Old Az Shit.

Just something I put together earlier in the year and never got around to finishing it. It's far from my best work, but I thought i'd post it anyway.

The riff at bar 17 is very generic and boring. I'm not a fan of breakdowns unless they add something to the song. It felt as if the breakdown at bar 33 was put in just to have a breakdown.

Overall, the intro, the parts at 41-56 and 73-88, were the only things I liked.

Isn't it the sound of palm muting 4-note-chords?

No it really isn't. It began as an onomatopoeic word to describe the sound of a palm muted octave like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChzWzkTwxIs, djent djent, djent djent. It's not describing the tone but the sound of the chord.
However it's become so much more than that. Bands influenced by Meshuggah such as Periphery, TesseracT, FellSilent, Monuments and Vildjharta all play a particular niche variation of progressive metal which has come to be described as djent in modern times. Djent is no longer really used just to describe the sound but it is instead used to in the context of a variation on the genre on progressive metal.

Thanks, I'm sick of people fighting over whether Djent is a genre or not, After The Burial is considered Djent also, correct?

Erm I wouldn't say so. They have djentish features but are probably considered Progressive Deathcore I think.
