|Rec Me Djent with Clean Vocals|
Been really digging some Djent lately. Looking for some recs for bands/albums with strong djent tones and clean/melodic vocals, similar to the bands/albums and/or songs below.
First came across djent (or a hybrid of it) with Tool's song "Jambi", back in the mid 2000's. That is one of my favorite Tool tracks of all time and definitely my fav off of 10,000 Days.
Kinda fell into this album...and loved everything about it (minus the saxaphones). The djent and ambient tones on this album, as well as Ashe O'Hara's vocals, make this album paramount.
Quickly purchased this album as well. As great as Altered State, but Daniel Tompkins brings a totally different vibe with a mix of clean and harsh vocals.
|4||Animals As Leaders|
The Joy of Motion
Picked this up from a used CD store on a whim. Not my favorite instrumental metal band, but I certainly dig their employment of djent.
|5||Voices from the Fuselage|
Was quite bummed when Ashe O'Hara left Tesseract. But Voices from the Fuselage is a good fit for his vocals. Dig this early EP.
Blinding White Noise: Illusion & Chaos
This may be my second favorite Daniel Tompkins album. The clean vocals on the Illusion CD are incredible, and the Chaos CD closes on a strong note.
The Space Between
Some great instrumental djent and progressive metal
|8||Twelve Foot Ninja|
The initial track, "One Hand Killing", presents some strong djent overtones. Also can't beat the vocal styling of this band.
Recently purchased this at McKays. I really dig this band and their use of strong djent tones. The vocals, when clean, are absolute amazing. The harsh vocals tend to become a bit too death metal for me, towards the end. But I still dig this album a lot.
|Textures has some good uses of cleans, mainly on Awake, Upwards, and Reaching Home|
|Check Novelists, bro.|
|So far have dug what I've listened to by Textures and Novelists tonight. Appreciate the great recs Relinquished and Get Low. Will check out Vola next.|
Time, The Valuator
though they are pretty much straight progmetal at this point The Contortionist are great as well
|Periphery - S/T|
Corelia - Nostalgia
Napoleon - Newborn Mind
|no other djent band even comes close to car bomb|
|Check Destiny Potato.|
|Destiny Potato |
|I second Uneven Structure for Februs alone. |
Such a beast of an album. Otherwise, check out SikTh if you haven't already.
|A lot of good recs in here.|
|"Otherwise, check out SikTh if you haven't already"|
SikTh for cleans? I mean they rule, but SikTh is some weird shit.
|Earthside's "A Dream in Static" is djenty with mostly clean features on vocals.|
|Vola‘s Inmazes and Monsters are very djenty and have mostly clean vocals. |
|Yeah, but they also have some incredible clean vocals when they are there (Part of the Fiction for example) |
|Oh, I need to go on a SikTh binge in the near future for sure. Part of The Friction is so incredibly good|
|Check out Spiritbox. They're probably a bit different than what you're looking for, but I'm sure you'll like them regardless. Start with their "Singles Collection".|
|I'd start with their self titled ep tbh. They're doing the Altered State thing better than Altered State imo|
|Earthside  |
|Wings Denied is pretty good too.|
|Making my way through the great recs. So far, my favorite is Time, the Valuator. |
|If you like the more poppy side of djent, then you'll probably enjoy Issues too. |
Also, In Motive was a short lived project that put out only two songs, but they're pretty good.
|Oh...and Disperse's second and third albums.|
|Earthside , you can also try Evergrey, Tremonti (not really Djent, but heavy music without screaming), Deftones, Wolves at the Gate, Wovenwar's first album, Disperse, Pentakill and Myrath. That's what I got for you bro|
|SitarHero, Wings Denied is a good call. Also, thanks for those two songs by In Motive. In return, check out the two released songs by Tranzhumanist - On Impact and Imperial.|
