Default The ever-popular "Currently Listening" thread

October 13th, 2011, 19:18
Currently listening to a recently released preview song from the upcoming Cynic EP.

They seem to be covering a bit new ground, which I´m glad for because their comeback album didn´t work for me as well as the classic Focus (Veil of Maya and such) - it was a bit too disjointed for my tastes (at least when it comes to this particular style, I love Mr. Bungle´s Disco Volante, for example ), I wasn´t much fond of the vocal production and, well, the album overall felt kinda forced to me.

Anyway, if this new song is of any indication, I like the direction they´re taking. Motives have more time to breathe, there are more post rock-y, as well as "poppy" elements, harsh vocals, which felt tackled on on previous album anyway, were probably removed altogether.
Amazing instrumentation and moments with distinctively "alien" atmosphere are still there, plus I think the overall production is superb and helps the bass in particular.

Aaaand here´s the tune:
Carbon Based Anatomy

Haha, at least when it comes to metal in ´90+, I´ve often asked similar question, broadened to Canada + Scandinavia.
However, from where I´m sitting, nothing can quite compare to what was happening with rock music in Great Britain during the circa ´68 - ´75 period .
