^ Not sure how you got Pantera rip off out of that but music is subjective....

I was expecting something like Amon Amarth based on their appearance and the setting, then it all went downhill. 2:30-2:45 reminded me of Meshuggah a little but thought the rest was fairly crap.

+1

They sounded more Metalcore to me.

It was considered as the "overlooked" LP but it sill had good tracks on it.

Another meshuggah track has been released, only a few days before the album release so meh but you can check it out here. http://scionav.com/c...--I-Am-Colossus

Don't look down is by far the best though, so frickin groovy.

I d/led the Drugstore Fanatics album and I've been thrashing it all week, it's pretty good. Elements of faith no more, a perfect circle, nine inch nails etc but some of it actually reminds me of the aussie bands getting around today.

You can get it free here:

Edit: after going through this thread, I realised it's mostly gay.

- Sadistik Exekution : Infernal Klok

- Stargazer - Of the Sun...

- Destroyer 666 - I am The Wargod

These videos have made it otherwise so.

Djent isn't a fad, it's exactly where metal needed to go. I played metal drums for almost a decade and it was always so straight and linear, and that's very boring if that's all you do. There's nothing bad about a bit of groove, it's just in a very experimental phase for most bands right now and there's alot of shit, just as there was with "mathcore". You'll grow out of that black stuff eventually.

I'm a djent fan! Haunted Shores, volumes, veil, periphery... man the melodies those bands produce!

Great cover of a great song from a great band!

I had to look up what 'djent' was. f**king disgraceful name, gayer term than 'dubstep'.

I get that, and know the bands described as being part of that genre but the name itself is just shit. The over classification of metal has gone too far this time. Onomatopoeia terms to describe music should be strictly for taking the piss eg 'doof doof' :)

man, I was looking for ages for a term to use to describe all that is wrong with metal, then i read what djent is and now i dont need to worry because it sums it up nicely.

Started with Meshuggah member wearing a shirt that had "Got Djent?" on it.

The style is old hat... just an evolution of Jazz Metal/Prog Metal really.









Don't tell me that metal drumming is straight and linear, you may as well sign up to the catholic church as that's the only way of being saved - so I hear.

LOL!

It has it's Pros and Con of over classification but it just helps narrows down the elements within a bands music, if you want to get technical...

But yeah, I see what you mean.

Don't know if many of you guys have heard of this band, so. Have a listen! They are so heavy and don't have the typical double-kick on the drum and fast paced guitars.

^ Very slow & chunky sort of sound. I don't mind it but there's not enough variation in the music or vocals for me to go buy it.

A lot of their songs sound similar too. I do agree that there isn't much variation at all.

It's a lovely change from the typical heavy music where you nearly break your neck and the speed of sound from trying to headbang to it. ;)

"Old hat", says the man that posts a Death track. So do you play an instrument? Know music theory? Do you know anything about jazz?

It's nothing to do with jazz and it's only associated with prog by name, in that it's progressive, it's miles away from dream theater (and similar faggots). I can't speak for all the other djent bands 'cos I don't listen to them but the founding bands like meshuggah, periphery, special defekts etc use alot of syncopation, odd time signatures and recurring rhythms, layering different time signatures and using different feels and they're truly brilliant if you know what you're actually hearing. I am a muso (have studied and practiced since I was 5) and I think Meshuggah are the most ground breaking band of the last few decades. Yes these bands also draw a bone head crowd as well as the musos but that just goes to show how seamlessly they've done it.

Again, metal IS straight and linear 99% of the time which to me is BORING if you've no teen angst left and you have some sort of an ear for music. 4/4, 16th notes on the bass drum and drop D guitar and some gronk growling WOW. It gets old.

Here we have a masterpiece:
