I know I am very biased against Djent music ( and I use the music term loosely), but it seems to me the entire genre has become a parody of itself.
The video that made me think of this was this video of a guy demoing a couple of Kemper profiles.
The fact that he’s trying to look bad-ass playing with one finger got me.
Then there’s this video. Get some over-the-top acting dead guy, and throw in some eye candy to keep you interested.
To me, it seems like the entire genre is a parody of itself, like the 80s hair bands became…but they could actually play their instruments, not bang on one string and fret with one hand.
