GOROD GET CYNICAL
I’m not generally a fan of covers unless it’s something kinda outside the box and the band puts their own spin on it, but I am a fan of Gorod and a fan of Cynic, so it’s hard for me to pass harsh judgment on the French prog-metallers cover of Cynic’s “Textures.” It’s hubris of anyone to even dream of living up to the original, but if it exposes any new fans to Cynic, well, neat. You can stream the track here.
Gorod announced back in January that they were working on a new EP which would include one unspecified cover; I’m assuming this is it. Still don’t know a release date for that EP, although I’m assuming if the band is posting music on their MySpace, it has to lay just over the horizon.
