Bassist Henric Carlsson of Swedish progressive metallers CIPHER SYSTEM has issued the following update:
"CIPHER SYSTEM are in a little bit of trouble. I had a chat with Andreas Solveström [vocals] and he doesn't have time to focus on CIPHER SYSTEM no more. Being in a band is something you either do 100% or not, and Andreas wanted to focus more on his new band AMARANTHE and his old band WITHIN Y so we understand his choice and respect it.
"Not too much for us to do then. We are now officially searching for a new singer.
"We would love to have a guy from Sweden that could reharsal in the Gothenburg area. As we don't make any big money on this band, we apreciate you to be serious, professional and really love to play music just as much as we do. The guy we search for should be able to handle both clean vocals and screems.
"We are not going to change our style, just that we have had some clean vocals in the past and we aim to have some in the future it would be great to have some one that could handle this without any problems.
"Right now we have around 10 songs finished and more on the way, so we are more then eager to get started with the recording of our upcoming album so that we could start get some shows lined up again!"
CIPHER SYSTEM's critically acclaimed debut album, "Central Tunnel Eight", came out in November 2004 through Lifeforce Records.
