As Pleasanton, California-based prog metal superforce CYNTHESIS prepares to release ReEvolution — the second full-length in their ongoing trilogy of albums — today the first full single from the album has been released.
The fifth of the ReEvolution‘s seven tracks, the nine minute epic “Persistence Of Visions” bears some of the most extroverted elements on the entire album, its clean, calm intro slowly expanding and building into a dark, brooding movement that eventually snaps, allowing the thunderous and technical prowess of each member of CYNTHESIS‘ individual talents to explode and expose some of the pinnacle moments of the record.

Mixed and co-produced by Forrester Savell and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side, ReEvolution boasts nearly forty-five minutes of some of the most creative and imaginative progressive metal likely to be released this year. Reuniting three of the original members of aggressive/progressive metal kingpins Zero Hour — brothers Jasun and Troy Tipton (guitars and bass, respectively, both also of Abnormal Thought Patterns) and vocalist Erik Rosvold, along with Enchant drummer Sean Flanagan — with CYNTHESIS the members’ ambitious technical prowess blends seamlessly and organically into the grand atmospheres and melodic passages enveloping their approach, demonstrates the more melodic side of Jasun Tipton’s songwriting. Their debut album DeEvolution began the trilogy in April of 2011, and now the middle installment is ready to be unleashed. The ReEvolution chapter tells the story of the shaman, the series’ central character, being sent out to gather more slaves. He comes across a tribe and senses a light within them that triggers a distant memory of his past, making him realize that this is the original tribe he was taken from. He brings them back to the city and encounters what was done to the population and sets them free.
ReEvolution will see release via Sensory on June 4th; preorders for the album can be placed here.
