Ok, I'll give you that. In all honesty, I figured I might as well get the "ugh...Djent" out of the way to start off.

I listened to the song TS put in the OP. It's just some typical "Djent riffs" with clean ambient guitar and some scale runs every so often. What's so unique about them? It's standard Djent formula without any sense of progressive about it.

Sometimes I wonder if you ever use critical listening, Sam.

Djent is not progressive. Just the new iteration of metalcore and deathcore. All flash no substance.

I listened very critically. I'm sorry you disagree.


But seriously, answer my question. What makes this band so special? Why are they "progressive"?

Maybe because their albums are progressing towards the dumpster?

I always thought of it as 'technical nu-metal with pop elements'. When I think metalcore I think of mostly pop music based off melodeath.

If you can't work out what genre to call it, call it Progressive something or Post something; it'll all work out in the end.
