New album from Cynic - "Ascension Codes"!
3 years after their last single 'Humanoid', American progressive metal pioneers CYNIC are back and releasing their long awaited new album "Ascension Codes"!
'Ascension Codes' is a remarkably far-reaching piece of work, and if nothing else, a clear indication that they have landed in a place of mastery. The album, paradoxically, acts as both swan song and rebirth.
CYNIC’s top-tier performance acumen and cerebral/spiritual/yogic themes find them inhabiting a corner of the musical spectrum all of their own. Their Venn diagram shows intersections with death metal, prog rock, thrash metal, experimental, new age, jazz fusion, and a myriad of other sonic expressions!
Frontman Paul Masvidal comments: "'Ascension Codes' is a portrait of contrasts, like those between struggle and stillness, or the immediate against the limitless.”
