    The name refers to a theory on cyclical mass extinctions of life on Earth as a result from impacts event (comets or asteroids).

    Moshville Times
    "Ouroboros Stirs is both interesting and accomplished in equal measure, even more so when you consider it’s a debut album"

    Insane Voices Labirynth (Italian): 90/100
    (translation) "they have taste in composition, their Black/Death is absolutely not a mere copy/paste of what has been heard so far [...] and this is a great merit."

    MetalEyes IYE (Italian): 8/10
    (translation) "Ouroboros Stirs grows with plays so as to metabolize the various nuances of which it is composed."

    Battle Helm Magazine: 4/5
    "A really strong blackened death metal album that was everything I wished for it to be."

    World Of Metal (Portuguese): 8.5/10
    (translation) "It's an album to absorb slowly and with growing interest."

    Wonderbox Metal
    "The Shiva Hypothesis are not a band that are content with taking the easy route, and seemingly prefer to push themselves wherever they can. [...] A recommended listen."

    Fish Tailed Goat
    "Ouroboros Stirs is an excellent album and while the music and vocals reference many great bands, The Shiva Hypothesis nevertheless draw these myriad points into a distinctive sound of their own."
