Fractal Cypher

Prelude to an Impending Outcome

Self-released

November 8, 2018

Album Review By Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio

 

It's always an adventure to veer into a metal genre that is not your usual cup of tea, progressive metal. Fractal Cypher is a quintet from Montreal, Canada who formed in 2014. Prelude to an Impending Outcome is a mini-album follow up to their 2016 debut The Human Paradox. The musicians are Steven Cope (drummer), Tommy Fradettel (bassist), Simon Lavoie (vocalist), Ludovick Daoust (keyboardist) and Vincent Bruneau (guitarist).

 

The band name's meaning as quoted by Vincent Bruneau is: “Fractal is a term employed most of the time to describe a geometric shape or a design. It’s a geometric form or object that constantly evolves from its initial shape. Cypher means a secret method of writing to transmit a message or a code. We thought it would be cool to put the two concepts together, which means a repeating secret code that constantly evolves on itself, so it’s finally a message that can never be found.” The band has performed with Hammerfall, The Agonist, Heaven's Cry, Pyramid Theorem and many others.

 

“Coming Back to Life” combines celestial soaring melodies with a  supernatural vocal range that cascades in perfect symmetry. With “The Grandeur of it All” I hear a late 70s/early 80s rock influence and the guitar/keyboard licks are nothing short of badass. “Red Lady” has a smoother almost jazz fusion feel to it and reminds me of early 80s AOR. The album flows wonderfully and consistently with powerful and colorful songs. The music is spacious and well-composed and Fractal Cypher have this musicianship that really gels together.
