Hi guys! I have listened to some bands that are considered Djent like Periphery and Meshuggah but I am not very into this style and when I found Cosmin's new collab (Check it HERE), I wondered which are the top guitar players that play this style...

Could you please post names and youtube links here?

I'm enjoying Corelia's guitar work a lot! His solos are very fresh.

The best? Why Stevie Ray Vaughan of course! biggrin.gif

...What?

Really though, the first time I heard the "Djenty" sound that Djent is known for, it reminded me of a lower pitched version of SRV's Stratocaster.

Check it out.

ahh yeah, I know these guys, they are so technical. I never enjoyed too much their songs but I'm impressed of their technique.

I can't notice the connection but I enjoyed hearing SRV again... he was AWESOME.

Yes! That is what the "djent" sound is supposed be, right?

So does this make SRV a pioneer of djent? blink.gif .... laugh.gif
