The second half of Periphery’s Juggernaut double album up in full

Earlier this week finally brought us the first half of Periphery‘s epic double album for public consumption, but now it’s time to devour it whole. Yeah, you heard me: Juggernaut: Omega is now also available for a full stream through YouTube.

Dubbed the more pessimistic of the two by guitarist Misha Mansoor, Omega continues where Alpha left off and while it’s quite different in some ways you will surely hear a couple of familiar things if you already partook in Monday’s Periphery-feast. Feel “The Bad Thing“, talk to your “Priestess” and explore “Hell Below”. Which album is the stronger of the two? Or should they not be judged separately? Sound off in the comments.

Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega are out January 23rd in Australia through Roadrunner Records, January 26th in Europe/the UK through Century Media Records, and through Sumerian Records/Distort/TripleVision Entertainment in the USA, Canada and Japan on the 27th. We’ll have reviews of both VERY SOON.

Periphery are on the road right now, touring North America with Nothing MoreWovenwar and Thank You Scientist (dates below). That will be followed by a European stint with the mighty Devin Townsend, plus a special show in London next April with support from Xerath and Red Seas Fire.
