I have it, and did notice the large amount of harmonious, clean vocals, which pleases me immensely!
For someone unfamiliar with their catalog what are some suggestions for a starting point? What do you consider their best CD?
I'm picky with bands that use harsh vocals, but Scar Symmetry I dig to no end. I became a fan during their Holographic Universe release and I've followed them ever since. I'm looking forward to this set and I'm sure it will be intense!
Sean, you and I have similar taste and I dig this band. I think you should start with Holographic Universe. The harsh vocals fit the music well and the clean vocals are some of the best heard anywhere. The whole thing just hits on all cylinders.
I am sure you will get alot of replies, but their last album (Singularity) as Glen noted, is their most progressive with the most clean vocals overall. It depends on which end of the heaviness scale you swing from....
I was first introduced to the band in 2006 when they released Pitch Black Progress. I love the album for what it is, pure melodic death metal.
Holographic Universe was an amazing follow up, so those 3 albums are where my heart lies in this band's catalog. Hope that helps.
I'd start with their latest. I personally think it's on a completely different level compared to the rest of their discography (which is saying a lot since their whole discog is pretty damn good). The Singularity only has 6 actual songs, but it's a complete listening experience that demands to be listened to from beginning to end almost every time. Excellent, excellent songwriting, vocals from both singers are absolutely fantastic, great riffs and solos, the production is awesome, I can't think of anything objectively wrong with the album.
"Latest disc has more clean vocals than growls for all you sensitive souls."
Glenn put it best. Plus, PPUSA could afford to use a heavier band this upcoming year. I highly doubt the heaviest from "Pitch Black Progress" will be on the setlist anyway.
So excited to see them on the bill. Now can we have Mercenary and Amorphis come back to the fest as well? Its been long enough
I mean Glenn IS a magic maker...
was reading this thread at work today. Went back and listened to Holographic Universe on the way home. Scar Symmetry are going to fuck shit up next year. I love it.
Pitch Black Progress is their best album IMO.
This is another one that the Purveyor and I can agree on. Generally speaking, I am not that much into harsh vocals, but SS definitely resonates with me. Musically, I love they heavy technical approach. The melodic vocals are killer and the rough stuff seems to fit perfectly.
I love how big and positive a reaction these guys are getting. This is going to be a fantastic show.
Love holographic universe. ..the latest one as well.So happy they are playing
