Ladies and Djentlemen

I’m sorry that I haven’t been writing anything recently, so as an excuse; I made a 3×3 panel beginners guide to the metal sub-genre Djent.

Hope you’ll enjoy, or just find it interesting. 🙂

A small guide to djent

As I promised:I’ll post a couple of djent bands/songs for anyone to enjoy.

Meshuggah – Bleed There’s a very small chance that anyone not familiar with really hard metal is going to like this.

Periphery – Buttersnips This one (Or rather the whole band) is a little more kind on the ears, but again; that doesn’t mean anyone is going to like it.

TesseracT – Deception part II This one is yet again a little kinder on your ears, and you’ll probably survive even if you are a musically obvious 8’th grader.

TesseracT – Ambient sax solo This could probably be the most beautiful piece of djent I’ve ever listened to. It’s isn’t really heavy, and everyone should be able to listen to it.

Cloudkicker – Dysphobia Djent in its true form, showing both the ambient, futuristic sides and the rhythmic beats. No vocals, and slightly heavy.

Vildhjarta – Shiver This one isn’t for the faint of heart. It really shows how *Squee* can make any *djum djum djum* good.

Keith Merrow – Pillars of creation I found this guy some day back, and he simply blew my mind. No vocal this time either.

Abscent distance – Traces I found these two guys a week ago, and I’m impressed.

There’s an ocean of more djent bands out there, including sky harbour and such, but these are the ones I listen to the most.

If anyone also happens to wonder, the guy with the beanie, scarf and black hair is suppose to look like me, which I actually think he does… Well, except for being a cartoony, übber pale dude with arms the size of a thin stick.

Again: Sorry for not posting a lot, but I promise I’ll post something interesting before next Thursday.

Edit:

I am aware of the multiple spelling errors in the picture (So much for drawing it 4AM)

The biggest one is in frame 8:

“…The song is understandably called ‘Ambient sax solo’, and is probably the song with the-…”
