Biography

What’s in a name?

If you are going to focus on something, why not their unrelenting, heavy riffs, or their in-your-face live performances, their DIY record sales in the thousands, hell, even the symbolic work clothes the band wear onstage… “Truth is, if you don’t like our name, you’re probably not going to like our music. What matters is that our fans do.” declares front man Nick D, when asked about changing their name.

Drawing on it’s members’ metal, hardcore and rock influences to form a heavy, melodic riff-laden sound, Cyphilis has been impressing it’s own brand of metal on their fans since 2001. Cyphilis’ sonic style is unique, but to attempt describing it within the realm of known entities - the band combines elements of Pantera, Clutch and Prong with a touch of Hatebreed and System Of A Down. “Our songs are usually pretty straightforward” says Germ, who writes the music, “We aren’t distracted by showing off. We strive to be deliberate, tightly wound, oddly melodic and heavy as hell”.

Thousands of fans in and around the band’s Wilkes-Barre, PA hometown, and thousands more throughout the world, have connected with the band’s loud, aggressive style, thanks to the internet and impressive live performances.

“Our live act is like a kick right in the face. Period” Nick D suggests as an explanation of their fans’ loyalty at pit after pit filled show. “Our live show is to the point.” adds Deuce. A Cyphilis performance is indeed tight, powerful and purposeful - and their fans do respond.
