    I recently fitted some Horizon Devices 11-74 strings on my 7, and I'm looking for tunes to bang out. I love Northlane, so I've already got Citizen, from Glass Cloud there is most of their debut album (which is technically on an 8, but you can play it on a 7), anything else anyone can think of? Off the top of my head there is also some of Northlane's Alien, but I don't have a whammy pedal.

    Drop F# and G# standard iirc. The Silent Life is Drop F# I know that.

    Drop F is a fun tuning but Northlane is one of the big ones you already have covered.

    Everything put out by Reflections before their latest album is Drop F or C standard.

    I *believe* that most everything put out by Dealer is Drop F, at the very least Grotesque is.

    Most/all stuff from Varials is Drop F.

    Fairly certain DVSR is Drop F though they may be Drop F# and I'm just remembering incorrectly. Same for Carnifex and Acacia Strain as I'm just blanking on whether they're Drop F or Drop F#.

    Obviously gotta mention Vildhjarta and earlier Humanity's Last Breath, though there's a slight change somewhere in the high strings with Vildhjarta. Think it's the 2nd or 3rd string tuned up a half step.

    Fit For A King has a decent number of songs in Drop F (especially on Deathgrip) but you'll have to take the low C down to A# ala Northlane.

    ERRA and Invent Animate have a few songs in Drop F but they're weird variations on the tuning last I remember.

    Drop F# opens up a few more doors. Volumes, Thornhill, Spiritbox, newer Veil of Maya (drop the C# down to B), etc...

    Ah yes, Acacia Strain is F on an 8. I was in F# but I tuned down to F just to be spicy.
