The Contortionist Megathread

Anyone else heard of them? My friend showed them about 2 months ago. Their singer is really good and has a lot of range. Check them out

I really dig them. I came across them about a year or two ago when I searched myspace for bands called The Contortionist because I wanted to use the name for the band I was with at the time. So it turned out there was already a relatively well-known band using the name

The Yellow Sign is also another sick band. I'm pumped to see people talking about both of these bands on here though!

I've actually just started using that tuning. I like the low end of A/Ab and have been tuning to that on my 7 for a while but i like the feel of 6's more :/

well if it works for you... i just think thats way too many high end notes lost there tuning down so far, and i bought mt first ever 6 string a few weeks ago to actually tune somewhat normally, and i cant deal with it. form now on its 7's for what ever tuning, even in E standard, ill just throw a high A on there
