Week 7 — Djent

A genre a week turns heavy with Djent. The word sounds like “gent”; the music, “bloke.”

What I have to say

Djent is actually pronounced “jont” or “junt,” not “gent” like I originally thought (my bad). Which makes sense, given that the name is supposed to sound like the heavy-metal guitar strum (jont jont jont). In any event, this week was rocking like no other before it. The tunes left me inspired, my head banged quite a bit, and I was actually more productive with my work when I listened to djent. 
On a scale of zero to favorite, djent is a perfect favorite.
