Innovative British metallers Cypher16 have unveiled the first song and video, “Break,” from their upcoming second full-length album, It's A Long Way Back (From This Road).
The video, which features guest bassist Vishal “V” Khetia from Heart of a Coward, is available today, exclusively via Metal Injection at https://metalinjection.net/video/cypher16-teams-with-heart-of-a-coward-bassist-in-new-song-break.
Says guitarist/vocalist Jack Doolan:-
“'Break' is a focus on the struggle and downward spiral of addiction, and asks the question: ‘How do you break away from something that has held you in chains for your entire life?’ The song also looks at other people with the same problems, those who we can see fading away before our very eyes.”
The lyrical theme of “Break” has also taken on an unplanned relevance in the current climate, providing a message of hope during this trying time.
“The faster section propels the song into a different sphere - one of hope, resilience and perseverance. The music is for everyone suffering, and we hope that it will send a message to people, letting them know that they aren't alone, and that whatever their demons are, there's a way to push through to the other side. I hope it resonates with people, especially with the current situation that we're all going through together!”
“Break” was produced by Jakob Herrmann (Machine Head) at Top Floor Studios in Sweden, mixed by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat) at Hansen Studios in Denmark and mastered by Sean Magee (The Beatles) at Abbey Road Studios in England.
The “Break” digital single is available at https://cypher16.bigcartel.com/product/break-digital-single.
A refreshingly original rock band, Cypher16 harnesses metal with a hint of modern industrial to create a truly massive sound. The band’s debut album, The Great Surveyor, was released in October 2015 to rave reviews. Cypher16 has toured in 17 countries, including multiple tours of America, China and India, playing shows and festivals with the top names in metal.
Cypher16 is also known for epic music videos, filmed at famous landmarks such as Battersea Power Station (“Lonely Road”) and The Natural History Museum (“Open the Dark Door”), where the band was given unprecedented access for an entire night, in 2017.

Indian metal veterans Demonic Resurrection have announced the release of their fifth full length studio album and launched a pledge music campaign in support of the release.
The band have announced no details for the record except a tentative release date in Feb 2017. Demonstealer commented:-
"More than money being a motivation, for us the pledge campaign was launched to share this experience with our fans before anyone else. I believe the fan-artist relationship is closer than ever and platforms like pledge music bypass the social media giants like Facebook and Twitter and let you interact with fans 1 on 1. So for us this campaign is about sharing the album name, tracklist, artwork, songs etc with the fans before anyone else. So we're really excited to embark on this journey. At this point we don't have any release details for how the album is released after the campaign but we are in talks with some labels, so fingers crossed."
