    Asphyx Guitar Tuning?

    I was wondering if anyone knew what tuning Asphyx uses. From what I can tell it sounds like it's at least down to B on 'Deathhammer' and 'Death the Brutal Way' but I've seen people tab them out to D standard. I'm not sure what they were using around 'Last One on Earth' but I think it might be B again or at least C# or D which was more common for Death Metal bands around that time.

    Funny you mention Asphyx, I was just listening to them. Like you said, all of the tabs I've seen have been in D-standard, couldn't find anything but this from Eric Daniels:
    Eric explains the musical direction of GRAND SUPREME BLOOD COURT as follows: "GRAND SUPREME BLOOD COURT is a five-piece band, with two guitar players, in order to give more heaviness and possibilities to the songs. That differs from ASPHYX, as well as the fact that we down-tuned to B and the challenge between heaviness and brutality. The structure of the songs is more basic. Riffs will tell the story...
