I'm new to this whole style of music known as 'Djent', I heard about Periphery from a friend who saw them on tour with Dream Theater. Since I got the album its been on repeat, the raw power that comes from the music is mind blowing, the technical abilities of the musicians is unbelievable.

Spencer Sotelo is the vocalist of Periphery, he has the voice of an angel and can still pull of screams better than most I've ever heard. He is describes on the album as having a "voice goes up like an angel... And down like a wounded ox..." The lyrics keep you drawn in if the instrumentals aren't good enough for you!
Overall Impression — 10
In my opinion Periphery is one of the best albums I own at the minute, Its been a while since I've been able to have a CD on repeat. From start to finish every song keeps you wondering what will happen next. I love how technical and how precise the guitar playing is and how awesome the drums sound. The whole album is just amazing, I'm struggling to find anything wrong with it at the moment.
