    Years ago, (after ATDE but before ARLH), Paul released a couple files on Dropbox that were basically "album ideas," and they were fucking phenomenal, like Steve Vai with an 8 string. However, the link is long since gone. I message Paul about them, but he never responded. It wasn't short either, there was nearly 20 minutes of music all told.

    I really wish I could hear them again.

    Try ‘The Distance’, Fires in the snow, and gates of hell. Those are all a little more guitar driven while still being pretty catchy.

    Always had huge respect for him. One of the pioneers of all this stuff. It's a shame he's not able to really do this full time anymore. Regret not seeing him when he came to the states years ago.

    Chimpspanner opened for Cynic here a few years ago and I couldn't get a fake ID to go to the show.

    So that's 2 of my favourites I missed my only chance to ever see.

    New song is cool, but the mix seems a bit thin to me. Maybe juts the bandcamo stream though.

    Damn that new track is chaotic! Loving the crazy blasts, eerie atmosphere / tonality and the ending grooves.

    I've been enjoying those clips for years, apparently on my own... here:
    - "Sampler Clip A"
    - "Sampler Clip B"
    - "Ambient Metal Construction: 2"

    Pretty sure the "Ambient Metal Construction" mp3 is a demo from the loop pack series he sells online by that name. Not sure exactly when or where I found these but I'm glad I saved them when I could!

    Thanks for sharing. Really wish he would flesh out these ideas. His music always have had that Mario Kart 64/jazz fusion vibe and I love it.

    Korruptor sounds very different for him. Love it.
