Nu-Djent Might Be the Next Big Thing in Metal, Journalist Explains
Journalist Robert Pasbani from Metal Injection recently presented an interesting theory about nu-djent being the next big thing in the metal genre.

"Heavy metal subgenres are constantly evolving and I proclaim that the next big thing will be nu-djent, a sort of combo of nu-metal in the vein of Linkin Park and djent like Periphery and Animals As Leaders were doing," Rob kicked off.

"There are already bands that are arising that are melding rap metal and chuggy riffs," he continued, bringing up the likes of Devastator and Hacktivist as some of the possible early examples of the new genre.

"The only thing the genre needs now is a breakout band with a super catchy song," the report concludes. "I feel the elements of djent are melodic enough for a wider audience, even some radio play. All it will take is the right band to capture the right combo of djenty and nu-metal riffs and this will be the next big thing."
