Progressive metal has evolved rapidly over the last 20 years. Born from a combination of classic rock, jazz/fusion, and countless metal genres, this style of music comes at you with full force. With countless projects being born across the globe, this sub-genre has exploded recently and is here to stay. The rumor is that the genre's name originated from the sound of the muted, distorted guitar strums "djent . . . djent djent . . . . djent djent . . . djent!"
