Review: Scar Symmetry – Holographic Universe 
Following in the fine tradition of the multitude of Swedish metal bands that came before them, Scar Symmetry’s third release HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE pays homage to the heroes of the Gothenburg sound yet at the same time helps this quintet establish its own identity. While it’s easy pickings to point out the In Flames chorus or the Dark Tranquility breakdown, the arrangements are what keep this band high amongst the new crop of emerging metal artists, not to mention the twin guitar tandem whose crushing riff into sweet solo formula lifts tracks like “Artificial Sun Projection” and the coarse “The Three-Dimensional Shadow” to the next level. While the pristinely polished production job may render a sterile listen to some, those who love all things Swedish metal will have no qualms with the latest from this expansive metal squad. http://www.nuclearblastusa.com -Mike SOS
