Enlarge The Periphery founder and axeman is very impressed by the work of his fans.

Video: Periphery’s Misha Mansoor Reacts to Fan YouTube Covers!


With his first-ever solo album coming out soon, we figured it was high time we get Periphery founder and guitarist Misha Mansoor (aka Bulb) on our ongoing video series of metal musicians watching and reacting to fan covers of their music on YouTube. And wouldn’t ya know it, he agreed!

Periphery fans, unsurprisingly, are a very talented bunch, and Mansoor was floored by the quality of covers his fans have created, from acoustic re-imaginings to full band renditions. Have a watch below!

Bulb’s debut, Moderately Fast, Adequately Furious, arrives on July 16 via Periphery’s own 3DOT Recordings label; pre-order it here and listen to the singles “Upload Apathy,” “Echo Teuffel” and “Parabolica.”
