Periphery announced the March 10 release of Periphery V: Djent is Not A Genre last month, releasing two singles simultaneously: “Wildfire” (watch the video here) and “Zagreus.” Reaction to the ferocious tracks was equally fiery, with Consequence saying the songs “boast all the intricacies and prog workouts” the band’s “fans have come to adore,” while Revolver described the new music as “crushing and catchy.” A guitar playthrough for “Zagreus” arrived a week later, which can be viewed here.
The 9-song collection was produced by the band, with Adam “Nolly” Getgood contributing bass across the album. Jørgen Munkeby performs a saxophone solo on “Wildfire.”
Periphery V: Djent is Not a Genre pre-orders are available now (http://lnk.to/djentisnotagenre), with the album available via several limited-edition vinyl variants, CD, cassette and digitally.
