Periphery came to town this week in the form of the Sonic Unrest Tour, hot off their recent release of Periphery III: Select Difficulty. For those unfamiliar, Periphery is a progressive metal/djent band who have been tearing up the metal scene since their debut in 2010 and have been cranking out albums ever since. Periphery III: Select Difficulty came to us just a month before the Boston show, the follow-up to 2015’s dual album and tour Juggernaut: Alpha & Omega. The new album, dense with the familiar heavy riffage of Periphery’s usual style, expands on the band members strengths without being overly experimental this time around – but the result is nothing but another great album from the group.
A major rock festival has been teased in the Greater New England area for years now. The rumors have finally come to fruition thanks to AEG Live. AEG has teamed up with Foxwoods Resort Casino to bring the first – of hopefully many – Revolution Rock Festival. They have announced a line-up of heavy hitters in the rock and metal genres that are sure to draw a massive crowd when the event lands in Connecticut on September 17th. We’re interested in seeing how the success of the event plays out, and what it could mean for future iterations of the festival.
