Two of 2015’s most-anticipated albums come out next week, and they happen to be by the same band, Periphery. And while you’ve gotten a chance to hear several songs from each album, thanks to Loudwire, you can now stream the entire Juggernaut: Alpha album. The 41-minute first half of the Juggernaut album series jacknives through genres, with some quiet parts being more cinematic and ambient, but songs like “MK Ultra” find the band at their heaviest (and also jazziest!). Anyone that’s still referring to Periphery as a “djent” band should know that they’ve moved on. They’re swinging for the fences with these two albums, and it shows. Now that you’ve gotten a chance to hear “The Scourge,” “22 Faces” and the title track, now you can hear the entire album as the band intended.
Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega will be released on Sumerian Records on January 27th, and can be preordered here.
