So Periphery takes Metalcore, Djent, Groove, and some elctronic influences, throws them in a blender and creates this masterpeice. The guitar work is phenomenal. The vocalist is insane. His screaming range and singing range ratio is evenly great. The solo section in The Walk makes my hair stand on end every time. Anyone else as addicted as I am?

This album is way out of my comfort zone. I am not normally a fan of his clean singing style but this album is an exception for me. Im normally more of a death metal freak. I feel like they are doing something really original, especially with the whole djent thing.

What the hell is this...?!
At first listening, i couldn't trust my ears...
Metalcore with some us power or maybe groove metal feeling riffs and strange screaming?
Till now, maybe a weak 7 points (it's not good at me, it only means that technically the music is not amateur or bad).
Someone knows which kind of "prog" metal is this - and which influences has got thisn album? Thanks.

I'm gonna go against my inner elitist metal nerd and say that I quite like this album. The vocals, both clean and harsh, are somewhat irritating, as is the metalcore chugging, but when they go into those pointlessley technical riffs, it becomes a very good album.

It's good, part of the collection of mildly metalcore bands that don't really play very metalcore-ish stufff and are really good. btbam, pth, human abstract, these guys.

Tesseract and The Contortionist are pretty similar as well. Same subgenre or whatever. They're both of about the same quality. Definitely check them out sometime.

This band/album is an example of the ever increasing scene of surfacing closet musicians where, technically speaking, they are very, very good, but on a soulful, 'grab-you' level they just don't do it. There were some very catchy, head-bangy parts, but there were also a lot of guitar parts that sounded like a practice session with a drum beat to it...

"Hey guys, I'm going to pratice this huge arpeggio that I've played a thousand times in a room...think you could put a beat to it?"

Indeed, the 'Djentlemen's Club'.

A masterpiece in recording, writing (from a theory standpoint), and a fresh sound. Yea Spencer's vocals are sometimes a little emo sounding but he is ever improving (if you've heard their newer releases or seen them live). The range he covers is absurd. This is simply one of the most unique albums I've ever heard and it is personally one of my all time favorites.

They need to re-record the vocals for this album considering how much the vocalist has improved.

I'd kill for them to rerecord the entire thing in this fashion. The production on "II" was top notch.

Sure, I totally agree that this is a technical masterpiece, and the vocalist's range is amazing. However, (for me at least) the album feels really soulless, and thus, uninteresting. When I listen to music I want to feel emotionally engaged, but when listening to this, I feel like a bystander, just admiring how technically proficient they are.

Your points are perfectly valid and justified. To me it's not about technicality showing. I just love heavily layered chord textures which is the main reason I love a lot of the new school metalcore and djent. It's not as emotionally engaging as 'Still Life' or 'Dead End Kings' or anything like that but that's not what I come to Periphery for. Nothing wrong with your feelings about it at all though. Just providing a bit of an explanation for why I rate it so highly.

Same for me. I'm not criticizing you, just providing my point of view.
