Anyone can share some Black Metal bands who play 7 strings? Would be cool
Start with Emperor ;-)
Carach Angren is using sevens.
Agrona, black metal band from south wales. they use only 7 string guitars.
I know dudeman mentioned Prometheus, but the first couple Ihsahn albums are just as black metal as that imo, and they're also on 7s aren't they?
There's another band that's black metal that uses 7s and it's like all the riffs are tapping but I'm blanking on who it is.
Cant believe no one mentioned Behemoth yet
Not exactly black metal. They do have some influences though. (5:05)
They also use 8 strings.
Darklord ? By the way, probably the most technically gifted guitarplayer in BM (not that this is the No. 1 requirement to be a great BM player. Vindsval from Blut Aus Nord for example is great without any shredding at all).
Arcturus tune to B on 6 string and 7 strings. Dimmu Borgir have used baritones in B or A before. I can't remember what Silonez said.
Arcturus wasn't on sevens when they were playing black metal. They didn't start 7 strings until The Sham Mirrors. I guess it does have one track that's black metal, called Radical Cut.
Behemoth didn't start seven strings until they stopped being black metal and moved into their death metal thing. I believe it's not until The Apostasy.
Deafheaven? Or are they on sixes.
^they're on sixes that I don't even think are detuned lol
Deafheaven is 6 strings tuned to E standard and Drop D.
Nightbringer - Naas plays a 7 tuned to B. The other guy uses a 6 and I'm yet to work out whether its tuned to E or B.
As a result Akhlys and Bestia Arcana also use 7s as he is in or is all of those bands
Also Aosoth - tuned to A I think
Think Demigod was the first with 7s, I'm sure Slaves Shall Serve was done with 7s.
yeah Dimmu used 7s from Deathcult onwards, Silenoz was suing a 7 string viper.
Borknagar used 7s on the aslt album, eve though called Borknagar BM is a stretch
further to my post:
Aosoth also use 6s but tuned to A (was sure it was 7s)
(how do you embed videos here now!?)
Marduk in some songs of Nightwing and Grande Danse Macabre.
