My band does drop B, it's a pain, thank god I only have to worry about 4 strings (bass.)

But a other bands...I think Anal Cunt play in drop A, and as for drop B, go for Pig destroyer, Amon Amarth, and At the gates.

Pig Destroyer and Agoraphobic Nosebleed use drop A.

Amon Amarth probably use a straight tuning either C or C# im guessing.
At The Gates - Straight B maybe higher on the first album.
In Flames used to use Straight C, I think some one mentioned Drop D on STYE.

JFAC use drop C on doom but now play all songs in Drop A.
Bleeding Through use drop B, as do Throwdown, Maroon, Heaven Shall Burn(I think) & Eighteen Visions. Probably Bury Your Dead too.

heh, static-x.

just kidding.

as previously mentioned, ion dissonance tunes down extremely low. i know a fair amount of bands in baritone tuning (equivalent to standard B) but none that drop it that i can currently think of.

Wow, thanks for all the suggestions dudes.
I've heard of most of the bands you've listed but never listened to them to much.
I gave all the ones listed a listen and I like:
-Bury Your Dead
-Bleeding Through
-Isis
-Amon Amarth
-In Flames
-Nile
-Pelican
-Ion Dissonance

Special thanks to the guy who pointed out Isis, I had never heard them before but I am amazed. Verryy good.
Also, thanks a bunch to whoever suggested Nile, I like them a lot as well.

Hatebreed uses C and only C. As for drop B parkway drive, carpathian, new I killed the prom queen, new bleeding through, the agony scene, some through the eyes of the dead, very new terror eg. hell to pay, and that's about it for me unfortunatley.

Iunno about Mastodon, but Meshuggah uses 7 strings on their earlier albums (Bb Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb), and 8 string guitars on the later albums (F Bb Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb, i think).

Not too sure.

You're a funny guy, Slipknot uses drop B and drop A.

But they are not, I repeat, NOT, hardcore, nor will they ever be anything close to hardcore.

This is true

I think Through the Eyes of the Dead uses seven strings too (but not really hardcore).

They're not talking about hardcore punk, they're talking about "hardcore." It has little in common with its roots in the '80s.
