    Listened to Operation: Mindcrime on the plane back from Tel Aviv yesterday. Struck me that, like the Handmaid's Tale, there are probably a number of people who would think that was written in response to current events if they heard it for the first time with lines about 1% and "eradicate the fascists".

    Spreading the Disease is, hands-down, my favorite Queensryche song.

    I kinda hate to say it, but I think I've been listening to "Djent" lately a bit. I got started when someone mentioned Tosin Abasi, a guitar player who specializes in 8-string, and plays in a band called Animals as Leaders. From there I started listening to some Periphery, watched a bunch of videos with Misha Mansoor, and Mark Holcomb, and then started listening to a Periphery based Pandora channel. Gojira kinda fits into that category.

    Problem is, this type of music typically is paired with stupid screaming/growling vocals, which I can't fucking stand. Luckily there are some instrumental bands in this area (such as Animals as Leaders and Polyphia). It's really hard to find this kinda of metal with 'normal' vocalists.

    Back to Abasi, if you watch some of his solo/demo stuff, it could totally be classified as "Djazz". And he dresses like he's got a guest part in Family Matters, so that's cool....

    I feel like my tastes are regressing.

    I've also been listening to some Mastodon lately, and am a huge Brent Hinds fan these days.

    FaF, you might also enjoy:

    - Intervals (some vocals, some instrumental)
    - Pomegranate Tiger
    - Tesseract
    - David Maxim Micic
    - Earthside
    - Chon
    - Plini
    - Anup Sastry
    - Skyharbor

    I discovered djent on some random YouTube adventure years ago with Misha Mansoor's Bulb demos. I'm not normally one for cookie monster vocals but Spencer Sotelo (Periphery's vocalist) does some good work and fits the band well. Their strongest works IMO are Periphery II and Juggernaut.

    I have no shame in listening to this stuff. I dig it.
