    can anyone help me find some djenty metal that isn't overflowing with screaming and growls? i don't mind it much but too much of it just gets annoying after a while.

    I think it's harder to find djent without annoying clean vocals, but there is a lot out there.





    besides that, just look around on soundcloud for a while. Search "djent" and you'll find plenty of good stuff.

    EDIT:
    Djent is best left either instrumental or with growls/screams. Unless they're dissonant, I really dislike clean vocals over djent.
    AAL is awesome for that, but should be pretty obvious...
    EDIT+:
    I think Meshuggah should do more instrumentals or Thordendal should do a solo album.

    I agree, I do not enjoy Periphery's newest singer.

    Dude there was a lot of screaming on Sol Niger Within. :scratch:


    Tesseract are one example, Circles have a really good vocalist who does a lot of singing don't think I've heard him do much screaming.

    Don't know about a new one, but his first one is called Sol Niger Within and came out in the mid-90s.

    Tesseract don't have much screaming, in response to the OP.

    I was thinking this the other day. Even with the more 'screamy' vocals, the Periphery tune I checked on YouTube the other day didn't quite convince me, though I might persist.

    I also checked a couple of Cloudkicker tunes. I like the sound, but both being in the same key and starting in a similar way, the only real change seemed to me to be rhythmic. That'd be classed as a remix in the dance/electronica world- not a different tune!

    I liked the sound of Vildharta and the instrumentation of it- until the vocals came in!

    I'm starting to wonder if the whole Djent thing is being blown up too much as a genre, rather than just the odd tune. But it's early days yet (please don't shoot me down for that! :D It's first impressions!).
