I just got a new 7-String and so far the only bands I listen to that use them are Trivium, Unearth, Whitechapel, and Suicide Silence... recommendations for any other bands that count anything like these or just metal bands in general that use 7-strings?

Off the top of my head right now there is

Beneath The Massacre
Morbid Angel
Pig Destroyer
Spawn Of Possession

The list would be about 10 times as long if you were looking for bands who tuned a 6 string down to B or below!

Amon Amarth... They use a normal 6 string guitar detuned to B, but I think it's easier with your guitar already having that string. Anyway, what guitar is it???

There's

NEVER

yeah, but they play in drop B, which for them is raising all the strings but the low B up a whole step, which could damage my guitar.

new xiphonobox metal custom made by Muhammed Suckmeoff
looks sick man

I've noticed with the exception of a very few bands,most good metal bands just tune down with a six string.Mortician tune to a low f on a six string,its a good time.

Goddamn that was great!

I'd like to see Nolly try and tackle Jarzombek's solo in Synaptic Plasticity, though, that would be incredible...


From what I know about Nolly and having just checked the solo... I'm pretty certain he'd be capable of it with relative ease, it doesn't sound too hard compared to some of the stuff I know he can do but I doubt he'll be doing many covers for the forseeable future, Red Seas Fire are busy working on their release.
