3 stars Periphery on their second album continued with their heavy, progressive metalcore, or "djent" as some people call it. Call it what you will, it is a decent album. I honestly like to listen to Periphery for their metalcore side instead of their progressive metalcore side but that means I just like the band in a different way than most people do. Think about it. If you're familiar with metalcore from the 2000's you will know that clean singing and growls are common, as are grooves, drop-tuned riffs, and plenty of breakdowns. That's pretty much what you get with Periphery. They also like their weird time signatures and complicated music too. Like a lot of people on this website, myself included.

Listen to Periphery if you like the newer "djent" bands like Animals as Leaders or TesseracT or anything like that. These guys sound nothing like Meshuggah. If you want to get into Periphery, start with Periphery 3. It's way better. This one is still good though.
