    Some Reviews :
    "The album itself has no flat spots whatsoever, from the opening notes to its ending Syphor deliver one hundred percent pure metal"
    (Andy Phelps of The Metal Review themetalreview.com/albums/1967/ )

    "I can not express here enough about how much I like this band. This band is absolutely phenomenal in every aspect. If you want the best in metal, well here it is. I am more than ready for the new album. The first album is epic so America I hope you feast on both. In your face heavy metal, Thats Syphor."
    (Melissa of Our City Radio Minneapolis Metal Station's featured artist review :

    Formed in 2007 in Dublin, Ireland, Syphor has gained popularity among Metalheads throughout the world for the metal styles they play: Trash, Black, and Deathmetal. Playing Thrashmetal Riffs and performing on stage in several European Festivals have encouraged ‘Syphor’ to release their debut album, ‘Stained Glass Blasphemy,’ on February 2011. The musical quality in this new album is somewhat similar to their debut album with a lot of thrashy riffs. In ‘For What Remains,’ the band’s musicality is more mature, unique, and elaborate. You can find melodious and harmonic riffs in this album alongside common trash riffs. Many Metalheads assume the music they play is Trash Death, and as true as it may seem, the most important point is the band’s ability to combine classical and modern trash riffs with deathmetal groove or rhythm. With melody combinations played harmonically and melodiously, Syphor’s music tends to sound more complex and pleasant to the ears of those listeners seeking for quality of an artwork or creativity.

Evolved in time,
and the stories told,
the myths of angels hunting demons,
Hell awaiting us below,
the followers erupt corrupted in their
parlor masquerade, no longer captive servants
prisoners of faith,

Slipped into the darkness, the tainted spirits faint,
they follow in disgrace, this morning black parade,
pressed against the alter, as the silhouette in dreams,
rest beneath the pulpit sermon hopeless and obscene,

Contorted, distorting heresy,
for a noble crusade, with a viral plague,
spreading like disease,
a killing spree,..

To the gallows crawl the savior lord,
admonishing his throne,
in the battle drawn, creations bound
event horizons dawn

Protesting mercy,
punishment for all the lies,
leniency denied

Suffer in silence,
you awaken bound
beneath a desert sun,
no faithful flock
or resurrection
these are the end of days
of autocracy,
the final shards of faith,
torn from their hearts, we’re free

beneath the embers of desire
the bellows blow hell fire,
the reaper stokes the flames,
to the front row run,
holy pulpits and effigies burn,
and by the hands of the fallen cold,
hypocrites by the collar thrown,
into the nightshade thorns,
holy pulpits and effigies burn,
dim the lights from their false gods eyes,
blackened, blind to their demise,
from the angel stained hammer run,
holy pulpits and effigies burn.
