Metal bands using b tuning?

Hi!

I am trying to make up a list of B tuned players (to look up their tabs afterwards on guitar pro's msb).

Here's what I got, so far:

Novembre
Steve Vai
Emperor
Soilwork
Arcturus
sun caged
at the gates
edge of sanity
fear factory
carcass
arch enemy

Anyone willing to add some to the list?

Soilwork actually uses C. Drop-D down one whole step is the current popular "metal tuning".

You know, for those losers who aren't cool enough to play sevens.

thank you.... lol, no, but seriously.... this is the tuning all the kids use that go "chugga chugga *dissonant high notes*" and repeat. you'd be suprised at how many 'guitar players' i know that don't know what a standard tuning is.

and not all of vais songs are in B either just FYI, he changes tuning more than i change my underwear

oh unearth, and slipknot (they use drop b, and sometimes drop A)

Soilwork uses b tuning, at least until figure number five. I am aware some of the bands use other tunings on different albums/songs..

Type O Negative use B standard for everything. Linear Sphere and Biomechanical use sevens. Jed Simon in Strapping Young Lad tunes to B, although Devin tunes to an open C chord.
Tom Kopyto uses either B or Drop A on the seven, and D on the six, as do Adagio (sans the drop A. Inner Road is D standard on a six string).
Kings X use BF#DGBE occsionally, although I can't name any songs in that tuning off the top of my head.
Incidentally, I always thought Carcass tuned to C...

Define 'well-adjusted'...

Not so....both use CGCGCG tuning for SYL. Check out their "Ask The Band" section of the SYL forum.

Nope.....everything is in B. This is the bancd that got me interested in B tunings in the earlier 90s.

All of "Please Come Home Mr. Bulbous" is in AEADF#B, played on a Yamaha Ty Tabor Drop6 (26.25" scale). Ty told me he used a standard ten gauge set.

Basically all of King's X's stuff is Drop D, down various amounts - from D to A

Fredrik of Meshuggah tunes down half a step and uses .009-.052.

Mnemic uses B standard. And if you want a shred rhythm-challenge, try The Berzerker's "Forever". (B standard there too.)

Yeah, but with the Ty reference, he's talking about a 10-46 set on a 6-string, tuned down to A

I'm pretty sure that berzerker are in A standard, at least that's what Luke mentions on the DVD.

The new Soilwork record is tuned to B, I tried some songs and they fit on my seven string guitar. Unless they are using C live they are still tuning to B on their record.

Sepultura tunes to Bb on some songs but they also tune to D standard and Drop-C on some of them.

All the Bezerker stuff is A standard. Check the DVD and the site, it has all the tracks from the 1st album tabbed.

As for bands...

Fear Factory were B standard until Obsolete
Slipknot used Drop B for all but 1 track of their self-titled album, and then the following albums were usually either Drop B or Drop A.
Bolt Thrower

I skimmed over the thread but several of the bands like Morbid Angel, Nevermore and Cannibal Corpse use Bb not B.

I R LEFTY!

Nevermores 7 string stuff is in b flat, dead heart to godless. Im sure it was so they could still play the older e flat 6 string songs.

Hypocrisy - Virus is in Bb (7's)
Scar Symmetry - Symmetric in Design also in Bb (7's)
However there new Pitch Black Progress is in B, with dropped A on atleast one song
