Djent

The word djent is used to describe the guitar tone made when a two-octave power chord is palm-muted. Bulb (a.k.a. Misha Mansoor) says it best: " the onomatopoeia of a heavily palm muted distorted guitar chord which is usually played as but not limited to a 4 string double octave powerchord, and as a result sounds much more metallic and sonically present than a 'chug' 'chugga' or 'djun' per se, and which is basically how Periphery would describe its palm muted guitar sound.
