit Scar Symmetry.
