Hey guys I'd like to know what kind of instrumental bands you can reccomend. I just got into djent and I only know of Animals as Leaders, Worc, Bulb, Periphery 1 (Sadly not 2), and Tesseract. I really like the good production values and technicality. Plus the fact that it's heavy, but not dark.
Thanks!

Some of my stuff I guess... Wink

But yes. Intervals is magnificent, along with Animals As Leaders being GODS at their technicality - another one not mentioned would be The Francesco Artusato Project. They've got some weird djent-y tunes... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBdS2b6Wq8A

Thanks I look forward to looking these guys up. Oh yeah and you forgot some:
Idoler, The Algorithm, and Atlanticore. As well as some bands I don't consider djent but you guys do like Cloudkicker, Deely, Equals, and Fuge (the production makes it sound kind of like your standard death metal). Cloudkicker is more like Russian Circles than Tesseract. I wish Beacons was sold as a physical cd I think it is though but I don't remember.

Hey, I'm new to the forum. Been listening to Djent for a while now, started with Messugah, SikTh and Fellsilent when I was just a young lad. Recently been listening to a lot of Drewsif Stalin's Musical Endeavours. I think hes great at huge riffs!
