Cynic dispute resolved

2017-12-10 by judasgoat | 39 Comments
Progressive death metal icons Cynic appear to have settled a longstanding dispute on the status of the band.

Vocalist and guitarist Paul Masvidal will continue under the Cynic name with new musicians. Drummer Sean Reinert is no longer a member of the band, and will continue with other projects. Reinert is now a member of Perfect Beings. Bassist Sean Malone played a few shows with Cynic after the dispute began but it is unconfirmed if he remains in the band.

Below is Reinert's Facebook post regarding the issue in full:

"Today I post with a heavy heart, but also a lightened spirit. A settlement has been reached between Paul and I in regards to CYNIC. I am unable to disclose any of the details regarding this agreement but I am at peace with the arrangement. I am going to step aside from CYNIC and continue with my personal projects - Paul is going to continue with CYNIC and his.

I want to take this last Facebook post as an opportunity to humbly thank all of the musicians, engineers, technicians, companies, booking agents, managers, crew, press, labels and friends that I've worked with (and will likely continue to) over this past 30-year span.
Most of all - I would like to thank the fans, who to this day still blow me away with their loyalty and love. You've always been the inspiration and the fuel for the machine!

To Paul, I sincerely wish him and the musicians he hires nothing but the best.

Love,
Sean"

He has mentioned he wants to get into salsa and waltz music and take the group into that direction so next record should be very spicy

I guess this means more music like Kindly Bent To Free Us. Not really my cup of tea but anything from Cynic would be welcome. Even if it's just Masvidal now.

You're declaring them dead after one bad album? Damn, that seems a little unfair.

Personally, I'm pumped.
