The Great Djent Debate

Most people know I'm not a fan of the "categories" of metal and find the debates very humorous. So when I told a friend that Periphery was my favorite prog cd of 2010 and he said "Dude, they're Djent" I just cracked up.

I know what Djent is but never thought it was the new metal category. I asked him other than Meshuggah and Periphery who else is Djent or uses that style and he said there are tons of bands out there thanks to Misha of Periphery. Once again I cracked up. I was like don't you mean Meshuggah? He said no. They created it but Misha of Periphery is known as the King of Djent.

Just curious what people on here think. If you wiki Djent only a band called Benevolent comes up. I found some interesting clips on youtube including a dude who calls himself Hydrodjent who absolutely rules.

So who created it, who made it huge and is it the coolest metal category of all time? Let the debate begin...

Top 10? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xabuJ81r11A

I find Djent to be incredibly boring, despite liking the basic ideas behind it.

Never heard of Djent until this thread but based on the clips it sounds like exactly the kind of tech death that I hate. Not my bag.

EDIT: #1 on there was Animals As Leaders? Shit, if that's what good djent sounds like then I DEFINITELY hate djent.

I like a few of the "djent" bands, but the genre itself is a joke. To me it's just progressive metal - I mean how many years has Meshuggah been around before people started calling them djent?

I just started hearing this term and didn't understand what the fuck it meant. But yeah, basically just seems like some hip term for progressive death metal.

I think its a made up term.

But I like bands like Protest the Hero, Between the Buried and Me, and Cynic, that have similar attributes in their music. Also, Behold the Arctopus came to mind when I listened to this album. It sounds like a weird corruption of Death, Atheist, and shitty deathcore.

That being said, I don't like any of the bands in that video except Animals as Leaders. And I only like 1/10 of the bands in this new genre of progressive tech death(core) whatever, like Allegaeon, Obscura, and a few songs by The Faceless.

Sounds like a stupid new sub-sub-genre for people that think prog metal is to broad. Fuck that, it's all music.

Yeah, I always find stuff I like when I type "music" into pandora. My mix station for Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, David Allan Coe, and Behemoth is awesome, cause, I mean, its all music right?
