CypherSeer is a metal band that emerged from central New Jersey in early 2003. Initially known as Malakis Reign, they quickly created a buzz with their unique brand of metal in the vein of bands such as - Mercenary, RainTime, Scar Symmetry, Symphony X, and many more. Whether on their recordings or during live shows, CypherSeer always pushes the envelope in order to keep the experience fresh and their fans engaged. The history of CypherSeer has included a lot of big names in the metal industry such as James Rivera (Helstar, Vicious Rumors) and Mike LePond (Symphony X). However, the most notable name is producer extraordinaire Fredrik Nordstrom (InFlames, Soilwork, Dark Tranquillity, At The Gates, Etc). Nordstrom’s magic can be heard on "Awakening Day", CypherSeer’s debut album, and soon on "Blood for New Life", CypherSeer's newest album.
During the winter of 2008, the rebuilding of the band process began with the search for a new vocalist. The spot was quickly filled by Zeno Rodrigo, a powerful singer whose voice would redefine the sound of CypherSeer. With the focal point of the band accounted for, auditions continued for the remainder of the rhythm section. In the end, drummer Lee Corrado and bassist Kristian Lolo were the two musicians selected to fill the roster, and CypherSeer was reborn, stronger than ever.
Now, armed with an improved line-up, CypherSeer returns with the recording of their sophomore album, "Blood For New Life". With Fredrik Nordstrom once again behind the mixing board, the new album brings a more powerful and ambitious album in comparison to the debut album.
