    This shit is super popular around here (locally, where I live) and it sucks.

    I needed a place to talk shit because there are a lot of people that dig it here (again, locally). Then again, maybe it's popular round these parts as I'm fairly removed from metal as a whole at this point.

    So, what are your guys' thoughts on this musical abortion?

    It's growing everywhere. I hate it.
    I post on sevenstring.org and they love it over there.

    I also hate how death metal is all about playing lightspeed and sweeping and picking as fast as humanly possible. Good god, write good songs!
    when I listen to dm I want catchy and kickass riffs! Not arpeggio after arpeggio
    Another gay ass thing that is starting up is the use of 8 string guitars. fucking stop!!!

    Amen. I prefer both though. But songwriting always trumps everything else.

    I heard this band on SiriusXM when I was driving with a friend. I'm always amazed when fairly competent musicians can put so much effort into writing horrible music.

    Djent is a good method to sort the wheat from the chaff at social happenings.

    "- Ah, you're into metal? Interesting... What bands do you favour, my good sir?
    - You know, I'm really into this djent thing..."

    yes, it does

    it's not the only modern style of """metal""" that is absolutely inexplicably awful either

    try venturing into the andy sneap forum sometime (i love the forum for all the knowledge about mixing/production/recording the guys have, but their general taste in music is pretty bad – and that forum is the sole exposure i usually have to the "heavy" "music" the "kids" are "into" these days) and seeing what kind of music they're discussing



    like i mean holy shit who on wuotan's green earth thinks this is listenable, much less Good Music?

    note how the bass is actually PROGRAMMED
    pretty sure the drums are programmed too, if they're not then they're at least sample-replaced and quantized
    how the FUCK did it come to this

    wow, even disregarding the fetid shitgarbage music, this is one of the worst mixes (or masterings, probably) i have ever heard

    listen to all that fucking compressor breathing

    this is also LITERALLY unlistenable, or at least verging on it

    it is audial torture

    i mean i can not actually, irl, stand listening to this for longer than about 10 seconds at a time

    yeah

    fUck

    real death metal is made on 6-string guitars tuned to C or B and that's that

    fuck everything modern so fucking much

    I was going to mention that, its kinda kinda funny though, djent for the most part is just heavier progressive metal.

    metal-archives has a surprisingly good grasp on what's metal and what's not

    it's a very subtle distinction but you Feel it in your Heart if something is metal or not and i personally very rarely disagree with m-a
