Periphery started in 2005 as the recording project of guitarist and producer Misha Mansoor. Mansoor had already made a name for himself in the progressive metal community through his production abilities with his project Bulb. He created Periphery as an evolution of his earlier work, taking the music out of the studio and onto the road; he fleshed out the band with a lineup that included guitarists Alex Bois and Jake Bowen, bassist Tom Murphy, drummer Matt Halpern, and, after running through a few vocalists, singer Spencer Sotelo. Periphery released their self-titled debut in 2010 on Sumerian, then quickly went out on the road, touring the U.S. and Canada, as well as making stops in Australia and the U.K. The following year, the band released their first EP, Icarus. Leading up to 2012's Periphery II: This Time It's Personal, Mark Holcomb replaced Bois on guitar and Adam Getgood replaced Murphy on bass. The album earned positive reviews from critics, and debuted just outside the Top 40 on the main Billboard albums chart. By 2015, the band had readied a double album for Sumerian. Comprising two halves, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega both appeared on the same day in January 2015, earning yet more positive reviews for the band and even higher chart placements, topping out at number 22 on Billboard. Although Juggernaut took six months to record, the group wasted no time reentering the studio to record the follow-up. The resulting full-length, Periphery III: Select Difficulty, appeared in July 2016, and was nominated for Best Metal Performance at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. In 2018 the band split with Sumerian, and in 2019 they issued their sixth studio long-player, Periphery IV: Hail Stan, on their own independent label 3DOT Recordings. The following year saw the group release their first concert LP, Live in London. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi

Although the core bandmembers -- vocalist Kadeem France and vocalist/guitarist Erik Bickerstaffe -- had been making music together for two to three years in local acts such as Our Imbalance, it wasn't until 2014 that they named themselves Loathe. Initially, Bickerstaffe was the band's sole clean vocalist, but by 2017 France was also contributing in this way. However, from the outset, both members delivered an unclean death growl, backed up by Connor Sweeney on rhythm guitar, Sean Radcliffe on drums, and Shayne Smith on bass.
By 2015, they had secured a slot at Manchester's Deadbolt Festival, which was swiftly followed by the release of their self-financed debut EP, Prepare Consume Proceed. As an attempt to create an air of mystery, for initial shows, France wore a horror mask and the band only identified as three-digit pseudonyms, giving no explanation of their origin. However, following the reissue of the EP on the Nuclear Blast-related imprint SharpTone Records, they abandoned this stylized presentation in favor of a more honest approach. Much of 2016 was spent touring the U.K., supporting acts such as Birmingham's Oceans Ate Alaska and fellow Liverpool band Carcer City, while the early part of 2017 saw them tour in support of the Harrogate melodic hardcore act Blood Youth.
Their Matt McLennan-produced debut full-length, The Cold Sun, was recorded in Atlanta, Georgia, and released in June of that year. Follow-up tours ensued with Harbinger and Bury Tomorrow, and early in the new year they released a split EP with the Cardiff post-hardcore act Holding Absence. After an appearance at Download Festival, Smith left the band to become a tattoo artist, and he was replaced by the Holding Absence bassist Feisal El-Khazragi, a player also able to provide backing unclean vocals. The remainder of 2018 was spent on tour, but Bickerstaffe also found time to engage in production work for God Complex, while France contributed vocals to the Of Legions' hardcore single "Vision of Misery."
Just prior to Loathe's first-ever gig in China, the band issued the tracks "Gored" and "New Face in the Dark" in September 2019. This was the first material to be issued from February 2020's I Let it in and It Took Everything, a dynamic album of twists and turns from death metal to emo and soundtrack-inspired electronics to shoegaze.
