Cynic - "Humanoid"

New MusictheneedledropComment

Cynic has returned with "Humanoid," their first piece of new music since 2014's Kindly Bent to Free Us. Moreover, the song strikes me as a return to form following that album's disappointing mildness. The band's back to creating sharp, inventive prog-metal – and holy shit are those basslines mind-blowing!

The single didn't coincide with an album announcement, but a new one this year through Season of Mist certainly appears to be in the cards.
