I joined when I was 13 and that was 9 years ago now. Time flies. First post in years.

Anyway, who here likes/ knows what djent is?

It's a controversial topic, a sub-genre of progressive metal encompassing bands such as Periphery, Animals As Leaders, Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, After The Burial & Meshuggah. It incorporates low tuned guitars with 7, 8 or even 9 string guitars and focuses highly on polyrhythms, groove and production values.  

Who likes it? I love it. Let's get a discussion going.

It's controversial because a lot of people consider it a guitar technique and not a genre. The guitar tone and use of Extended range guitars make some believe it cannot be called a genre. I would disagree, but it's a topic of discussion within the scene.

I agree! Undoubtedly. If you can group a collection of bands with similar sounds, techniques & stylings, then it's a genre to me. If you like AAL, check out Mestis if you haven't already - also Our Dogs Were Astronauts & Nik Nocturnal. Might like them!
