Periphery Unleash ‘Clear’ Recordings in Full
Progressive djent metal act Periphery have been working on their ‘Clear’ recording for quite some time, and finally, two weeks before its official release, Periphery are now streaming the record in full.
Hailing from Bethesda, Md., Periphery have soared from obscurity to popularity in a relatively short period of time. They released their self-titled studio debut in 2010, only to grab even more success in 2012 with ‘Periphery II: This Time It’s Personal.’ With excitement for the band at an all-time high, Periphery’s ‘Clear’ helps kick off 2014 with some quality tunes.
“’Clear’ is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band,” explains guitarist Misha Mansoor. “It’s rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music. With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound.
Mansoor continues, “Every track also contains a melodic theme established in ‘Clear'(s) intro track “Overture” this common thread links all of the songs together, even though they all sound wildly different. ‘Clear’ shouldn’t be confused with our new 3rd full-length album that we’re currently working on, nor should it be considered an EP as it rides somewhere in-between clocking in at 30 minutes. Enjoy!”
