Scar Symmetry Officially Welcome Benjamin Ellis (ex-Bloodshot Dawn) & Andreas Holma (ex-Hypocrisy) To The Band

Benjamin Ellis (ex-Bloodshot Dawn) and Andreas Holma (ex-Hypocrisy) have officially joined Scar Symmetry. You can read more about their additions in the below statement from Per Nilsson.

“It’s about time we make the official announcement:

SCAR SYMMETRY recruits former BLOODSHOT DAWN and HYPOCRISY axemen

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!

Check out this video from one of our recent shows to see our new lineup in full action!

Cheers’n’beers and much love /Per“
