I liked "The Parade of Ashes"... Mostly because its located after the most djent-y song of the bunch. Pretty average EP, I'll probably only listen to 2 of the songs more than once, whereas I liked most of PII.

"But I don't think we should have expected anything different, since the group has advertised it as such since this thing was announced in the first place"

Im pretty sure that the band did not advertise this EP as a hit or miss if thats what your referring to.

Pale Aura is definitely the standout of the lot. Pretty damn sweet tune.

Wogger- my point is that Periphery made it clear (hehe) that this record was gonna be a project with songs written from all members, and that the tunes didn't share many characteristics other than simply being released at the same time

Actually, there's supposed to be a unifying melodic or conceptual theme running through the songs or something like that. A concept album of sorts, but just written by different people separately.

Omaha - Good point mayne. It just seemed different from the way you explained it.

Uh they're kind of huge, so yes, they are still around.

Everything here pretty much sucks, I really REALLY hope they step the fuck up on the upcoming full length album.

Well for one, and I say this as someone who has defended Spencer's vocals since day one, his vocals
are total shit on this, with a few exceptions. There are sooo many vocal effects and every single one
of them is total garbage. And he doesn't have any good/memorable/enjoyable in any way melodies. He
just kind of sucked ass here.

Then there's the fact that most of the songs sound like typical Periphery material, but worse. And
then the songs that don't sound like Periphery material, like The Parade of Ashes, are just god awful.
The only song I enjoy at all is Feed The Ground, and that's just because it's pretty catchy,
it's definitely not anything special.

lol honestly parade of ashes is the most catchy to me, I've never minded spencer's vox but i think he has unique melodies

i love his voice personally, and i can also see that for a periphery album, Parade hardly fits
id be much happier if they released these unofficially, but im sure theyll cash a phat check in the end anyway
