This is my short review if someone wants to read... They're in order by my ranking.

1. Structures - Divided by: Very aggressive and technical music. Except the punk-rocky vocals in some tracks (and some funny retarded kids in the mosh pit in live videos Laughing out loud ), but still very good.

2. Noiseware - Wake up and Soar [EP]: Great band from India, very good tone on the 8 strings. It's aggressive too, but has some slow clean parts. Can't wait the full length album...

3. Uneven Structure - Februus: I was really disappointed at the first listening by multiple reasons. I really loved the 8 [EP], so this is much gayer (not just because of the clean vocals...), has too much ambience and also boring. I think the music is too quiet for the vocals. But I keep listening the first 3 track in one piece, and it's very good.

4. Vildhjärta - Måsstaden: I was more disappointed by this than Februus... Vildhjärta was the 1st djent band I started to listen, and this album is a lot different than that was... I think Luciani has the best clean vocals in this "scene", so it was a big mistake to change him. This new clean singer can't even pronounce the words correctly, it fucks my ears every time I try to listen Traces. It was really good to read some other peoples' post where they pissed off too, because the album teasers consisted a lot different music... But apart from these it's still good and this dark mood is enjoyable, even though they ruined some good old songs (Traces, Deceit, etc.). My friend and I hope they will release the instrumental version of this album. It will be much better without vocals.

5. Animals as Leaders - Weightless: This is much better than their first album. The music is really heavy and the higher parts/solos are weightless indeed. Also like the bassy tone. I'm not a big fan of this style (I'm a Meshuggah fan, so I prefer heavy music.), but it's a very good job.

(Sry for grammatical mistakes, English isn't my native language. Smile )

Just counted the list of djent bands' releases in my actual top albums of 2011, in total there are 18 bands on there lol

But for the top 5 for the site, I chose Vildhjarta, Uneven Structure, Born Of Osiris, SeeS and Substructure

Choosing 5 is simply impossible.. I think i would have a much easier time choosing like 7
