Who is Periphery?
Periphery is a Progressive Metal band that formed in 2005 in Washington, D.C. Periphery have put out 5 albums before Periphery IV: Hail Stan (math is hard). Periphery left their previous label, Sumerian Records, and started their own record label, 3DOT Recordings, for Periphery IV: Hail Stan.
I've been a massive fan of Birds of Tokyo for years, I first discovered their music back in '07, when they dropped their record Day One with the amazing 'Wayside'; a fan was born the second I heard that song. I followed their music religiously before leaving Australia, even when they continually slid from Alt to Pop Rock and back again. I still loved their music, because no matter what sound they'd use, I could always hear singer Ian Kenny's soul laid out for all to hear.
In today's world, we need this cover more than ever.
I had completely forgotten about this song until the other day, when it randomly came on the radio and I had to stop what I was doing to just listen to it. Then I decided that Green Day's cover of John Lennon's 'Working Class Hero' had to be my next Awesome Covers track.
A case of loving the message, but despising the delivery...
Straight away, I need to say, this is not an extra Track of the Week, but just a review that I feel I needed to do.
A week ago today (4th of March for those of you reading in the future), Asking Alexandria dropped the 3rd single off their upcoming album Like A House On Fire, entitled 'Antisocialist'... and I hate it.
What do you get when you mix the sounds of Bring Me The Horizon and early 30 Seconds to Mars, then add more than a splash of Progressiveness? A Swedish quartet called Solence who are more Alt Metal than Metalcore.
