Quote from Cipher System

”When Henric and I started discussing the possibilities of me joining CIPHER SYSTEM, I’d already been a fan of their sound in general and their first album in particular, for a long time.

In fact, I still pop ‘Central Tunnel Eight’ in the car every now and then. Brilliant stuff through and through. Having that said, it’s an honor and a privilege to now be part of the next chapter of this excellent ambassador of Swedish melodic death metal.”
