Cynic’s Paul Masvidal Speaks On New Album


Cynic frontman/guitarist Paul Masvidal recently spoke with regarding the bands progress on their next album. Speaking on that he offered:

“Right now we’re deep in the album. It’ll probably come out towards the end of the year. I think that’s the goal, to deliver it by the summer. So that’s it right now; just make a killer album. I feel really great about it already, I think that we’re in good shape. ”

“It’s almost like, I don’t know how to explain it, but if I had to put it in a box it’s more sci-fi, futuristic and alien but at the same time very song driven. It’s kind of like, to me, coming into Cynic’s body more. It feels very modern and at the same time it just feels really cool. I’m big in the space. It’s definitely new.

It’s not like anything we’ve done before. It’s a new colour, a new space. I think people will really take note of even the guitar stuff. I’m really shifting gears, I’m trying things in a different way and the way stuff is played. It’s a new space for Cynic for sure. It definitely sounds like us, except completely new.”

Cynic offshoot Portal will be releasing their 17 year old collection of demos under the Cynic moniker late next month. You can expect to find “The Portal Tapes” in stores on March 27th via Season Of Mist.
