CypherSeer Working On New Album

CypherSeer is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to the last release "Origins." Guitarist Sergio Ribiero has checked in with an update on the band's progress:

"First order of business - CypherSeer would like to announce that for the next record, Martin Brändström from the band Dark Tranquillity, will be laying down all the keyboard work. After months searching and speaking with some of the industry's best and most respected keyboardists, Martin just absolutely blew us away with his ideas and playing. We felt an immediate connection and we felt his keyboard style would fit our music the best, since we are aiming for a more updated overall sound on the up-coming record.

"Speaking of our new record... We are currently recording demos to be shipped out for editing, and soon after that, the actual recording will begin. As of right now the projected date for the start of recording is mid January. In terms of the actual songs, we feel that we are getting ever-closer to the sound that defines CypherSeer. We were very meticulous and made sure all the songs were to their absolute potential before we started demoing them. More...

CypherSeer Premieres New Song, "Red Rain," Online

Metalunderground.com presents the premiere of CypherSeer's "Red Rain," which can be streamed below. The song is off CypherSeer's upcoming new album, "Origins," which is their follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut "Awakening Day." "Origins" is due out on April 12th via Nightmare Records. The album was edited and mixed by Fredrik Nordstrom (In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Dream Evil).

Guitarist Sergio Ribeiro describes the meaning behind "Red Rain":

"Red Rain is our ode to metal...It was one of those songs that was written out of pure influence and instinct. The lyrical content in Red Rain, keeping with the theme in "Origins", speaks of a new metal generation fighting to keep the metal flame burning strong, passed down from our predecessors. We love to play this song live 'cause everyone just goes nuts during the sing-along chorus."

Here is the complete "Origins" tracklisting:

1. Bloodline
2. The Curse
3. Dying Force
4. Faith Renounced
5. Aftermass
6. From the Womb
7. Soul Sacrifice
8. Red Rain
9. Infinite Trance
10. Lost, Plagued and Redefined
11. As I Embrace the End

The band also recently release a music video for the album's first single, "Dying Force," which can be seen below.

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 (In Flames, Soilwork, Dark Tranquillity, At The Gates, Etc). Nordstrom’s magic can be heard on "Awakening Day", CypherSeer’s debut 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. Drummer Lee Corrado and bassist Kristian Lolo were also selected to fill the roster, and CypherSeer was reborn.

Cypher Seer Premiers "Dying Force" Video

Noisecreep.com is hosting Cypher Seer's new video for the song "Dying Force." The song is taken from the band's soon to be released album "Origins." You can check out the video clip below.

Band founder Sergio Ribeiro commented on the video:

"The song Dying Force is about humanity's self indulgence, which ultimately will lead us to self destruction. In the video we wanted to convey that message by showing a young woman losing something so precious that everyone seems to take for granted - our eyesight. Later in the video she regains her vision, by the hands of 'The Creator', as a second opportunity to lead a more humble and caring life, but eventually she falls back to old habits and loses her sight for good.

"The video's concept, direction and shooting was a joint effort by Marco Bobadilla and Michael Goncalves with some direction from us. The video was shot at an abandoned children's psych ward in Staten Island, NY - although it doesn't show, the live performance portion of the video was shot in blaring heat, and the acting part of the video was shot in frigid cold."
