I have to say that the advanced word on Kindly Bent to Free Us, the newest long-player from seminal progressive death metal outfit Cynic, kind of had me worried. It wasn’t the purported lack of heaviness that raised the alarm bells in my head, because heaviness isn’t really something I’ve associated with Cynic; their jazz/prog side has always seemed more dominant to me than their death metal side. The disappearance of the vocoder on Paul Masvidal’s vocals didn’t really make me pause, either.
