Nuclear Blast Records has announced the signing of the Swedish futuristic and extreme metal act CIPHER SYSTEM.

15 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 9.

Commented the band: "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 six months of recording and around two 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 '90s, 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!"

CIPHER SYSTEM's debut album, "Central Tunnel Eight", came out in November 2004 through Lifeforce Records.
