Periphery Release New Single ‘Passenger’

Prog-metal/djent band Periphery have released Passenger, the first single from their upcoming album (as of yet unnamed and with no defined release date). The song is actually a rerecording of the Haunted Shores song of the same name. You can snag the song on iTunes.
All told, I’m not a fan of the new mix. The snare not only pops out of the mix a bit too strongly but it is also EQ-ed to a point where it sounds a bit piercing. The bass drum also has an incredibly similar tone to Meshuggah‘s Bleed. Still, as for the song itself, I’m enjoying it! It has a great mix of heaviness and melody and the chorus is ridiculously catchy. Check it out below.
