US progressive/djent outfit Periphery have posted the new song "Muramasa" online, which comes off the band's new album Periphery II: This Time It's Personal and can be heard in the video below. The new album is out now in North America and will be released on July 16th via Century Media in Europe.

Periphery's Misha Mansoor also commented on the track: "This song is the first part of the 'Trilogy' on the album (Muramasa, Ragnarok, Masamune) and shares music, lyrics and themes with the other two songs. It was originally demoed a few years back and it was supposed to be a live intro that we were going to play when opening up with Zyglrox which is in a pretty specific tuning (AGCFAD) so this song is also in that tuning. That idea fell through, and the song was forgotten about."

"When we were putting the 'Trilogy' together, we were listening to old demos that we hadn't heard in a while and this popped up. Listening to it then, it hit us all that this song absolutely had to open the album, and that we had something very special and a little different from our usual fare."
