Periphery, have announced that they will be releasing their seventh album on March 10th. The record, which will be released via their own 3DOT Recordings, is titled ‘Periphery V: Djent is Not a Genre’.
The title makes reference to the ‘not a genre’ of metal that the band were largely credited for pioneering, as well as an allusion to the most common metal message board refrains of the 2010s.
The band will be releasing the first two singles from the record, titled ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Zagreus’, this Thursday (January 12th) alongside pre-orders. In addition to the announcement, they have released the cover art which can be seen below.
