    I for the most part don't really enjoy any djent groups outside of Periphery, but I will be a bit sad to see it become a scenie beanie thing.

    I don't really see why, personally I only really listen to AAL, Merrow and Bulb's instrumental stuff with any frequency. Doubt you would call anyone else I listen to "djent". I just don't get why people don't want it to be popular, because to me that seems like the "scene" move, wanting it to stay underground. Personally I think it would be great for these bands to get that exposure because I enjoy them. I may find the majority of djent boring, but the musician's are (mostly) very skilled and deserve the attention.

    the bottom line is that if you stop listening to a band for any other reason than the band's music getting worse you suck at listening to music.

    if you like djent, listen to it as long as it does something for you.

    There are always gonna be some crappy bands who jump on it as a trend, much like deathcore. But there will be a tangible distinction between the original bands and the rubbish bandwagon-jumpers... the first bands (Periphery, Tesseract etc) will be the ones that still have fresh ideas and the other bands won't be able to match up to that.

    Besides, you can be one of the people to say:

    "Pfft, I liked that before everyone else."

    Wow, I suck at typing. Like hard.

    But it's not so much that people will hate that it's getting more popular, more that the genre's becoming bloated with less good bands and what not. I see the current groups getting more popular, but I don't see them getting as popular as the lesser groups same with deathcore. Idk, I honestly, couldn't care less, I just care that I'm going to hear a bunch of shitty Bulb wannabes.

    as stated above "djent" isn't really a genre and people that like it often have no idea what the word stands for in the first place (which is not syncopated rhythms or open b strings:rolleyes:).

    actually i hope it sells out. i mean it's not wrong for me when progressive music has an influence on so called mainstream bands. knocking down boundaries is always a good thing.

    It's like that Slam Death Metal fad 5 or 6 years ago. There will still be some bands doing it, but the fad will die down, and kids will move on to the next fad.

    and what about the people who genuinely enjoy the sound?

    Seriously I can't even believe I'm the one defending here, all of a sudden so much forced ignorance it seems. I only even like a few of the bands and don't really sound like them with my own playing.

    These "slam deathmetal fad bands" are still arising on a regular basis.

    People talk about fads here as though they are the bane of music. They are not at all, quite the opposite. Music much like fashion developes in circles.

    Thrash was a "fad" on the 80s. Metal was a "fad" when sabbath started influencing bands.

    It's progs turn again in heavy music. Rush used off timings in their hey day. It's obvious to hear the influence.

    Music has always been this way it just so happens that 80% of the SS.org userbase haven't been alive long enough to actually see the full circle come to close yet...

    If they genuinely enjoy the sound, then they have all the right to enjoy the good bands that make the genre of music they enjoy.
