Die schwedischen Progressive Melo Deather SCAR SYMMETRY werden ihre neue Scheibe „The Unseen Empire“ am 15. April über Nuclear Blast Records auf den Markt bringen.
Das Konzept des Albums beschreibt Henrik Ohlsson dabei wie folgt:
„‚The Unseen Empire‘ seeks to expose the hidden hand of the elite that pull the strings of mankind in order to fulfill their agenda of global domination. The album concept goes from theories of shadow governments to secret ancient bloodlines and even further into speculations of malevolent influence from metaphysical reptilian-based intelligences. Mankind’s only hope to survive seems to be an internal awakening where the influence of the unseen empire that rules in secrecy is washed away from the minds of the masses. They want us to stay within the framework of their agenda, hypnotizing us with things that draw attention but has no value. It’s time to step outside the framework and make ‚the unseen empire‘ visible!“
