CYNIC - June 1994, Des Moines, Iowa (Remastered)

I posted this classic Cynic show a while back, but I thought with their upcoming show I'd try my hand at improving the audio quality of this. What you have here is a complete show from the Focus tour while supporting Cannibal Corpse and Sinister in June 1994. Focus is one of the most ground-breaking progressive death metal albums recorded. I've never been able to nail down the exact date of this show (June 18, 1994 is my best estimate)! I saw this tour in Chicago at the Oak Theater, however, I wasn't present at this show. A couple people who were at this show have been in touch with me, but they have no record of the concert date. For this remastered edition, I took the original video file transferred from VHS, boosted the volume, and tweaked the sound a bit. The result is audio that is less heavy on the high end, and I was able to get rid of most of the annoying tape hiss that plagued the original version. If you listen to this on a decent set of speakers it will sound richer and warmer, and you can crank it up a bit. I've also included new cover artwork. Cynic is out on tour now supporting their soon-to-be-released EP Carbon-Based Anatomy.

Cynic performed all but "Celestial Voyage" from Focus, and here are the details:
