CYNIC Streaming New Track “Kindly Bent To Free Us”

A new track from Cynic’s forthcoming album, Kindly Bent to Free Us, has premiered in the form of a lyric video over at Revolver. The track just so happens to be the album’s title track and just like the previously released “The Lion’s Roar”, takes a little more subdued and softer approach compared to the band’s previous releases. Regardless, this six minute jam is something all prog-fans, including myself, will enjoy. You can stream the track after the break.

Mouth Of Swords: THE SAFETY FIRE Release New Music Video

TSFI praised The Safety Fire‘s new album Mouth Of Swords a while back and, while it’s slowly slipped away from me, I still enjoy a handful of the songs on the album. The band recently released their latest music video for the albums title track, which is one of my favorite songs on the album. The video is cool except for the annoyance of how the song doesn’t sync up. Whatsoever. I know tons of bands do this when they release live performance videos, but they usually aren’t this apparent. I do enjoy the non-performance footage, though.

See what you think:       Continue reading
