Can someone recommend me some good metal/nu-metal/hardcore and metalcore bands that use Drop C tuning?

I'm pretty sure SOAD, Atreyu and KsE use them but I'm trying to learn new songs in this tuning.

Drop C is down one whole step on strings high E-A, except the low E string, which is dropped down two whole steps. D Standard is all strings down one whole step.

if u start at drop D , and go down 1 semi tone u will go to dop C# and that is SOAD's main tuning that and drop C which is another smi tone down. another semi tone will be drop B then drop A# and drop A.... i play mostly metal and my guitar is allways tuned to eigther C or drop A# i play kill switch in drop A# and i actually prefer the heavyer sound....

drop d - lamb of god
drop c# - soad
drop c - Mudvayne (for a couple of there albums) Killswitch,
drop b - Mudvayne (LD50) Slipknot (Iowa)
drop A# - In Flames, behemoth

now since tuning from drop to a standard tuning is fairly quick and easy ill list a couple bands that play in the "standard tunings"

standard e - Ensiferum, wintersun, slayer
(1 semitone) d#tuning-
(1 fulltone) d tuning - children of bodom, sepultura, behemoth
(3 semitones) c# tuning -
(2 fulltones) c tuning -In Flames

try out lots of tunings find one that you like... like i said i play everythnig in a lower tuning and its killer
Breakin shit since 87

Not technically metal by UG's Metal Forum standards.

Some of Symphony X's, Necrophagist's, Gojira's, COB's and all of Death's stuff is in D.

I'd prefer to be the only guitarist in a band. I love rhythm and I like leads, why not do both? Plus I want all of the attention because I am a huge faggot.
