Cynic have revealed a lyric video for The Lion’s Roar (courtesy of Prog Magazine) taken from the band’s upcoming album Kindly Bent to Free Us, which will be released on February 14 via Season of Mist.
The label reports: “Instead of simply repeating their successful formula, Cynic dare to expand their horizon into even more complex soundscapes that demand careful and intense study before revealing their full astonishing beauty.
“All the trademarks that gained the American progressive pioneers their cult status are still there: forward-thinking riffing fused with the rhythmical intricacy of jazz and the melodic complexity of progressive rock.”
Drummer Sean Reinert recently said of Kindly Bent To Free Us: “We’ve had a lot of time to let this material develop and gestate. I couldn’t be happier about what’s happening with these songs. They are truly alive.”
