I have just got my ibanez set up for drop d and I was looking for some metal to play with it. I've been learning some lamb of god and older trivium, anything else you guys recommend?
Something technical with alternate picking would be good.

1st guy: Since when do killswitch play in dropped D ?

2nd guy: Just got my fr set to dropped D, or if 'why' I like the sound, and I'll use it for my bands new material

3rd guy: I did search and all people said were lamb of god and the ascendancy album which I already knew about.

Is all annihilator in drop d or just that song ?

The point was that they could play songs by darkest hour and killswitch in that tuning. Obviously the songs would be a step higher, but it can be played nonetheless. If you wanna play it how it actually is then just tune down.

RATM doesnt have that many songs in Drop D iirc.
