It always gives me a laugh when I see the bewildered expression on peoples face when I tell them I listen mainly to metal music. Metal music isn’t very popular where I live (this is mostly a country music area although there is a fair bit of love for classic rock too) and I grew up listening to almost nothing but country so it tends to surprise people I tell people I am a metalhead, especially since I don’t look like your stereotypical metalhead with tons of tattoos, piercings and dress in nothing but black. I especially enjoy their confused expressions when I tell them the various sub-genres of metal that I enjoy like symphonic metal, celtic metal, viking metal, black metal, power metal, ect. Well, this morning I was the one with the surprised look on my face as I had never heard of the style of metal known as Djent until I saw the video below.
Youtuber SteveTerreberry made this amazing video below of him playing the music from the first couple of levels of Super Mario Bros in the style of Djent. So what is Djent exactly? Djent is a heavy metal spinoff of traditional progressive metal (here is a more detailed description from Urbandictionary). Anyway, whether you are a metalhead like I am or not, as long as you at least like Super Mario Bros, you should check out the video below and let me know what you think in the comments!
