CYNIC's Drummer Had No Say In The Recent Demo Compilation Release
If you're wondering if Cynic is broken up or not, it doesn't seem like anyone knows. Cynic drummer Sean Reinert seems to be under the impression they are, and vocalist and guitarist seems to think they're not.
Last week, a compilation of the band's first four demos were released as Uroboric Forms – The Complete Demo Recordings, and Reinert has taken to Cynic's Facebook page to state that only Masvidal had a say in the release.
I just need to clarify a few things since I am now receiving interviews asking about the new demo release on Century Media. I, Jason and Tony had nothing to do with this. Paul and I negotiated the deal in 2015 and since the split after Japan in September of 2015 Paul has cut off all collaboration with this project. I don't even have a copy. So while I continue to try resolve the fate of CYNIC – know that that release (besides the musical content) is all Paul. Some of you might like that, some might not care- however I needed to send out this blank statement so I stop receiving questions and interviews about a record that I and the other musicians were shut out of.
So who knows what the fate of Cynic in 2017 will be, but it certainly sounds like things are mired down in the legal domain… maybe.
