* ClusterFBomb: ''Feed The Ground'' and ''The Bad Thing''.
* CoverVersion: They covered One by Music/{{Metallica}} and it is actually surprisingly good. Another notable cover is Black Or White by Music/{{Michael Jackson}} which was performed with a former vocalist Chris Barretto (now sings in Monuments). And the last but not least - The Heretic Anthem by Music/{{Slipknot}}.

* GenreBusting / GenreRoulette: The band has elements of this. While they have Djent's signature {{progressive|Metal}} / GrooveMetal hybrid at their core, not only do they vary in heaviness, they also draw influences from various other genres, such as Mathcore (''Totla Mad'', parts of ''Buttersnips''), PostHardcore (''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9fXn7ebvbE Jetpacks Was Yes!]]''), NuMetal (''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBSXlbnZc60 Ow My Feelings]]'')...they even dropped a song that could be called ''[[TechnicalDeathMetal tech death]]'' (''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ih_WgC3ZC_E Zyglrox]]''). They also throw in some glitchy electronic beats and effects reminiscent of IDM/Drill 'n Bass every once in a while.

* LastNoteNightmare: ''Masamune'' starts with happy-sounding major-scale progressions, then abruptly turns into a darker part which slowly goes to a downtuned dissonant chugging followed by cries from hell towards the end of the song.
* MindScrew: Spencer's lyrics can be quite cryptic. Here's a fun activity: read the lyrics to ''Buttersnips'', and then try to figure them out without looking at the explanation below.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Either a hard 7 or a soft 8, most of the time, but they can be quite diverse: ''Jetpacks Was Yes!'' is around a 5 (or 4, for the EP version), while ''Zyglrox'' is a hard 9, skirting a 10 in some places.

* VocalEvolution: Spencer Sotelo, [[RevolvingDoorBand the latest in a long line of vocalists]], was not very-well recieved by some fans, the most common complaints being that his singing was "whiny" and that his HarshVocals lacked power. Come the ''Periphery II'', he's stepped his game up significantly, developing a style evocative of Protest the Hero's Rody Walker. His vocal capacity has gotten even better since "Periphery II" with the deepest growls he has ever done showing up on the "Juggernaut" albums.

Periphery are an American ProgressiveMetal band founded in 2005, whose relative success has made them leaders of the so-called '{{Djent}}' movement, a recent wave of metal acts that employ Music/{{Meshuggah}}'s chugging, rhythmically complex riffing style as a key component of their music. While acts like SikTh and Textures may have developed the prototypical form of the subgenre, creating a more melodic and experimental take on the original formula, [[TropeCodifier Periphery are generally credited as its zeitgeist band]], kickstarting the popularization and diversification of the genre.
