Original Story:

Pioneering djent outfit Periphery have launched a pair of new singles online. Both tracks are taken from the band’s forthcoming fifth studio album, “Periphery V: Djent Is Not A Genre“, which they will have out on March 10th via their own 3DOT Recordings.

Below you can take in the new tracks “Wildfire” (featuring guest sax from Jørgen Munkeby of Shining) & “Zagreus” from that outing, with the title of the latter being a nod to the hit video game ‘Hades.

Guitarist Mark Holcomb commented of the record:

“We spent more time on Periphery V than any other release in our history. We challenged and pushed ourselves harder, and along the way we grew even closer as a band. We are so proud of the final results! I also wanted to mention how exceedingly grateful we are to our fans for being so patient in waiting for this record. We wanted to show our appreciation by giving you two songs today instead of one. We have a very busy 2023 and 2024 planned so we’ll see you on the road!”

Fellow guitarist Misha Mansoor offered:

“I’m really proud of the material and it was certainly a labor of love and a tough album to make. The feeling that we were going to have to give up because it kept taking so long was so overwhelming at times, that to not just overcome it, but to feel so proud of this album has really galvanized us as a band in a way that I don’t think any other experience could have.”

The band self-produced the effort, with bassist Adam “Nolly” Getgood reprising his studio role on the record, while also taking on the mixing duties.
