2019-02-06 by Toondude | 129 Comments
Sputnikmusic's favorite djent act Periphery has officially released the first song, entitled "Blood Eagle", off of their upcoming 6th album, Periphery IV: Hail Stan.

The album will be the band's first album without bassist Adam "Nolly" Getgood as a primary songwriter (though he will be producing the album as well as performing bass). It will also be released independently as the band left Sumerian Records in 2017.

'Blood Eagle'



Tracklist:
1. Reptile
2. Blood Eagle
3. Chvrch Bvrner
4. Garden in the Bones
5. It's Only Smiles

"Please don’t be the actual album title"
I mean, would you prefer they take themselves seriously? At least they're self-aware right? I think it's funny.
I'm stoked as fuck for the 17-minute opener. People are bitching about that even though most would agree that their best songs are the longest ones. I expect this one to be technical and proggy as fuck, just like the title track on Omega (one of the best songs they've ever written)

Yeah you’re right. I actually thought it was a joke but a different joke (I was thinking Stan in terms of superfan, not misspelled satan) so that’s why I didn’t get it at first

Anyone know who primarily wrote the bass parts? It says Nolly performed bass, but that he's no longer a songwriter. I'm gonna guess it was mostly Misha.

I'll be a little bit upset if this song is good because it's almost easier to give up on these guys than to hope they'll ever be as good as P2 again, but I guess we'll find out.

I really don't think Sumerian had any say in how P3 sounded, there is no need to try to adjust a band like Periphery, they will always be amazing to a certain ground, and I don't see them doing anything that might change that

It would be so easy for me to just dismiss this band as a "guilty pleasure" and some harmless fun I could have listening to metal once in a blue moon...but because they made Juggernaut: Omega now I know they're actually capable of a borderline masterpiece and therefore expect this to happen again.

I don't think "taking themselves seriously" would really work for them tho. Just not the band's persona. In the end, an album title is just an album title. It's not like you'll be thinking "hail stan, hail stan..." the entire time you're listening to it. They're just kind of embracing the whole subtitle joke

Despite the memes/perceptions they have taken themselves seriously in a number of technical aspects. This track is confusing to analyze even from a polyphonic metal perspective. It's influenced by their past output, other bands' work and a new sound. After this I'm hoping we will get some juicy progressive metal/thrash/djent, rather than some rote shit spun out with a different take, chances are we will get some of both.

Also Spencer is a truly talented vocalist. His screams and growls have gotten better, and his best technical strength as a vocalist has been his immense range and actually good pitch, but his clean-vocal entrance into this track is underwhelming. I really hope they figure out how they want to execute a shifting sound better than this

A few weeks ago I listened to Nihilist Blues by Bring Me The Horizon and thought about how it was the least Bring Me The Horizon sounding song I'd ever heard. Today I listened to Blood Eagle by Periphery and thought about how it was the most Periphery sounding song I'd ever heard.
