Djent


In order of release date, a list of what are in my opinion, the best Djent related albums. (I say 'djent related', because in many cases it is not their primary genre).

1. Meshuggah - Nothing
2002 (Math/Technical Thrash) Often labelled the first Djent album.
2. Sikth - The Trees Are Dead and Dried Out, Wait For Something Wild

Yeah I needed a list like that. I might have a couple recommendations for you, but this seems to be very selective. Good initiative.

Just found this list, and you have Uldreth's seal of approval for including Fellsilent (and because, of course, these are in general awesome).
