Cynic have released the first track from their new record, Kindly Bent To Free Us. ‘The Lion’s Roar’ is streaming over on Guitar World right now.
Drummer Sean Reinert has described the album as a “bold new sound” for Cynic and ‘The Lion’s Roar’ certainly invokes some impressive sounds. While the band has stepped away more and more from metal since their reunion, the track opens with a nice crunchy guitar before blossoming into sounds more akin to last album Traced In Air, which seems to be a strong indication of where the new record is going.
