Dude u guys are harsh as hell! Periphery is awesome. straight up.

And Djent is nothing new.. its been around for awhile but its just started to get big in America.

dont hate djent because some scene band sells it out.. its a sick style that still has ALOT of room for experimentation which is why i love it.

just my 2 cents

You could not have missed the point better if you were aiming in the other direction and the point was in a different country altogether.

Worst. Deduction. Ever.

You could not have missed my point if you were swinging a dead cat in a room full of chandeliers.
I was trying to avoid making any sort of contribution to the thread, and instead, poking fun at the fact that you hate the Michael Keene personally and seek to ruin his career by stabbing at his fine workmanship on TNR(The New Raindrop). It's no big whoops, deduction is my strong suit.

I just saw them with Veil of Maya, Animals as Leaders, and Circle of Contempt. Periphery was pretty good but the whole iron maiden, 3 guitar thing is useless. I mean, they have the lead guy playing a seven string doing his thing, another guy playing rhythm, and some other guy doing some minor 2nd riffs over and over and occasionally a litte feel, but that's about it. If they took one guitar out they'd be a lot better.

Except the point isn't a chandelier.

Also;
1: I don't hate MK. I think he's a good dude, a decent producer and an awesome song writer.
2. The New Reign does have terrible production. Like. Bone-shatteringly bad. That doesn't mean I dislike the album. In fact, I love it.
C. My point was that the kid was praising djent but was misguided on several points. The idea of that it can involve "experimentation", the idea of scene kids playing and the idea that it's good.

Eh. I really don't. His cleans are great and some of the higher notes he hits are AWESOME, but his scream is terrible. Egh.
#59
^This. I think he's a better singer than Chris was as far as range, but his scream is nowhere near as good, plus i just don't really like the timbre of his voice as much as Chris, he had some sick jazzy thing going on that I was a fan of.

Haha, maybe it's just me being a generalizing American, but every Canadian "prog" band has the same whiny vocals, similar to The Human Abstract. Hate them so much.

That version of Icarus Lives is the best that I've heard, and definitely has less of the "Canadian voice" I'm talking about.

That's their original vocalist, Casey Sabol. Easily the best they've had. I love his voice so much.

I don't think their music is suited for clean vocals at all.

The only cleans I've ever liked in this band were Chris's in Light. The part where it's like

REEEEEEEETURN FROOOOM THE FAAAAAAAAALLLL

was amazing. I donno how much I like Casey, maybe because i started listening to them when they had no vocalist. Then they got Chris and I thought he ruled. What happened to Chris, anyways?

Holy ****. I just randomly came across this band, and just after hearing two songs "Icarus Lives" and "Light", and can say that I'm definitely becoming a fan.

So from what I've read, the vocalist on Icarus Lives, isn't the same vocalist as "Light", the one on their myspace?...right?

That depends which Icarus Lives you've heard. The one with the current singer's been released on some sites, but you PROBABLY heard the one with Casey, their original (and best) singer.

They're all just trying to be Geddy Lee.

Yeah, I heard the one with Casey... but I do like their newest vocalist.

Also, what is this? It has a bunch of random tracks and "test" tracks and weird stuff:
http://btjunkie.org/torrent/Periphery-Periphery-2008/4358d309768b1b480a13ff6fc08c4a015b257182b334

I read there just releasing their debut album.. so this can't be it, but it's them.

edit:
I downloaded it... my god are they funny. Songs like "I lost my lunch in my pants" and "inertia ass"... and then they get all djent.

^Just another compilation of random demos. Bulb just does that every now and again, puts out enough myspace tracks for people to put them together into a download package.
Can't believe they haven't even released an album yet, and they're signed to Sumerian and doing these huge tours. Not cool.
Also, both the new vocalists fit like a size 2 sneaker would on Cthulhu. The problem with being the band who practically invented this style, is that by now, they just sound like everyone else who's gotten their act together and actually put out an album. It's like Scar Symmetry's vocalist lost his decent harsh range, joined Meshuggah and then Tosin Abasi started writing the drums instead of Tomas Haake.

I'm a big fan of this band... I'd literally scream like a little girl if they came to town.

Seriously though, can't wait for their debut to be released. Although Chris grew on me, I'll probably get used to Spencer's screams.
