Biography

(1980 – present)

There are three artists called Cynic.

1. Formed in Florida, United States in 1987, Cynic is a band that recorded a few demos before moving to a highly complex form of influenced / , manifested in their seminal album, 1993’s Focus, which for over a decade was the band’s only official release.

Cynic disbanded in 1994 due to artistic differences while working on their second album, but regrouped in 2007 to perform a series of shows. The reunion was successful, with the group also performing a new song, entitled Evolutionary Sleeper, a composition in the unique style of Focus. This was a harbinger of things to come, as the group recorded two additional tracks, Integral Birth and Adam’s Murmur and then signed a contract with Season of Mist for two albums. Their second album, Traced in Air, was released on November 17, 2008 in Europe and November 25, 2008 in North America.

They released Re-Traced, a collection of re-workings of songs off Traced in Air, in 2010. This album features a different style that has been described as “space science fiction prog-folk”. The album also includes the new track Wheels Within Wheels, which Cynic felt fit better on this album than Traced in Air.

    The incredibly averse reactions to this album are so weird. I thought it was pretty nice. They're not a metal band anymore, and haven't been one for a while. Get over it.

    Fuck it. I love this album. Maybe it's because I don't mind the nonsense lyrics and focus mostly on Reinert doing his thing

    Didn't expect something different, didn't expect it to be good either.

    kindly bent is 8.5/10 if anyone expected something different from cynic in 2014, they're dumb

    Oh yeah I forgot I started talking shit about Nile here. Let's all begin a Kollias worship thread here. Hey, remember that song when he played the generic blast beat and fill combination?

    But honestly if you think I'm trolling, you're mistaken. Trolling is behaviour used solely to get a rise out of people. I'm just giving my honest opinions of the new album. Worse than holes in socks.
