"I always thought that it would be really cool to compose an album of music in the same way that you’d score a movie," says Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor. "In other words, the lyrics and storyline would come first and the music would be almost secondary to the plot. The arrangements are going to be very unconventional, even by our standards."
Tomorrow, Sumerian Records will release the highly anticipated sophomore album from Periphery, the aptly named Periphery II. And if you're not excited enough by that prospect alone, you will be after checking out the killer new music video for the album's lead single, "Make Total Destroy."
One of progressive metal's most highly anticipated summer releases is now streaming in its entirety online. You can listen to all of Periphery's sophomore album, Periphery II, via the YouTube clip below.
Yesterday, Periphery debuted another new track off their upcoming album, Periphery II, on SiriusXM satellite radio. In case you missed it — or just couldn't get enough — the song has made its way online and can be heard in the YouTube clip below.
Earlier today, several websites picked up on the fact that an advertisement running in this month's issue of Revolver featured what appeared to be the official release date from Periphery's new album. The full-page ad also referenced a guest guitar solo from Dream Theater's John Petrucci.
