is an experimental EP on which each Periphery member composed a track and covered the role of creative director of that tune. This was the the song written by guitarist Mark Holcomb. Programmer Jake Bowen told Artist Direct
: "Mark writes things almost effortlessly. He'd disagree and say he puts a lot of effort into it. It seems like whenever Mark sets out to write something it's just solid gold right out the gate. He's one of those guitarists. I really look up to Mark as a player. It has this vibe that really is very unique to Mark. He had a band Periphery played with many times before called Haunted Shores. It's probably one of the reasons he's in Periphery. We remain close with them. The vibe in 'Pale Aura' is very much a Haunted Shores vibe. If you go back and listen to that band, you can definitely hear the evolution of that song."
"His track is also very black metal-inspired too towards the end," Bowen continued. "He's a huge black metal fan, and he tries to put that influence in there too. You can hear it with the blast beats, the really fast double bass, and chord progressions."
