They're ok... They get hyped up a bit more than they deserve in my opinion.

NO MATT! Just no. They damn well deserve any respect and/or praise that they receive.
The robot vocals are often a problem for me though...

You're right...

I shall now alter MY opinion based solely on YOUR opinion.

they do have a US tour planned, tho without Malone. don't know about a new album, haven't heard anything on that front. i am hoping and praying for a European tour, or my god you will all feel my wrath.

I wasn't saying you should change your point of view because I said so, I just say that they earn all the respect that they get.

Although, I like your idea too

EXTRA TRACK?! GIMME!!!


Did they put out any info about the tour dates?
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

Did i say track, i meant trackS lol. I got 3 extra tracks "Cosmos", "The Circle's Gone" and "Endless Endeavour" as well as 3 remixes.

I checked earlier, they havnt put any info up about tour dates yet from what ive seen. I hope they come to Australia, but i highly highly doubt it.

Do you mean some tracks were remixed or the whole album was remixed as in remastered?
If you mean the first one, which tracks got remixed?

Rather than reminiscing about how great they were, why don't we talk about how much they suck?

Strangely everytime Cynic is mentioned Atheist comes up.

Probably becase Tony Choy played on the Cynic demos and Darren McFarland (Atheist's touring bassist) auditioned for Cynic.

I do agree with TI_Bryan when he said Atheist had more cohereance. I think Atheist had catchier songs as well. I often find myself growling along to Atheist . (Mind you I find Veil of Maya and How Could I? catchy as ****)

When I got Focus I also bought Unquestionable Presence with it and I expected to like Focus more than UP but I found the opposite true. Although Focus is probably in my top 10 albums, UP is higher up.

This band, as unfathomably awesome as they are, are terrible live. The sound was excellent and the playing was spot on, but no energy.
Although, one can't blame them. The music just doesn't call for it...

Cynic is AMAZING

Veil of Maya is in my top 10 most played songs on iTunes.
A heathen, conceivably
but not,

I hope,

Barbarism is the natural state of mankind
Civilization is unnatural

It is a whim of circumstance
