The album, which has been titled "Carbon-Based Anatomy" is set to be released on November 15th in North America through Season Of Mist. The effort will contain all new material with frontman Paul Masvidal describing it as "both a philosophical as well as a musical journey, one that begins in the Amazon jungle on the lips of a shamanic wisewoman and ends in outerspace."

The track listing for "Carbon-Based Anatomy" can be found below:

1. Amidst The Coals
2. Carbon-Based Anatomy
3. Bija!

New Hammers of Misfortune album and Cynic too? Life is good! Haven't heard a single thing about where they'll take the direction of the band from the last album but I imagine it will be a step in a new direction. I'm not expecting it to sound like their 91 demo anyway.

This is a band that I really have to sit down and listen to. I saw them live (and even met two of the band members) and they put on a great performance. They are definitely talented and unique.

The only problem ive ever had with Cynic,is the vocals. The robot style crap on thier first album,makes it tough for me to listen to,even though the playing was way ahead of its time. They were about as popular as Athiest back then,which is not very,but way ahead of thier time. Definately headphone music,i'll check it no doubt!

So no lead guitar player on this? I hope its not the same direction as Re-traced with the electronica meets Aeon Spoke vibe. Good to hear Malone is still out there even though he disappeared literally off the face of the earth for awhile.

Well I hope Paul does all the leads - the first thing that got me into Cynic years ago (and lead to me picking this name) was the lead in "Veil of Maya". I'd never heard anyone play guitar remotely like that at the time and you still rarely do.

Oh and for all I know Malone isn't playing on this, Cynic is a Paul and Sean venture now.
