Matt Lynch – Cynic – Humanoid – Exclusive Drum Play-through

Some words from the new Cynic drummer, Matt Lynch; “I’m very excited to release the drum play-through for “Humanoid!” This is the first Cynic release since I joined the group. So far it’s been really fun working on music with Paul Masvidal and Sean Malone, and I look forward to releasing more of these videos in the near future.

The drums in this video are slightly different from the studio version in that I’ve added a few extra fills as well as off-the-cuff variations for a more live oriented performance. Thanks for watching!”
