Editorial Reviews

Peripherys much anticipated sophomore full length release shows a band that defies the boundaries of conventionality, ultimately blazing a trail of originality that will send shockwaves throughout the metal world. Founded in 2004 by guitarist, songwriter Misha Bulb Mansoor, Periphery seems to always be drawing from a constant stream of inspiration which is most apparent with this new offering.
The Album is a venerable rollercoaster of beauty, emotion, intensity and overall positive energy.
The must have metal opus of 2012 and a benchmark release for progressive music as a whole.

Despite all the hype and, conversely, all the criticism over the album, I really think the current members of Periphery delivered on an amazing follow-up to the first one, and it follows into logical conclusion what stylistic elements have been developed since their debut dropped. I loved and respected every new direction that the band decided to go, and I don't judge them for "Selling out" or incorporating more of what wasn't fully evident on their debut into what they want to explore musically. It's entirely their artistic prerogative, and I was never the kind of music listener who would expect artists do do things a certain way when I listen to a new album(and judge them if they didn't do it the way I wanted) anyway.

I'm only interested in watching them put themselves in context with their other music, (and other people's music comparable to it) and saying "This is where we decided to go with our sound." Metaphorically speaking. Isn't that how progressive music works? Always pushing the art form in different directions to come up with something different? People who expect too much of the same thing out of a band should just accept the fact that you can't write the exact same album twice.

However, If I must compare Periphery II to their first album, there were three things that I saw in the music that were surprising and exiting to see:
1. Amazing Production: If you thought their first album was sharp, then you'll be stunned how much better the guitars and the Pure-rifferey is. I mean, isn't that what put Periphery on the map the first time around? They've even made their riffs tighter and more percussive by slapping some guitar parts, and one song even goes into eight-string territory with tunings.

I was a fan of Bulb, and I think Misha did a great job on his own. Periphery's first album was decent - but everything was far too mechanical (specifically the drums). I think because this album was the first "group project" for all these members, it has more emotion and thusly has more presence. I still am not a huge fan of Spencer's vocals, but I think they fit well with their unique style. As a musician, I'm glad to see this band go places because they have broken out of the standard "core" and "metal" scenes and have reached across the aisle somewhere between tranquility and brutality. I think this album still will not appeal to the masses, simply because it has screaming, is un-danceable, and has too much going on for the average joe. They don't have any particular sounds that are innovative on their own, but the combination of shred guitar, techno and metal-core combined creates a very unique overall persona. I'm still getting acquainted with the album, but on the whole I think this is one of the best "hybrid metal" cds to be released.

On the note as to my title, if you can't hear Misha's (and the band's) great obsession with video game music and science fiction you ought to pay attention. This is part of the reason why I like this band - because they just don't fake who they are to gain fans. They like Battlestar Galactica, Final Fantasy, and Chrono Trigger and aren't afraid to say so.

I'm going to go against the grain here and say I love Spencer's clean vocals and melodies. It's some of the best singing I've ever heard. What I have a problem with are his dirty vocals. I love metal vocals every which way and something about his growler voice sounds contrived and unemotional. The melody is lacking. So I find myself waiting for the clean vocal sections on this album, and loving them so much that I can look past the growler stuff that isn't quite up to par. Plus the guitars/drums are so effing brilliant that it doesn't even matter.

Been a long-time follower of these guys, and you cannot imagine how happy I am to see that they've put two albums out now. This first was great, but this one somehow tops it. This is an absolutely beautiful album for those who love Periphery or for those in search of new, heavy, technical metal. Such beauties are the album's opening track "Muramasa", "Scarlet", "Ragnorok", and "Erised", to name a few. I seriously encourage the purchase of this album. They deserve every bit of contribution that you can give them.

Periphery keeps growing. This album is an epic masterpiece. Everyone already knows they make amazing music - however, VOCALIST SPENCER REALLY SHINES HERE! The first time I listened to the first Periphery album I really disliked the vocals, because I incorrectly assumed they were teenage angst vocals. They are not. It took a couple listens to realize that like Mike Patton, Spencer was taking the high road and actually singing - and in a higher octave/range than what is typical, which throws some people off. It's not a teenage whiny voice, its a singer with a higher register. Indeed there is no teenage angst sound coming from Spencer at all, but one needs to really listen to understand this. Now with this new album, Spencer has taken it to a whole new level. Songs like Froggin Bullfish and Erised feature so much emotion and range in the vocals that one is reminded of older greats such as Mike Patton. In fact, being as into vocal work in general as I am, In comparison to their first album, I would find an instrumental of this album fairly boring.
