Sheet Happens Publishing is excited to release The Complete Guitar Transcription for Periphery’s 5th studio album Periphery III: Select Difficulty.  Learning to play the 11 tracks will be no easy task, but The Complete Guitar Transcription book is the only tool you will ever need to master learning the LP, including opening track “The Price Is Wrong” which was nominated for Best Metal Performance at the 2017 Annual Grammy Awards. The transcription was overseen and approved by Periphery guitarists Mark Holcomb, Jake Bowen, and Misha Mansoor.  Mark spearheaded intensive rounds of editing to ensure the most accurate and comprehensive transcription you will find for these complex songs.

Produced by band members Misha Mansoor and Adam Getgood, Periphery III: Select Difficulty charted worldwide notably hitting #22 on the US Billboard 200 Albums and #8 on the ARIA chart in Australia. The album received widespread acclaim including Kerrang! who said, “The heaviest and catchiest thing the Washingtonians have unleashed–and the most moving, too.” Allmusic, gave the LP 4 out of 5 stars, commenting, “…the 11-track set offers up another relentless mix of soaring melodies and punishing djent grooves that employ the usual arsenal of instrumentation, with the additions of Moog synthesizer and a full-on orchestra.

Based in Washington, D.C., Periphery are considered one of the pioneers of the djent movement within progressive metal. Periphery released their self-titled debut in 2010 garnering respect among fans and critics worldwide for pushing the boundaries of progressive metal with their technically dizzying sound. The band’s 2012 Periphery II: This Time It’s Personal, and 2015 double album Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega earned stellar reviews from critics, both landing on the Top 40 U.S. Billboard album chart. The band’s current line-up consists of Misha Mansoor (guitar), Jake Bowen (guitar), Matt Halpern (drums), Spencer Sotelo (vocals) and Mark Holcomb (guitar).
