The band started in late 1995 with JOHAN & ANDREAS on guitars, PONTUS on drums and HENRIC on bass. The desperate search for a singer haunted the band. BUT, he was found in 1997 and his name was DANI.
After some months of rehearsing, CIPHER SYSTEM (back in those days, known as ETERNAL GRIEF) entered studio "Fullmoon" for their first recording. The "Path of Delight"-demo was the result. They also did a video for the titlesong on this demo. Directed by ALEX HANSSON (SOILWORK´S Rejection Role and IN FLAMES´ Trigger) After a while they recived contracts from various labels but didn´t sign with any of them due to shitty agreements! In the end of ´99 CIPHER SYSTEM entered Studio Fredman ». They recorded the "Raped by Chaos" demo. Mixed by Anders Fridén (In Flames). This one was not well-produced and it was shortly left to collect dust... Though the titlesong is HEAVY as hell! (Just so You know) After this recording, guitarist Andreas and singer Dani left the band. In the year 2000 CIPHER SYSTEM was in a vacuum. Nothing really happened and alot of things started to fuck everything up; the record lable situation and the lack of members. It wasn´t until spring ´01 things started to move again. They recruted an "electronics department" instead of a new guitarist. The executive of this department was PETER. Peter later helped talk Dani in to coming back to the band again.
CIPHER SYSTEM started to rehearse more and created songs as: "Life Surrounds", "In Perfection" and "24 hours Left" Johan wanted to focus on the musicprocess so Henric started to write the lyrics. After this recording the band changed their name to which today still is: CIPHER SYSTEM In 2002 CIPHER SYSTEM did alot of things; They recorded Eyecon whitch did receive great response from all over the world! Labels showed interest but nothing was signed. CIPHER SYSTEM also got a new guitarist: MAGNUS ÖHLANDER. A young hillbilly from the "Mainland". In march ´03 CIPHER SYSTEM went back to Studio Fullmoon (Bestial Mockery, Grief of Emerald, Obligatorisk Tortyr) to record some new songs: "SufferStream", "What if" and "Receive, Retrive and Escalate". These songs resulted in the demo "Promo 2003". June 2003: CIPHER SYSTEM got themselves a manager and in June of 2004 Life Force records » will release a split CD with CIPHER SYSTEM and By Night ».
