    Now you're just being silly. Don't ever bring Morbid Angel into a djent thread.

    So let me straighten out the important thing here first.

    Im a fan of djent, most of the stuff i listen to at the moment is djent, i enjoy the groove, the tones that bands are exploring, the instrumentals, the players who are all incredibly talented, the bands coming out of it.

    But my question is how long do we think the djent phenomenon will last? Most of my friends now listen to it, disregarding the fact that insanely amazing bands like the facless are prepping for a new album release. Some of them haven't heard Crack the Skye which i view as a masterpiece of an album.

    I love djent, but it seems that everywhere i look now people are talking about it, every new band i see is playing it (including myself) and i do worry that in some places its starting to become another 'scene' thing.

    So...how long do we think this particular genre will ride the frontal popular wave??

    If you like it, you like it. No need to change because its becoming the next big thing. Just because someone likes what you like and hasn't heard what is in YOUR opinion is the best thing since sliced bread doesn't mean they' re any less a fan or more so a poser.

    Musics music, enjoy the fucker. :yesway:

    it's been a "scene thing" since its inception, let's not kid ourselves here.

    that said, it's just music at the end of the day. Djent bands and artists just do what they do. but it's also very easy to tell who got in it for the trend and who is actually trying to do something with the music.

    I definitely understand what you're trying to say; It's eventually gonna be 'mainstream' like deathcore became. You can tell who's trying to do it for the trend when they call themselves a 'djent' band or project, or when they over emphasize the actual 'djent' technique in their music. Many of the best 'djent' bands use actual djent very sparingly, in the right moments, which creates a great melodic flow. Now that it's becoming popular, you're gonna come across kids picking up guitars just so they can be in a 'djent band/project.'

    But you also shouldn't change your musical taste based on what everyone else listens to; I despise how mainstream deathcore has become and how some bands have ruined the genre by setting the standards too low, yet I still listen to a few bands, mainly the tech/prog deathcore. It's really only 'scene' if you think it's scene :p

    Crack the Skye is Mastodon's worst album, IMHO. I preferred them when they were more sludge and less prog, instead of the other way around.

    I can't see Djent lasting as long as something like metal.

    Even though I don't listen to a large amount of "djent" I think it would be great for it to become the scene. People who come up with negative connotations to that clearly have nothing better to do than badmouth obviously skilled and expressive musicians.

    You don't consider "djent" metal?

    Nope, sorry.

    Also, I don't give two hoots about the skill, I just don't like it. That doesn't mean other people can't like it, people will think what they want to think.

    I consider it metal. I mean, it has distortion, dirty vocals, and whatever else. It isn't morbid angel, but it isn't bjork. Don't be a party pooper.


    Also, how many people don't get that "djent" isn't a genre? It's simply progressive metal.

    Me thinking it isn't metal doesn't mean people can't say/think it's good music. It's not horrible, I just don't see how it's metal.

    I'm not going to go in to a debate - see you guys in another thread that isn't about djent. :lol:

    It's another dumb bandwagon full of crappy bands that will be irrelevant in 3 or less years when another trend comes along. Then the handful of original and awesome musicians will stand out, so that those who still give a shit and weren't average bandwagoneers will keep appreciating and enjoying good music. It happens with every movement and trend in every genre. Something new comes in, erupts, then people get bored and move on to something 'cooler', while the previous movement still retains some sort of influence over whatever takes it's place.
