    Nouvelles de Paul Masvidal sur la page FB de Cynic :
    "Ok friends, You got my attention...here's an official update. I've been working away in the home studio writing lots of new songs and keeping off the grid to stay creatively focused. Apologies for having been a bit reclusive in our digital age of informational abundance! It's safe to say that Cynic already has plenty of material for a new record, but something keeps the inspiration going to write more. I feel like I'm on for the ride and just seeing what manifests as a result of sitting on the train and looking out the window. As we move further along and closer to 'destination recording', the album will start to shape itself and the appropriate songs will be chosen. We're looking at late summer / early fall to enter the studio. At the moment, I have no idea when the record will be released. Maybe later this year or early next. We're also in communication with lots of fantastic new musicians who will be involved. I can already sense this next album is going to take our listeners on a whole new sonic adventure that words cannot yet describe. I say this because the work is feeling based and there's a lot of life poured into these embryos that will speak for themselves when heard. I'm always amazed at how living life informs the art so directly and yet we have no power over it. The songs have a directness and urgency unlike anything we've done before due to a bountiful influx of concentrated life experiences. Thank the universe for the gift of music. I am so absolutely grateful to be alive and to be able to share the potency and beauty of music with you. In the meantime keep spreading the love and thank you for taking this journey with us. Oneness...pm"

    Intéressant...plenty of musicians? J'avoue que j'aimerai bien un retour de Sean Malone, mais sinon Tony Choy serait une bonne idée... :diable:

    Une réponse de Paul concernant une question d'un fan sur le forum :

    Can you give us any details on the musicians you will be bringing in for this new album? I'm sure we are all very curious, and would be very appreciative of any details you want to give us on certain musicians you are considering, or the auditioning process if any, etc, etc?

    -----

    I wish I could! ...it's too soon to say since we're just 'talking' to a handful of people at the moment without any confirmations. Word will be out soon enough. Just a hint...one of the bass players I'm in regular communication with is an LA local who works in the classical world although he has a progressive background with some mad chops. He now plays with various symphonies (as a double bassist) and also works as a local film / tv composer. He kinda reminds me of Malone in terms of knowledge and skill, but with his own set of sensibilities. We're gonna have an interesting arsenal of world class players on this next record... to say the least.

    Here's the 'Portal Demo' which represented our post 'Focus' material that was never officially released. We recorded these demoes in late '95 early '96 as pre-productions for our next record, but broke up soon after and they disappeared with us. Through the internet, they became somewhat legendary among the Cynic community and so, when we officially headlined the US for Traced In Air, we decided to re-master them and offer an 'official' band approved version to the fans. The CD sleeve package folds out and contains lyrics. Enjoy!

    Forefathers of Progressive Metal CYNIC have recorded a new EP entitled "Carbon-Based Anatomy", to be released on November 11th in Europe (November 15th in North America). Contrary to last year's "Re-Traced", this new EP exclusively consists of brand new material.

    Here are the tracklisting and cover artwork of "Carbon-Based Anatomy":
    1. Amidst The Coals
    2. Carbon-Based Anatomy
    3. Bija!
    4. Box Up My Bones
    5. Elves Beam Out
    6. Hieroglyph

    The artwork was designed by the great Robert Venosa, the artist behind the cover artworks of "Focus", "Traced in Air" and "Re-Traced". We regret to announce that Robert passed away last month. RIP.

    Paul Masvidal describes this new EP as "both a philosophical as well as a musical journey, one that begins in the Amazon jungle on the lips of a shamanic wisewoman (as portrayed by Amy Correia) and ends in outerspace".

    Last but not least, the fans will be excited to know that all bass parts on "Carbon-Based Anatomy" were recorded by Mr. Sean Malone.

    Who is another guitarist on new EP?
    Just me on guitars with Reinert and Malone. A trio record!

    Is there any growl ?
    No growls

    Did you record with Warren Riker again?
    No. We recorded drums at a studio called NRG in LA and I recorded the rest at my home studio. Malone cut bass at a studio in Florida. Mixed by John Hiler

    And did you got to use the Axe II on the album?
    Yes, it's all Fractal. The only keyboard on the record is the piano part on the track Bija! -
    A few months back, you were talking about bringing in some guest musicians for the recording of the album, I was wondering if (and how) this panned out?

    No guest musicians on this one other than Amy Correia. The record became a very intimate process for me and I just went with the flow.

    Would it be possible for you to give a short description of every song on the new EP?
    Here's a description written by a journalist after listening for the first time - It feels accurate to me.

    On the opening track, "Amidst The Coals," waves of ambient sound and chordal movement create a sense of touching earth and space. From the ethereal mist, a shamanic wisewoman (as portrayed by Amy Correia), conjures a traditional Amazonian Icaro, or sacred song. A chilling piece, the opening track suggests the energy of Pat Metheney's 'Above The Treetops' from his classic 1992 record 'Secret Story'. On track two, "Carbon-Based Anatomy," a tribal bass and drum rhythm swirls up in a pool of ambient guitars and soaring vocals, evolving into a spare arrangement of the original melody. A sea of child-like voices join Masvidal to sing the chorus "Drop the knife/ Leave it all behind/ Just for a moment/ Calm the mind/ The longing never ends/ Not while you're human". On Track 3, "Bija," the listener is transported center stage into the realm of gypsies and mystic poets, where chants, tablas, and free- associated vocal sounds appear and disappear in a dense tapestry of sound. Track 4, "Box Up My Bones," is a dynamic journey that
    reflects classic Cynic, with adventurous production shifts and cascading twists and turns. At the end of chorus two, Masvidal sings the words, "I have everything I need/ Box up my bones I'm free." A bass solo responds to this proclamation followed by a looping and angular reverse guitar solo. The pre-chorus bridge swells with a vocal section, climaxing at the final chorus. The unpredictable 'suis generis' approach to arrangement is alive in well. Track 5, "Elves Beam Out" is a futuristic rock anthem, evoking 70's prog-harmony and odd time signatures, an apocalyptic vision that pierces the veil. The album closes with track 6, "Hieroglyph." As though one's just walked through the portal into death's door, ambient spacey guitars manifest. Featured vocalist, Amy Correia, reappears as the cosmic mother, gently guiding one through the great unknown, perhaps the sound of a DMT journey or death itself.

    Will the live line up be the same as the album line up? Or did you do all the guitar tracks on the album?
    I did all the guitars. The live line up will be announced next week along with tour dates. We're excited about the new guys, been rehearsing and it's going great.

    - Do you really consider this release as a new album?
    It's always about quality vs quantity and Cynic prefers the former approach to song. For me CBA is a realized work with a complete vision. So although it's considered short (especially by prog rock standards), its incredibly dense and has just the right symmetry and flow without feeling short, but just right. I have another album written, and will probably start working on flushing that material out in early 2012.

    - Did you register additional tracks during this session of recording for "Carbon-Based Anatomy" ?
    For CBA, we just recorded what we intended to release.

    - Is there a general concept and\or a link between every pieces?
    Yes, it's another life and death themed record. The album opens with an icaro inspired from a shamanic tribe, so the roots of the album are earth based and represent the heart and healing and essentially birth itself, we then move into the human experience ranging from anger and pain to innocence and surrender and end with an ambient 'death' piece that explores the feeling of transitioning out of our bodies. I prefer not to be too literal about these descriptions since I think you'll each have your own personal journey with this album and I'd rather not 'define' the parameters too much.

    - Why this return of Sean Malone? Is it definitive or just for repairing again?
    Malone and I started talking again and he understood what we were going for, so it just felt natural to bring him in.

    Did he participate in the writing of his new pieces?
    Not the songs themselves, but he did write his own bass lines as he always does.

    - You go to turn in Europe in November, what will be the line-up?
    The news will be revealed next week. I've been asked to keep a cap on it till then because our label / managers wants to synchronize the news all at once (unless you guys can keep a secret?)

Paul manages to squeeze in recording sessions, Cynic stuff, and even DTA...a workaholic (and perfectionist), like me. ERIC

    Cynic, c'est fini.

    Cynic a écrit:It is with a heavy heart that I post today's CYNIC news. CYNIC is no longer an active band. Due to artistic and personal differences, the second chapter in the ‘BOOK OF CYNIC’ has come to an end.

    I will say the last shows we played in JAPAN have left me with a positive charge, even though they were the last live performances with Paul, Sean Malone & I on the same stage. My longstanding creative partnership with Paul, which started when we were very young kids in south Florida, has simply endured so much friction that there is no way, from my perspective, that CYNIC can be salvaged, repaired or kept afloat by any means.

    I profusely apologize to the fans who were not only expecting us in China & Taiwan (that was not our fault), but to the fans who were planning to see us in Europe next month. These things happen, unfortunately, to bands. There can be differing levels of conflicts and/or differences in opinions, musical directions, or perspectives. Sometimes these things are insurmountable, and no amount of time or effort can resolve them. This is the case with CYNIC.

    This page will stay up, and of course there are our respective personal pages and websites that will continue to let everyone know what we’re doing individually.

    I wish all of you love & peace.

    -Sean
