    I'm looking for some death metal bands (any subgenre, but tech and 90s style are preferred) that play on 7-strings, and not simply 6s tuned down to B Standard, although feel free to share for anybody interested. Please, no 'core' of any kind, only real metal. :lol:

    Spawn of Possession immediately come to mind. :hbang:

    First of all: MORBID ANGEL. Any album after Blessed are the sick. Gateways is the one with the most 7string songs, but all albums got atleast 50% 7string material. Behemoth - Zos Kia Cultus and Demigod is also definatly whorth checking out.

    Demonicon, if you can find any of their stuff. Not sure about their current lineup, but both guitarists were playing sevens as of a couple years ago. Nailed Shut is a mix of B-tuned six and seven.

    My band play sevens - same setup as Spawn of possession - one six string esp and one 7 string Ibanez. Tuning is C-standard thou - The C note just seems more in your face than B

    Obscura have a couple of songs played on 7 strings as I recall, if you consider Whitechapel/Suicide Silence death metal (I don't, but hey...) they play in drop A on 7s.

    Also, do you care about bands like Cryptopsy or At the Gates that play in B standard on 6 strings?

    Hour of Penance are also well worth checking out. The guitarist was using a pretty slick natural burst Ltd SC-607 last time I saw them live:

    I agree.

    The band in my signature named Benighted Iris plays some kind of modern death mixed with djent vibes.
    We play 7s in Dropped A and use an 8string on 1 song.

    Coincidence, a buddy was showing me Hour of Penance earlier tonight. These two bands are incredibly heavy, especially Diamanthian.
