Scar Symmetry Celebrate Their “Cryonic Harvest”
Scar Symmetry have released “Cryonic Harvest,” the second single from their new album, The Singularity (Phase I – Neohumanity). I think it’s more or less as good as the album’s first single, “Limits to Infinity,” which is to say, it’s fine but nothing special. Or, as my main man Vince put it when “Infinity” was released last month:
“It sounds like Scar Symmetry… Those are some typically solid riffs… [Lars] Palmqvist’s cleans [vocals] can’t match [Christian ] Ålvestam’s. But then the chorus is a total cop-out! The same four chords as every pop song ever… The song’s catchy, though.”
Which is just a slightly longer way of saying, “Well, they’re doing better than In Flames, but Pitch Black Progress it ain’t.” It’s weird, but at this point, I’d almost rather hear Per Nillson jamming on new music from The Absence than Scar Symmetry.
Stream “Cryonic Harvest” below and see if you think we’re being too hard on Scar Symmetry or not. The band’s new album, The Singularity (Phase I – Neohumanity) is the first part of a trilogy, and comes out October 6 on Nuclear Blast.
