Djent & Rap Metal Collide In Hacktivist’s “Unlike Us” Music Video

Djent/rap metal pioneers Hacktivist have debuted their music video for their song “Unlike Us” online below:


  • Tom


  • verse.chorus.breakdown

    Fukn sic!

    Reminds me a little of that song Two Sides by Clawfinger.

  • Njustice4all

    I’ll be damned, this is awesome. Gotta love some good ol fashion creativity.


    It was cool until the white guy stepped in. There isn’t anything cool about a white dude trying to rap. Other than that, I’d jam this.

    • goop

      Never thought I’d be giving you a thumbs up, but you hit the nail on the head this time. Not just the rapping, but totally ripping off the hand gestures, posturing, articulation, etc always makes me think “too bad, yet another band that could not land a decent vocalist”.

    • adamonfire

      Why so many thumbs down? This band would be approximately 2.7x better if it was exclusively the black guy on vocals, his flow destroys the other guy.

  • coolguy2424

    Watch out Meshuggah, you are on notice.

  • SiX50SiD

    Here we go……throw in a little The Browning on back-track keys…and poof! winner-winner chicken dinner

  • pathos

    this might actually catch on… i can’t wait for the onslaught of bands that sound the exact same

    • WURST

      I dont see how Rap/Rock or Rap/Metal will ever be “cool” again. We went through it once and, in hindsight, we all see how much it sucked.

  • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

    Like Randy Blythe would say “IT’S ALL FUCKING METAL THIS DJENT BULLCRAP ISN’T ORIGINAL” It’s just the fusion of a sub genre of metal and rap, not to mention nobody knows who they are yet, I’ll pass.

    • adamonfire

      No, Randy Blythe would say “Help! I’m stuck in jail in the Czech Republic!”

      • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

        sorry would’ve my bad.

  • wtf

    why wasnt this titled rap/crap or rap metal? Djent isnt a genre…its a made up word from a band. So any band that palm mutes is djent? Come on wook…get it together baby. It’s all in the hipsss!

  • Obi-Juan Valdez

    Djenter’s Delight by Meshuggah Hill Gang

    • They Ate Their Macaroons in Silence

      Fuckin’ nice (:

    • WURST


  • They Ate Their Macaroons in Silence

    Diddy’s contacting his attourneys for the “Bad boys lyricist..” rhyme.
    Stale lyrics, but less than songs regurgitating foreign cars, $, and herpes sluts that I’ve heard.
    Candiria dood.

  • monkeywithagun

    Reminds me of older Ces Cru with metal music. It’s a alright song, kind of get repetitive though.

  • jakeunknown

    this sound has about a year before its almost tolerable, and two years before its totally unbearable.

  • emvath

    Really? You guys all like this huh? I guess I’ll give it another chance but I didn’t think the vocals mixed well at all.

    • logos

      the thing is that djent really hasn’t mixed well with any vocal style, sans a certain Jens Kidman. I actually thought it mixed better than most vocal styles used in djent, making up for the fact the djent and rap sides of this crossover aren’t too good by themselves.

      disclaimer: I don’t recognize djent as a genre.

  • LunyAlex

    I admit I came here expecting to smile at how pathetic it would be and get out swiftly.

    Nope. This is good shit.

  • joetones

    Yeah…I’ll take the instrumental album if they have one. Speaking of…what happened to Periphery releasing an instrumental this time around? Shit slams. I’m just too particular with vocals. It’s essentially another instrument, and if it doesn’t mix, it fucks everything up for me.

    Excellent music otherwise.

    • They Ate Their Macaroons in Silence

      Periphery vox make my balls shrivel up, too dude.

      • Surly

        I don’t mind them actually. His hyperactive-ness is catchy. II is a cool album instrumentally. So layered and textured.

  • spicyulcr

    Almost as good as Design the Skyline. Ahem, Design the Eyeliner**

  • Dax

    I know I’m supposed to laugh at this… but this song slams.
