Reunited (and it feels so good!)

I'm always eager to hear new Periphery, be it in the form of an album, and EP, or an "experimental recording" (otherwise known as an "EP with benefits"?) And it's CLEAR that the band has 1-up'd their previous release, as usual. Despite it's brief running time, this new release is structured almost like an epic play, especially since it contains an overture. What is most pleasant about this release, however, is the fact that we get to see not only each member write a piece with a specific style, but this also allows us to go back to their previous albums and see which songs were controlled by which members.

I really don't think there's a single track that I didn't like on this album, I personally would give each song 5/5 stars, but regardless, here's a track-by-track description of what you can look forward to:

Overture- Short and Sweet, with a hint of traditional symphonic overture, dominated by the overall theme music. Having an Overture is a plus for any release, but especially when it's done properly, like this.

The Summer Jam (Jake)- Much more overall melody in this one, reminds me of Scarlet. It's quite a good first full track.

Feed The Ground (Matt)- This was my least favorite of the original previews, but when this track leaked it became one of my favorites (my 3rd favorite to be precise). It really proves that not a ton of screaming is necessary to make something ridiculously heavy and headbanging.

Zero (Misha)- I know a lot of fans wanted more Periphery instrumentals, even though most of them were just obnoxious Anti-Sotelos. Either way, it's nice to hear some Bulb-directed instrumental Periphery, classic technical prog metal.

The Parade of Ashes (Spencer)- Fans waiting for more of Spencer's Endur project will be thrilled to hear this. After 5 seconds I was instantly gripped by the song's calculated and crushing pace. As expected, the song is heavily vocal driven, and man are those vocals good. My 2nd favorite track.

Extraneous (Nolly)- Another lovely instrumental, but this one is craftier and a little more melodic. It's extremely well placed because something about it screams "Penultimate"

Pale Aura (Mark)- Aaand saving the best for last, my favorite track. In Periphery II, when Masamune closed the album, it began with an epic and thought provoking closing tune, that completely switched gear to become a brutal ending. With Pale Aura, it begins with the same epic and thought provoking closing tune but completely switches to ANOTHER even more epic ending. I was absolutely satisfied with the entire album after hearing this one.

I would say I can't wait for Juggernaut, but after hearing this incredible new release, I think I can hold off for a little longer!

my body..

OMG i wanna rub the whole band all over my body! yay!

So sickk

Heard about it, gave the preview a listen, loved it instantly. Definitely surpassed expectations. I think my favorite part is how each member wrote one of the tracks- the variety in styles is apparent. Clear is yet another fantastic production from an outstanding group of extremely talented musicians. Can't wait to see what rolls out next.
