Feb 23 Word of the Day
The process of searching a building for an empty bathroom. A successful bowl search typically relieves the frustration of uncomftorably defecating around others, although in less frequent cases the desire to urinate alone is a factor. Bowl searching can be done anywhere although it is most prevelant on college campuses.
"In college I did a lot of bowl searching."

"Sam went to the bathroom like 20 minutes ago. Jeez, what's taking so long?"

"He's probably bowl searching."

Djent is used to describe a certain kind of guitar tone characterized by medium-high gain, a quick-release noise gate to emphasize staccato playing, a cut of most bass below 200Hz for a tight low end, a slight boost around 800hz for clarity, and a noticeable boost around 1.6Khz to emphasize pick attack. When a two-octave power chord is palm-muted with this tone, a "djent" sound is created rather than the typical chunkier sound.

Djent also refers to repeated staccato playing of the lowest-pitch string on a detuned 6 string or 7 string guitar with a powerful attack such that the string goes very slightly sharp upon the pick's release from the string. Lower-gauge strings are used to facilitate this.

Djent tone is many times created using a Line 6 amp modeling product such as the Pod series or the Axe-Fx. When possible, an amp model such as the Big Bottom or Modern High Gain on these devices is used in conjunction with a modeled Tube Screamer in front. Engl and Mesa amplifiers are typically used when tube amplification is preferred.

Djent is widely acknowledged to have come first from Meshuggah, but Misha 'Bulb' Mansoor has arguably popularized the sound. Djent's typical uses give rise to a "genre" of djent that is characterized by hi-fi compressed production, polyrhythmic/staccato distorted riffs and ambient clean passages which make liberal use of 9 and other "jazzy" chords. Electronica influences such as glitchy percussion and synthesizers are also incorporated.

Guitar noise onomatopoetia.
The sound you get when you palm mute with razor tight, high gain tone.


Not to be mixed up with the ordinary "chugga-chugga" or "dun! dun-dun!".

Hitting the low string on a 6-7 or even an 8 string guitar, but then palm muting the string straight after it has been hit. Tunings used with 'djents' are usually Drop C# right down to low F's.

Artists such as Meshuggah, Periphery, Textures, Xerath and Midnight Realm use Djents in their music.

Simply put, Djent is a (kind of) genre of metal with repeated use of the lowest available open string, often staccato and fast. Djent breakdowns are also usually quite intricate. Stereotypically, djent will have the perfect Axe FX settings and heavily down tuned 9-string guitars. For origin info, look at thall.
