I knew it was just a matter of time before managed to get a sitar in there.

Tight as usual, and promises a tad more aggression than Re-Traced. That said, I hope to god they're not ditching Tymon's growls.

Seems fall 11 is getting crowded in terms of high-profile releases.

Tymon isn't in the band anymore.

Never cared about Cynic even a little bit but I actually kinda liked that little teaser. I imagine I'd go right back to not caring if I ever listened to the whole album though, which is probably something I'll never do lol.

Fuck.

I've been kinda out of the loop since Re-Traced, which I liked, but didn't love (Traced in Air is one of my all time faves). Sad to hear he's gone. He was the perfect replacement for the lost growls, I didn't actually know they'd switched him at first.

Hopefully this EP is more along the lines of Wheels Within Wheels than the other tracks off of re-traced.

They technically didn't replace him. The official Cynic line up now is just Paul Masvidal and Sean Reinert.

I think you misread me. When I talked about replacement I was referring to Tymon replacing Tony Teegarden as death metal vocalist, and that I didn't actually notice from his vocals that it wasn't Tony anymore.

Besides that, Tymon's solo in The Unknown Guest might be my favorite not-Adrian Smith-solo ever.

So it's not taking them like another decade before they release something?

Sounds like it'll be boring as fuck just like Traced In Air was.

It's definitely very Cynic. And while I miss the growling, I was actually pleasantly surprised. Gives a much better impression than the teaser.

Reinert is his awesome self, and the track is a lot more energetic than Re-Traced, and towards the end gets pretty heavy, in a soft kind of way. The groove is simple, but the layered shit ontop of it keeps things interesting. I was afraid it'd be pure scifi wankery, but things are looking good.

And R_Z, work your way back from Re-Traced.
