I don't use it
I'm just sick of most metal bands (or most artists in general) making music as a practice of a niche instead of art.

It goes too far both ways.

"Djent" is too far one way.

"It's all metal" is too far the other way.

Most everything is some form of traditional, thrash, death, black, prog, post- and power. Throwing a couple descriptive terms around it is fine. Calling yourself something that doesn't include any of those words might be taking it a bit too far.

Apparently it is a made up term... made up by some of the best guitarists in the world.

I'm impressed actually. I had the EP The Concept of Dreaming by Volumes and always thought it reminded me of Meshuggah. Now I know why...

With so many bands sounding alike and regurgitating the same shit I'm glad more bands are copying Meshuggah and their style. That being said I still think the metal categories and people who use them so strictly are comical.

Volumes have been described as Deathcore, Prog, Djent, Math Metal and Progressive Metalcore. Fucking stupid. I'd like to create a new category: Meshuggah-ish! hahahaha

Listening to that top 10 djent metal bands or whatever.

It's just mathcore/progressive death metal. And occasionally taking a lot of inspiration from MSI.

Hipsters can be such fucking faggots sometimes.

For the record the people who came up with the name didn't create it to describe a band or type of music. Below is the description I found and ironically my buddy was right it seems. I still prefer Messugah-ish to describe the actual bands. hahahaha

Djent is used to describe a certain kind of guitar tone characterized by medium-high gain, a quick-release noise gate to emphasize staccato playing, a cut of most bass below 200Hz for a tight low end, a slight boost around 800hz for clarity, and a noticeable boost around 1.6Khz to emphasize pick attack. When a two-octave power chord is palm-muted with this tone, a "djent" sound is created rather than the typical chunkier sound.

Djent also refers to repeated staccato playing of the lowest-pitch string on a detuned 6 string or 7 string guitar with a powerful attack such that the string goes very slightly sharp upon the pick's release from the string. Lower-gauge strings are used to facilitate this.

Djent tone is many times created using a Line 6 amp modeling product such as the Pod series or the Axe-Fx. When possible, an amp model such as the Big Bottom or Modern High Gain on these devices is used in conjunction with a modeled Tube Screamer in front. Engl and Mesa amplifiers are typically used when tube amplification is preferred.

Djent is widely acknowledged to have come first from Meshuggah, but Misha 'Bulb' Mansoor has arguably popularized the sound. Djent's typical uses give rise to a "genre" of djent that is characterized by hi-fi compressed production, polyrhythmic/staccato distorted riffs and ambient clean passages which make liberal use of 9 and other "jazzy" chords. Electronica influences such as glitchy percussion and synthesizers are also incorporated.

I guess that makes sense. It still sounds WAY too arty.

Djent, just like every genre of music:

A few winners, a whole lot of losers.

Yeah I think it's way technical and over my head. I just like the riffs and time changes. I do find it amusing I've seen that guy Misha out at many shows and had no idea he was such an internet legend. Small world, eh?
