Dutch singer Anneke van Giersbergen will forever be known as the vocalist for melancholic metallers The Gathering, but since striking out on her own in 2007, she has solidified a solo career and recorded and performed multiple times with Canadian metal genius Devin Townsend, among others.
To present the progressive metal side of her personality, Anneke formed VUUR in 2016, a new band that features some of the best heavy metal players in the Netherlands.
VUUR will release their full-length debut in October 2017 on InsideOut Music. From there the band will hit the road and focus on new material as well as the heavier side of Anneke's previous outings.

Scar Symmetry —
SCAR SYMMETRY was formed in 2004 when Jonas Kjellgren (Carnal Forge, Centinex, World Below), Henrik Ohlsson (Theory In Practice, Mutant, Altered Aeon), Per Nilsson (Altered Aeon), Christian Älvestam (Unmoored, Incapacity, Torchbearer) and Kenneth Seil decided to put together a brand new constellation that would express a fresh and heavy form of catchy death metal without any boundaries whatsoever.

The band wanted to incorporate huge synthesizers into the music, along with blazing vituoso guitar soloing, which would all be backed up with complex but catchy rhythms and every style of singing known to metal in general. In April 2004 SCAR SYMMETRY recorded a demo of the song «Seeds of Rebellion», which caught the interest of Cold Records, and very soon a recording contract was inked. A period of intense songwriting followed.

In July the same year SCAR SYMMETRY entered the Black Lounge studio (Centinex, Incapacity) to start the recording of the debut album «Symmetric in Design», an album that would showcase 12 songs of excellent musicianship and outstanding songwriting. After 3 months in the studio the album was finally finished and scheduled for a February 2005 release.
Songs like «Veil Of Illusions» and «2012, The Demise Of The 5th Sun» display an incredibly heavy side of the band, while «Chaosweaver» and «Dominion» bring forth a considerably higher tempo without losing any of the intricate harmony structures. The lyrics delve deep into the human subconscious, attempting to resurrect imagination and awe in the listener, which is also reflected in the brilliant album artwork designed by Pär Johansson (pjillustrations).

When signing to Nuclear Blast and releasing their much anticipated new record “Pitch Black Progress” in 2006, the band had evolved so much and reached higher spheres – in the media as well as in the metal community. From then on everyone was convinced SCAR SYMMETRY is more than just another metal band.

Enter 2008, the second album, “Holographic Universe” for the long running German label took the band not only a few more steps up. It crushed into the German Media Control Charts at position #68 in its first week of sale! What a tremendous success! Shortly after this fantastic achievement, the band parted ways with their singer Christian Älvestam – a shock to many but SCAR SYMMETRY knew the deal when replacing him with Roberth “Robban” Karlsson (DEVIAN, FACEBREAKER, EDGE OF SANITY, etc) & Lars Palmqvist for harsh and clean vocals.

Although noone would have thought, an extraordinary singer like Älvestam could be replaced, SCAR SYMMETRY are truly back and stronger than ever! Robban and Lars did an amazing job on “Dark Matter Dimensions” – and so did the rest of the group! The growls even more brutal, the clear vocals even more emotional and moving and the music sticks to what you know from SCAR SYMMETRY, yet mastermind Jonas Kjellgren managed to push his boys into a slightly more progressive direction without losing their punching death metal approach!

In 2011, the band then released their album «The Unseen Empire»
SCAR SYMMETRY are set to release their new album and successor to 2011’s highly acclaimed masterpiece “The Unseen Empire” this fall. The new album”The Singularity (Phase 1 – Neohumanity)” will be out on October 03 (EU), October 06 (UK & France) and October 14 (US) 2014 and is the first part of a trilogy.
