What the hell is "djent?"

I see some of you people use the word when referring to the tones of bands like meshuggah,
but i have no idea what the hell you mean.

Could someone inform me?

Dave didn't like the song on the radio. So he killed a little girl.

It's that sound you get when you palm mute with razor tight, high gain tone.

DJENT! DJEN-DJENT!

It's just people's way of trying to describe what that sound is like, using words. Think of say... 'Sad But True'. The main rhythm. Sorta like that.

Actually, it's really that twang sound when you hit the string with your pick really hard and fast without palm muting but muting the note right after it's been hit. Listen to Meshuggah's Catch 33 for some major low F djent djent. Or bulb's music on www.soundclick.com/bulb you can definitely hear it well there. it's like a Quack in the pick attack.
It's super easy to get it with a Line 6 pod, but I'm pretty sure all you need is a boost pedal with the drive at 0 and tone turned up. That's the way you do it on the podxt atleast to bring it out.

What the hell is the for? Nothing funny in the explantion.

Your description is just one interpretation.

It's essentially the sound you get with tight gain and a heavy stroke. Muting is usually involved.

Yep. I went to that site since I had listened to bulb's "Icarus Lives!" and was blown away by it. I listened to about 20 of his songs on that site. Amazing. Vince and Bulb are definitely my 2 favorite musicians on this forum (well, and Buzz, of course). How does Bulb get his guitar to sound like that, anyway? I'd be interested to know. I get more tradition metal, thrash metal, or death metal sounds on my guitar(s).

Djent is overrated. It's nice but this whole fanatic fanboy'ism is annoying it's like some form of religion
