BRAND NEW RELEASE FROM PROG METAL MASTERS CYNIC FEATURING REWORKED TRACKS FROM TRACED IN AIR AND A COMPLETLY NEW NEVER BEFORE RELEASED TRACK.
When legendary CYNIC announced their reunion in 2007, media interest immediately soared and their dedicated fans streamed to sold-out festival and tour performances. Their comeback album “Traced in Air” scored “Album of the year” titles by the dozens and sales went up to five digits. The US-band’s cult status is based on a highly original mixture of extreme Metal riffing fused with the rhythmical intricacy of Jazz and the melodic complexity of Progressive Rock. Taking their love for musical experimentation even further, CYNIC turn four songs from “Traced in Air” inside out and create four brand-new tracks for “Re-Traced”. This album furthermore includes the not earlier released track “Wheels Within Wheels”. Their exploration on “Re-traced” leads the band to what they call “sci-fi prog folk”, which is part psychedelic rock, part minimalist restraint. Even without vocoder or the traditionally busy CYNIC riffs the music retains its song structure, integral melodic sense, harmony and lyrical inspiration. There are no limits to the Americans re-inventing their own songs and shedding light on their inherent beauty. Follow CYNIC into a new galaxy of sound with “Re-traced”!
