Review: PERIPHERY – ‘IV: Hail Stan’ [Official Video]

Words By: Masen Smith

For nearly a decade, DC prog metallers and forerunners of Djent; Periphery have been churning out album after album of tasty riffs and inventive songwriting. Few bands in the genre have been able to continuously and fluidly evolve for this long, constantly leaving fans guessing on which direction they’ll take next.
