PERIPHERY Members Cover SLIPKNOT's 'The Heretic Anthem' (Audio)

PERIPHERY vocalist Spencer Sotelo has enlisted the help of his badmates Misha Mansoor and Matt Halpern, as well as Taylor Larson (who is co-producing the forthcoming PERIPHERY album) and Will Donnelly, to record a cover version of the SLIPKNOT song "The Heretic Anthem". You can now listen to their version using the SoundCloud player below.

The original version of "The Heretic Anthem" can be found on SLIPKNOT's second album, "Iowa", which was re-released last year as a 10th-anniversary edition. The reissue sold 3,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 136 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD has shifted more than 1.17 million units so far, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

PERIPHERY recently entered the studio to begin recording its sophomore full-length album for an early 2012 release via Sumerian Records.

Bassist Tom Murphy last year announced his departure from PERIPHERY "to pursue something new." Adam "Nolly" Getgood of RED SEAS FIRE has been filling in on bass while Mark Holcomb took up his position as the full-time guitarist on the band's recent tour.
