Hey guys, I bought a new Schecter c-7 blackjack ATX recently and i am loving the shit out of it. its awesome!
i am looking for some good death metal, deathcore and djent bands which play 7 string stuff which is fun to play and listen to.
i know Whitechapel is 7 string deathcore, periphery for djent etc.
i am looking mainly for death metal bands like Decapitated and stuff which play 7 strings.

All Shall Perish play 7 strings ? Since when ?

Suggest some good songs to learn please. I have learned Icarus Lives and the first 2 riffs from Zyglrox

just learn songs from bands that play in B standard (or anything lower) on a 6 string. that'll make your search a bit easier.

essentially that is what i am looking for. but most bands which play lower than B standard use 7's. so its the same thing.

I know it's not deathmetal, but some of the best 7 string metal you'll here is from Nevermore's Jeff Loomis. All of the band's albums have fantastic guitar work, especially the last 2, as does Jeff's solo album.
#18
Unearth, Thy Art Is Murder, Dream Theatre (even though theyre not death metal)
Most of the other main ones have been named, although there are plenty of local bands up and coming using 7 strings.

meshuggah uses 8-stringers. unearth has some great 7-string thrash material.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.
