At over two hours and twenty-five minutes in length, it is currently the longest album of the band's career as well as their most polarizing in terms of critical reception. The album took three years to write and six months to record, mix, and master all at Steve Austin's self run studio Austin Enterprise. The album, for the most part, was inspired by a period of time when Austin was stuck in his home due to a severe snow storm with his family.
According to Austin, the biggest inspiration for him to do a two-hour double disc album was in attempt to progress from the "really fast and stripped down" In the Eyes of God.
Each track on the album was intentionally mixed so that there was a continuous flow between one track to the next, this was done in attempt to give the album a tone similar to that of a movie soundtrack. Upon its initial release inSadness Will Prevail received mixed critical reception. William York, of allmusicgave the record two and a half stars out of five, questioning the album's low-end lacking mixing and critiquing what he refers to as "the abundance of filler on [the] two discs".
Temin of Blistering. Maelstrom Zine's Roberto Martinelli, on the other hand, praised the album and called it the group's "most diverse and complete effort". All tracks are written by Steve Austin.
