This album really impressed me in the minute I pushed play on my Stereo; Cynic the King without Crown, Cynic is like H.P Lovecraft or Vincent van Gogh, artists that public worshiped only after they died. Cynic released only one Full Length and a lot of Demos, nowadays people is hungry to get their material, fortunately I got Focus, so let's talk about this awesome album.

Rating: 10 A timeless album. The melodic elements throughout the album tie in brilliantly with the fercity of the death metal influences. I cannot wait for their new album\m/

I don't find this to be ferocious at all, the vocals and down-tuned guitar seem pointless.

Well I say ferocious in comparison to the lighter elements of the album.

  Mindblowing album. The atmosphere here stands out the most for me.

Rating: 10 Among my top 3 favorite metal albums, such a flawless mix of psychedelic aesthetics and sci-fi oriented prog metal.

Rating: 10 One of the greatest albums ever - listening to it feels like floating in an ocean of pure beauty. Unique and nearly impossible to imitate, there will most likely never be another of its kind.
