    :noplease::lol: woops, oh yeah forgot it was flat.

    EDIT: I don't know if it's 'Ab standard' though, more like drop Ab.

    Wasn't Korn's first and second album drop A? I believe the first Berzerker album also was in drop A

    I thought all of Korn's albums were in A standard.

    Well actually neither of us were right. It's Ab, Ab (next octave), Db, Gb, Bb, Eb

    I definutely back the Nile suggestion. Learn Lashed To The Slave Stick.
    All Shall Perish - Prisoner of War (sick, sick track)
    Cerphalic Carnage - Scientific Remote Viewing (not sure about the other songs)
    Apart from those the only other Drop A bands I can think of off the top of my head are deathcore. I mean they are pretty sick bands but lack a certain amount of musical depth, (shriek, growl, chug, breakdown, tremelo pick, breakdown, shriek, end).
    Carnifex
    Suicide Silence
    Whitechapel
    Aside from those many bands in standard A are easily playable in drop if that doesn't bother you.
    Fear Factory - Digimortal and Obsolete albums are awesome.
    Arch Enemy have a few tracks here n there - Instinct, Dehumanisation
    Roadrunner United - Dino's contributions
    Divine Heresy
    Asesino

    Their songs are in drop C, but he was just saying that they sound good in drop A. That's up to debate, but they're not in drop A in case that was what you were wondering.

    All of Korn's albums are in 1 step down (A standard), not drop A.

    omentremor - Anything Dino's done is A standard dude, not drop A.

    EDIT: ignore that, just read what you said properly lol

    I remember seeing Dino in a video teaching Failed Creation and it was in drop A, different from his stuff in FF which was standard A.

    Besides being in standard A, most Korn songs can be easily played in Drop-A. It´s harder to play the ones that use the low D more often, but Blind, for example, is totally suitable for drop-A with some adaptations.

    i think we should move on from obsessing over korn, considering how simple it is it doesnt matter either way. (it is in A standard though).

    No one´s obssessing over Korn.

    It´s just that "A" tuning screams Korn, anyway. We were just trying to help...

    Anyway, I don´t know a lot of technical bands playing in A these days. Most of them tune to B or even lower than A...
