At what point does prog meet Djent? Is Djent prog? Tesseract are one of the bands who early on made waves in the relatively new (and mostly online) scene of Djent. But as Amos explains in this video, they immediately started to evolve into other forms of progressive music. Keeping the tight, polyrhythmic guitars but getting more melodic in the vocal department has caused the band to reach even broader audiences. Djent was somehow born out of the progressive tendencies of bands like Meshuggah, but the beauty of the genre is that it continues to progress beyond those sounds and even more combinations of flavors are making their way into modern progressive music.
