it's very possible. you can use a baritone and/or a 7 or 8 string and/or specially made thickass strings. i have a baritone 8 string with a .90 gauge string for the f# and it works fine: hell, i can get it to E without too much difficulty

Just the other day I was talkin bout how bad bands seem to put out new albums too fast while good bands spend more time making and releasing new albums. And i was saying how it should be the other way around so that these Shitty bands could actually spend more time making an album so that maybe they could create something half decent. And I mentioned emmure specifically and here they are again. Right back at it. How ironic.

I think The Acacia Strain were in Drop F# on Wormwood from what I can recall. Anything below Drop B starts to lose the sharpness in the tone I think, but sometimes it's acceptable for bands to go balls to the wall br00tal for a song with Drop G.
