Periphery: A Window To The Future?

US tech metal heavyweights Periphery have released an “experimental” new album for streaming online.

Clear is not to be seen as an official, full-length follow-up to last year’s Periphery III: This Time It’s Personal, but rather a stopgap release as the band prepare for album number three.

Clear is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band,” says 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. 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 third 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.”
