Season of Mist has issued the following announcement about Cynic releasing the band's "Portal" demos:

"This is some piece of news that CYNIC fans have been dying to read for years: the famous, much sought-after Portal demos will finally be released officially! 17 years after, CYNIC masterminds Paul Masvidal and Sean Reinert decided to share the 10 songs they recorded as Portal with guitarist Jason Gobel, bassist Chris Kringel and female vocalist Aruna Abrams on a worldwide scale."

"I never thought this day would come," Masvidal comments. "A couple demos we'd record after 'Focus', under the name 'Portal', would develop a life of their own, and somehow become part of CYNIC's larger discography. As an artist, it's an amazingly unpredictable journey, to see these quiet labors of love, find their way, in their own time."

"The Portal Tapes" will be released on March 23rd (March 27th in North America), in strictly limited editions of 5000 digipak CDs and 1000 vinyl LPs.
