Originally operating under the moniker Allysonhymn (pronounced ”all-eyes-on-him”), Christian rockers Decyfer Down create a wall of sound with a message. Formed in 2002 around the talents of drummer Josh Oliver, vocalist/bassist Caleb Oliver, and guitarists Brandon Mills and Chris Clonts, the band’s melodic and hard-driving debut, End of Grey, arrived on Sony Records in June 2006. Caleb Oliver left the lineup shortly thereafter, and former Fighting Instinct vocalist T.J. Harris enlisted in his place.
Returning in 2009 with the sophomore effort Crash, Decyfer Down garnered more support from independent Christian rock radio. Additionally, the album’s title track was featured in the pay-per-view broadcast of WrestleMania XXV, thus exposing the band’s music to a wider audience.
