Speaking to Kerrang! about Periphery IV: Hail Stan, Periphery guitarist Jake Bowen said, “I think it’s easy to just assume Periphery is capable of writing certain types of melodies or ethereal-sounding passages or whatever, but a lot of the aspects about metal are not pleasant to listen to and fill you with a certain type of energy, so we really like exploring them.
“A few of us listen to some really brutal metal,” he added, “and we always talk about how much fun it would be to do stuff like that. So to finally sit down and do it feels pretty good — it feels like a catharsis.”
