    “These demos are like sketches of young, aspiring artists”, Cynic’s Paul Masvidal comments. “Although I can hear in them, some fragment of my playing now".
    'Uroboric Forms' includes demos that Cynic recorded from 1988 through 1992. The '88 demo glances back at their earliest days, when the band was still in its rawest form. It was recorded on a boom box while Masvidal and drummer Sean Reinert were high school classmates. Their next demo channeled enough teenage rage to kick up a buzz among fellow South Beach metalheads, but by 1991, Cynic had elevated their technical skills to such death-defying heights, that the ‘91 recordings blew away the suits at Roadrunner Records.
    "Hearing these demos is akin to looking at old pictures of yourself or reading historical diary entries and realizing you’re a different person now", Masvidal says. "There’s an earnestness in these recordings that’s particular to a space and time, and it will never happen again. We now have evidence exposing the roots of an artist’s journey and there’s nowhere to hide.”

    That’s the beauty of it.
