Scar Symmetry adds new guitarist, bassist
Swedish metal band Scar Symmetry has announced the addition of guitarist Benjamin Ellis (ex-Bloodshot Dawn) and bassist Andreas Holma (ex-Hypocrisy) to its lineup. Here's the official word:
"We are stoked to announce the addition of Benjamin Ellis on guitar and Andreas Holma on bass to our official lineup! Benjamin Ellis (ex-Bloodshot Dawn) is a British guitar virtuoso who filled in for me a couple of years ago when I had to sit out an East European tour, and has played alongside me on tour since. Ridiculous player and a total sweetheart! "Andreas Holma is mostly known as a guitar player - he used to play for Hypocrisy but also did short stints as a touring guitarist for Pain and Soilwork - though the bass guitar is his main instrument and we are excited to pull him back into the spotlight after some years away from the scene. Incredible musician and a gentle soul!"
