While answering a number of fan questions on Twitter, Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe expressed his opinions on “djent,” a popular internet term referred to as a metal sub-genre inspired by Meshuggah.
In a series of tweets, Blythe commented,
“THERE IS NO SUCH FUCKING THING AS ‘DJENT’. ITS NOT A GENRE. I’m sorry, it’s STUPID AS FUCK. Metal already WAY over classified. Look dude- all this BULLSHIT ‘Deathcore’ & ‘Djentcore’ & fucking ‘Cantplayinreallifebutcanonacomputer-core’ it’s just a NAME.”
