Cynic Are Back

(PR) Reunited progressive metallurgists Cynic, the Floridian forefathers of tech-minded prog metal, and the proud parents of 1993's landmark Focus, will unveil their first album in 15 years October 28th.

Due via French powerhouse Season of Mist, Traced In Air is an eight song tour de force of twisted time-signatures, mind-bending riffs and all-out metal indulgence, building upon the groundwork laid out by the formidable Focus while fortifying and updating a genre the band practically willed into existence a decade and a half ago.

Recorded in California with Down knob-twiddler Warren Riker, the current line-up features founding members Paul Masvidal (guitars/clean vocals) and Sean Reinert (drums) along with Sean Malone (bass), and newcomer Tymon Kruidenier (guitars/growls).

In other news, the band will support OPETH on their upcoming European trek in November and December, which comes on the heels of their headline performance at this year's installment of ProgPower Europe with a special extended set. A U.S. tour will follow in early 2009.
