honestly lost interest in these guys after holographic universe...
Until Holographic Universe the band was untouchable, since the departure of christian they went downhill.
will likely be absolutely terrible
If Christian isn't in the band who gives a shit?
Digging: Caribou - Our Love
Band still makes good songs, but as whole their albums are just average
I'm pretty sure most people lost interest in them after Holographic Universe.
Won't be terrible like Crysis says, I don't think, but it'll sure as hell be surprising if it's anything above average.
You people suck holographic universe was a great album and j have no doubt this trilogy will be great
i know its trendy to pretend like you hate the new scar symmetry albums but they're just as good as the old ones.
Are decent but far from the same level of the holographic universe. Still, pretending to hate Scar Symmetry is pathetic, even for a hipster
They're alright too much junz at times though
Really thought they were done after Dark Matter Dimensions, but The Unseen Empire is one of the best metal albums of the last five years at least. Looking forward to this.
Their post-Christian stuff has been pretty underrated. Still I'm not sure about a trilogy.
Digging: Stellar Young - Vessels
First post-Christian album was meh
second post-Christian album was ok--3/5 but nothing special.
I'm sorta glad he's gone, actually. After having lent his voice to many bands over the years, I've come to be really bored of hearing it. His death growl is so distinguishable it's sort of become a cliche in and of itself. I'm glad 'Symmetry's new vocalists don't sound like him.
Digging: We Stood Like Kings - Berlin 1927
They never got BAD per se, they just dropped down to average after Christian left. He added so much to the band and gave them a hugely valuable dynamic to their sound, and without him there's little to really differentiate them from most other melodeath bands these days.
I honestly liked Dark Matter Dimensions, and I thought these guys were better off without Christian. Yeah, the guy is a great vocalist, but I felt like he brought this super pretentious vibe to the music. The Unseen Empire was pretty bad, but I honestly like the two guys more than Christian.
Fair enough. In the end you're the real winner I guess, since the era of Christian is over yet post-Christian Scar has two albums with a trilogy planned.
Holographic Universe is one of my favorite metal album ever, but I still think this band makes great music. Everything they put out is awesome in my opinion and I think the new vocalists are a good fit. Can't wait for this.
gonna prolly suck.
Digging: The Decemberists - What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World
Never got into the guy who handles the 'clean' vocals, so I'm not that interested for this.
will likely be absolutely terrible
Digging: Primitive Man - Home Is Where The Hatred Is
woah, a trilogy? I thought they would disband after one of the guitarists left after the release of The Unseen Empire.
The preview seems quite decent
The Unseen Empire contained some good stuff. Itw as definitely an improvement so this could be great too.
Everything I've heard from this band has been pretty awesome. Holographic Universe has been my favorite that I have been jamming to for about 5 years and I still listen to it frequently.
Three albums is a lot of material but as long as it doesn't all sound like filler and recycled material I think this could be good. If it is a concept story, I'm inteterested even more.
Holographic Universe was a virtually flawless album; losing Christian is easily the worst thing that's ever happened to this band. Dark Matter Dimensions was piss-poor follow up that I tend to forget I even own. On the other hand, I love The Unseen Empire, so I can't help but have high hopes for this.
I'm crossing my fingers and reserving judgment.
the new singers are just as good. one of used to be in Edge of Sanity.
Roberth's growls are by all means top notch. Lars' singing could use some improvement, but it's not tragic either. Anyhow, the singers weren't the problem with their last two albums, it was the songwriting. But have faith - Soilwork released The Living Infinite after three absolutely abysmal albums and one good one. Actually The Panic Broadcast was pretty fucking sweet, and it was only the start of an upward slope. If Soilwork could do it, can't Scar Symmetry? puh-lease
