06.02.2011 With one of the best EPs ever released by any band, TesseracT will be remembered forevermore for helping to define djent as a seperate genre. Or maybe not, its a pretty stupid term actually. Anyway, who cares?

This is forward-thinking, innovative metal of the highest caliber. Beautiful and also frighteningly heavy, Concealing Fate is a great teaser of the band's upcoming LP One. Mandatory for anyone reading this.

Rating: 9 An extremely good progressive EP. Probably the best 5 bucks you can spend if you're into tech/math/progressive metal. Production is out of this world. The vocals really set the EP off. Very powerful and fits the heaviness well.

Rating: 9 This one did not make it to the awards because other staff don't like it or not enough staff have heard it before the awards?

I assume not enough of us heard it. I don't check into prog at all anymore, so I wouldn't know anything about new releases.

Of course, if you heard it in time to suggest it, you could have posted a brief description of the album in the thread for users to suggest albums for the awards.

obviously I missed out on it until today because of jup's wicked recommendation. I've been here long enough to make my nominations (Grey Waters) (=

Rating: 7 Hugely enjoyable but thoroughly overrated EP. Basically ripping off SikTh (right down to Justin Hill's vocal style and those Meshuggah-isms) but doing it in a subdued and accessible way. I prefer SikTh's weird bent on the style and use of cleaner guitar (which gives them far more versatility and I suppose relegates them from the ridiculous "Djent" genre of which SikTh have undoubtedly influenced in someway or another - a nice legacy I suppose) but good stuff anyway.

So what is "djent"? Just another term for math metal or something? I'm confused.

I think it has something to do with the guitar tone and style of play (something to do with palm... muting... or something... I ain't no guitarist). Basically if it sounds like Meshuggah then it's probably Djent coz that's where it began apparently.

The term "Djent" is supposedly the sound which the guitar makes: "djent djent djent"

Is that "dee-ent" or "gent"? Or something else. >>

No clue. It sounds pretty silly to me either way.

Agreed. Anyway, suppose I should let the discussion continue regarding the EP (which I haven't heard and probably won't bother checking out), just thought I'd try to gain some knowledge regarding a "genre" which apparently isn't defined anywhere and I've only heard of on this site. :S

Yeah I've seen the term dotted around but only explored it when I saw Jerry's staff pick. It's a great EP anyway and worth looking into. I'd be more impressed if I hadn't been a SikTh fan for the past 6 or 7 years.
