I'm really digging this track.
I have hope for Cynic once more.
Great track, lyric video sucks but the rest is great.
Digging: Kayo Dot - Coffins on Io
hmmmm it's ok
I'm still hung up on the line "Hobbit-sized"...
Digging: Enabler - La Fin Absolue Du Monde
Na this actually rulez.
Real good. The song, not the video, that blows.
Digging: Echoes (UK) - The Pursuit
what an amazingly ok song
Not digging what I have heard from this so far
what are they doing
bringing the zzzzzzzzz's
A weird mix and lyrics about hobbits.
I predict this thread will be a train wreck
Digging: Gates - Bloom and Breathe
Shame you have to wait almost 3 minutes for the good stuff to begin :/
Bass is mixed annoyingly high.
I want to hear this so bad, I bet the bass is amazing.
But can't cos my phone won't acknowledge the video..0.o
wow really sucks
Digging: Ariel Pink - Pom Pom
"Shame you have to wait almost 3 minutes for the good stuff to begin"
I agree the last half is awesome ham-man, but the first is great too. The bass was, as expected, amazing.
Didn't dig it too much, honestly.
Digging: Thank You Scientist - Maps of Non-Existent Places
way better than the other single
bass is so gd, songs alright but
Digging: Exodus - Blood In, Blood Out
I like this.
Digging: At the Gates - At War with Reality
big ole pile o meh
bro malone back in attack come on
I think his singing sounds a bit more lazy than previous releases, fuck I still dig it though.
I actually really dig this. I wish it was a bigger progression from Traced in Air, but then again the first song they released was a bit different and I didn't like it as much. Still, album is gonna be sweet
nice! I dug it, definitely excited for the full album. Also hoping the mix will sound a bit crispier, I'm betting youtube quality has a lot to do with it too.
holy hell that video was shit
song's aight tho
Better than Lion's roar
I did think the video was a little all over the place, but did anyone else dig the car windshield freakout shit like me?
why would u watch a lyric video GOSH
Who said that this thing takes 3 minutes to get good?
That is factually incorrect information
Not bad, but the mix is a bit off putting. Hell, I'm a bassist and I think it's too loud. But great track.
Digging: xSPONGEXCOREx - Don't Mess With TexXxas
Digging: Impetuous Ritual - Unholy Congregation of Hypocritical Ambivalence
The Lion’s Roar is on youtube if anyone's interested. It's the second track
I really hate the bass tone in these two songs. Too overpowering
i just don't know
why is this produced like poo
I won't be saying anything good or bad about this until the whole album comes out, but these two songs are strange as hell.
that production is horrible. the drums and bass sound like demo quality.
hmmmm..... idk. Once again, not a bad song but the mix is plain fucking weird
Decent song i guess, the lyrics i agree, wtf
lol everyone is so confused
Yeah seriously what's with people sayin its overproduced? It's underproduced to fuck. Not liking where this is going, its just decent and for cynic that's terrible.
Digging: Jakob - Sines
I predict I will rate this about a 3.5-4, after the full listen
I agree, if anything it's under-produced. Ok, not well produced is also acceptable though
Yeah this sounds too much like "Evolutionary Sleeper" guys
Cynic goes bm
Yeah seriously what's with people sayin its overproduced?
No one said that.
This was worse than the first song.
Digging: Godflesh - A World Lit Only By Fire
I did like the first song, though.
Digging: Ardour Loom - Demo
First time hearing a song have too much bass and not enough bass at the same time. Bass is in your
face but it still sounds thin overall.
You guys realize this probably isn't the final studio cut? I love reading bullshit about production upon first time sample songs. These guys are way too into themselves to put out mediocre production.
Dunno why people are clamoring to say this is an improvement over the other song, both have been pretty damn underwhelming.
Digging: Off Minor - The Heat Death of the Universe
Damn suckhola more like it.
Prefer this over the other song released
Digging: Peter Christopherson - Time Machines II
I prefer The Lion's Roar, but this one is phenomenal
Digging: Eden Circus - Marula
are there riffs?
Digging: Devin Townsend Project - Z2
oh shit, interest piqued
does it dm?
Growing off me eh this is annoying, looks like this is gonna be a snoozefest.
Pleb Jan 14: this actually rulez
Jan 15: snoozefest
Don't know what to make of it
But wtf is reinart doing
I dunno dude I'm confused! I dunno if I dig or not HELP ME :[
Pleb jumping the gun and hailing the song an improvement
Pleb sees the continued negative reception
Pleb suddenly doesn't like the song
Nothing's changed in my absence then!! :DD
Dude its Cynic, they warp minds :/
Wait for the album, if it blows, then fuck it
so it doesn't dm
dm is dead so y would it
It dm's as much as sleeping with sirens, if that much lol
DM was hands down revived last year here have u been
Kill have you heard zealotry yet?!
heard 1 song and it made me wana listen to immo
Eternal unbeliever rip
Way better than the last one. Malone killed it
Digging: Submotion Orchestra - Alium
you're queeing kill, zealotry is awesome, do you even left and right ear riff
Kill's an old man set in his ways cap you'll never convince him
He's like 22 or some shit.
What do you think of this track Jacquiqueef?
It's pretty good but still extremely disappointing.
Paul got us all :[
"Kill's an old man set in his ways cap you'll never convince him"
well since he's like half my age I guess I'm dyin' tomm
Digging: Round One to Round Five - 1993-99 Main Street Records
To the dumbos hung up on the "hobbit-sized" line:
That's a reference to fairly recently discovered 1m-tall hominid homo floresiensis, which has been often discussed in the popular press as the discovery of a hobbit-sized human specie.
The lyric is not a reference to Tolkien's fictional race, and it's not indicative of a fantasy bend to the lyrics.
Well, a reference of a reference is still a reference...
It would be a better lyric if it was setting upa fantasy bent
Agreed, it would be less wtf in that case.
damn why isn't this good
Digging: Horrendous - Ecdysis
I don't get y peeps aren't diggin, it's gd
dude it rulz, they're all just plebean pervert derelicts.
I thought this was good.
The bass is way loud, yeah, but whatever.
Peeps aren't digging it cuz it's good. Cynic isn't a good band. Traced in Air and Focus are fucking mindblowing.
Kind of boring. The vocal melodies are pretty much the same as always. Lyrics are pretty much about the same stuff; a bit too cheese ball for me. Bass is too high in the mix. Excellent musicianship. Just not very interesting.
Digging: Dioramic - Supra
