SCAR SYMMETRY have revealed the video for ‘Xenotaph’, taken from their latest album, “The Singularity (Phase II – Xenotaph)”. For ‘Xenotaph’, SCAR SYMMETRY enlisted the help of The Ultraterrestrial Choir – a 233-voice strong ensemble consisting of fans, friends, and family from all over the world; with each choir member multi-tracked the resulting recording consists of literally thousands of vocal tracks. Watch the video below.
Guitarist Per Nilsson comments: “‘Xenotaph’ concludes Phase II in an open-ended way, leaving the listener on a bit of a cliffhanger musically as well as lyrically. We felt strongly that ‘Xenotaph’ deserved its own music video, to bring closure to this second part of our Singularity saga and showcase the song to the fullest, and put the spotlight on our amazing, crowd-sourced choir – it is definitely not the last time we will call upon our fans to sing with us!”

When the album was first announced, band mastermind Per Nilsson commented “It brings us the utmost pleasure and pride to announce the long-awaited and much-teased ‘Phase II’ to the world along with its first single! It’s been a long time coming but I’m glad that we went the extra mile to make everything as perfect as we felt it needed to be.”
“The world is a different place in 2023 than it was in 2014 when ‘Neohumanity’ was released… We see the rise of AI before our very eyes and while we all look in awe at the wonders it can create it is easy to think of some very disturbing scenarios. In our new album, we once again explore these themes of neohumanity, artificial intelligence and the technological singularity from a dystopian point of view.”
“The AI-enhanced neo-humans are waging war upon the unmodified majority of mankind who don’t stand a chance against their technologically superior oppressors, until one day, a glimmer of salvation appears in the night sky. Almost impossible to first take in; as an utterly alien mirage, seemingly out of nowhere mysterious, giant spacecrafts silently emerge from the heavens. Travelers both intergalactic and interdimensional, these ultra-terrestrial beings who have been watching mankind for millennia seem to have decided to not sit idle while the technocalyptic cybergeddon is ravaging our planet.”
“We recently renewed our vows with Nuclear Blast and we’re very thrilled about moving on to this next phase (ahem) of our career with them by our side! The ‘Phase II’ touring cycle starts today and fittingly, we begin with a tour supporting my former employer’s Meshuggah! We hope to see you all on the road soon, but until then, here’s Scorched Quadrant!”
