Best Periphery Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 22 Faces

This song is one of the strongest songs on the Juggernaut albums. The buildups are engaging, the hard-hitting choruses are incredibly climactic, and the guitar solo is very memorable.

Best song on Juggernaut, but great album (s), so not the best by much!

Spencer's vocal work on this is delicious, and the blend between Melody and Heaviness is perfect. My only knock is "no guitar solo"

27 One (Metallica Cover)
28 Ragnarok

This song in its simplest form is a story. It starts dark, angry and aggressive, then suddenly the clouds move and the 'Somewhere in Time' movement comes through. The first movement is full of rage and increasingly becomes more and more aggressive as the instruments are 'pounded'. Once the rage is calmed, the emotional finale breaks through. A drastic change but it forces an emotive serge in you. To finish the'symphony', a the Capo is introduced but a calmer variation. This song can only be described as a masterpiece.

Absolutely underrated

The opening groove way to good for this song to be 28. This is a top 10 song. There’s no denying that - xEJD-

Oh god this song is definitely underrated!
I'm so SHOCKED!? This song's gotta be in the top 5! The part after 2:20 makes me FLY!
And the godly note by spencer at the end of this, god, makes me pee.
"... To ourSELVEES" :D

So good to play it

The ending, so chilling!

30 The Bad Thing

Just absolutely brilliant. The guitar is amazing. The vocals are badass. The solo kicks ass. This is one of the best progressive metal songs ever made and the bands best song yet.

Best track off both Juggernauts hands down. Slow, chugging, heaviness.

If you wanna be a thug you gotta crank up the chug.

How this song is not in the top 10 is beyond me

31 Flatline
32 The Way the News Goes

According to me it should be at least in the top 20. It is not much of metal stuff. But it still is very progressive being quite soft than the other songs.

33 Absolomb

This song epitomizes Periphery: a Bulb-style, rhythmically complex intro (that is also quite djenty), seamless transitions from heavy to soft, perfectly-placed hits by Matt, 3 unique solos played by each of the 3 guitar powerhouses, and transcendent harmonies and chord changes over Spencer's lush yet passionate singing. I truly believe that this song is the pinnacle of Spencer's singing (as of October 2017).

The ending, however, is what keeps me coming back to this song so often. Incorporating a massive-sounding string orchestra in a way that I believe doesn't shock metal fans but rather captivates them further proves that all 6 members have songwriting skills beyond many other djent artists. But even more, I am in awe of how they made the ending in their own style rather than in the style of classical orchestral music. I am not referring as much to the notes that are being played, but rather more to the entire song structure - the ending comes after a monumental 5 minutes of ...more - themagicpebble

34 The Heretic Anthem
35 The Gods Must Be Crazy!

This song deserves much better ratings

Love the lyrics of this song, most underrated song in my opinnion!

36 The Parade of Ashes

This is a great song! I heard the first time this morning and I have listened to it more then 50 times!

Why isn't this on spotify? This is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard in my life.

37 Pale Aura

I'm not into prog metal. I listen to good music from whatever genre people suggest, and try to adjust to their style. I can't claim to be a person who knows good music, but I do have some knowledge of music, starting from a young age, and a good sense of rhythm. So this friend of mine suggested this band Periphery to me, and I respected his opinions, he's kind of a genius. So I checked out the band, but never really got to it. I mean, it's a great band, and they make good stuff, but just not what got me in. Every song other than Jetpack Was Yes got deleted, and that stayed until 2014, when I was just going through Wikipedia and saw these guys were releasing a new album, and that was incidentally the very day. So I hit Pale Aura on random.

That stayed for a few weeks. I usually go with whatever random song comes on shuffle. I liked the song, but did not think it was something amazing. I'm sure a lot of guys can relate to listening to a song for the first time, thinking it was ...more

I have to say that Periphery has become top 5 favorite bands. Their music and writing styles are absolutely captivating. Although Mile Zero is by far my favorite song and composition, this song is definitely my second favorite. As amazing as Misha is, Mark's writing style is so much more in line with my musical tastes. I feel like it has so much more depth and feeling. Pale Aura is definitely my second favorite song by Periphery and arguably one of their best efforts overall.

That intro guitr riff just fills you with energy!
Amazing song throughout!
