(Ramblings from TheMadIsraeli . . .)
Until yesterday, I’d been a bit scarce around NCS recently, mainly due to illness, school being fucking lame, and the well being rather dry in terms of good shit for me to review. I’ve only got five major reviews on the horizon that I give a damn about at the moment — Vallenfyre, Demisery, Vildhjarta, Vektor and Ever Forthright. So as you probably guessed, this ain’t none of that reviewin’ shit. Instead I’m gonna just talk. Talk about stuff within metal, within the scenes, share my thoughts.
I figured a good start would be to talk about this djent thing. I just reviewed a djent album in Uneven Structure’s Februus (here), and two of my above-mentioned choices for future reviews, Vildhjarta and Ever Forthright, are also djent bands. I know that before I hopped on board with NCS they covered Ever Forthright quite a bit here, though Vildhjarta not so much. Fuck, part of the reason I think I was picked up to write for NCS was to be the designated “djent guy”, since it was an interest of mine outside the tastes I shared with the other writers. So I thought, finally, I might try to collect my thoughts about djent.
