I'm in love with the cleaner vocals, they're pretty rare in the scene these day. Fucking dank as always.

THE FREAKIN BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D

Loving this band since 2011

Hey! What happened to the instrumentals for Periphery II??? Come on guys! Djent is the only genre that can do instrumental versions!

My first Djent band and definitely one of the first loves Wink Misha you rock bro Laughing out loud

note to self i miss you terribly. lol.

'Ask me anything' session with Nolly will begin on this Saturday, September 13th. -

Waitin' for Juggernaut!

Cannot wait for Juggernaut!

I think the idea of a Pro-Djent bandwagon is the answer.

I wish I could hear them live, damn, never in my country(

Loved "Scarlet" from your latest album! \m/ \m/

Got to see these guys at the Summer Slaughter Tour. They put on a fucking great show! Although I did get dropped on my head from crowd surfing during Icarus Lives and basically squished to death by big, sweaty men... but it was still worth it! I also got to meet Spencer and took a picture with him. Will never forget that night.

Haha i like that joke he made about "djent" being such a forbidden word when you're in a djent band. I'm tired of this whole anti-djent bandwagon, who cares if you use the word to describe a band? Like I'm not some kind of djent fanatic, but I use the word to describe "djent" bands such as Periphery and Tesseract because it's simply an easy way to generally describe their sound. People act like the fuckn word will bring about the end of the world....

I saw this comment on

And I even don't know what is 'djent' exactly, but it's really pertinent sentence 'what is djent'.

Amazing band, very unique and complete, they got THAT feel you need.
I personaly prefer 'Periphery I', but the new album it's great, damn great, and the Melodic parts are excelents, just keep doing what your doing!

I am really hoping this preorder arrives tomorrow, though I have a feeling it will not, and I will be eagerly checking my mail every day until it comes. What's up dudes, iTunes gets more love than the hard copy preorder custies? I don't know, I'll be a little disappointed if the rest of the world can have "II" before me, and I ordered it when the preorder first became available!!! Don't let me down y'all.....

Slice The Cake is a great band though! Smile

We have already apologized for Slice The Cake on many occasions.

HOKENSTYFE: You have chosen wisely.

the only thing i rly hate about bands like this, r their retarded band names, track/album names... like "slice the cake" or "cold night for alligators".....

Hey guys! Why aren't you playing in the Euroblast Fest in October? I want to go to Germany, but it would be perfect with you guys in it!

Pre-ordered II & 'Intrinsic'(the Contortionist) today.

They are releasing MAKE TOTAL DESTROY from the new album today. Smile
