A) I'm pretty sure there's been several threads about this

B) Shouldn't this go in general music discussion?

C) +1 to AAL and Deftones' latest album. Steve Carpenter is the reason I constantly GAS for another 8-string

Ask enough questions, and you can answer anything.

Except Tesseract use 7s, still. And I'm pretty sure that Entrosolet use 7s, as well.

Meshuggah.

...and I'm gonna mention Mnemic here. Granted, they tune down to F# on sevens, they're one of the few bands that use low tunings in anger, crafting whole songs around the low string... as opposed to a sprinkling here & there, or "It's time to drop to the low string for the breakdown".

I'm also going to mention a 7-string band that plays with a very low tuning...it basically sounds like they're rocking 8-stringers:
