Video Premiere: Cynic – The Lion’s Roar
Prog is proud to present the European premiere of Cynic’s new lyric video – view The Lion’s Roar below.
It’s taken from Kindly Bent To Free Us, the long-awaited second album since their 2007 reunion – and their third overall – which will be released on February 14 via Season Of Mist.
The label reports: “Instead of simply repeating their successful formula, Cynic dare to expand their horizon into even more complex soundscapes that demand careful and intense study before revealing their full astonishing beauty.
“All the trademarks that gained the American progressive pioneers their cult status are still there: forward-thinking riffing fused with the rhythmical intricacy of jazz and the melodic complexity of progressive rock.”
Drummer Sean Reinert recently said of Kindly Bent To Free Us: “We’ve had a lot of time to let this material develop and gestate. I couldn’t be happier about what’s happening with these songs. They are truly alive.”
The three-piece’s last full-length album was 2008′s Traced In Air, and it was followed by two EPs: Re-Traced in 2010 and Carbon Based Anatomy the following year. Find out more.
