It's a difficult question.Because Cynic is one of my favorite bands.But sometimes they are more technical than the normal without a reason.So,Isis.
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Listen to all of their albums except their first.Because it's just a sludge metal album.

They're both great, but I have to be in the mood for post when I do Isis. Cynic can be listened to at any time.

Both are incredible bands, but I like ISIS a fair bit more than Cynic.

I've been listening to ISIS for about 5 years, and to Cynic for only 1, so the former has a deeper connection to me than the latter.

I feel like this comparison of equally mertiless and irrelevant new bands has been done already...

Walter does realize that Cynic is exempt from the Good Music Cut-Off Date right? If I could vote it would be for Isis, but both are phenomenal.

Haven't heard Traced in Air yet, but Wavering Radiant would probably destroy it in my mind anyways.
