Search Results for "Periphery"

Today is the big release day for one of the most anticipated (and rightly so) albums of the year, the hysterically titled Hail Stan, by Periphery. In a sense, it is a pretty perfect name for an album in these days when stan culture is really off the charts bonkers and semi-satanic half the time. It also happens to feature some of the progressive metalcore band’s heaviest and most elaborate work. The Juggernaut era is hard to top for me but this new record is phenomenal.

Periphery manage to give themselves a pat on the back via obviously pure love of the artform, give the fans what they want and STILL challenge them. Has the pact between art and artist, stan and musician ever been more blurred? The beauty of this record is it reminds us all we are fans at heart. And lucky to be alive.

It is only 1/4 of the way through the year but I know that this and the Venom Prison record are gonna be very hard to dislodge from my top ten of 2019. The hype is real. If nothing else, you owe it to yourself to check out the massive opening track ‘Reptile” today, which is one of the most ambitious moments from the band to date.

Periphery “The Bad Thing” for you to hear now.

New Periphery song “The Bad Thing” is a heavy and complex new number, a sick mix with a great sense of guitar and vocal placement. Kudos on the great vocal performance as well. The band are releasing two albums of intricate material that seems like their biggest statement yet. That is up to each listener perhaps and how they take the music with them and experience it, but from the new songs compared to the relatively limited amount of Periphery I’ve heard it seems like they are really pushing themselves. Now go on tour with Wings Denied and Torrential Downpour, guys. Do it!!!

Check out the new song HERE.

 Periphery are the good thing for you to hear now.

Wovenwar and Periphery tour has me really stoked

This morning’s excitement is that my girlfriend’s daughter just got a Charizard Pokemon card. It’s a mega and has a crimson dive attack for 300 damage. In other news, I hope you are all as stoked as I am for the news that Wovenwar are touring with new school prog-core thrillers Periphery. I have been really late on the Periphery game as the more technical stuff I am into usually has gruffer vocals, but I’m really enjoying “The Scourge” and love the shit out of the Wovenwar debut. It is stunning what Wovenwar managed to accomplish on that record during a time when most bands would have buckled completely (I am talking, of course, about the Tim Lambesis scandal).

Wovenwar have been making new converts despite the cleaner vocal sound and I implore people to really give the band a shot. Tour dates and a menacing Charizard after the jump HERE.

Periphery premiere “The Scourge,” a new song from the highly anticipated dual album releases, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega, via Revolver HERE.

“After a year of hard work on our two new albums, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega we’re excited to be able to share the first look at music from either album,” said guitar player Mark Holcomb. “‘The Scourge’ shows off a darker, more brooding side of the first album, Alpha, and it touches on some of the melodic and lyrical themes referenced throughout the two albums. Enjoy!”

Summer_SlaughterA black stampede raged through Times Square, as hundreds of metalheads poured into the Best Buy Theater for New York City’s stop on The Summer Slaughter Tour. Eleven bands performed nine hours of chest-rattling metal for the most extreme night of the year. I was front and center for the brunt of it and let me tell you cretins: this show was every bit as intense as it was billed. Armed with my camera, press pass, iPhone, cigarettes, and scores of power backups, I was ready for journalistic war. And I fucking conquered.   Click here for the full spread of pictures and commentary.

Summer Slaughter Tour Line Up Announced

Posted by NichTheHair on Friday, March 22, 2013 at 12:15 PM (PST)

599614_502962246408433_494654365_nThe line up for the annual Summer Slaughter Tour was announced today and it is fierce. The Dillinger Escape Plan headlines the show, with direct support from Animals As Leaders, Periphery, and Norma Jean. There’s also four more bands, making this tour even more insanely aggressive. Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, Revocation, and Aeon will round out the roster.

There’s still another being added, by way of a fan voting process. So we now have a nine band touring tornado on the precipice of destroying every city it touches down in. Sumer Slaughter indeed. No dates have been announced yet and we will surely have more on that later.

Go vote for the opening band here, maybe vote for Abiotic. or Vektor. Tough call.

Show Review: Deftones and Periphery-New York, NY – March 9, 2013

Posted by NichTheHair on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 5:22 AM (PST)

Deftones

Greetings Cretins.

As I write to you today, my aching body is still reminded of the physical exertion it underwent to bring you this review. Yes darlings, I will gladly step into a sold out, full-floor, raging mosh pit to bring you a fresh feast of performance ferocity for your eyes to enjoy. Deftones had to reschedule this show due to Slurricane Sandy, so I was not surprised that the show was complete madness. Even though Washington DC’s Periphery successfully prefaced the pandemonium with their precision and poise, the people could not be pacified. The crowd wanted their long overdue headliner- and boy howdy, did they get it!
