Nuclear Blast Records signs Cipher System
Official press release: Nuclear Blast Records is happy to announce the signing of the Swedish futuristic and extreme metal act Cipher System. Fifteen 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 on September, 9th 2011! The band adds: "When you have been in this business as long as we have, you take everything with a bit of 'this will never happen, but it would be great if it did' attitude. That is how we protect ourselves from not being broken down by all setbacks. So when we finished mixing 'Communicate The Storms' we thought we had an great album in our hands, but after 6 months of recording and around 2 years of writing it, we didn't really knew for sure. But when we got contacted by Nuclear Blast we knew that we were on to something. It's a true honor to be signed to the label that gave us 'Storm Of The Light's Bane', 'Jester Race', 'Enthrone Darkness Triumphant' to name a few. Nuclear Blast was our goal and dream label when we started playing in the 90's, and we have finally found our way home. We want to thank all the people, friends and fans all around the world for the support! Let's race to the top!" "Communicate The Storm" will be released on September, 9th.
