"I've been working away in the home studio writing lots of new songs and keeping off the grid to stay creatively focused.

It's safe to say that Cynic already has plenty of material for a new record, but something keeps the inspiration going to write more.

As we move further along and closer to 'destination recording', the album will start to shape itself and the appropriate songs will be chosen.
