Sure, In Flames is probably selling tons of copies of A Sense of Purpose , but I think they had to cheapen and compromise their sound to do it. Scar Symmetry , on the other hand, took the initial seed planted by In Flames and Soilwork — namely, adding clean, poppy choruses into melodic death — and has creatively left both bands far, far behind.

Whether Scar Symmetry chooses to advance their sound away from the tried and true formula which they play now is solely up to the band members, but for now all I can tell you is that Holographic Universe was an extremely pleasant surprise and an album I will most certainly be listening to a lot.
