    Nevermore uses 7 stringed guitars. Behemoth uses them on a few songs. They are nice, i have one. the 7 strings have more range than a 6 string guitar

    The clear answer is Zero Hour. Listen to that shiz. :kickass:

    The 7th string is a low B, essentially adding a high bass guitar string to an electric guitar. It allows for interesting tunings and more bass-heavy tone.

    John Petrucci plays 7-string. It goes well with a 5+ string bass, allowing heavy riffs on the low B. Joe Satriani plays the 7 occasionally as well... he has a song called "7 String".

    No Meshuggah has and most likely still uses 7 string guitars to create their incredibly dull music.

    They used to use 7 strings, now they use 8 strings. And I love their music.

    Here is a pic.
