I personally can't wait, Focus was/is amazing.

For those of you who don't know of them, they are a progressive metal band, but I would recommend them to any open minded music fan. They sport both caveman-like death grunts, as well as an effect on the singing vocals that produces a robotic voice. I personally dig the big contrast in vocals. But ya, I wasn't kidding about the open mindedness part, many people don't like death grunts, and effects on vocals, and if neither of those bug you, they are also very jazzy, and aren't super brutal either. But it all ties together very well, and the result is this spacey, technical, relaxing yet exciting music, that I personally love.

But I think it'd be hard for anyone to deny the talent in the instrumentation, amazing layering, very creative, absolutely beautiful music. I just love this band. And for those of you interested, Paul Masvidal, and Sean Reinert were in Death for a while.

Tony Choy is such a great bassist, almost as good as Roger Patterson of Atheist.

Anyway, I'm hoping this would be a good album. Can't wait for its release smile.gif

Sean Reinert is simply an alien! I can't stand the voice sometimes, but I have to say that Cynic are an incredible band!

Saw Cynic live at Wacken Open Air this year, it was amazing and they told about the new album too. Looking forward to the release. They are such great musicians all of them.
