    Early After the Burial and Volumes (I assume you have to already be familiar with Meshuggah stuff)

    I second Mnemic and also Textures Drawing Circles and Silhouettes albums. They aren't djent, but if Meshuggah is getting tossed around in here they should be too.

    Soooo, I’m never super good with metal subgenres, but how about Keith Merrow? I still listed to his first album non-stop. And is the Human Abstract something like what you’re looking for? Or are they too mathy?

    The Human Abstract is kinda too far away from what I'm after, basically I just want double octave powerchord breakdowns in the songs haha

    I never understood why Entities didn't get more hype. They were pretty early on in the primetime era of the djent scene, and I think they sound better and more original than loads of other bands out there with larger fan bases :shrug:
