Swedish progressive melodic death metal band Scar Symmetry just revealed the cover artwork for the band's upcoming album The Unseen Empire.

The Unseen Empire will be released on April 15th through Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented drummer Henrik Ohlsson: "The Unseen Empire seeks to expose the hidden hand of the elite that pull the strings of mankind in order to fullfill their agenda of global domination. The album concept goes from theories of shadow governments to secret ancient bloodlines and even further into speculations of malevolent influence from metaphysical reptilian-based intelligences. Mankind's only hope to survive seems to be an internal awakening where the influence of the the unseen empire that rules in secrecy is washed away from the minds of the masses. They want us to stay within the framework of their agenda, hypnotizing us with things that draw attention but has no value. It's time to step outside the framework and make The Unseen Empire visible!"

Huh. I had absolutely no idea about a new Scar Symmetry album. Cool beans. On my birthday, too.

I'm carefully optimistic.. Hopefully the new singers have grown into their outfit even more.
The last one was not bad by any means, but it was just to average to be a Scar Symmetry album. After that, I wonder if it's ok to label them progressive melodic death metal...

I concur with the user above me. Actually, there was a lot of progressive elements enough to call them like that too, but it was not nearly as brilliant and outstanding as the first three releases. Also seems they were focusing a bit more on heavy part of the music, and less on melodic part of it.

Kinda disappointed with the cover. Not that there's anything wrong with it really. Just they've had some pretty awesome ones in the past. Agree with the other posts that I'm hoping the album will be ab it better than the last.

。。。。。。。this artwork is so disappointed。。。。。。
Timmeh - 26.02.2011 at 04:32  
The artwork seems a little bland. It will be interesting to see how the new vocalists go the 2nd time round.

Wow, art work is rubbish indeed!
kurokamen - 26.02.2011 at 05:14  
Yeah art is really different... I'll dare to hope it will be better than Dark M... Please... Return...

Two-headed Eagle? AEK fans?

Their worst cover artwork for sure.

Already? That seemed fast. Last album was good, but nothing compared to Alvestam's work. Album concept sounds like tinfoil hat bullshit but so long as the music still delivers I don't care.

Disappointing work considering it's from Scar Symmetry who generally produce excellent artwork. But anyway, let's hope the music is good.

The worst artwork of SS by a long mile...like a bland coat-of-arms artwork worthy of a power/folk metal cover....all hope has gone down in the drain...
INÆRIS - 26.02.2011 at 06:37  
I'm going to get this record for the magnificent guitar work that they always deliver. We'll see how this one compares.
Necrodamus - 26.02.2011 at 08:22  
They've done better on the artwork before, just hope the music's just as good...
Ellrohir - 26.02.2011 at 11:44  
Weird image...
neonxaos - 26.02.2011 at 13:50  
Hmm, doesn't do much for me, but who cares? I liked the direction of the last album, but not the vocalists. I'm excited to hear how they have progressed.
Sepulchre - 27.02.2011 at 02:10  
Haha, even their artwork is terrible now... this band is going no where anymore...
Joey Filth - 27.02.2011 at 08:56  
I had no idea that they were releasing a new album. But new Scar Symmetry is always a nice thing. Hope it blows Dark Matter Dimensions out of the water though. That album wasn't bad, just a little weak.

Indeed. SID, PBP and HU hava a awesome Sc-Fi Style. The album after that (I don't even know the title of it because the album was so bad) had a OK cover. But this?... This looks like something some second rate rockband would make... :S
