Actually, I think they are completely self-aware. They're a bunch of self-conscious nerds who recognize the inherent silliness of what they do for a living and roll with it.

Funny thing about self-awareness: if you suck, just abandon it.

Amusing, how that works.

I don't really care either way but from what i've told from people who look at interviews and live shows and shit they look pretty unaware of what they are or are doing but idk, i've never seen either of those things

"Suck" is a matter of opinion. Even the worst baller in the NBA is better than 99.9% of the other basketball players in the world. Same goes for Periphery. You might think they suck, but they're a helluva lot better than almost anyone else.

I don't think they take life too seriously, they're not gonna make it out alive anyways

How can you not chuckle at a band that doesn't take itself too seriously to give their songs goofy names?

I named one of my songs after a Dark Souls boss. Hush.

that would be implying that every single talented person is part of a band with recognition

Actually, I think that when a band sucks, that they aren't better than anybody else, but more of a fruitless waste of time.

Funny how that works, huh?

Misha is pretty active on message boards all over the place under his Bulb moniker. Seems like a pretty grounded guy even if he is (understandably) somewhat cocky.

Unless you're a pop diva being promoted by a major label, the modern music scene, particularly the non-mainstream scene, is a meritocracy. Everyone has equal access to the internet and promotion of their music. If you're good (like Keshav Dhar) you get noticed. Periphery built up a reputation almost completely independently which means that they, in fact, are better than most.

No. So much wrong with this. The only meritocratic part is the bands' skills in self-publicity (which often boils down to hard cash)

Sitar, look, I'm sure you have people in your life who love you, and I'm sure you're pretty great person in real life, but I frankly don't care about Periphery's obscure place in history and you're kinda sucking at this.

I'm sure they have a cult following at best, a cult of ex-Jews, freethinking skeptics with internet access and fantasy / japanese novel buffs. But all are entitled to their opinion.

Actually, when you think a band sucks it means you only think a band sucks, and that thinking may not be your strong suit.

Funny how that works.
