"To The Mountains" is the final track, I like the use of horns/keyboards in it, it's definitely my favourite on it.

I think I'll have to give the album a few more listens before I can judge it properly really...

I recently discovered the band Scar Symmetry. Their debut 'Symmetric In Design' is absolutely great! Anyone else who knows em?

Yes, they are absolute Soilwork-worship, no wonder you like them ;).

But they're good, really.

I know... I'm predictable. So f*cking shallow really :p
Naah but reaaaaaaaly love 'em, and just found out they will also be on the Neckbreakers Ball bill. But already have a ticket ;)

Oh and by the way, Speed from Soilwork can only dream of a grunt like that ;)

I actually prefer Scar Symmetry's stuff to the last couple of Soilwork albums... I don't know what it is but nothing they've done since "Natural Born Chaos" has really grabbed me in the same way as the older stuff.

Well as far as Scar Symmetry goes it's no secret that they're well loved on Sex to 9 (and Diva Satanica now...) I think they're a little bit of every style of metal really, not too much of one thing. Great growling, nice clean vocals, music is melodic, with some guitar virtuoso stuff (but not too much!) some black metal ish bits some more power metal... etc etc... all in all it's a great mixture.

Maria will be airing her interview with Jonas (Scar Symmetry) in about 2 weeks (On April 7th I think to be close to the release date) as well as playing (at least) 3 tracks from the new album :D

You guys really need to listen to the show more often :p

I do, but one needs working sound on one's PC to do that.. And Tinus doesn't have that for over a year now...

BTW, why did SS give their album almost the same title as Callenish Circle's last album "Pitch Black Effects".. I mean, they must've heard of it.. And then, it isn't exactly an obvious title, let alone 2 bands independently come up with almost the same thing, at almost the same time, weird...

If I end up going up to NL to see Scar Symmetry this summer/fall, I'll have a look :p

Good question, Maria had it written as one of her questions, but ran out of time, and didn't get to ask it... :(

Guess I really should ;)

But what I really like in the band is indeed that they combine so much flavors, and I like the vocals. Heard the album 5 times in two days now, really really great band. Looking forward to see them on stage in April!

Nightingale - Nightfall Overture (album)

The re-recording of the song "Nightfall Overture" is great I have to say :).

I am very surprised by this album, the only one I didn't have yet. Always thought it was nothing much interesting, but I was wrong ;)

Ok, here I am, whining again about my discovery of the century (feeeeel the drama ;)) SCAR SYMMETRY!

I recently bought a promo CD of their new album (Pitch Black Progress) from Ebay but my job was so busy the last days I had no time to listen to it :(

This promo contains two tracks of the new album: The Illusionist & Mind Machine. WOWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :hbang32en

I already loved the vocals on Symmetric in Design but this... this is SO cool And they kick ass live as well!

So just bought the new CD in pre-order :D Release is in 5 days!
