okay but have you heard some of their other music? Some of their songs ...it seems like that's all they do. What classifies something as Djent?

Djent, in its original meaning, is a heavily digitally processed power chord, and is the name for an elastic, syncopated guitar riff.[4] Djent as a style has been described as featuring heavily distorted, palm-muted guitar chords alongside virtuoso soloing,[2] and is characterized by rhythmic and technical complexity.[7] Another common attribute of the style is computerized sound, as many of its acts, such as Periphery and Textures, started their careers recording at home and self-producing[4] or incorporate electronic music influences, like TesseracT and Animals as Leaders. Furthermore, the use of seven or eight string guitars is common in the genre, which provides the music its characteristic lower-end, heavier feel.

Both work for me smile.gif Digging your band too! Djent as a Genre seems to be running quickly towards a degree of fungibility simply due to the characteristics being so distintive. I'm a big fan of the style as a whole but I can see it starting to run out of ideas a bit as the form itself is somewhat restrictive. Something similar happened in Death Metal and Melodic Death Metal as the form itself can strangle the bands under it simply do to what is "permitted" in the genres and what isn't.

I hope that new bands (like yours for example) embrace new elements to expand the genre. In doing so they will become genres in themselves. The level of fragmentation is natural and restrictive forms have to fragment to a degree as they are often so resistant to change that any change merits a new name/title/genre.

So I'd say embrace crazy/wacky/forbidden/even uncool elements in your bands music/style! You may be leading the way in a new Genre smile.gif

Eh, thats a bit over complex

Easiest way to define Djent is syncopated single note rhythms. Thats what people mean when they say Djent almost 100% of the time, although the term actually refers to the heavy metallic palm muted chords played by Meshuggah, and other music like that (Frederik Thordenhal originated the term/ Misha popularized it - see "Aztec Two Step") . Most Djent bands have few if any of those giant metallic chords, ironic really that before a "genre" even starts it almost completely ignores it's roots laugh.gif

Vildjharta have a fair amount of those chords, Periphery some, Tesseract not so much, Animals as Leaders not so much, so its hit and miss with the favor going to miss.

The tone has gotten ridiculous, if you hang around any forums like SevenString I have heard some people just take it to the extreme, I mean like guitar tones with so much crackle and pop to it, it hurts to listen too, even though it has an amazing production.

In reference to the tone, Djent is all in the picking hand, every bit of it comes from there. If you got the right attack, any tone is a djent tone.

Axe-Fx helps though tongue.gif

When I say Djent, I mean that dead note you hear, almost completely muted out. Think about if a band only used Djenty chords though. That would be boring. LOL So I mean a more broad sense...what Brett is saying, I guess.

Precisely why its not a genre too, such a small minute defining characteristic, not enough to cover the entirety of the music.
