COVER STORY

PERIPHERY has never been a band intent on taking the easy path, releasing records crammed with complex, labyrinthine but always gripping and dynamic modern metal. Taking full control of the reins, they self-produced their new record, holding to the highest standards, and in doing so not only made themselves somewhat crazy but created an 80 minute concept driven beast that makes the label “progressive” mean something again. Vocalist Spencer Sotelo and guitarist Misha Mansoor give us the lowdown on everything that went into Juggernaut.

IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWS
ALL THAT REMAINS:
On The Order of Things, All That Remains delivers a defiant statement, proving that the only way they do things is their own way, with soaring, ultra melodic anthems playing off against gruff mosh riots and a ton of raw emotion poured into every note and phrase. We caught up with vocalist Phil Labonte to learn what drives the band and why they remain such a force in modern metal.

BATTLE BEAST: On their third outing, Unholy Savior, Battle Beast flies the flag of traditional metal high, but splashes enough of their own color to keep things interesting. Vocalist Noora Louhimo discusses Unholy Savior and the dynamics of Battle Beast.

DEFEAT THE LOW: Their debut album, A Nervous Smile, is still warm underneath the shrink-wrap, but the quintet has already fired a flare gun of controversy into the chest of melodic rock/punk. Their crime? Having A Nervous Smile issued on their rhythm guitarist’s label. Vocalist Chris Huaraque wasn’t surprised when the topic came up.

TORCHE has existed as one of extreme music’s most treasured dichotomies since forming out of the ashes of Floor. In celebration of Restarter, the band’s fourth full-length and first for Relapse, we caught up with drummer Rick Smith as he juggled his busy rehearsal schedule during time at home in Miami.

THE RELAPSE SYMPHONY: With a well earned reputation for rocking hard and living hard, The Relapse Symphony kicked down a lot of doors with 2014’s Shadows, but they’re not resting on their laurels. Dropping an acoustic version of the album, they stripped things back to basics, and they’re already working on its follow-up.

OTHERWISE: Behind a muscular, melodic sound that draws from the arena sized hooks of 90s alt-rock, their recent effort, Peace at All Costs, stormed to the top of the charts. Vocalist Adrian Patrick discusses the new record and the importance of lyrics in heavy music.

KONTRUST: There’s no such thing as shufflecore, but if any band is worthy of the description, it’s Austria’s Kontrust. Sometimes heavy, sometimes honey sweet, Kontrust is always catchy. Vocalist Stefan Lichtenberger discusses how and why the band kept it relatively simple on Explositive.

NORTHLANE: Replacing a frontman is no easy feat, let alone when he’s one of the founding members of your band and, above all else, a friend. Guitarist Josh Smith talks about “Rot,” their new singer, and Northlane’s future.

SYLOSIS: Back with their fourth album and a new perspective, they’ve thrown off the shackles of reservation with Dormant Heart. Guitarist/vocalist Josh Middleton talks about near-death experiences, the English driving hour, and figurative zombification.
