In 2008, after a fifteen-year hiatus, the legendary CYNIC re-emerged with ‘Traced in Air.’ An album of sublime beauty, ‘Traced in Air’ blended their renowned musical prowess with splendor and grace, putting forth forward-thinking riffing fused with the rhythmical intricacy of jazz and the melodic complexity of progressive metal.
Now, a decade later, CYNIC usher forth a renewed edition of that very album. Featuring new tracking by virtuoso bassist Sean Malone and a vibrant new mix by PERIPHERY’s Adam “Nolly” Getgood (ANIMALS AS LEADERS, DEVIN TOWNSEND, HAKEN), and mastering by Ermin Hamidovic, ‘Traced in Air Remixed’ underscores the record’s importance within the genre.
CYNIC was formed in 1987 during the burgeoning rise of death metal in Miami, Florida before relocating to Los Angeles, California. The impressive technical abilities of the band’s founding members even caught the attention of DEATH’s Chuck Schuldiner, who recruited Paul Masividal and Sean Reinert, which led to the inception of the 1991 landmark album ‘Human.’ During the band’s career that spans over three decades, they have garnered a cult following and unyielding praise from critics for shaping the prog metal genre with their impressive creativity. ‘Traced in Air Remixed’ is no exception to this, only further lending to CYNIC’s undisputed legacy.
