I would actually agree to that. There are prog elements, but not full on prog.

But I would also say they aren't full on metalcore, or full on djent...even though I hate subgenre's. They are a mix of a lot of stuff.

I agree with SirDrumsalot. If we are throwing tags around, they're not full anything, they're just a really techy metal band with lots of djent, and some metalcore and prog.

Isn't tech-metal a subset of prog?

Well yeah right, i guess i was telling prog and tech apart. Hey honestly, i really feel like Periphery are tech/prog wtv for the most part. Not the prog one might be used to call prog, but they still fit under the tag for numerous reasons so yeah.

I think that songs like Racecar are quite clearly prog. Kofiiing's definition is pretty spot-on and Periphery falls into it even quite comfortably.

yeah i agree they are kinda prog. back when periphery were first getting popular with the kiddies i had this one kid tell me "have you heard any prog? i don't know if you know what that is but this band periphery is one of the best" thats the kind of attitude that makes people who don't like this band, hate this band.

Well I'm sure the tour had less to do with familial relationships. But JP's guest solo though...

It's good, but I honestly prefer Misha's solo on Luck as a Constant. Dem slides...
