Cynic are one of the most experimental, diverse and technically complex groups in the progressive rock/metal genre. Having shared the stage with such acts as Dream Theatre, Opeth and Meshuggah, Cynic has defined themselves as a group to be reckoned with.
Their first landmark release ‘Focus’ was released on Roadrunner Records in 1993 to critical acclaim. After touring in Europe and the US they broke up in 1994. Shortly after reforming in 2007, the group released a new record entitled ‘Traced In Air’ followed by the aptly named EP ‘Re-Traced’.
The album, "Kindly Bent to Free Us", was released on February 14, 2014
