Similar to Cynic?

Hey guys! Well, this last month I was completely addicted to Cynic. I could only listen to them, no other band would satisfy my needs but them. Quality really overwhelms quantity, with only 2 albums and 1 EP, they're already one of my favorite bands (probably the favorite really!). Thing is, I've listened to Focus, Traced in Air and Re-Traced a dozen times and I want more, but as they don't have any more albums, I'm searching for some similar bands but.. I have nothing so far
Well, this can be a good compliment for them, they're really unique, but.. I need to listen to something similar to Cynic

Please help me guys!

Exivious for one, but the only other Jazzy Death bands were Atheist, latter-day Death and Pestilence.

You should also check out bands like Planet X, Lye By Mistake and Ron Jarzombek's bands
Spastic Ink, Watchtower and Blotted Science.

I've heard Exivious and IMO they're more jazzy than Cynic and that's really cool the only thing is the lack of voice. I love Paul Masvidal clean voice with effects + Tymon's growls

I'll check the other ones. Thanks

you can always listen to other bands of Paul Masvidal/Sean Reinert - it's all the same substance really, only the form is different

my youtube channel- http://www.youtube.com/user/vitreusMD?feature=mhum SikTh, Cyclamen After the Burial covers. More on the way!

Aghora +1!!!

I posted in the black metal thread, Direwolf strikes me as among the closest. BTW, that's Mike Lerner from Behold the Arctopus.









Spiral Architect is really good too, though they only put out one album to my knowledge:

Don't forget Monstrosity when they had Jason Gobel. There's also Gordian Knot.

I'm currently obsessed with Genghis Tron and was the same with with Cynic when I found them as you are now, it happened with Dillinger Escape Plan too. GT are a bit different using a synth and samplers or something and a guitarist and no drummer or bassist but they write awesome music. I love the album Board up the House

Dude, I love Martyr, but I wouldn't say they sound anything like Cynic.

Try this:



The whole disc is like this. Very enjoyable.

Division - American metal that doesn't suck. Much. Even on Facebook, and Soundclick might eventually be updated, too.

Early exivious Demo's sound remarkably like cynic. Vocals included.





Enjoy.

Gordian Knot perhaps? A Sean Malone project, and features all of the other cynic guys on various tracks. Also, check out some or Cynic's influences: The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Allan Holdsworth, etc.

As said before, Exivious and planet x. Planet x aren't THAT similar, but they are superb band (listen to alien hip hop).

Anyway, I just thought I would say these two again just so you don't miss em ^^

(you can listen to the entire exivious album from their site too ) (and planet x is on spotify (however for some reason there is an album from some other band under the name of planet x XD . It isn't them :P (some S/D thing....))

Other than that, don't really know . Everyone else has posted lots anyway so you got loads to listen too XD .
