- BIOGRAPHY -

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, and have released one album and three EPs, garnering significant radio, press and hundreds of thousands of streams / views worldwide.

The band are excited to announce the completion of their second album, which was finished at Abbey Road Studios in London in December 2019. Three brand new 2020 singles are out now, with further singles and album to follow: www.cypher16.net

Read on to delve into the history and discography of Cypher16:

Cypher16's debut EP 'Determine' was released in April 2013 by Metal Hammer Magazine and has received further rave reviews in anticipation of the debut album, supported by their inaugural performance at 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 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 their 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:
“Crushing joy from one of metal’s truly pioneering bands”

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".

In 2016 the band performed again at HAMMERFEST 2016, with Cradle of Filth, Exodus and many more. After this they returned to headline The Underworld in London, before heading out on tour with AMARANTHE once more, this time to Norway. After that a London support with SOILWORK before the band announced they would head to the USA and CANADA for a 24-date supporting AMARANTHE.

After touring in the US and CANADA in 2017 with AMARANTHE, Cypher16 released the long-awaited video for 'Open The Dark Door'. The video was filmed at the Natural History Museum in London (the only band who have ever been allowed to film such a video at the museum), achieving over 100,000 views to date and climbing.

In 2018 the band played their biggest headline show to date, at London's Islington Academy and then travelled to Gothenburg, Sweden to begin recording the follow up to their debut album. Working with Jakob Herrmann (Machine Head / Anthrax), the album was mixed by Jacob Hasen (Volbeat) in Ribe, Denmark, and mastered at Abbey Road in London, England in 2019.

BREAK – The first single from their long awaited second album was released April 2020, followed by ‘Push Through The Water’ in June, and album title-track ‘It’s A Long Way Back (From This Road) in September, with further singles and their second album to follow.

Metal Hammer Magazine - Stephen Hill

"Cypher16 have a career most bands would be satisfied with after releasing four or five albums on an established label... they might be new to you, but they’ve nothing to prove to anyone"

PowerPlay Magazine - Glenn Butler (Reviewing The Underworld, London)

"What an incredible show from this amazingly talented quartet. Cypher16 made the evening look easy, yet it is their constant hard work, determination and bucket-loads of talent that has afforded them this luxury and everyone who was at this gig could testify to this fact"
