|Christian Motherfucking Alvestam|
I'm loving everything i've heard that he has been a part of. I'm
pumped for Solution.25
whenever that comes out. Any other noteworthy bands that
include him? These are the 6
albums i've heard that include him ranked btw.
Wow. I'm surprised this only has 5 ratings on sputnikmusic. Any of the site's metalheads will eat this
It's essentially melodic/progressive death metal but with a lot more punch. Kind of like if Edge of Sanity
were...edgier (HA!). The synths give this album a moderately eerie atmosphere as well. Definitely check
this one out, I may review this with school being almost out.
Alvestam plays lead guitar on this album, instead of his usual vocal roles. Like Unmoored, this is a lot
heavier than his work with Scar Symmetry, there's an almost black metal feel to some of the
Definitely my favorite Scar Symmetry album. It is easily their most solid and consistent release. Plus, the
title track and the two Ghost Prototype songs are easily among their best songs.
Your Demons Their Angels
Has grown off of me a bit since my original listen, but it's still a very strong death metal album.
at his best vocally on this album, at least concerning his growls. My only gripe with this album is that
with many other great death metal releases, there is very little variation. That doesn't stop this album
from kicking ass though.
Pitch Black Progress
This album has a lot of Scar Symmetry's best songs, including The Kaleidoscopic God, Carved in Stone,
Deviate From the Form. However, most of the shorter tracks seem like filler to me.
Symmetric In Design
I only just heard this yesterday, and was pretty impressed with it. However, the production irks me
and other than the obvious highlight "Chaosweaver," not much truly stood out to me. This will probably
grow on me though.
|Christian is a beast. Will check out the ones I haven't heard.|
|I'll definitely check out 1 at some point. And it's Solution .45 not .25 (I apologize if I put that in my comment on your other list)|

|Man is a beast for sure. I have everything here except for 1 which I couldn't find but I'll search for it again. Can't wait for the new Miseration and Solution .45 albums. |
