New Periphery is tits. There is sound is now 100x more progressive than the first album and Spencer Sotelo has become an even better vocalist. I can see it growing on me and becoming something really special with repeat listens. Hell they might even win over some new fans with this record. Standout tracks for me were Have A Blast, Scarlet, Luck As A Constant, The Gods Must Be Crazy!, Froggin Bullfish, and Mile Zero.
Somewhat unrelated side note: Wes Hauch's solo on Mile Zero was incredible. I can see him bringing a lot to the table for The Faceless. I now completely understand why Michael Keene was so excited to add him to the lineup, the dude fucking shreds. Now if only their new album would actually come out...
4/5 Protest the Hero/Battlecross
4/9 Danny Brown
