Cypher16

Bio

Cypher16 are a young, innovative and refreshingly original rock band who harness metal and a hint of industrial to create a truly massive sound. The band have toured in seventeen countries including multiple tours of China and India, playing shows and festivals with the likes of Amaranthe, Fear Factory, Children Of Bodom, Behemoth, Lamb Of God and Slayer.

The 'Determine' EP was released in April 2013 by Metal Hammer Magazine and has received further rave reviews, with the debut album expected early 2014. Cypher16 have recently played at this year's Bloodstock Festival, featuring SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD,  ANTHRAX and many more.

2014 saw 'The March Of Nations' run, which covered ten countries around the world (including China), and numerous festivals such as HAMMERFEST (Soilwork/Kreator/Overkill), TRONDHEIM METAL FEST (Behemoth/Devin Townsend/At The Gates) and MIDI FESTIVAL (Fear Factory/Wayne Static). The band also hit the studio to record the long awaited debut album, with renowned producer Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead/ Bullet For My Valentine/ Funeral For A Friend).

In February 2015 Cypher16 joined AMARANTHE on a tour which included shows in Sweden, Finland and Estonia. This was shortly followed up by a monster 17-date second tour in CHINA, including festivals headlined by The Scorpions and Killswitch Engage. 

In October 2015, the band released the debut album ‘The Great Surveyor’, produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Bullet For My Valentine, Bring Me The Horizon). METAL HAMMER MAGAZINE'S editor Alex Milas called it:

POWERPLAY MAGAZINE gave the record 10/10 and said Cypher16 are:

"...undoubtedly one of the most exciting young acts in Britain right now...Cypher16 look set to drop one of the most extraordinary releases of the year".
