I'm looking for some djent or related prog bands with ONLY clean vocals. I can't stand anything that sounds too metalcore, and most of the popular djent bands are unappealing to me. I found Shattered Skies on here, and that EP is awesome. It seems like Circles is mostly clean, but something about them doesn't click with me. I'm not really into "ambidjent" or anything that is overly melodic and predictable, even though I want melody in the vocals. I'm into bands likes Hacride, Meshuggah, Mnemic, Sybreed, etc. instead of the usual bands talked about. I can't get into Fellsilent, Monuments, Sikth, Periphery, Vildhjarta, Tesseract, Veil of Maya, Born of Osiris, After the Burial, etc.

Just point something at me, and we'll see what sticks.

You named off two bands that I have specifically noted as clean, and discarded one other...the only thing I could recommend myself is some instrumental stuff. I'd like some more clean stuff myself, looking forward to further suggestion.

Deh.... Corelia? Maybe Cyclamen? Devin Townsend? If you like Meshuggah you'll probably enjoy Uneven Structure.

I highly suggest you check out Radiance. That's all clean vocals and heavy as fuck!

Yeah, Radiance, Intronaut, and Being are great. Also check out Jakub Zytecki and his band Disperse.
