Peril were a Japanese/Australian industrial band operating throughout the early 1990s.
Peril was founded by drummer Tony Buck and were active from 1992 to 1996. The music is mostly improvised with Buck’s drum-triggered samples providing a complex rhythmic base, over this is the turntablism/guitar of Otomo Yoshihide and other rock improvised elements from Michael Sheridan (guitar), Kato Hideki (bass) from Japan. Hideki was later replaced by Thierry Fossemalle for the band's second album. The group recorded and performed internationally throughout Europe and Asia.
"The music was the most extreme collage of styles and textures that I’ve ever been gloriously immersed in. The depth to which sounds were crossed made Zorn’s Naked City sound like a mere pit band."- Sheridan
A second album, Multiverse was recorded in the Netherlands between July and October 1993, and released in 1995 on the Sound Factory label from Hong Kong.
