Periphery is an American band from Maryland. Formed in 2005 and known for their triple-guitar attack, rhythmic dexterity and soaring melodies, they are considered one of the pioneers of the djent movement within progressive metal. The band was formed by guitarist Misha Mansoor, who gained a reputation on various on-line forums and through his regularly updated Soundclick account.

Mark Holcomb joined Periphery in 2011 and played on the bandís second album, Periphery II: This Time Itís Personal and subsequent recordings including the bandís new double album release, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega which debuted at debuted at Nos. 15 and 16 respectively on the U.S. Billboard 200.

Mark and the band have been very busy of late and we had a short window of time for this exclusive Q&A session. Mark will be on hand to discuss his new PRS guitar that comes with his signature Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega model pickups, as well as his other gear, life as a working musician, his uncanny ability to do voice impersonations, and other topics.

Joining Mark in this Q&A is Keith Merrow--co-founder of Conquering Dystopia, studio guitar player, songwriter, producer, engineer, gear demonstrator, student, teacher, and Seymour Duncan employee. Keith worked closely with Mark on the voicing of the Alpha and Omega pickups and will be on hand for the Q&A.
