Is it just me, or is almost all metal downtuned to something. Drop C, Drop D, D standard, can someone write metal in standard tuning these days?

Don't they play in Eb these days?
And yeah, Cynic. A lot of tech bands are in standard I think, excluding techdeath.

Metallica and priest and iron maiden.

1 of the things that define modern metal is drop tunings.

No. AFAIK most "true" metal bands don't use drop tunings.

i mean I use D Standard... it's pretty metal...

then again I sometimes opt for standard, or Drop C if i'm feeling frisky, but about 95% of the time tis D Standard

Id say the best metal bands play in standard :O

Even though Rage Against the machine is a mixed genre band, they definantly have a very hard sound, and generally use standard tuning. I dont care for really any metal from the past 15 years or so, a few exceptions. Pantera is probably my favourite metal band

boo! (at your lies)

Most bands I listen to use standard. Except for The Sword with their damn inconsistent tunings like C F A# D# G C and C G C F A D.

Metallica, Maiden, Dream Theater, Dragonforce, Trivium...
All examples of bands that fit in the category of metal (and imo metalcore is a style of METAL) that commonly use standard.

Somehow all bands I like. Wonder why that is.

Add megadeth, priest, saxon, pantera (mostly), opeth (?), king crimson and mercyful fate. Yep thats all my favourite metal bands.
He said most. There's exceptions to everything, not need to be dickish.
z4 and 20tigers were just trolling about something similar in the thread. Not our fault if we come of dickish when talking about metal for the next couple of hours.
