Oh boy... things are getting Queensryche / Gorgoroth / Immortal ugly after yesterday's Cynic breakup announced by Sean Reinert, as apparently not everyone wanted the disbanding to happen - or even knew the announcement was coming.

Fellow Cynic member Paul Masvidal posted this message online:

Things quickly devolved on the Cynic Facebook page both from the side of the fans and the band, with Reinert subsequently posting this series of messages about the situation:

"Instead of playing into the 'tit for tat' game of trying to defend any accusations of unscrupulous behavior on my part, with regards to the split of Cynic (Paul and I: Two people, Not three) would be childish. But he's caught in a lie below saying he can't post and I took over the page which is obviously not true. I'll leave it at that. I can't physically stop Paul from playing Cynics music with other musicians, but it won't be Cynic merely Paul playing Cynic songs with hired guns, which as stated he's wanted for a while. This isn't the way I wanted things to work out.

"I would just like to add one small thing and then just let the dust settle. When you are in a bad marriage you just get divorced…. you don't ask your spouse 'is it ok if we get a divorce, I'm not happy and this isn't working?' No you JUST DO IT. How this could 'come as news to me' and in the same paragraph say 'things have been quite challenging over the years.' Seems like it's been a possibility for years then doesn't it? Would you stay in an abusive relationship business or otherwise?"

Looks like we're unfortunately about about to have another schism with competing bands and lawsuits.

What's Next?

This makes me realize what an idiot Sean is. I don't know what's gotten into him, but he's just acting like an idiot. He claims the band broke up, blames Paul (and perhaps the rest of the band) for cancelling a tour and forbids him to access to the band's Facebook page. What an f***ing idiot.
