"Non-Djent" 8 string bands

I'm picking up an 8 string soon, and was wondering if there are any good metal bands that use 8 string guitars, that don't fall under the djent/groove metal umbrella. I'm looking for straight up metal stuff(no instrumental/prog bands;AAL,Scale the Summit, ect...)

sorry if this is the wrong forum(I figured this MIGHT fall under the ERG section)

Pretty sure Beyond Creation use 8's. Death metal stuff.

Ihsahn uses an 8 on After.

Deftones' Diamond Eyes has 8s on it.

The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza use 8s on Danza III.

Well, this isn't djent, but it isn't any other sort of metal either.



These guys use eights, but they're more rock than metal.

every song on wormwood by the acacia strain uses 8s

+1 for Ihsahn, he uses a custom 8 string Ibanez for the rhythm parts throughout "After".

Some later GWAR songs make use of an 8 string





EDIT: Check out some Divine Heresy songs. Its a combination of 7 and 8 string guitars, I believe.

Dean doesn't use the eight string at all iirc. He does on some of the newer stuff that they haven't recorded yet though

He also used it for the whole of "Frozen Lakes on Mars"

Why has Meshuggah not been mentioned yet?

Other bands and albums who use 8's tune into the 8 string range:
Mnemic - Sons of the System - Downtuned 7's
Divine Heresy - Bringer of Plagues
Fear Factory - Mechanised
After the Burial
Scar Symmetry - Some of their stuff off "Dark Matter Dimensions" and "The Unseen Empire" was recorded with 8's IIRC.

Plenty more out there. Also, most of these guys use either F or F# standard, so that does make life a bit more interesting. If you want to get a bit silly, try using an alternative tuning (an open one for example) Definately makes you think differently about composition.

Pretty sure Haken use 8-strings.

They're a really awesome prog-metal band in the general vein of Dream Theater etc. Check 'em out.



I'm talking particularly about the heavy bit from 5:00 on.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't have a 7-string any more and I like fat necks and single-coils, come at me.

Metal Webb nailed it with Meshuaggah.
