I personally do not listen to Djent im honestly no sure wtf it even means...i do know it has spwaned 8 and now even 10 string things that are called guitars. Im also pretty positive that these guys get some guy on the horn at Berkeley and ask them what time signature they are in and if its fast or wonky enough.

Also lets just consolidate our guitarist/bassist (Cringe worthy)

Why add more strings when you haven't mastered the original 6?

has this shit gone too far? (Imo, absolutely)

Is it killing metal? (Imo, not really just making it smell funny)

However this must be wonderful for the kids who dwell in GuitarCenter Chuggachuggachuggachugga while listening to Mechugga.

Pretty bad when Kerri King can be like "oh look, they have learned how to chug" lol

I like Meshuggah and Periphery. I don't really care about all the other stuff.

i think like with most genres of music, there are going to be bands that do cool things with the style while a lot of other bands pump out a bunch of generic sounding stuff

djent being no exception

I can agree with that. And some of Meshuggas stuff is pretty decent but then it just goes of the rails....i cant wait til Nickelback follows suit! Oh brother.....

Because super low tunings

Anyway I haven't approved of any djent I have heard and therefore dislike it
I have nothing important to say
#8
Yea they are trying to upset the balance between the guitar midrange and the Bass lower register....it is nearly like a Bruce Jenner situation except with instruments....something just dont jive! If you need to go sub B tuning then you seriously need to reconsider why you are "playing" music.

I like periphery. I don't really see why anyone cares about a band's "effect on music" whatever the fuck that's supposed to mean. Just don't listen to shit you don't like. Boom, problem solved.

Then im sure you wouldn't care if somone started a pig farm to the right side of your house and a Cabbage farm to the left?

They both stink like hell and will absolutely lay waste to any type of property value you thought you had.


Music is much the same!!!! It is our HOUSE!!! And basically our RELIGION.

what defines the difference between progressive rock and progressive metal from regular rock and metal? I could look it up, but I'm curious what individuals think. I only ask because they say Djent is a spinoff of progressive metal

They went light on the metal and heavy on the paint thinner?

You are right in that djent is bad, but what you seem to fail to grasp (at random), is the greatness of Meshuggah. You don't misspell their name, this isn't TesseracT or Bulb bro:


(I wrote a philosophy paper about Socrates in Apology,Crito/Kierkegaard/etc and this song, btw):

been listening to metal , well since there's been metal and can't say i think much of them either. cookie monster vocals and low pitched somewhat messy sounding music just doesn't do it for me. of course if you like them then more power to you i know they have a lot of fans.


That is simply because your ears are not refined enough, and you do not possess the Rational Gaze.

Dick probably doesn't even know the difference between brutal technical death metal and technical brutal death metal.

1. Pantera
2. Metallica
3. ICP
4. Disturbed
5. BMTH
