Debut album of this brazilian Progressive Metal endeavour. Heavy songs, strong melodies, intense instrumentals in progressive roots; The concept behind this album portrays the human cyclic condition in its countless manifestations.
"Cyclings is about the true cyclical nature that lies in every thought and every action we take. Each step you are following someone else's. You are trapped in a downward spiral until you break the veil. We're not just humans, earthlings. We're cyclings, inhabitants of the Cycle."
