Yes aside from a couple riffs they sound a lot different than Meshuggah.
Meshuggah would never write songs like Erised or Scarlet.

Much improved over the complete chug-fest debut I say. Not perfect, I should probably drop it to a 3.5, but I love "Ragnarok" and "Erised" too much to do it right now.

Still unsure of my final rating. This album reminds me of the evolution of metal. We all would agree that Ozzy, Dio, Judas Priest, Megadeath are all metal. While Periphery has no reason to be in that list, or even comparable, they seem to have been heavily inspired by the combination of aggressive music and actual singing.

Regardless if you judge them by their guitar tone/djentness, or "emo/linkin park" vocals they are proficient at what they do. They write fun, aggressive music. It can be the soundtrack to just about anything, because it doesn't take itself too seriously. My five year old bobs his head to this. They have done something right.

Excellent review, Joe. Have this on iTunes but I've got to revisit the predecessor and the EP before listening to that.

I like the vocal melodies, I know they get a little off track sometimes but it's just fun to hear him really making an effort to make his performance as interesting as possible.

most melodies are good but after like 10 listens the vocals become kind of annoying, considering hes singing practically the whole damn time.

The Gods Must Be Crazy is one of my favourites off the album, other than that I agree with most of this review

First impression of this after just one listen was this is slightly better than the first album. Should be interesting to see if I like it more or less w/ time

this album is really good. the harsh vocals in a few segments are absolutely killer! extremely pissed off sounding, reminds me of Beheading of a King in a few ways but obviously 2 different sounding screamers.
