Sphere of influence: Vildhjarta
got-djent.com's been around for over five years now, and the scene has grown immensely in that time - both in size and influence. A lot of new bands are drawing influence from some of the big names that started it all. Others are developing new styles, combining various genres with elements of djent.
In this new series titled Sphere of influence, we'll be showcasing artists with common influences and similar styles. For our first post, we'll look artists whose music is heavily influenced by Vildhjarta. If you dig their unique sound, have a listen!
Vildhjarta aren't heavy enough for you? Try these guys. More deathcore, more brutality, more blast-beats. And BLEGH, of course.
How about a little more melody? Check out the teaser for Abiogene's upcoming second album. Their debut even had a bit of a black metal vibe to it.
Melody is also what sets apart Vanora's sound.
MTWHDTDTIC takes the sound way into avant-garde territory. With a name like that, we'd expect nothing less. Not for the faint-hearted.
Jonnah are from Hudiksvall, Sverige, which is also where the guys from Vildhjarta live. Coincidence? I don't think so! Unfortunately the project is currently on hold.
Atena's take on the sound generally features a slower pace and a different vocal approach.
Through Lifeless Eyes build on a metalcore and deathcore substrate, with regular atmospheric interludes.
These South Americans are clearly huge Vildhjarta fans. That's great, so are we! The vocal style is quite different, but it works remarkably well. Keep an eye out for their upcoming album.
With Norway, Sweden and now Finland, three of the five Nordic countries are represented. This can't be a coincidence! Indistinct bring melody and atmosphere. No vocals... yet! Look out for their upcoming EP.
We hope you enjoyed our little compilation of Vildhjarta-influenced artists. Did we miss any great bands that should have been on this list? Let us know in the comments! 'Sphere of influence' is something new we're trying out, so feedback is very welcome. We are already working on a couple of new posts in this series, so stay tuned for those. If you have a great idea for a list, let us know as well.
