Hmm. I dunno. This isn't striking me quite the same way as Focus, Traced, or Carbon. Must listen moar, but I've always loved the shit out of "Circle."

Digging: Benjamin Clementine - I Tell A Fly

Wow, this is great. I love when Cynic releases stuff. Don't know what I'm gonna rate this yet though, it deserves a few more listens.

I'd call this and Re-Traced the Cynic Apocrypha. The demos too, if you want to count them.



But this is very different from your standard Cynic, imo.

Yeah, but I still stick by my statement that this sounds like it could have easily come after Carbon-Based.
