Can someone tell me some good bands that play in standart E in guitar?

i want metal bands, some badass riffs like Slipknot or something but in E Standart

I know Metallica and Megadeth do stuff in E standard, but that might be a bit cliché now.

EDIT: It's standarD, by the way, not standart.

If you're not really bad at typos.

Unfortunately a lot of Dream Theater is with a seven string.

Pretty much all metal from the 80's is in E, sans Slayer and the beginnings of melodic death metal. Uhh, if you want stuff like Slipknot.... I dunno. Not a lot of nu metal bands play in E.

Anthrax's stuff is in E Standard. Their old stuff was pretty good. I'm also pretty sure that Testament is in E Standard, and they have some badass riffs.

Opeth FTW! Maybe some Dillinger Escape Plan too, if you're in a chaotic mood (they play in E, right?)

A common misconception

Only a few songs is played on a 7. three of them are from Awake, one from Sfam, Acos, one from Six degrees (Is Blind Faith played on a 7? in that case two), one from ToT and two from Systematic chaos. May have missed some.

that's like...9. Mr Petrucci do tune down a lot though, so even though most songs are played on sixes, they may not be in E. that's exactly the case on ToT, where no songs are played in E-standard.
