An album review on Periphery IV: Hail Stan,
the sixth full album from Periphery.
Periphery is an American progressive metal band based in Washington, D.C., formed in 2005. Their musical style has been described as progressive metal, djent, and progressive metalcore. They are considered one of the pioneers of the djent movement within progressive metal.
Periphery IV: Hail Stan is the sixth studio album by American progressive metal band Periphery, released on April 5, 2019.
Overall, Periphery IV: Hail Stan is a heavier album but it shines when the melody hits and unique lyric lines are sang cleanly. The longtime fans will love this latest entry and it might attract a new listener or two with its wild guitar solos. The leaders of the djent movement have delivered exactly what was expected, and the prog-lovers have another album to play all the way through.
