    The Acacia Strain's new album is done all with an 8 string, not a very flashy album but fucking heavy

    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

    Meshuggah. :cool:

    ...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". :yesway:
