I don't want to look at Wikipedia's description, because their pages on genres tend to not be totally accurate.

I've heard about one or two Meshuggah songs. I remember them sounding like Fear Factory, but more complex, yet less interesting.

Are there any particular notable djent bands I should hear? I want to have an idea of what the genre sounds like, so I can know if I'd enjoy it or not.

where the term "djent" originates from

when periphery was good

when Monuments had the Fellsilent vocalists (who sorta sound similar to SikTh's vocalists)

Aztec Two Step is a pretty decent song.

Nine Toat La Mad is pretty cool too.

Admit Defeat is okay.



I guess I'm okay with djent then. Thank you for this educational look at the genre, After_The_Barrel_Roll Happy

Djent was cool at first. And then everyone started trying to sound like Periphery and it turned into a giant mess.

"Djent" simply refers to the palm muted chugs that do sort of sound like "djent". Djent used to be an underground very diy, instrumental, bedroom recording, guitar player's genre. Free songs for download, one man projects, everyone seemed to be big on rpgs (bulb/periphery has covered FF songs and Vildjharta's EP was named Omnislash). Now djent has turned into much more. Many bands consider themselves "djenty". A lot of metalcore bands have a djent sound at times, a lot of bands people call "progressive metal" now also have a bit of a djent sound. Animals As Leaders and Tesseract are good examples. I think the genre is definitely a bit of a fad, but the first periphery album is pretty good as an instrumental. Not a big fan of the album with vocals. Vildjharta also ruined the genre by starting this "thall" craze which has no meaning. Djent fans just say "thall" 24/7 and it's the most retarded/annoying shit ever.

Djent is probably the worst term I've ever heard.
