Biography

After three years they signed with the small Norwegian label Angel Productions, releasing their first album Storm in 2003 which contained nine original tracks. The album quickly sold out and Code 64 began to establish a fan base across Sweden. Music reviews were generally positive, deeming it "very listenable, dynamic and easily accessible [sic] album." [2] Release Magazine likened them to VNV Nation "in their most melodic mood." [3]

Following this release they continued to work, releasing Departure in 2005 under the new label Memento Materia, who has released albums for many other well known technopop acts including the well known Swedish act Covenant.[4] Departure was received incredibly well by critics within the genre, with Release Magazine stating that it has "genre-breaking potential" with Code 64 demonstrating "fantastic programming, refined melodies, classy varied vocals and enough punch and edge to light up the universe." [5] Other reviews again reaffirmed Code 64's capabilities within the genre.[6]

Shortly after the release, Henrik Piehl left the band due to musical disagreements. On July 29, 2008, a new website was built and the addition of a new lead singer, Bjørn Marius Borg, was announced. Code 64 released their third studio album, Trialogue, on September 8, 2010.[7] The second single from the Trialogue album, "Masquerade" was released on September 15, 2010.[8] "Deviant" was released as a third digital single on August 16, 2011.
