    Little tybee is incredible sounding. What a refreshing band. Thank you for sharing that with me. You hooked me with the 8 string. But kept me with beautiful imagination.

    I use one in Shroud of Bereavement, but I haven't recorded anything with it yet. I'm playing a 7 in this video, but it should give you a feel for what we sound like and how non-djent we are :lol:

    haha I never actually did buy an 8 string

    Decided to go with a normal 7, wish I had gone with an 8 though.

    Rusty Cooley when back in Outworld played a 8-string with high A as well as a 7-string. Prelude to Madness is one of the tracks he used his 8-string for and I believe he also uses it on The Never.

    Charlie in Haken incorporates 8-string guitar however Richard uses a 7-string and does some keyboard sections (along with their keyboardist).
    Tom MacLean, guitarist for To-Mera and bassist for Haken is actually borrowing Charlie's 8-string to do the rhythms for To-Mera's upcoming album this year. So yeah, To-Mera is gonna be using 8-string soon, but they've always used 7-string before that.

    Beyond Creation's vocalist uses an 8, while their other guitarist uses a 7.

    I know this is an old thread, but the new Deadlock is awesome in my opinion.

    Some Leprous songs (last 2 albums) have 8 string material on them, very awesome avant-garde/prog!

    my band, when i finish this ep that i'm working on. just good old blackened melodic death metal in F and Bb. i can absolutely guarantee that i will never under any circumstances djent, and have come to accept that i'll never be able to be all too techy.

    Removing this before another lovely person neg reps me for a post that was not meant to insult in the first place. I was being completely honest to the OP, your insecurity about my personal experiences is not welcome in any way.

    Really wish I could find out who it is though, I have a few things to say.

    Really bad quality video, which is a shame, because it's a cool video and an awesome song.

    Six Days Of Silence - YouTube

    Not sure if he's using an 8 in this song, or maybe not even the album it's from, but by their second album, Antigravity, he certainly is using an 8.

    This is Cripple Mr. Onion, a New Zealand band. They're awesome, and don't really seem to be up to much these days.

    EDIT: God damnit, I thought embedding would actually put the video in my post. Oh well.
