Adam "Nolly" Getgood
Periphery by far is one of my favorite modern bands. To start the brilliance of Matt Halpern and his polyrhythmic magic fused with the mix of three brilliant guitarist makes for a great progressive metal recipe.
The band released "Periphery II" in July and it is a stunning masterpiece of many metal styles. The centerpiece of the album despite all the songs being brilliant is "Make Total Destroy". This song is a highlight of what makes this band so great.
Its technically brilliant guitars and strange beats mixed with pure in your face lyrics and harmony will crack you right between the eyes.
The live show brings all these things and more. I was literally exhausted in a very good way. This is an album that is grabbing for all true metal heads. I listen to it at least three times per week.
Get the album and go check them out. You will not be disappointed.
