A genuinely fearless combination of metal, pop, rock, and the then-nü-biquitious turntables, brought south londoners Zero Cipher to the attention of Metal Hammer magazine in 2002, when their homemade demo found its way onto the cover of the february issue.
The ensuining year saw Zero Cipher cut their teeth across the UK toilet circuit, earning endorsements from Marshall Amps and winning ‘Best Unsigned Band’ from Rancid News, ‘Best British Band’ from Amplify This, and placing in Kerrang’s ‘Best Unsigned Band’ reader poll.
Record company attention wasn’t far behind, but the incredible shrinking offers accompanied by some label advances led to a tenacious ‘fuck you’ approach, which the band has kept to this day.
Choosing to work with UK indie, Copro Records, home to Medulla Nocte and Snub (whose vocalists had both guested on the 2001 demo), Zero Cipher put together a concept album of self recorded demo tracks, in-jokes and ambient noise, including a donation from the labels then-flagship (and much missed) band, earthtone9. Critical acclaim was universal and 2003 saw the band play with One Minute Silence, Skindred, Kerrang’s Scumfest, Uxfest and many more.
Ryan Harris of Fony, recently off tour with Life of Agony (a tour Zero Cipher were themselves unable to accept due to the financial restraint of no official label), joined, after the band changed rhythm section mid-tour in 2004. Filling the drum stool with a permanent member would take much longer…
Anticulture records stepped up, and released ‘Diary of a Sadist’ on halloween 2005. European touring followed along with support slots to Dry Kill Logic, Hed(PE), and festival appearances such as Hard Rock Hell with Cradle of Filth. Fatherhood, day jobs, depression and insolvency took their toll. Without a penny spent on advertising or tour support, critical acclaim from the major and independent rock press was nevertheless highly positive, but the relationship with the label deteriorated rapidly, ending with Zero Cipher buying the remaining stock and re-issuing the album themselves in 2007.
This 3rd edition comes complete with five bonus tracks - four new songs from the Diary recording sessions, and an Acoustic version of lead single ''Its no Secret'' recorded for a UK FM radio station session.
