I am vaguely aware from my son and his friends that various metal styles, including so-called "Djent", divide opinion and that there are purists who abhor Periphery. Reminds me of when I was 16. :)

So let me declare that I don't give a monkey's about such stylistic debates and this will be a review on musical merits alone.

As a first release (that I'm aware of), this is a very worthy album which shows lots of promise. Today, high levels of musicianship are a given in heavy metal but, alas, originality is often not. Periphery seem to be a far less bounded by stylistic "purism" and keen to experiment, and it is clear that there is a coherence to their choice of influences, which seem to include elements of metal bands like Meshuggah, Drum and Bass (or whtever it is called these days), Allan Holdsworth, late incarnation King Crimson, some Dream Theater, contemporary ambient music, and even pop and "Nu-Metal" (or whatever that is called these days).

This may be where they lose many mainstream metal fans, and other musically less adventurous souls.

The group use three guitarists and do so to good effect, with their parts carefully orchestrated to provide a rich soundscape and "big" chords (i.e., not just 5th "power" chords). The effect is sometimes reminiscent of Allan Holdsworth chordal progressions, sometimes "Signals"-period Rush. Sometimes neither: the more industrial sections remind me of some of the more chaotic late period King Crimson, or even Prodigy. The singer's melodies are all strong and show harmonic ambition, including melodic minor modes, with an incredible range.

If you love what I call technical metal, then this is for you. Not only is it technically brilliant, it is very melodic too. If you like stuff like Strapping Young Lad, Meshuggah, Fear Factory, but want something a bit more extreme, then this is perfect. I will be looking to purchase their second album very soon purely on the strength of this one.

Such a great album, I love Periphery's Djent-based progressive metal, and they can't go 2 bars without adding some form of technical Obscenity in!

I'd seen Periphery's self titled album featured heavily throughout my regular Fixt emails, in the charts on iTunes as well as in Metal Hammer magazine but unfortunately gave them no thought until I heard the song Icarus Lives! on YouTube. The surprisingly funky yet heavy riffing, insane drumming and wonderfully diverse singing range hooked me instantly and before long I was listening to their song Buttersnips also. Upon hearing both songs, I quickly decided to purchase their full length album, hoping that the rest of the album would possess the same qualities that made me fall in love with the previously mentioned songs. After listening to the album, I was pleased to find out it did. The album also threw a couple of unexpected curve balls at me such as the much more melodic and down to earth song Jetpacks Was Yes!, the very mellow section in Insomnia and the comedic outro to Icarus Lives! This album just offers so many musical high points that I love. Being a fan of bands such as Dillinger Escape Plan, Between the Buried & Me, SikTh and other similar bands, I accepted Periphery with open arms. I strongly recommend this CD to anyone who likes their progressive metal.

The band has been around since early 2004 and have gone through a line up change with the singer before the release of their self titled album. This release I would define as a brutal musical masterpiece and defiantly a must for fans of Between The Buried and Me, Skith and Meshuggah.

The music combines complex rhythms with a brutal progress metal sound with the added thrashing and shredding of the guitars bringing the album to its definitive sound. The vocals are strong throughout every song and although took a couple of listens to the album to appreciate the quality of musicianship the vocals are definitely a strength but like I said, it does take a while to get used to them. The album also presents a mix of electronic samples but composed with outstanding brutal riffs that again contribute to the definitive sound that is Periphery.

This release is one of the best instrumentally and musicianship that I've heard in a long time from the progress metal scene and honestly cannot for the band to tour and hear more from brutal progressive metallers Periphery!!

A must for fans of Between The Buried and Me, Skith and Meshuggah.

I've been following Periphery for about 3-4 years and love everything that they and their founder Misha 'Bulb' Mansoor have done since he first started posting clips online and the long-awaited album is no exception. All the genius I've loved plus guest appearances from Jeff Loomis of Nevermore and Adam 'Nolly' Getgood of Red Seas Fire who are both amazing in their own right and we have pretty much my perfect album. Everything on this record is incredible including the production, which in itself is amazing as it was all recorded and mixed by Bulb... on his computer in his bedroom! If you like Meshuggah, Between The Buried and Me, TesseracT or any of the bands from the flourishing 'djent' movement then chances are you'll not only like this album, you've already heard of them and love them.
