Djent
'Djent' refers to a particular style of metal music, incorporating low tuned, open note syncopated riffing and/or heavily palm-muted metallic-sounding power chords. It is regarded as a new sub-genre of metal by some, but this is controversial.

There are a huge amount of djent bands on this database: http://got-djent.com/bands

It's a lesser known genre but now lots of bands are getting mainstream success from it. If you've never heard of djent before you should check it out, it's a pretty refreshing sub-genre of metal Smile

RE: Djent
Honestly it just sounds just like that chuggy generic mallcore stuff like The Devil Wears Prada but maybe I haven't heard the right bands.
Punk rock should mean freedom. Liking and accepting anything that you like, playing whatever you want, as sloppy as you want. As long as it's good and it has passion. - Kurt Cobain

Yeah, you haven't heard the right bands Tongue You need to go deeper to find the good stuff! I'll agree that a LOT of mallcore bands have incorporated it into their music though.

Ya you need to go underground to find the good stuff in pretty much everything these days, from music to movies.

RE: Djent
I'd say start off with Meshuggah, TesseracT, Periphery and Monuments to get an idea of what the genre sounds like
But some really good ones are: Uneven Structure, Akeldama, Corelia, Aliases, Benea Reach
There are too many to list as well as these, so check that site out too

RE: Djent
Sounds like a subgenre of mallcore. Already listened to it when it got popular.
You are your own future, you write your own book,
you choose the colors of your world, you choose the patterns of your words,
the past you can't erase so live for today.

Meshugga and Periphery are pretty big and they're the basically the fathers of the genre, I don't really care for the genre as a whole, but they sound better than the new bands that are trying to get into this 'djent' hype in my opinion.

Sure those two bands are pretty big but the genre itself isn't widely known.
I've been listening to it less than I used to, it's starting to get stale, but there are still bands that like to do something new and interesting with it.

RE: Djent
I've been listening for some days to djent now. It's a very catchy sub-genre but often gets boring when you listen too much to it. Strange that 80% of the bands are using illuminati symbols.
