The US band is finally presenting an official release of their famed and reverently discussed Portal tapes! After splitting up, Cynic members Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert and Jason Gobel formed the short-lived project Portal together with Chris Kringel on bass and stunning vocalist Aruna Abrams. Aruna’s beautiful and haunting voice combined with Paul’s clean vocals is the perfect fit for these laid back and subtle songs that have more in common with the sound of Porcupine Tree and The Gathering than their original Progressive Death Metal roots. This genre was shaped by Cynic’s full-length debut “Focus” (1993). Yet since their reunion in 2006, Cynic have moved via the Progressive Metal of their highly acclaimed second album “Traced in Air” (2008) towards ever more open soundscapes combining many stylistic influences. With “The Portal Tapes” the missing link in Cynic’s evolution is now available.

"Carbon-Based Anatomy" is a fully-realized piece of art that raises consciousness and thrills with feats of daring musicality. Legendary progressive music-makers Cynic, redefine themselves once again with a 6-song EP that combines diverse influences from 70s-inspired Prog Rock to cutting-edge Metal, tribal folk and futuristic alien shapes and sounds.

"Re-Traced" EP features 4 songs from Cynic's successful comeback album "Traced in Air" re-recorded and re-traced. These exciting numbers are re-born part sci-fi, Folk, prog, psychedelic and to some degree more layered thatn their original versons.

When the legendary US band announced their reunion in 2007, all hell broke loose: a myriad of offers for festivals and tours immediately arrived on their desk and their dedicated fans as well as the press sang their praises. An obvious reaction for anybody versed in the history of Progressive Death Metal. When guitarist Paul Masvidal and drummer Sean Reinert founded Cynic in 1987, they had more in mind than just another brutal sound. Extreme Metal riffing was fused with Jazz and Progressive Rock gaining the Americans recognition far beyond the "scene". Their debut and until now only album "Focus" (1993) soon became a sought after cult classic. Now Cynic come back stronger than ever: "Traced in Air" witnesses the band ascending to an even higher spiritual level of musicianship…

When one thinks about progressive rock, it's easy to imagine it as an almost academic pursuit with groups of men, armed with degrees in composition and Chapman sticks, trying to convert the secret math that rules the universe into musical notation. Playing against this seeming lack of approachability, Cynic deliver Kindly Bent to Free Us, an album that, while most definitely in the realm of prog rock, has the kind of open, unpretentious air that makes Rush such an easy-to-love band. Though Cynic continue to stray further from their heavy metal beginnings, they still haven't abandoned them, fusing layers of melody and jazzy chord progressions with searing, distorted guitar work, perfectly combining both sounds without letting one distract from the other…

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.

Есть группы, которые выпускают альбомы раз в год, есть такие, которые только раз в пять лет, а есть Cynic. Их дебютный и единственный альбом "Focus" вышел в далёком 1993-ем. С тех пор он обрёл статус современной классики и до сих пор является одной из лучших и оригинальных работ в своём стиле. С тех пор прошло ни много, ни мало 15 лет, и вот "Cynic-и" решили вдруг устроить реюнион и записали второй за всю свою историю альбом.
