ryanexsus cmon, people just say their oppinion. With and without Christian...the band is 👌👌👌 but c. is able to do anything - screaming, growling and singing. The other 2...are also very good ;) but c. Hmmm...hes not from this planet
Lord Vile 12 октября 2017 года в 03:26
+ryanexsus its not that the band can't move on without christian, its that we fans are sad that a singer so good left a band so good, i don't think he will ever find a band that so suited him again
Mikkel H 06 апреля 2017 года в 10:04
Mikkel Sandager can do similar singing and screaming as well. Not as well though. He was previously in Mercenary and is currently recording a new album for his new band - Firesoul
The Thoughtless Believer Wario 11 июня 2016 года в 12:51
I have heard almost every Scar Symmetry song, especially what Christian's been in. I know his vocalist range is absolutely masterful.

Every one of their albums, every one of their songs, all good or amazing.
Alex Budrovich 25 января 2014 года в 12:30 11
Christian has one of the best vocal ranges that i have ever heard .. from Lethean tears from Soloution .45 to his SS days then to the heavy Dreamdecipher from Miseration

I would happily listen to this guy only do clean vocals....but this is good too lol
Daida / Saruman 04 сентября 2014 года в 20:47
Christian Älvestam made a selfmade album named "Self 2.0". He sings most of the time clean, but the album has different genres. I dont know if thats your type, but you can search for the song "once adreamed" on youtube for an song example. :)

The Illusionist

Scar Symmetry


I have embraced your innocence 
I've been cut through the flesh 
And I can resist, building life again

Drawn back to the edge 
To the essence of my fear 
With every ounce of strength 
I intend to survive this life

And we are shaped 
Into a mold that we can't choose

Deception will bury us all 
For the actions 
That kill all respect and desire

Drawn back to the edge 
To the essence of my fear 
With every ounce of strength 
I intend to survive this life

And we are shaped into 
A mold that we can't choose

And we are hopeless now 
Bring back the day 
And we are hopeless now

I'm lost again 
Dead inside 
Drowning without you now 
Lost again 
Drowning without your love 
Dead inside 
Dead inside your eyes 
Lost again

It's not the companies, it's the horrible you tube policies which doesn't even give companies much of a choice...
The Ghastly Haunter 14 января 2016 года в 17:02
I know, who cares if there is music in the background, is it causing any harm at all, it's especially annoying when you purchased the song.
Jason 14 января 2016 года в 14:18
+GigaToxicReaper Yeah. They only changed the music because it got copyrighted.

Honestly, I don't get the whole outrage when people put of videos with music in the background. I understand if someone uploads a song wholesale without anything else in the video, but it someone puts up a video that's non-profit and has a few songs in the background then I don't see anything wrong with that. I don't get why all of these companies have to get their panties in a bunch. If anything it's giving the bands more exposure so that people will go and buy their songs off itunes or google play or whatever.

In my opinion, Pitch Black Progress is one of the best albums ever made. It's rare to see an album that doesn't have one bad song included, even the "worst" songs on it are great.

freakymrq 14 октября 2012 года в 06:25 0
Well everyone has their preferences; whether it is listening to rap or metal or how they want the music made. Personally I don't hate their new music it's just that I prefer the old stuff. It was an amazing group that had an amazing vocalist, drummer, guitarist etc. all in one.
Shlazey 13 октября 2012 года в 11:57 0
Actually, i prefer the vocals in the new album... I like having both growls and screams in my melodic death metal.

SpeakNShredderFilms 09 апреля 2012 года в 21:33 0
Okay, Christian certainly knew what he was doing on stage, unlike the other guys. And his voice is as awesome as fuck. But no one's even given a small chance to the new guys who are really good. I just think they deserve Kudos for doing an above average job while dealing with frustrated Super-fans shouting how apocalyptically bad they think they are to them and how much better Christian was. If you were a true, die-hard SS fan, you would be unwavering in your support for their decisions. METAL.

First time when I heard this band a long time ago, I honestly thought they had 2 vocalist. I was shocked to find out Älvestam did both! Sucks that he left though. The two new guys I found were horrible on next album. But they improved alot on the latest album.

Yeah, the unseen empire wasn't bad and I love solution .45 and miseration and you should check out universum.

I still like the stuff they put out, but I keep following Christian Älvestam and all his other work with Solution .45 and his various other projects. He is kick-ass, and irreplaceable.

The name of the song is "Rebel Ninjas"
