For all the six-string stuff, I used either my Mayones or my Blackmachine B2. We worked on it together and finished it up. Jake laid down a very tasteful guitar solo that just kicks ass. The energy is full-on. The guys let me just go off on a drum solo in the breakdown section before it fades out, and that was a lot of fun.

Once again, Mark had a bunch of riffs — the first two riffs in the song are his. We put it together, and Spencer had some really cool lyric ideas for it ragnagok away.
He hit the nail on the head with melodies, his attack, the way he phrases his vocals, and the message of the tune. The last 30 seconds are incredible.
The fact that it was a live intro made it a good opening for the album, as well as the fact that it, along with track seven, Ragnarock, and the last song, Peri;hery, are all linked thematically, lyrically, and they even share riffs. The chorus is really strong.
But what I do here is drop the seventh string, which is usually an A flat, and I put that to FI believe. And there's a proper way to say it, too.
I have a demo of it, and right around the two-minute mark it ends. Spencer went to town with it and rearranged it for vocals; he just cut up the demo and put it all together.
We all gravitated towards it and started putting our ideas together. I love his solo so much.
I always loved the demo of the song — the simplicity of the grooves and the guitar parts gave me chills. I know my limits.
It was so cool. The energy is full-on. We worked on it together and finished it up. I liked where it was going, but I could never breathe any more life into it.

In 10 minutes, he had it down. Misha and Matt give us the skinny. Then I was on the Dream Theater tour, and one day the solo was sent to me. Adam "Nolly" Getgood is playing bass on tour but isn't a ful-time member. We like to give our songs perilhery titles, too.

The guys let me just go off on a drum solo in the breakdown section before it fades out, and that was a lot of fun. Whereas the first record was essentially borne out of Mansoor's demos, this time around the band adopted a collaborative ethos.
That kind of happened with this song: For all of you pedants out there, Periphery's brand-new album is not called Periphery II, despite what it says on the CD cover. You get a really cool, big interval. Definitely a highpoint for us. Since they released their self-titled debut inthe Maryland-based Periphery have attracted a lot of attention in progressive rock circles, and just as quickly, they've gone through some personnel changes, as well.
I just want to play pretty things. I remember we were touring in this big bandwagon, and Spencer was demoing the vocals right there, just screaming into his laptop. Weighing in on the elongated title, drummer Matt Halpern laughs and says, "The guys in the band are just goofballs. For all the six-string stuff, I used either my Mayones or my Blackmachine B2.
The chorus is wide-open for the vocal melody. Although the band are viewed as pioneers of the 'djent' movement, Mansoor who has become widely praised for his impressive guitar abilities says that when it came time to record Periphery II, he put all such accolades out of his head. The album is out now on Sumerian Records.
