ive been messing around with my previously downtuned (C Standard, Drop B) riffs, in standard and Drop D. Im still trying to decide whether i like it. So if you know of any deathcore, deathmetal, or heavier metalcore bands that use it list em here. And please dont list bands like Lamb of God.

underoath isn't "deathcore", or "death metal", or even "metalcore"
they're screamo.

behemoth uses a 7 string. Knights of the abyss arent drop d.

10-16-2007, 06:42 PM
Amon Amarth does most their stuff in B afaik...
At least my seven string agrees with me on that one ;)

joelfaessler
10-16-2007, 06:45 PM
Behemoth does not use 7 strings. I've been 2 feet from Nergal playing at 3 differant shows. Definately 6 strings.

nayleD1337
10-16-2007, 06:53 PM
Maybe for the paticular song, but most of the songs are 7 string.

So far none of the bands posted are played in any of the requested tunings.

Underoath tunes in Drop D from The Changing of Times on.

The Dilligner Escape Plan plays in E standard.

Most Hardcore bands play in standard.

Other than that you'll probably be out of luck.

whoever said bodom is in drop C is partially right

I think their newest is drop C and before that it is D standard or E standard.

Like he said earlier, looks like you need to downtune if you want to play death metal type stuff

nayleD1337
10-16-2007, 07:42 PM
i said that. yeah they play in drop C and D standard.

Orchid's heavy as f*ck, and I'm pretty sure they're in standard. They're not death- anything though.

Orchid isn't "heavy".

STABxYOU
10-17-2007, 07:45 PM
They don't sound like metal at all, but they're still 'heavy'.

Paris_In_Flames
10-17-2007, 07:47 PM
I wouldn't call them heavy, I'd say they're "intense", but whatever, its not important.

Nu-metal garbage that people pass off as real metal since the first couple of albums were groove metal.

The two greatest bands ever to grace D standard tuning: Death and All That Remains.

Obviously an opinion statement.

To correct an earlier statement, Himsa play in drop C. At least on Courting Tragedy and Disaster, I don't know about their new album.

i think most hardcore bands play in drop d.

Actually, most Hardcore is in standard or half step down. There are a decent amount of drop D bands, but there are more in standard.

And by this, I mean actual hardcore.

Opeth. Durr. They play in standard or drop D on every song except for a couple on Ghost Reveries that are in open d minor.

EDIT:
And Behemoth uses 6 and 7 strings. I was 3 feet from Nergal for an hour and a half last night. It was about half and half.

My bad. I'm not sure you'll be able to find ANY deathcore bands that don't downtune, but Protest the Hero and The Fall of Troy both have songs in either standard or drop D.
