Cynic - To Record New Album


American iconic death metal band CYNIC's MySpace has been updated with the following press release:

Quality technical metal connoisseurs and open-minded music-lovers in general will be delighted to hear that Florida's legendary Cynic have returned to creative power after a successful European reunion tour in the summer of 2007 and will soon be recording a new album, their second after 1993's genre-shattering Focus debut.

Cynic founding members Paul Masvidal (Guitars / Vocals) and Sean Reinert (Drums), who both gained reputation and praise while performing alongside Chuck Schuldiner and Death in the recording and touring line-up for the milestone album "Human", are currently in Sanford, Florida, working on the mix for three new demo tracks together with producer Jason Suecof at his own Audiohammer Studios. The three new tracks are entitled 'Integral Birth', 'Evolutionary Sleeper' and 'Adam's Murmur' but Masvidal and Reinert have already written a full album's worth of new material and the band will use the demo to begin talks with record companies about a 2008 release.

Masvidal comments, "We're amazed that we're here again, and that is a testament to the unpredictable beauty of the creative process. We received so much inspiration during last summer's reunion tour that a flood of new material has since poured out of us. There must be a default metal root in us from childhood that insists on being watered and loved, so we're just trying to keep up with ourselves — the Cynic sirens are screaming inside and won't let up! Our policy has always been about surrendering to what feels most organic and staying in the flow. To put it mildly, this last year has been a creatively abundant and productive period. We're intoxicated about now and the future."

More news on Cynic's recording and touring plans will soon be announced, and a new website will soon be launched at their official website.

So this is official then? If it is so, I guess this is great news for all the fans of this amazing band! If the whole album is as good as the new song they played at Hellfest (Evolutionary Sleeper), it's going to be one of 2008's highlights

I'd rather prefer they wouldn't do it. Somehow I'm feeling a bit sceptical, hope they won't screw up their legacy. Then again, the one new song that I've heard (the one they also played on Hellfest) was pretty cool, so maybe I'm a bit too pessimistic...

This is very exciting news, Focus is one of my favourite albums...'robotic' voice and all I haven't heard the new song that has been mentioned, but I for one am not at all worried that this new material will mess with their legacy, this is Cynic after all. We haven't heard anything substandard from them yet, so why doubt them now? Big news indeed!!

I'm a little skeptic about this album, Focus was such a great album, I'm not sure if they'll be able to top it. Besides, without Sean Malone it isn't going to be the same.

After a long slumber, Cynic has awaken to work on a new album. Let's just hope it's as good as their old material.

Yes, I also hope that they do not attempt to make "Focus II" because that mindset will get them nowhere. The robotic voice worked for that album because they didn't O.D. on it's uniqueness, and kept it in check with the growls. That new song sounds good, but they definitely need a new vocal patch to keep it fresh...

This is so incredible in so many ways, for so many people... it's a legendary 1 album band that returns, few times this shit happens. I didn't like Focus so much, but still is great news.

What's wrong with the robotic vocals? I personally enjoyed them...however, I listened to Evolutionary Sleeper and there were no robotic vocals on it...I just knew that Cynic were going to release a new album...about damned time as everyone has already said already...

I don't think they'll reach the class/level that is Focus. I'll check it out anyway, just to see what they can come up with

This is awesome news. Looking forward to their music. Well to expect them to deliver the muscianship of what they did with Focus would be a drave disappointment. I mean, how would it ever be, it'll either be better than "Focus" or god forbid worse. Whatever it will be, I will surely pick up the CD no matter when it comes. I would wait a life time for Lykathea's CD, I could certainly give Cynic's new CD a good chance before dismissing it looking at Focus.

This is the only version of the song I have heard, with the robotic vocals. What version did you hear?
I personally like the robotic vocals, but I don't enjoy it as much by itself. I liked the contrast of the opposing vocals on Focus...
I still don't understand how Paul changes the pitch of his robotic voice when playing live, is it some sort of frequency patch?

I suppose it will be (a lot) different from Focus, because they have evolved musically and as persons too. Will it feature Reinert and Masvidal only or will there be any other old or new members working on new album?
