A Distant Calm

A Distant Calm is a nifty djent band that manages to carve out their own niche in a crowded scene. While clearly their music is very influenced by the likes of Periphery they have their own special hardcore side that allows them to stand out. Their riffs are powerful and feature all of the djenty magic that really helped to make bands like Born of Osiris so huge. I think that the hardcore growling style adds a lot of flavor, meanwhile the clean vocals are normally something I might criticize. Yet in a djent context they work perfectly well. Also, their execution is absolutely spot on so I can't really complain. I will wrap up by simply saying this, with a tight package of high powered riffs and ballistic vocals this band will not disappoint. Go check them out!
