At 45 minutes in length spanning 5 songs, The Cyclic Reckoning showcases the band firing on all cylinders. The music on this album is more representative of SUFFERING HOUR as a whole than it ever was on past material, with every member making their presence more known than ever. This record also features the band sacrificing some of their technicality and chaos in favour of more atmospheric passages, as the band envisioned this record to be an unhindered display of negative emotion, seething or sombre. Based around themes of awakening, obsessions, and mental anguish, this is a natural continuation of everything that encompasses the band's ideas on life, death and beyond. This is Suffering Hour at their most honest and fierce.
