i would say if u want heavy fast playing do a tuning not as low but to standard. For example Into Eternity uses C standard and is ****ing heavy as hell. between the buried and me even uses C# standard and is ****ing heavy and not even as low. beyond that, lamb of god only does drop d. low isnt the only determining factor of heavy. thats my best suggestion

Either Drop C or C Standard for me. My guitar hasn't been tuned above that since I got it acually.

experiment with a bunch of them. use what feels good man.
My Gear:
Epiphone Classic Les Paul
Ibanez JS1000 w/ Seymour Duncan Jazz and Pearly Gates
Alverez Acoustic
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
Boss GT-8

Yeah, i think this has been covered, but how low you tune doesn't necessarily affect how heavy your stuff is. I think once you go below drop C, your stuff just sounds ridiculous.

C Standard (2 step down) for me
