Probably because Cynic hasn't done anything remotely good since Traced In Air.

To anyone worried about how mellow this is, don't worry. It's just an "intro" song. They wanted to release this first because it's really just a tease.

These guys are pure talent. Video is very intimate and suits the song well.

Great song, all I could think of though is that the guitarist looks like Michael from Achievment Hunter.

Because I talked to Cameron about it when I saw them. I mean, I didn't hear any other songs, but he hinted that this album will certainly get heavy.

New song just leaked. Conspire. Yes it does get heavy

Lessard is an awesome vocalist! I've just linked the two songs together for anyone interested with a bit EQ to make the
2nd part sound better.

Their other was more on the death core side. This is the most melodic they've been. And I for one love it!

Lessard's cleans are top-notch (Conspire has a couple of particularly sublime moments), but i can't help but miss Jonathan Carpenter's screams a little. they were so commanding and fit their heavier sections perfectly.

There isn't enough harsh vocals between this and Conspire for me to judge, Lessard sounded awesome live though

Intrinsic sounded WAY better live than it did on record. This new record does sound kinda lame.

God knows what the fuck the man is singing about but damn it sounds so sweet and soothing. Although it has a certain similarity with Volume's Erased.
