Hey guys,

Had an idea while learning some Misery Signals. Anyone else reckon a hardcore forum tunings thread might work? The Metal forum has one (that I'm supposed to be looking after haha) and it's helped a fair bit. My only real concern is whether it will work here. Such an abundance of Drop _ (insert letter) bands... Might not have much variety?
Either way, I think it would help and am consulting the hardcore forum before I waste any time on it.

y/n?

Even if it's useless, it will be interesting. Go for it.

E Standard
Trivium
Unearth(7 string)
Trivium were only E standard on their first album. Then they went to drop D, then third album was half standard, half 7-string, and now I believe they just use 7-strings. I think 7-strings should either fall under B standard or just 7-string standard B.
Drop D
Avenged Sevenfold
New album is half a step down from that, I believe.
Drop C
As I Lay Dying
Drop D on the newest album.
C Standard
The Black Dahlia Murder(was Deathcore)
Drop C on Unhallowed, and they were never deathcore.
Drop B
All Shall Perish
ASP actually use a really weird drop tuning for 7-strings that requires tuning the B string up. I've seen Chris Storey talk about it in several interviews.

Drop A
The Acacia Strain
Pretty sure they use G#, but I don't know about their whole discography. Pretty sure the other two use 7-strings tuned to drop A, which again may need its own category.

Not correcting you to be anal about it, just trying to contribute. I'll probably throw in some more in the actual thread.

Acacia Strain uses drop A. And I was listing tunings for a discography just to get things started.

Correction you were right Acacia Strain uses Drop A, A# and drop G

This seems like a good idea. What tuning do Ceremony, Modern Life is War, and Verse play in?

edit: oh wait, you made another thread for it, sorry about that. Go ahead and delete this.

I've got a few bands you can add to a list:

D Standard:
The Red Chord

C# Standard:
Architects. Sometimes tune the low C# to G#

Drop C:
Trap Them
Backstabbers Inc.
Black Breath (pretty sure, may be C Standard though)
The Carrier
Cursed
Counterparts

Drop B:
Animosity
Journal
A Textbook Tragedy

Drop G#:
The Contortionist

Dangers play in E standard on everything except for Messy, Isn't it?, where they play in D standard, minus I'll Clap When I'm Impressed, which is in Drop C.
Structures play in Drop A# on 7 strings, with the 7th string tuned to G.
