Cipher System: Central Tunnel Eight

Cipher System comes real close to blowing the shingles off the Cape Cod and sending an entire trailer park straight from Omaha to Lake Charles but in the end doesn't really succeed. Part of the problem may be that the band tries too hard to adhere to the aesthetic set forth by its heroes Dark Tranquility and In Flames. At a certain point you begin to why the band didn't strive for something a little more original, work just a little bit harder at have some songs that had a clear presence of the outfit's flesh and blood. Cipher System isn't all that bad, understand, and if you're especially new to metal, hungry for all the bands you can get your hands on, then OK. But those whose palettes are a little more developed might pine more for something that's a little more Frank Lloyd Wright than a Sears catalogue prefab. Oh, and what's with that New Age outro?
