Nice review, but literally Meshuggah should not be mentioned in anything having to do with Periphery, unless you're talking about how vastly different the vocals and song structure are.



If I heard Meshuggah write a song anywhere near the notes and structure of a Periphery song then it'd be Meshuggah's biggest advancement since they played the second note of their first album.

Wow, are you dumb? Not because you don't like meshuggah but you really think Meshuggah has nothing to do with Periphery?

Old Meshuggah is gold, I'll admit to that. But then they got fuckin' lazy.



And I reinforce.



FUCKIN' LAZY.



Yeah, good riffs, but all the great stuff about their early stuff is completely gone. Constant djenty riffs, sure... but a whole album of that. Lazy.

And periphery hasn't done the same exact thing on periphery II? Can't vouch for this but your argument is dumb. Not only that but we're not talking about if you like Meshuggah or not. You're denying they have anything to do with Periphery which is completely untrue.

A cover.



Where the instruments are spot on.



But Periphery's vocalist absolutely blows compared to Meshuggah's.



And doesn't show anything about song structure, cuz. it. is. a. cover.

Not saying there's no influence, but Meshuggah hasn't done much of anything other than completely

change for worse. At least Periphery isn't just writing one type of song over the course of a whole

album. All Meshuggah is interested in are Polyrhythms and nothing else.



If they actual hit a scale, I think the Earth might fuckin' explode.

Man, when people bring the notion that all Meshuggah does is make one song over and over again it makes me think they have no idea what Meshuggah is about. Clear as day that is exactly what this is.

Wasn't stating literally that it's one song over and over. One STYLE of song.
