At long last, we have details regarding the full-length followup to 2008’s Traced In Air. Psychedelic progressive metal legends Cynic will be releasing their third studio album Kindly Bent To Free Us on Valentines Day 2014!
The album’s artwork (above) definitely has that vaguely Cynic feel, but following the brilliant artwork throughout their discography by the late Robert Venosa, this one feels pretty dull, dingy, and cheap in comparison. Something more vibrant and colorful could have done wonders, but then again, I haven’t heard a single note of new music so for all I know, this could be perfectly representative of the music to come.
And that’s what matters most, right? New Cynic is always excellent news, and I look forward to Valentine’s Day, February 14th, 2014.
