Periphery - Periphery IV: HAIL STAN (2019)

176 posts in this topic

Having read the reviews of the album I really thought to take a slap, but I find the album really long is tasteless.
The singer is really annoying sometimes and I admit that the first title is really too long to digest first.
I will not even listen to it so much it disappointed me !!

agreed, but the only reason that's worth mentioning is in contrast to all the hype. 

 

if I listen to it as just an album, not trying to reinvent the genre, it's pretty damn good.

Stan is being hailed. A lot of different directions here, moments that go as far as to remind me of BTBAM. Time will tell how well it holds up, but impressed on listen no. 1.

I've had Reptile, It's Only Smiles, Sentient Glow and Satellites on repeat the last few days.  Good stuff.

 

If I like those songs a lot (the more clean vocal/hook heavy catchier stuff)... are there other highlights song-wise in Periphery's discog that sound like them?  Wouldn't mind getting some more to listen to but there's a lot of albums/music to sift through from them.

Killer album! Their instrumentalists have always been other worldly. Anyone know the meaning behind Hail Stan?

Lune, Masamune, and Erised are the first few that come to my mind

I recommend Catch Fire, Scarlet, Alpha, Absolomb, and Lune in that order

Time to give a full opinion on P4. 

 

Short version: It's fucking amazing. 

 

Long version: 

 

Reptile - This is definitively their magnum opus. This...beast surpassed both Omega and Racecar for me. From the orchestral beginning to the spoken part of Mikee fucking Goodman from SikTH, over the Focus Hour part to the epic "SOIL WE OWNNNN" ending. This song alone shows every reason we love Periphery. It's like they took the feelings of their best songs and merged it into one divine beast.

 

Not gonna say anything too much about Blood Eagle and Garden in The Bones, only that they were probably the best choices for singles and that they are, obviously, sick.

 

This album won't let you get a breather either, CHRVCH BVRNER pretty much slaps you into the face harder than a comet. It's weird, insane and straight out chaotic, along with that eerie dupstep-ish ending. Whoa. Matt probably had a lot of fun drumming.

 

It's Only Smiles is pretty much a heavier Catch Fire. Spencer proves once again that he is one of the best singers of this genre. Pretty epic stuff and the "whoaaaaaa-oh-ohh" part is just straight out beautiful. I almost began crying at the very end. 


Follow Your Ghost in return knows no mercy, instead it kinda is like a second "The Bad Thing" and has that epic last minute with Spencer screaming "YOUR HERO FALLSSSS!!!" and then a good as fuck guitar solo kicking in. THE PANDEMONIUM IS HIGHHHHH!

 

If you think the next one will slap into your face again, you're right, but not in a way you expect. The cinematic "Crush" guides you with some serious electronica, with some prog. metal leaking in here and there, before it pretty much blows your mind at the last minute, where it suddenly gets all eerie orchestral, where you could just feel like you are watching some unsettling ballet. "Cinematic" is pretty fitting for this one.

 

Sentient Glow, said to be the song which brought Spencer into the band, has Periphery II written all over it. It's fast, groovy and pretty much on the same step of Flatline and Scarlet. Spencer proves that he has a beautiful voice once again and overall, he nailed it more than Chris Baretto did. 

 

Satellites is just...I'm speechless for this one. It starts off calm, until the 4:33 mark, where Spencer just passes dimensions with his vocal range and every band member just goes their best one last time, before it calmly ends and leaves you out with a burst of laughter. Suck my balls.

 

Overall, Periphery have shown - once again - what they are capable of. It's on the same level as P3 for me, so the "absolutely godly" level. Combine Periphery II, Juggernaut and Periphery III and you get this beauty.

Dope record, but I personally think Reptile and Satellites (and maybe Blood Eagle) kinda-hard carry the rest of the record.

It's one of my favorite albums of 2019. Periphery never fail to drop an amazing album, it seems.

Hell yeah dude. Certainly an AOTY contender, and Reptile is 100% SOTY for me.
