Had a chance to drive down to Chicago to see Periphery / Veil of Maya yesterday; both bands were nothing short of amazing.
Misha was working the Merch table the entire night, so i had a chance to go up and say hi to him (really nice / down to earth guy); other members of the band were hanging out as well (there was a console set up with Soulcalibur next to their merch table \m/)
Their sound was probably the best live sound i have ever heard (going direct into PA w/ AXEFX), everything was easily "hearable" (is that a word?) and the tone was very organic yet still clean and polished.
I had a chance to shoot the song Zyglrox on my phone, the quality of the sound got muffled by the crappy mic in my palm pre, but just to give you an idea of how great they were live.

Cant wait to see them again
Their sound guy does a really good job. With three guitars, bass, drums, vocals and backing tracks, everything sounded tight. I had a hard time getting a full sense of it because i was standing right by the PA stack on Misha's side of the stage, so i heard a lot of Misha and less of everything else.
