Old-school straight up wierdness from florida. My guitar teacher told me to check them out, so I got focus and I freakin' love it. Awesome in all it's wierd glory. The drumming is top notch. Anyone else like them?
#2
The bass work is amazing. Focus is such a good album. Each time I listen I find new fascinating things.

The guitarist and drummer from Death's Human were in Cynic and I do like them but it took a while to get past the weird computer vocals.

A great band with a tragically small output.


Yeah, and they aren't very well known... they're an awesome band. Very underrated.

i think they are very well known
people just tend to not talk about a band so much when they only put out one album and split-up over 10 years ago
though they were known more for their demos, before they released focus in 93, they were known as the biggest band to never release an album
My sig is better than yours

Yeah, well I think a better way to put it would be that not many people have actually heard them, but have heard of them.

Well put. Very true. Although I'm not sure they'd manage to make something else as weird and good as Focus.

Great album btw

there's alot of cool stuff, but I think Atheist is a bit more.... cohesive song-wise. a bit more traditonal sounding, also. but cynic is excellent, tony choy definitely is a bass GOD in my book for his work with both bands.
#17
Does anyone have any of the Cynic demos? I haven't been able to find them.
#18
^ I know a guy who has some Cynic Demos. If you have Soulseek I might be able to leech them off him for ya.

Anyway, Focus is Mental, VEIL OF MAYA

No, I dont have soulseek... (Mac.) But I would be willing to trade for it via email or AIM, if possible.

And yes, Focus owns.

Don't be derivative. Explore...

I just picked this up a while back. Ive only listened to it once or twice, Masvidals screaming kinda grates on me. The instrumentation is awesome Im gonna have to give Wintersun a break and let Focus grow on me.
