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.

    Periphery II is such an immensely dense album. I'm amazed.

    For me, these guys just keep improving. I like some parts on P1, and PII has been growing on me quite a bit, but Clear is just perfect. The variety is fantastic. I hope they continue in that direction.

    I thought P1 was the greatest thing ever when it first came out. Compared musically with their newer stuff, it still stands strong and some moments are among the best stuff they've done, but I agree that P2 is just so much more pleasing quality wise, and also vocal wise although I surprisingly have always liked his vocals on P1 quite a bit

    I agree as well. P1 is alright, but Clear was just so much better in terms of production value and variety, and P2 is just straight up timeless and I can listen to it a thousand times and not get tired of it because it's just that good.
