Personal information

Born on: 14.04.1976


Gunnar Christian Älvestam (Born April 14, 1976 in Sweden) is a vocalist, lyricist, guitarist, bassist and drummer for several bands from Sweden. He is, however, best known as the former vocalist for the Swedish melodic death metal band Scar Symmetry. He currently performs with several bands, including Solution .45 and Miseration, and has made several guest appearances for other bands music. He is most known in the metal community for his extreme clean vocal range and his ability to death growl/scream. This uncommon talent prompted remaining members of Scar Symmetry to replace Christian with two vocalists rather than just one; Roberth Karlsson and Lars Palmqvist.

With Scar Symmetry Christian sang on the first three albums and although not the lyricist (drummer Henrik Ohlsson instead handled that role), Christian had a major part on writing the vocal melodies on all three albums. He and the band had parted ways due to creative differences and touring conflicts after the release of their third full-length album Holographic Universe.
