I've never seen Gojira classified as prog. I might be wrong though

I never even implied that you shit cunt.

It has to be said.
Although, Tool and Meshuggah have produced stronger discographies and made greater contributions to metal.

It would be nice to see some love for Steven Wilson/PT, but it's hard to classify them as metal.

I think Obzen is better and more progressive than these 2 albums.
>>
>>54706986
I love Obzen, too. I think it has better songs than Catch-33. I can't name a song from Obzen that isn't absolutely monstrous. However, when I take Catch-33 as a whole, I think it's a better expression what the band is all about. It's all about forcing the listener through these extended repetitions of strange, intensely syncopated, dissonant stuff, and Meshuggah never did that better than Catch-33.

I've never listened to Uneven Structure

What are they like?

>>54708960
If you like Tesseract and Cynic, you'll like this album, because it's literally those two things put together
>>
>>54708919
This one so much!
>>
>>54709003
Probably the only decent modern djent band, more focus on atmosphere and less pointless chugging Without the gay vocals of TesseracT
>>
>>54708925
I recently relistened to Images and Words and was quite disappointed. It has some great songs on but a couple of real duds IMO.

Great albums

>>54706777
>>54706489
Pretty good albums.
I'd post Devin Townsend But IDK what would best represent him.
So I'll just post this instead.
>>
>>54712355
Can't say I like most of his works, but Deconstruction is pretty solid (and very fitting for this thread I guess).

>>54708736

Nope - apples to oranges. Sorry, try again. I expected you to at least say Cynic or something.

Dem (mostly) inappropriate clean vocals.

>>
>>54715856
>inappropriate

Are you really so young that you don't see the irony in criticizing a metal band as "inappropriate" in a metal general thread?
>>
>>54716461

I said the vocals were inappropriate, not the whole band. Reading comprehension?

>Djent

I guess you didn't listen to them did ya?
>>
>>54716969
Tesseract is not djent anymore?
>>
>>54716969

But TesseracT is djent though. The Contortionist - absolutely not.
>>
>>54717015
>>54717040

I guess you can call it djent if using palm muted rhythms is the only thing you define djent as. You listened to Altered State? I've never considered that djent.
>>
>>54716969
>Altered State
Muse with chugging and bad production. Not bad though
>Language
The same thing, except really really really badly done. Like Altered State made by a rich 14 year old in his bedroom

No, neither are djent, but they appeal to the same people. (children)

>>54717110
The cheap synth atmosphere is a staple of the genre now too
>>
>>54717110

It's djent.
>>
>>54717110
It's djent without the djenting, so I don't really know what to call it

It's still bad though
>>
>>54717197

Do your ears work?

No, children are off listening to asking alexandria and shit. Unless the trends have changed.
>>
>>54717290

What do you suggest people listen to instead?
>>
>>54717302
Have you been out any time in the last four years? Asking Alexandria hasn't been in for fucking ages, they all listen to periphery now

And I'm not even kidding. I like Periphery a bit but their entire fanbase is metal core kids. Even worse is that they all fucking think they're so smart for listening to it, when really it's still childish music for children.
>>
>>54712355
This.

For me, Leprous are probably the GOAT band right now, especially within prog metal.

Ever had that feeling that a band knew exactly what you were looking for in music? Because Bilateral and Coal are the only time I've rated two albums by the same band a 10/10.

Really nervous for The Congregation. If these guys pull that off too, they'll definitely solidify themselves as my favourite musical act, period.

I'm sorry but not sorry for the dicksucking.
>>
>>54717319
>I like the atmosphere and clean vocals and stuff
Muse

Or if I'm feeling less cynical, stuff like Arcane Roots, Chaos Divine, Breaking Orbit etc

>I like the prog
Can't go wrong with Leprous, Opeth, Enslaved, the list goes on

>I like the breakdowns
Go listen to Suicide Silence you babby
>>
>>54717362
>Have you been outside

I just don't pay attention to the trends any more. Last show I went to was a Meshuggah one in New York. I'm aware that lots of people like Periphery, but it's not the same crowd I'm speaking of. Periphery doesn't have anyone for the scene girls to latch onto. I did see Periphery live a couple years back, but I didn't really care for their latest singles or new album. Sounded bad.
>>
Voivod and Edge of Sanity are my favorite prog metal bands. Posting cause nobody mentioned them.
>>
>>54717435
Yeah there are far fewer females in this scene, but it's still the same shit. Periphery is literally metalcore with more complicated parts. And they're not even good complicated parts, they're just wanky.

I like them because they're catchy as fuck tho, same reason I like Ariana Grande. So not exactly the high-brow music that the kiddies think they are
>>
>>54716547
Okay, backpedal if you want, but still levying any criticism against a heavy metal band that's rooted in the notion that something they're doing is "inappropriate" is stupid. You sound like someone who professes to having exceptional reading comprehension so one would figure your vocabulary would be better.
