listen to different types of modern metal then, rather than djent.
That's like, hardly possible.


But even in Djent not all bands are this way. Skyharbor is fantastic, Textures is decent, Tessaract is fantastic (even better on their first album with Dan), it's the ones that don't go 3000x over the edge with processing and gating that it doesn't even sound human anymore.

I think I better step in here...


90% of so called "djent" music nowadays is absolute rubbish, I'm a fan of the genre and can freely admit that.
But a lot of the bands that started out in the genre when it was still evolving; Tesseract, Monuments, Vildhjarta, Periphery, Fellsilent, Uneven Structure and so on are very good bands.

The problem with a lot "djent" bands nowadays is they only use the core djent sound or mix it with crappy "core" elements and don't write original music.
A lot of people give djent hate because they think it's just chug chug chug but all the bands mentioned above all have great unique elements which surpass the core sound so many people hate about djent. Whether it be really intricate layered atmosphere or good technical elements.

Just a final thing, many people complain, particularly about periphery, but listen to this and tell me it's just chug chug chug.

The link won't load for me.

Guy plays off beat power chords, lets them ring, *"two hours of editing later"*, some different timing shit.
EDIT: ^Maybe if it were accented better so there was a distinguishable meter it wouldn't be as chug.

He's making fun of it, but that dude is one of the worst offenders.

metal is for amateurs. it all sounds like complete shit when played live, no perceptible different notes and terrible vocals

Maybe if you're gonna go to a metal show you shouldn't pick a shit band

djent should not be a genre. it should be a unique style adopted by two bands and two bands only; periphery and meshuggah. i can't bare to listen to anything or anybody else.

Oh, look...it's Ian. And he took what was meant to be a joke COMPLETELY SERIOUS.

Dude, just...why do you do this? You always look like such a tool. Do you really enjoy being hated by UG? Is that why you call UG a "bunch of aspies", because mocking those of us who find your opinions to be ridiculous makes you feel better?

Just. Stop. Now. Ian.

This man gets it.

Ian, however, does not.

I can listen to one extra band apart from those two, and that's Tesseract. Most of the other bands fade into one for me though and sound very identikit

So the problem you have with this is the editing?

Idgaf how edited something is as long as I enjoy listening to it. Listening to something live is a different thing but I don't do that often enough for it to matter because it's all ****ing expensive here

The athleticism and creativity involved in playing an instrument well can be really fun to witness, especially to other musicians.

Ian, consider yourself lucky I was still out drinking when this was closed, because if I'd come home drunk and this was still open I'd have probably banned you for making another stupid thread, then forgot all about it by now
Hey, look. Sigs are back.
