Zero Cipher

Zero Cipher


Zero Cipher’s first demo found its way out of a south London rehearsal room onto the cover CD of Metal Hammer. Cue much touring with Skindred, Breed 77 etc., causing Rocksound magazine to declare "Zero Cipher proceed to transform it into one big dancefloor You want to shake yourself to dehydration!"


Zero Cipher formed just before the turn of the millennium. Their ethos was to stretch the boundaries of Rock and Metal by combining electronics and hardcore. describe them as "Zero Cipher is Good. Zero Cipher is the Decks. Heavy and furious, the first noisecore band to use samples". The band have a strong DIY ethic and have self produced two albums to excellent critical acclaim (released by indie labels Copro and Anticulture Records, respectively), with a third slated for release in March 2009.

“Hardcore, Metalcore, Death Metal, Hip-hop and even Ska fuelling this twisted sound.” – 8/10 Metal Hammer

“A Massive-sounding piece of work, the downtuned metal riffs bolstered by a subtle electronic undercarriage…” – KKKK Kerrang!

"Zero Cipher transform the indoor stage into one big dance floor. Their blend of psycho, off the wall metal, vocal hooks, rampant drumming and DJ/tape-loop tomfoolery make you want to shake yourself until dehydration comes a-knocking," – 8/10 Rock
