Customer Reviews


Since I got the first album as an instrumental (amazing album) I was looking for the interesting polyrhythms, melodic-metal compositions, sophisticated phrasing and amazing playing and initially found the vocals got in the way. After giving this new release a few listens, its become one of my favorites. I still can't stand the death metal screams and cringe every time Spencer does it, but his vocals are otherwise excellent and add to the tunes. Overall the songs are tight, intricate, interesting and melodic in a progressive metal way. There's some good variety here with superb playing, excellent production values and great prog metal grooves. One of my favorite bands of this genre along with Intervals, Animals as Leaders and Protest the Hero.

Periphery grows on you. Trust me.

The first time I heard them I couldn't stand the vocals from Spencer, but after a while it just grows on you. After being a huge fan of their Instrumental album (because of their extreme talents of the instruments) before their actual albums, I decided to give them another chance because I head their Metallica Cover of One and they have become one of my favorite bands, and I'm not even a big metal fan anymore. To top it all off, this album features Guthrie Govan and John Petrucci, two of my favorite guitarists. Pick this up and ignore the people who hate this band. These guys are the new Tool. Seriously.


Everything about this album, from start to finish, is addicting. The lyrics are well written. I can't really put into words how amazing and perfect it is. You'll need to hear it for yourself. It is definitely worth it. ;)

Mansoor had already made a name for himself in the progressive metal community through his production abilities with his project Bulb. He created Periphery as an evolution of his earlier work, taking the music out of the studio and onto the road; he fleshed out the band with a lineup that included guitarists Alex Bois and Jake Bowen, bassist Tom Murphy, drummer Matt Halpern, and, after running through a few...
