11:33 - God Buster 鬼 Cohol's new album is really excellent. The guy wrote a review at Metal Temple had the guts to write a black metal review at the same time claiming he was not familiar with some kinds of black metal genres...so stupid

11:07 - Timmeh Wish I could smoke up, but going clean for a possible employment drug test. Can take up to 30 days to exit your system, the fact you can be fired for something you took 30 days ago is insanity.

I still have to review Design The Skyline for the upcoming Lords Of Metal, that will give them a reason to further whinge and whine A truly horrendous album released on the once good Victory Records label.
'Traced in Air' consists of many different layers, and in my view, listening to it more than twice is necessary to pick it apart and give your final 'judgement'. Naturally, tthis album is certainly not to everyone's tastes. There are those who despise the band's excessive use of keyboards and uplifitng melodies, which prove to be a highlight for me. I will admit that i am a big cynic fan, but 'Traced in air' is one of those albums you really have to listen to without distractions. And even then you may or may not like it. It just depends on personal taste i guess. Anyway, i believe cynic are going to get more melodic with everything they release in the future. 'Carbon-based anatomy' is a relatively brave starting point for that path...
I really like this album. It sounds soft and airy but that's appropriate given the themes they chose for their lyrics. Besides this sound is what makes them quite different from many other progressive metal bands and gives them individuality.
And those who buy the CD will get as a bonus impressive artwork made by Robert Venosa which compliments the music really well.
Interesting how the staff is picking on this whereas the atmosphere itself on TiA is just a tiny bit lighter than on Focus. A bit less intense, less sophisticated, but feels more earthly an calming than the precursor. Back then when this came out I also labelled this as a disappointment, but with time I came to like it pretty much.
