Rob and Fluff are the two guys behind one of the most brilliant ideas of the guitar-driven world we've seen in a while - binary metal.

Basically, it's "like morse code, but more metal." The deadly duo has recently unveiled an exclusive premiere of binary metal, composing a chugging track using nothing but guitars and binary code.

They have successfully managed to not only invent a new genre, eerily similar to djent, but also a new way of text messaging. A cantaloupe is also involved in the mixture.

So without further ado, the clip is right below, gaze at it in awe.

    If you're having djent problems I feel bad for you son, they've got 24 frets but they only use 1.

    2 comments below; a medalled comment making a joke about djent and deathcore. Excuse me while I use my highly extensive range of internet lingo that I learned from educational sites such as Tumblr and 4chan: *ahem* U MAD BRO?

    This is why 90% of core bands suck. The 10% being bands like my band, Bullet For My Valentine.

    Rob is slowly becoming the next UG Celebrity. I dunno, Slackerbitch is still #1 in my book.

    I wonder if the tabs would be in hexadecimal binary. Gives a whole new meaning to E5.
