Focus is the debut studio album by Cynic, released September 14, 1993 through Roadrunner Records. A remastered version of the album was released in 2004. After years of being hailed as a promising act in Florida's death metal scene, Cynic recorded Focus. The result was an album combining their love of death metal with other influences, notably jazz. Instead of choosing the brutal and hard-hitting approach to metal like most of their contemporaries, Focus takes an experimental stance to music. Focus - Cynic.

Recording information: Recorded and mixed at Morrisound Recording, Tampa, Florida. Their groundbreaking 1993 debut Focus meshed metal and jazz on an unprecedented scale, and explored the creative possibilities of this strange musical hybrid to a degree which has yet to be equaled. For Cynic, the traditional framework of death metal songwriting served as a mere foundation over which the band would take flight, yielding moments of mind-blowing diversity and inspiration and, occasionally, dumbfounded confusion on multi-faceted tracks like Veil of the Maya, I'm But a Wave To. and Textures.

Cynic were a death metal band from Florida who emerged in the wave of death metal there in the late 80s. They only ever released this one album and a number of demos, though the members are still active in many different usually brilliant projects today. Their earlier demos were more straight-up thrashy death metal, but by the time they released Focus, they had taken great influence from fellow Floridian band Atheist's death-jazz style, and developed it further. The result was what is often considered a masterpiece of technical music, and an underground legend
