Cynic - New Album To Be Released In The Fall


Back in December of 2012, progressive metal band Cynic announced that they were in the studio, working on their new LP. Early working titles for tracks include: "Endlessly Bountiful", "Moon Heart Sun Head", and "True Hallucination Speak". Now Paul Masvidal confirmed that the new album is coming in the fall of 2013.

After months of silence, front man Paul Masvidal posted a statement on Facebook: "Ola Strandberg and his expert team at Strandberg Guitarworks have built my dream guitar and I am filled with gratitude. This instrument is a timeless piece of art crafted with so much love and attention to detail, it's truly unlike anything out there. This is not a guitar - it's a reinvention of the instrument as we know it. And now it can be yours. Take the leap. You will be enthralled and inspired to greater musical heights. Hear its magic on the new album from Cynic, coming Fall 2013."

"The Quaker"
Masvidal's guitars looks more weirder every year. Anyway, let's hope they get back some balls into Cynic's music this time.

Maybe doing the Death For All Tour brought the riff spirits back to him, but I guess I'm up for anything as long as it's good.

I'm down with either direction they go, but I have a feeling it's going to be more of the softer stuff.

Most likely will continue in the more melodic, proggy direction, if Carbon Based Anatomy was to be taken as an indication of their future sound. Cynic at this point are kinda like Opeth to me: I wish they'd incorporate some of the heavier stuff into their sound, but I can be just as happy if they don't.

So you're not actually a bearded shaman opening his third eye through music?

I'm always excited to hear what new sounds Paul can conjure up. Those of you hoping for a Focus part II are setting themselves up for disappointment. I watched an interview where they clearly stated a second Focus is not going to happen.

I love both old Cynic stuff and Aeon Spoke, so whichever direction they take I'm fine. Bring it on!

Yes, I think it is safe to say that Focus 2 is never going to happen because this is Cynic. I remain optimistic about the new album despite their latest EP which I had mixed feelings about.

I think that their later releases top their debut, so I'm happy. Keep 'em comin'!

Man, their newest stuff is very divisive in the Metal Storm community. I really enjoyed Traced in Air (not as much as Focus, but it was still pretty good), but Carbon Based Anatomy was a step outside of what I'm used to listening to. I'm intrigued nonetheless.

Paul's work is becoming so much more mature with each release. I can't wait to see where he takes Cynic next. No matter how heavy it is, you can always count on music that is meaningful and emotive.

Well considering the album cover is rather reminiscent of Heritage.....
