Interview

Although attaining underground notoriety and rave reviews for their debut album Central Tunnel Eight (2004), Cipher System is not a household name within the sphere of melodic death metal – not yet. What was a first full length shot at their very own take on progressive melodic death, lethally infused with electronics, has now grown into relentless, remorseless mechanical perfection – Communicate the Storms.
By no means a newcomer in the scene even in 2004, Cipher System was formed as Eternal Grief in 1996, at a time when the famed Gothenburg sound was at its peak, with the young band rising from the fertile ground of the classics of its time.
They first reached the ears of the underground in 2001 with their promo demo “Eyecon”, which gave them some proper attention – and with their next demo they caught the attention of Lifeforce Records, who released the three songs on a split CD with fellow Swedish metallers By Night.
In may 2004 the time had finally come to enter the legendary Studio Fredman to record 10 songs for what would be an unsuspecting world’s first taste of the utter brutality and serene harmony that Cipher System produces – an album that sounds remarkably fresh even 7 years later, a rare thing in times when a year old album easily becomes stale.
15 years after the birth of the band, Cipher System returns with what has to be described as a masterpiece in a genre where innovation has become sparse, putting their murderous machinations on public display, forged with fearsome skill and precision – Communicate the Storm. Packed in the rapturous art of a true genius of darkened visuals, Seth Siro Anton (Soilwork, Paradise Lost, SepticFlesh), and with a mix once again stemming from the hallowed grounds of Studio Fredman, this colossus of an album is sure to send tremors throughout the scene when it hits the street in October 2011!

Fan review

Die schwedischen CIPHER SYSTEM lieferten einst mit »Central Tunnel Eight« eines der hoffnungsvollsten Alben im melodischen Death Metal ab und waren drauf und dran, nach den Sternen zu Greifen. Einige Jahre später hat sich viel getan in der Branche und auch bei CIPHER SYSTEM ist einiges neu, wenn auch nicht alles. Das Core-Element ist einer progressiveren Herangehensweise gewichen und mit Karl Obbel hat man zudem einen neuen Mann am Mikro. Das Wechseln zwischen klarem und gebrülltem Gesang erinnert zeitweise an die genialen SCAR SYMMETRY und auch sonst sind CIPHER SYSTEM nicht so dramatisch weit weg vom Sound ihrer Landsleute. Metallisch, progressiv, modern – was diese Schlagworte bündig zusammenfassen entfaltet sich beim Hören von »Communicate The Storms« mehr und mehr, wächst zu herrlicher Größe heran und überwältigt einen mit seinen schamlos genialen Melodien. Das fantastische '7 Inch Cut' überzeugt mit seinen wunderbaren Refrain während „Project Life Collaps“ schön aggressiv dahinjagt. Über allen Songs thront der epische Gesang, untermalt von Keyboardpassagen und einem sensationellen Drumgewitter. Die Wartezeit hat sich gelohnt, »Communicate The Storms« ist eine herausragende Scheibe und wird den Schweden hoffentlich den verdienten Erfolg bescheren.
