Are there two death metal acts bigger than Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth? I mean, these two entities have been around for a long time and neither have lost a step over the years.

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.
