Indukti

It's like if Cynic and Tool did some HEAVY drugs, and did gay yoga style man love together.

Listen to as many tracks as you can. The music constantly shifts and changes. From the heaviest chuggiest shit to trippy weird stuff. It's pretty intense.







This one is my favorite:

Double A and -The Black Halo- like this.

Also, Last Chance To Reasons new album is pretty Cynic-y. White Arms of Athena too.

I love Indukti especially their first album S.U.S.A.R where Mariusz Duda of Riverside handles the vocals.

I think the closest band to Cynic imo is Spiral Architect. A Sceptics Universe smokes.

All of the main ones have already been mentioned - Martyr, Exivious, Direwolf. Also Obscura have a lot of Cynic influence.

There's an awesome semi-local band called Exist that would fit the description.

And of course my band Crossing The Event Horizon is super Cynic-influenced, with a more prominent rhythmic element and more blatant Holdsworth worship.

I dont know if they where mentioned but I didnt see any videos of them on here. What amazes me the most is the fact that they achieve that vocoder effect just by doing harmonies, as oposed to using a vocoder.

Cynic doesn't use a vocoder. It's a digitech vocal harmony pedal.

Thus why it sounds similar.

Actually they did use a vocoder on Focus and for live shows during that era.

They now use a TC Helicon VoiceLive.

eh, I guess.

It was the digitech vocalist pedal, but I guess it IS a vocoder. I did not realize, but the growl singer was actually controlling it via keyboard. I thought it was just a harmonized preset, didn't realize there was a legit vocoder option in the Vocalist.

My mistake.

However, the point I meant was that the reason the Cynic vocals can be reproduced with just harmonies is because that's mostly all they are. It sounds like on Wheels Within Wheels there's several parts where Paul just sings the harmony instead of using the effect (although the effect is on other parts in the same song.)
