Cynic started out as a death metal band in 1987 and over the next several years sent out five demos until they finally in 1993 released their first full length album, Focus. As they found more and more influences in genres such as jazz and fusion instead of only contemporary death metal bands, they started to include bands such as Watchtower, Frank Zappa, Chick Corea and Allan Holdsworth as inspiration. In the end, Focus is a mix of all those influences and then again a completely different animal. Unfortunately, after some touring in both Europe and the states, Cynic decided to disband, due to the usual musical differences. So Focus also turned out to be the band's last album.
