    Caligula's Horse, not sure if everything is drop A but a decent ammount is, it seems. Also Jinjer.

    Check this out. Not sure how accurate the whole list is. Some entries are specific and some are vague.

    The only time I think Dino used drop-anything was a couple of b-sides from a re-release of Obsolete.

    But yeah I was thinking of suggesting the same. I love jamming some FF but drop A on my 7 is a lot more versatile than A or B standard, and I can still manage a good bit of their material.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Dino used mostly if not always standard tunings but I have no problem playing his stuff in drop tuning.

    Thanks for all the replies, everyone ! Scar Symmetry being in drop A is what interests me the most. I'll eventually look into a bunch of the stuff that you suggested.

    Slipknot uses Drop A on some material
    Coal Chamber uses Drop A on some material
    YOB
    Pallbearer
    Crowbar uses Drop A on some material
    Chimaira used Drop A on all of Pass out of Existance and on a few songs for Crown of Phantoms

    Those are the ones that come to mind for me that aren't Deathcore.

    A lot of Our Last Night's originals and covers are in that tuning and they're a poppy post-hardcore band.

    In the prog-sphere:

    Jakub Zytecki's first solo Album (Barre one song where he tunes ONLY the low string to Ab, keeping E Standard on the top 6 strings), and I believe both his band's (Disperse) albums are in Drop A. Stephen Taranto's album has 3 songs in Drop A (One in BDADGBE, another in ADADGBE).

    Times of Grace and The Faceless also have a few Drop A songs in the more metal side of the spectrum.

    Unlikely that it’s quite what you’re after, but Sunn O))) are in AEADF#B if I’m not mistaken.
