Biography

Bethesda, Maryland (2005 – present)

Periphery is an American band from Bethesda, Maryland, formed in 2005. Periphery is one of the pioneers of the djent[/ movement.

History
Formation and Lineup Changes (2005 - 2009)
Periphery was formed by guitarist Misha Mansoor in 2005. He slowly gained a reputation on the Internet, primarily via a regularly-updated Soundclick account,
Meshuggah and John Petrucci forums, and the sevenstring.org message boards. Before and during Periphery’s tenure in the metal scene, Mansoor developed a reputation for doing his own audio production, the majority of which was performed with a home computer and a Pod XT during this period. Mansoor has continued to update his personal project, Bulb, which preceded Periphery, often transferring songs between the two projects. Mansoor continues to be involved in a number of other musical projects.

Between 2005 and 2009, Periphery worked with vocalists Jake Veredika, Casey Sabol and Chris Barretto, gradually moving from a nu metal-influenced sound to a more experimental style, with a focus on innovative production. In 2009, the band announced via their MySpace blog that they had signed a one record deal with Sumerian Records, on which they would release their debut full-length album.

Periphery has toured extensively since 2008, supporting artists including DevilDriver, Emmure, Veil of Maya, Animals as Leaders, God Forbid, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Fear Factory.

    It's a double concept album, so yeah It's very likely that everyone will refer to both albums as just "Juggernaut" in the future. I think of it as their third album, and their next will be the fourth

    I don't know if this is weird, but does anyone else think of Juggernaut as being ONE album. I know they're packaged as two; but I see the two parts as being two halves of one unit. I just think it's odd to consider Alpha and Omega to be their third and fourth albums respectively. I just think of Juggernaut as ONE album. Does anyone else think this way too?

    I like Alpha lot more than Omega, but both are pretty good albums.

    What, their new stuff is "poppy" only on the surface, everything else about it is absolutely more insane. Get some better attention span people.

    I'll agree on the "poppier and cheesier" front, though it doesn't bother me as much. I'd like to see a balance between power melodic cleans and more of his moody stuff from Periphery I, because I really do like Periphery I a lot despite its weaknesses. We'll see where they go anyways, Periphery isn't a band that sticks in one place too long!

    If anyone is interested, I have re-uploaded Periphery's old demo tape collection, which contains 100 songs. This was in circulation before the band had a record deal and there's a lot of great songs there that still havent seen the light of day. They're mostly instrumental, but some feature the old vocalists Jake, Casey and Chris. Download link: http://www.filedropper.com/showdownload.php/demos2004-2008

    I like the vocals on the new stuff! Spencer knows how to scream and he sings good on clean vocals

    Okay so as disappointed as I have been with a lot of the new stuff, I think I've come to the conclusion that listening to Stranger Things on repeat for an hour would be far more enjoyable than a lot of albums, so fair enough. You win this round, Peripherins.

    His growling was weak on the first album, he's improved on that front. But his cleans have gone from moody and atmospheric to nasal and cheesy. His range has definitely improved, and there is definitely a lot of stuff on the newer albums I do enjoy, but he sounds so nasal a lot of the time and the vocal melodies themselves are a lot poppier and cheesier.
