Bands that use 7 strings or B tuning

I used the search button and found a thread that was kind of about drop tuning in general, but I want to narrow that down to 7-strings, B-standard, or drop A tuning, because I just got a seven string. It doesn't have to be metalcore or hardcore, I just thought this'd be a good place for this thread, seeing as how it's my favorite genre and somewhat most likely to use these tunings. Well, other than metal, but then I wouldn't get any hardcore, so, you know...

I already know Unearth use seven strings and Amon Amarth and Slipknot ( ) use B, so it's not necessary to mention those.

All Shall Perish use 7 strings

drop A? Nile of course

lots of bands use drop B, but that would require tuning your guitar up...

I'm pretty sure the first two Acacia Strain albums were in drop A or something along those lines. Now they play in like drop G#.

The new Necrophagist will have 7 strings. It isn't out yet, though.

Machine Head are in Drop-B.
Morbid Angel use 7-strings.
Has anyone noticed that most of these bands have nothing to do with Hardcore?

Looking at the comprehensive list.... when did Slayer use 7 strings, and why aren't Deftones on that list?

Slayer used a 7-string on God hates us all. It was the only time Kerry used a Floyd, because Kahler hadn't made a 7-string trem at that time.
