Do you think Djent is an actual genre?

Many people think that Djent is not a genre as such, but just a way a song can sound like, so a song can only sound "djenty", not be Djent.

Do you agree? Why? If you do, what do you think bands like Meshuggah or Wide Eyes are?

Before this whole "djent" malarkey arose, Meshuggah was a technical groove metal band. Every other "djent" band I've heard has little to do with that sound, and seems more like a dubstep group with guitars.

i think it was like a type of guitar "sound" and now its just developed into a genre, meshuggah were doing that guitar sound, but they are not what people call "a djent band"

problem with bands you associate with "djent" periphery, monuments etc, all sound to similar i think
