Also known as Christian Black Metal or White Metal, this genre is basically black metal stylistically and sonically but with artists that promote Christianity and Christian themes in their lyrics and imagery. Notable bands include Horde, Antestor, Admonish and Crimson Moonlight.
This name for modern, ultra-heavy modern progressive metal, is an onomatopoeia for the high gain, muted guitar sound employed by many of the bands. Meshuggah lead guitarist Fredrik Thordendal is credited for naming it and creating it with his percussive, crunchy guitar style. Other important bands include Periphery and Animals as Leaders.
