Anger comes in many forms. There’s the beastly and primitive blind rage, an all-consuming anger that desires to leave nothing but devastation in its wake. There’s the anger that comes from toxic grief, a bitter, melancholic bile that fury emerges to swallow down. Then there’s the cold, calculating anger, one that results from mulling over misgivings to the point of glacially calamitous retribution. The latter is the part of the deliberate passion with which trash metal band Sylosis approaches their fifth and latest album, “Cycle of Suffering.” Commanding and all-encompassing, “Cycle of Suffering” is an unforgiving demand for introspection among untempered ferocity that embarks on an ambitious and emotional exploration of humanity’s inability to escape perpetual darkness.
