Most metalcore bands play in Drop-C
All That Remains play in D standard
Very few modern metal bands play in E standard, I can't think of any off the top of my head

Yeah most Metalcore bands play between Drop C and Drop D.

Dunno, some acoustic interludes may have been played in Standard?

In terms of just straight ahead metal, there's loads of that. Iron Maiden, Pantera, Metallica...nearly all the classic metal bands worked (mostly) in E Standard.

Are you just interested or are you actually just wanting for something to play? Cause it isn't really that difficult to tune to Drop D, and then you can play everything from screamo/metal to (some) metalcore.

well lamb of god plays some songs in D.

*edit* DROP D

I think the closest you're gonna get to E standard in modern metal is E flat. Iced Earth and Nevermore are mostly E flat. D standard is another popular one. Demons & Wizards play there a lot; so does, i believe, Ensiferum. Metalcore is just about exclusively in drop C.

Most of the Ember to inforno album was in standard

Early Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and other Thrash bands,

I also think that Shadows Fall have some songs in stanadard

I think they mainly worked in Drop D, except from some of the stuff of The Crusade which was mainly on standard 7 strings (I think, I'm not a huge fan).

Besides they weren't THAT metalcore to begin with and The Crusade was much more "normal" metal.

Just thinking though, did Atreyu work in standard for any of their new album? Cause it was a bit less chuggy than before. Then again you can argue that they've also "done a Trivium" and stopped being metalcore.

Sorry 'bout the double post.

Drop D is also OK. I'm asking since I just got a Ibanez S470 (and I love it). Even if it is a little pain I think I can set it to Drop D.

Å

and to awnser Heaven or Hell: yeah I want to play the songs. just can't think of any good band in E Standard/Drop D.

Unless you're playing to a backing track, anything in D, or even C, standard can be played in E standard.

D standard --> E standard = easily recognisable.
