Cynic - Kindly Bent To Free Us

Definitely marking itself as one of the more intriguing releases of 2014, Cynic‘s Kindly Bent To Free Us has further twisted the core Cynic sound to a much more psychedelic and altogether more subtle approach than it was before. The band have unveiled a couple of tracks now, but the latest comes in the form of  a new lyric video for ‘True Hallucination Speak‘, which, to me at least, seems the most traditional of the tracks we’ve heard thus far. Check it out:


The track comes as courtesy of Terrorizer, who also got some words from drummer Sean Reinert on the album’s new sound and his thoughts on the immediate future:

We’ve had a lot of time to let this material develop and gestate, and it finally feels ready to be unleashed on the world. I’ve been in trio mode with [Sean] Malone and [Paul] Masvidal flushing out a zillion and one details, and couldn’t be happier about what’s happening with these songs.

Kindly Bent To Free Us will be released on Valentines Day. Show it some love.
