Innovative, progressive death metal band Cynic will return to Station 4 in St. Paul on Friday, July 30. Presumably this is part of a tour that has yet to be officially announced. After an absence from the scene for many years, the influential band released Traced In Air in 2009. The album was received enthusiastically, and this year saw the release of the Re-Traced EP which features reworked versions of four songs and one new song, "Wheels Within Wheels". Their last appearance at Station 4 while supporting Meshuggah in February 2009 was unfortunately disappointing. Cynic's sound was so bass-heavy and distorted that it was nearly impossible to enjoy the songs.
I previously posted the video and audio of a full-length classic Cynic concert from June 1994 in Des Moines. This was the only US tour done to support Focus while they were opening for Cannibal Corpse. Check out "Veil Of Maya" as go to my earlier post to download the entire show.
Cynic will be performing at Station 4 in St. Paul on Friday, July 30. Support will come from Intronaut and Dysrhythmia.
