Periphery

Biography

Periphery started in 2005 as the recording project of guitarist and producer Misha Mansoor. Mansoor, who had made a name for himself in the progressive metal community through his production abilities with his project, Bulb, created the band as an evolution of his earlier works, taking the music out of the studio and onto the road, fleshing out the band with a lineup that includes guitarists Alex Bois and Jake Bowen, bassist Tom Murphy, drummer Matt Halpern, and, after running through a few vocalists, singer Spencer Sotelo. With a sound that pushes at the boundaries of progressive metal, Periphery are at the forefront of the “djent” movement, utilizing detuned, extended range instruments to create a sound that’s as technically dizzying as it is heavy, joining in with the growing ranks of bands that are taking the framework laid down by bands like Meshuggah and running wild with it. Periphery released their self-titled debut in 2010 on Sumerian, then quickly went out on the road, touring the U.S. and Canada, as well as making stops in Australia and the U.K. The following year, the band released their first EP, Icarus. .
