I’ve been championing the new double album from the djentlemen in Periphery because I truly dig the new music. This band has grown a lot in a short period of time and I think Juggernaut is the best work of their career. The band released both albums yesterday and also released a pretty rad music video for their track “Alpha.” The video features the band playing with virtual reality. It’s pretty cool. Check it out.

I told you a few day ago that Periphery were streaming the first disc of their new double album Juggernaut. Well, the band is back today to stream the second disc from said album.

Duuuudes. This new Periphery double album Juggernaut is epic. It is definitely the bands magnum opus and I have loved everything I’ve heard thus far. I keep using the term “mature” in reference to this record, but this is literally the only way I can think to describe it. Don’t understand what I mean? How about you check out the bands latest track “Alpha,” which comes off of the appropriately titled Juggernaut: Alpha. Stream it below. Get blown away. Continue reading
Hello, Aftermathtards! How was everyone’s holiday? Lane and I are back and in full effect on this fine day and I thought I would kick it off with a rad new Periphery track. This song is titled “Graveless” and it will stomp a hypothetical mud hole in your arse. Seriously, everything I am hearing off of Periphery‘s forthcoming double album Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega. These dudes have seriously made a name for themselves in the last few years and that name is “Rad.” Check out “Graveless” below. CRANK. Continue reading

Check out “22 Faces” below. Continue reading

Well, I am happy to tell you that the second track the band has released is also superb. Today the band unleashed “The Bad Thing” and you seriously need to take the time to check it out. Stream “The Bad Thing” after the jump. Continue reading
It has already been announced that Periphery will be releasing two new albums, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega, both due out in January. Well, the band is now teasing us with some of their amazing new music. We all saw how incredible and inventive the band can be with their Clear album and I think they have evolved even more with the Juggernaut series. The band is streaming their track “The Scourge” right now and you HAVE to hear this. It’s incredible. Continue reading
Periphery have announced that their upcoming concept album, Juggernaut, will be split into two separate, interconnected albums. The albums will bear the titles Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega and will both released through Sumerian Records on January 27th. Drummer Matt Halpern had the following to say about the forthcoming efforts:
“Given the nature and complexity of the Juggernaut story, we’ve actually done something different and exciting in regards to the release. Juggernaut is a story that is told through our music, and we want our audience to fully digest the whole experience. Because Juggernaut is very detailed and dense in terms of character development, peaks and valleys, climaxes and resolutions we’ve divided the story and music in two, in the form of two separate albums.
Juggernaut: Alpha, the first part of the story, focuses on the back story and character development, while part two/album two, Juggernaut: Omega, focuses on some pretty serious and gut-wrenching events, taking you for a thrill ride along the main character’s complex journey. Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively, allowing the listener to recognize and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas.”
Guitarist Misha Mansoor adds:
“This is new ground and it’s exciting. It’s a way to shake things up. Everyone contributed to everything, even if it wasn’t his instrument. It wasn’t about confrontation. Everyone was focused on creating a really cool album.”
Periphery will be embarking on an early 2015 tour in support of the records with Wovenwar, Thank You Scientist and Nothing More in tow. Those dates can be found after the break and special VIP packages can be found here.
I have really liked Periphery for a while now and I thought their last album was heavier than their previous and now it seems the band is progressing to become even heavier. Spencer Sotelo’s voice is harsher than ever and it sounds incredible. Could this possibly be because of his recent addition to From First To Last? Who knows? But seriously, check out the video after the jump and see what you think. Continue reading
I have a soft spot deep in my heard for good screamo and also for some less than good screamo. I hold Alexisonfire and From Autumn To Ashes in high regard and I also listened to From First To Last quite bit back in the day although not nearly as much as the former two. I was interested to learn that From First To Last were coming out of hibernation and that they would not have Skrillex as their singer. Continue reading
Well, Sumerian Records has always been a slightly-left-of-center-thinking label and I guess the announcement of their new compilation stand by that. Sumerian Records and their artists are putting together a compilation in tribute to Florence + The Machine. Bands like Periphery, Stick To Your Guns and more have signed on for the compilation and a few tracks have been released already. Click on over after the jump to get a taste of Sumerian Ceremonials: Florence + The Sphinx.
Humanity’s Last Breath is definitely on the heavier side of the “djent” things. Keeping it heavy like their brothers Vildhjarta and Meshuggah, the band proves that they can hang and crush the world with their style of metal. HLB has created a new lyric video for the song “Human Swarm”, their first lyric video. The song is off of their self-titled album that released last year on Rogue Records America. Check out the song and leave feedback! Continue reading
All week Veil Of Maya have been teasing that they would release a new track at midnight on October 30th and, right on the dot, they did. The new track is called “Subject Zero” and it destroys. I have stated in the past that I was not a fan of Veil Of Maya before they released their last album Eclipse last year and, after hearing this track, I can say that the band still has my attention. Check out the track after the jump. The song will be available to download on November 11th. Continue reading
If you haven’t followed our coverage on Glass Cloud lately, the band has released two tracks from their new EP Perfect War Forever titled “Trapped Like Rats” and “How To Survive Suicide” and now the band has unleashed their entire new EP upon you all! That’s right, Glass Cloud is currently streaming the EP in full over on Guitar World! So head on over and stream it! It’s pretty radical, if I do say so myself.
You can check out “Trapped Like Rats” after the jump just as a little incentive. Continue reading
