Ah yes. I heard some good things about the new Marillion release.
Actually, I LOVED "Marbles", liked probably two or three songs of "Somewhere Else", really liked the first disc of "Happiness Is The Road" and "Sounds That Can't Be Made" didn't do that much for me (didn't listen to it that much either to be honest).
The new one should be more like "Marbles", or so they say.

I'd like to try Kansas and also Operation Mindcrime.

Rather listen to - and get - the two latest Queensrÿche albums: Queensrÿche (2013), and Condition Hüman (2015). They're super!!! - have really refreshed the Q-sound *horns*

I haven't heard much of Geoff Tate's ex-Q stuff, but it doesn't rate that well :-\

O:M I & II (with GT) are of course fabulous too.

I have all the Q studio albums 8)

To me Queensrÿche ended the day GT left the band.
Haven't heard Operation:Mindcrime (the new band of Geoff Tate) but I doubt I ever will.
Have quite some issues with the man's ego. What he did prior his leaving and after that, wasn't really nice to say the least.
The fact that both teams, Geoff and his ex-band mates from, to me, the real Queensrÿche, released an album as such and that Geoff deliberately called his Queensrÿche album Frequency Unknown, with a fist on the cover that had the letter F and U (we all know what that means) on two rings with the bands icon in between, is a low point to any standards.

I have heard bits and pieces with the new line-up of the 'real' Queensrÿche but the new singer don't convince me yet.

I am a big Tate fan - what he did with the original Q - so I was also sceptical towards a Q without Tate, but when I read the enthusiastic reviews of their self-titled album (from 2013), I decided to give it a try, and WOW, was I caried away. Condition Hüman (2015) was just as WOW *horns*

I read the reviews of Tate's albums - FU under the Q moniker, and the two O:T albums - and they were not enthusiastic, and I had listened a few times to Tate's earlier album Geoff Tate (2002), which had not impressed me, so I decided to let this matter rest; I have enough music that excites me.

Mad, give the self-titled album and CH some runs. You'll see that the many fans who extol the new Q are right 8)

Funny, that nowadays people consider Meshuggah as Djent, while I always thought that it was Math-metal.

"Djent" obviously derives from Meshuggah. From Wikipedia:


Djent /ˈdʒɛnt/ is a style of heavy metal music that was developed as a spinoff of traditional progressive metal. The word "djent" is an onomatopoeia for the distinctive high-gain, distorted, palm-muted, low-pitch guitar sound most notably employed by bands like Meshuggah and SikTh. Typically, the word is used to refer to music that makes use of this sound, to the sound itself, or to the scene that revolves around it.


Development

Fredrik Thordendal, guitarist of Swedish band Meshuggah, is considered the originator of the djent technique, although Tomas Haake stated in an interview in Loudwire "Fact or Fiction" that they did not "coin" the term "djent", however, the scene itself developed from an online community of bedroom musicians, including Misha Mansoor, whose success with Periphery brought djent "from the virtual world into the real one." Other important pre-djent era bands in the development of the style are SikTh, Mnemic, Animals as Leaders, TesseracT, and Textures.

The scene has grown rapidly, and members of the original online community, including the bands Chimp Spanner, Gizmachi, and Monuments, have gone on to tour and release albums commercially. Other bands that are often considered djent include A Life Once Lost, Veil of Maya, Vildhjarta, and Xerath. Born of Osiris have also been described as being inspired by the djent movement. Furthermore, Hacktivist and DVSR are djent bands that use rapping as primary vocal style.

Misha Mansoor from Periphery uses many guitar effects to influence the music, such as creating a lot of high gain by using an overdrive pedal. "To get a djent tone on any guitar, you have to buy a compressor, overdrive or Tube Screamer, distortion, and shimmer reverb pedals to allow you to get a djenty tone depending on your amp and guitar in general."


Characteristics

Djent as a style is characterized by progressive, rhythmic, and technical complexity. It typically features heavily distorted, palm-muted guitar chords, syncopated riffs, and polyrhythms alongside virtuoso soloing. Another common feature is the use of extended range seven, eight, nine, and ten-string guitars.


- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Djent


But yes, mathcore also applies to Meshuggah, as well as hard-edged metal - just like several labels - neoprog, symphonic hard rock, epic rock - apply to Arena ;)

And again: Periphery should not be missed - they are right upfront at the cutting edge!

The Danish group Mnemic too - a nice confluence of FF and Periphery, with Mnemic's own special sound - they have quickly become pantheon with me.


And I think that Bupie can join us in celebrating la belle :-*

It's rather odd for me to see those Swedish names and words with the vocals without mutations (like umlaut), i.a. å as a, ä as a, and ö as o; it's like writing: Hoppu Naw Your!  ;D
