CYNIC est enfin de retour avec un troisième album très attendu. S'il est le digne successeur des cultes "Focus" (1993) et "Traced in Air" (2008), "Kindly Bent to Free Us" n'est poursuit pas moins l'évolution amorcée par l'EP "Carbon-Based Anatomy" (2011): une musique toujours aussi progressive et aérienne, mais plus orientée rock que metal. La virtuosité des génies musicaux Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert et Sean Malone s'y exprime mieux que jamais via des parties hallucinantes de dextérité et de mélodie. Edition limitée en Digipak deluxe avec impression or et livret 16 pages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another New Chapter for Cynic 18 février 2014
Par J. Hill - Publié sur
Format: CD
Do you need an open mind to appreciate the new Cynic? Considering that they've never released an album that conformed to any genre boundaries, and that every one of their releases, EP's included, have always sounded markedly different from each other, I'd say you don't need any more of an open mind than usual when approaching this band. It sounds like Cynic, but it doesn't sound exactly like any previous album of theirs. There's more “Traced in Air” here than “Focus,” along with some traces of the “Carbon-Based Anatomy” EP, but it's also different. I don't think they've evolved into something else, as there aren't necessarily new areas of music they've never explored on this album, but they always find new ways to use all of the tools at their disposal.

I can admit that it took me a few more listens for “Kindly Bent to Free Us” to grab me than the first two full-lengths, but by the third or fourth spin I was hooked. These songs present some sneaky melodies that don't immediately stand out, but sink in hours after you've listened to them. Also, the guitars are more subdued than they were on “Traced in Air,” with a slightly more thin tone and less overall distortion. At first, it gives the impression that Cynic continue to soften and go for a lighter sound, but deeper listening offers another view. Rather than being a band alternating between technical metal and spacey, New Age music like in the past, they're more artistically ambiguous and drift between the dark and light aspects of their sound more fluidly.

Listening to this up against “Traced in Air,” I definitely think the fans who favor Cynic's classy technical metal approach might be in for a letdown, but if you've followed them through the transitions marked by the “Re-Traced” and “Carbon-Based Anatomy” EP's, you'll see this as a natural progression. The transitions between heavy and soft are smoother, and instead of abrupt, almost random breaks, Cynic has achieved a more fully integrated sound. At the same time, they've incorporated some new twists, like the somewhat catchy hooks in the first couple of songs, the rock vibe felt in “The Lions Roar,” the hypnotic drone of “Moon Heart Sun Head,” and the slowly evolving soundscape of “Infinite Shapes.” On the familiar side, the bass work is as prominent as on “Focus,” maybe even more so, providing a direct aural link to the first album. Also, songs like the title track and my personal favorite, “Gitanjali,” could easily have been on “Traced in Air” if not for the slightly stripped down style. If you're into this sort of anti-genre, progressive-minded, metal-centric approach to songwriting, chances are you'll find plenty to engage your mind on “Kindly Bent to Free Us.” I see it as another free-thinking triumph for a truly unique band.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Music from another world 20 février 2014
Par Ryan Cain - Publié sur
Format: CD
Music from a true progressive band. Cynic's roots are in death metal but this is not a metal release. In fact their only true metal release is their debut Focus. 10 years after that they release Traced in Air as a mind bending trip. Re-Traced takes them even further away from metal but also further into space. Following that comes Carbon-Based Anatomy EP which blends their metal roots with progressive rock and tribal rythyms. Carbon-Based Anatomy is otherworldly. Kindly Bend to Free Us continues this progression. There is lots of experimental ideas in this release and as always, top notch musicianship. One of the few original bands in todays world of water-downed and re-hashed ideas. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to hear something new and original.

After 5 long years, the new Cynic record finally arrives. I've been a die-hard Cynic fan since around 2001 when I first heard Focus. Focus for those who don't know, is one of the most original, complex, layered and beautiful records ever. When Cynic reformed around 2007 I was thrilled - Traced in Air could not have been better, especially for a band just getting around to making their 2nd record after a 15 year hiatus. After a few tours, and a couple EPs (Re-Traced and Carbon Based Anatomy) we get Kindly Bent to Free Us, the third Cynic album.

Firstly, this record is not "Focus 2" and it isn't even "Traced in Air 2" - it's another evolution in the sound of Cynic, which is one of the primary reasons I love this band. If I had to compare it to any of their previous work, it's closest to the Carbon Based Anatomy EP, but not entirely. Like CBA, this is not a "metal" album. There are brief moments of heaviness, always countered with stop-on-a-dime clean sections and breaks. Unsurprisingly, the two Sean's and Paul bring nearly unmatched technical proficiency, unique arrangements, and sophisticated song-craft to the table. Paul's vocals are less processed overall on this record than the previous two, but there are still plenty of whispy effects and harmonies filling that space. At first approach, this record feels a little naked comparatively as Cynic opted to approach this album as a trio. This takes some getting used to as a lot of the dual guitar interplay that was so ingrained in the last two Cynic records isn't really there. However, on closer inspection, that space is being filled in with pads, synths, backing vocals, etc, which does result in creating an overall dark and lush atmosphere. Ultimately, I still prefer Focus and TiA, those records to me are essentially flawless. Lyrically, Paul seems to have gravitated to what I would consider a more literal approach, which results in some lyrical choices that just don't quite sit comfortably or feel like they'll stand the test of time. The production of the record is adequate, but not necessarily stellar. Malone's bass/stick is considerably more prominent than on TiA, which is of course fantastic as his playing is other-worldly. The bottom line is that even a "not 100% perfect" Cynic record is absolutely phenomenal by any standard and should not be missed.

Is there a truly more progressive band on the scene right now than Cynic? Talk about refusing to be put in a box. I love these guys because every album is an adventure. Each new release goes in new directions. They don't go as far as to totally re-invent their core sound but its awful close. Compare Kindly Bent to their first album. Focus is the only "death" metal album I own-you can have that ridiculous growling- but I got it for the sheer awesomeness of the compositions. Mind blowing stuff. Then compare that with Carbon Based Anatomy and compare that with Traced in Air. Then slide over to Re-Traced. How many bands do acoustic versions of their songs? Plenty. How many literally overhaul the songs? So maybe they have truly re-tooled their sound. Now that's progressive in the truest sense of the word.

This album is imho the most immediately accessible of all their work. The melodies are hook filled, the harmonies are sweet -at times even delicate. I suppose since folks like points of reference you might throw out any of the Steven Wilson vehicles, add Pineapple Thief with a smattering of Smashing Pumpkins thrown in for good measure. Its metal, its indie, its post-rock, its prog, The only thing is, this record has by my ears less jazz influences than evidenced on their other albums.

You could say this is Cynic's most mainstream album to date but I absolutely can't stop listening to it. The writing is that good. Catchy, hypnotic in spots, downright seductive in others. There isn't a weak cut in the bunch. Not that there is a drop off afterwards but the first three cuts just kill it and serve as a real rocket launcher of a start.

From start to finish the performances are first rate. The flow of the album is superb. This is one of those albums that I can just hit replay and it doesn't get tiresome until about halfway through the third go round.

Its that good. Get it. Kindly Bent to Free Us is the best album this year...hands down. Enjoy.

The progenitors of prog are back with another collection of trippy and rhythmic songs. Long gone now is pretty much any metal influence or vocal gruffness - this release is entirely in the realm of Sean Malone's bass driven, fusion jazz progressive rock. In essence the tendencies they moving toward on Traced In Air are now predominant. Masvidal keeps the vocals light and somewhat distorted at times so without the lyric sheet it's really hard to understand the words. Even so, with lyric sheet in hand, these words are completely over my head. Fortunately, the best part of Cynic and the one that doesn't change (in a good way) is drummer Sean Reinert. His polyrhythms and syncopation keep the music flowing in a positive direction even when it wants to bog down in excessive "trippiness." The song "Infinite Shades" exhibits the kind of work that has made this band unique, with the fluctuations in intensity and dynamics. These ideas are nicely continued on "Moon Heart Sun Head" which showcases some more aggressive guitar and drum work. Overall, for me, there just isn't enough substance here to really "get ahold of" so despite repeated listens I don't think this is as any of the prior works. Die-hard fans - and particularly those of the band's more recent incarnation - will likely want to obtain this, but even fans of progressive rock in general may find this a bit too musically (and certainly lyrically) esoteric for regular listening. I love the musicians and I like this music plenty enough, but it takes multiple spins over a longer period of time to really appreciate what's going on here.
