For the first time ever, longtime Cynic musicians Paul Masvidal and Sean Reinert have discussed their sexuality in a public forum. In a new interview, Masvidal and Reinert publicly come out as being gay while discussing the hardships of homosexuality in the world of metal.
Cynic's Paul Masvidal was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. The guitarist-vocalist spoke about the band's new album, 'Kindly Bent To Free Us,' as also opened up about his upbringing, influences and love of science fiction. If you missed Jackie’s show, here’s her full interview with Cynic's Paul Masvidal.
Today (Feb. 18), Cynic released their long-awaited third album, 'Kindly Bent To Free Us.' The record is somewhat of a departure from Cynic's classic progressive tech-death style into more of an experimental rock realm, with frontman Paul Masvidal delivering perhaps his most spiritually based lyrical work to date.
Cynic will release their highly anticipated third full-length album, 'Kindly Bent to Free Us,' on Feb. 18. Any hardcore fan of the progressive pioneers will want to analyze every section written by frontman Paul Masvidal, drummer Sean Reinert and Sean Malone, so we interviewed Masvidal for a deeper look into the album and Cynic itself.
