Fifteen years following their debut, the inspirational Miami quartet known as Cynic returns with a brilliant tapestry of sound entitled TRACED IN AIR. Mixed and engineered by Grammy-winning knob-smith Warren Riker (Santana, Down, Sublime), Cynic's sophomore effort is a brilliant comeback. Having spent years honing their individual skills in bands like Death, Gordian Knot, and OSI, Cynic has the chops to take the concept of progressive metal to new level. Where 1993's FOCUS just scratched the surface, TRACED IN AIR digs deep into composition as well as execution, and takes the listener on a musical odyssey not heard since the heyday of Yes or David Bowie.
