I purchase this in an effort to downsize my pedalboard which contained an old BD-2 for light to medium grit and an Angry Charlie V1 for a harder rocking sound. Not only did I succeed at this but I discovered so many new sounds using the parallel mode as well as feeding the Charlie into the Driver (previously I had used the Driver into the Charlie). I don't think I have ever been so pleased with a purchase. I'm a blues/rock player whose sound spans from almost clean '60s style blues (three Kings, BB, Albert, Freddie) to '80s Metal. So I can't really say how it dos for something like djent but I would whole-heartedly recommend it for anyone playing anything from jazz and clean country through hard rock, even venturing into thrash metal territory.
