Agreed. They started off with a pretty typical djent tone and then figured out how to make it sound huge while maintaining the string definition and cut. It helped to have Nolly around, I'm sure. Misha has also become a good producer who knows the post-production tricks to make that happen.Periphery's one of the only "djent" bands I know of that had great tone. It's a case of mids being important, but not clogging the entire spectrum between 700hz - 1k.
Wasn't a fan of the first album's sound, but PII onward, the guitars are monstrous. Reminds me more of 2000s metalcore than it does 2010s djent.
