    When Djent comes out the other side...

    ...and becomes something listenable:

    That was really cool! I do not get the djent reference though?

      It has several djent "touchpoint" things like the spacey guitar parts and the emo-esque clean/growly vocal switches, though the clean vocals sound like Hetfield instead a whiny little bitch.

      My first thought on hearing it was like "Huh. Djentmmu Borgir".

        IMHO it sounds like FF meets Shadows Fall.

        Here is a kickass Shadows Fall song

          Been listening to these guys for a couple of years now. Pretty "abrasive"!

          One of my favorite track :

              I really dug these guys when they came up in my Spotify recs a while ago, but then I forgot about them; thanks for reminding me.

                I dig this quite a bit, thanks!

                As soon as the vocals started, all I could think was "Blackened in the end...."

                Love the synths and the breakdown is pretty sick. This song would be so much more slammin' if the kicks and bass actually had some low end involved. I'm going to get this album, hopefully it's a bit more full on there. Good shit!

                  If you said to me, "This is the latest from Soilwork," I'd fully believe you.

                  Pretty tasty, though!

                        Yeah, that's a good call. It has some of the same elements of that underrated gem.

                          Soilwork (which I love) is way "softer", IMO. Especially since their last albums. Listen to "Death Diviner", for instance.

                              can't see the Djent reference, a lot more in common with FF

                                The video was really slick until 3:20-3:40. It's like a djent Call of the Wintermoon played more seriously hybridized with a really devoted Riddick fan film type thing. That tumbling down the hill part had me dying though. The aesthetic was a little generic mid 2010s sci fi Mass Effect, but it was at least as well done as a Sy-Fy channel original movie (which is a compliment for music videos for bands at that level/budget). Yeah, some of the costuming was obviously paintball gear but it was impressive. The overhead tracking drone shot of the dude running and shit in the beginning was rad. Shots like 2:44 and 2:59 were super well done.

                                But fuck. 3:20-3:40. They clearly only had 3-4 seconds worth of footage of the guy tumbling down a hill from multiple angles. But to make the hill look more massive they just looped it/chopped it up. And tilted the camera to make the slope look more extreme on top of it.

                                Which is a shame, because they legitimately had a volunteer stuntman dude willing to tumble down a hill for them. He sold the tumbling pretty well too. It was a bummer that that was the climax of what was otherwise an exceptionally tight cohesive video for an indie/small label band.

                                Wasn't too crazy about it sonically. Just not my thing. The Black Era croony Hetfield part was actually a really excellent impression, but the rest sounded like a bunch of budget Miseration/Scar Symmetry/Solution 45 clones. Hetfield imitation was super convincing though, though not my preferred era of Hetfield.

                                  The guitar tone at the very beginning is kinda djenty too. But yeah, I think it sounds good. I like it. His clean vox kinda make me think he listened to Metallica a lot as a kid.

                                    Digging the FF/Gojira parts mixed with Papa Het tribute vox. Yep, that's some good stuff!

                                        Guitar tone is total djent stuff. All the riffs being almost entirely tabable with 0s adds to it, too. Definitely the first two thirds of the track, anyway. Gets a bit more metal in the final third.

                                        Yeah, vocals sound pretty Hetfield when he's not growling. Like end of Justice, beginning of Black Album era.

                                              I’ve listened to the Nija album a couple times through now. Cool stuff all the way through

                                                That was a long time ago.

                                                  I stopped listening to them around the same time as Leon. Listening to A Predator’s Portrait right now. I forgot how good this album was
