  • On the first listening this pearl was quite a surprise `cause I expected a “real” Cynic-sequel with those awesome jazzmetal fusion. But as I took my time I realised that Gordian Knot IS the real sequel, for the fusion tends to become less metal but more jazzy, serene, gloomy, at times frolic and relaxed but always in the breathtaking musical alloy that the ex-Cynics Jason Malone and Sean Reinert have the faith and feeling for. Indian style rhythms blend with keyboards, playful strings intermingle with the everflowing strokes and perfect beats of the drums which are wellplaced and transparent. Plus there are great guest-musicians from Dream Theater, Watchtower and King Crimson. Ahamkara, redemption`s way…
