Former SCAR SYMMETRY vocalist Christian Älvestam has posted a new song entitled “Bränd Mark” (“Burnt Ground” in English) from his THE FEW AGAINST MANY project (in which he plays rhythm guitar and sings). The track, which is expected to appear on the band’s debut album, “Sot” (“Soot” in English), was recorded at Panic Room studios with producer Tomas “Plec” Johansson and features lyrical contributions from Mikael Stanne (DARK TRANQUILITY) and Jonas Renkse (KATATONIA, BLOODBATH). The cover artwork will be created by acclaimed artist Dan Seagrave (MORBID ANGEL, ENTOMBED, DISMEMBER, SUFFOCATION). A late spring release via Pulverised Records is expected.
THE FEW AGAINST MANY is:
Christian Älvestam – Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
Patrik Gardberg – Lead Guitar
Anders Edlund – Bass
Pär Johansson – Backing Vocals
Jani Stefanovic – Drums
Christian Älvestam announced his departure from SCAR SYMMETRY in September 2008, explaining in a statement, “We’ve decided to part ways . . mainly [because] of different outlooks on musical production and touring. Of course it’s sad to see that SCAR SYMMETRY will not continue in its present form, but unfortunately these things happen. I hope SCAR SYMMETRY will go on being successful, while I myself will for sure keep on singing, playing, writing and performing my own music, in various shapes and forms, for a very long time. My musical journey has just begun!”
