And they sounded fantastic.

Hey, remember when we were pretty sure Cynic was playing a secret show last Friday? They did. Cynic took the stage for the first time since 2015 at the Knitting Factory in North Hollywood, CA last Friday to play the entirety of their 1993 album Focus alongside a few tracks from Kindly Bent To Free Us, Traced In Air, Ascension Codes, and Carbon-Based Anatomy.
