Yes, when I first heard them and saw how heavy they were, I thought they de-tuned. Was surprised when I found out that almost all their songs are stanndard.

Wow... Opeth use standard? I'm really surprised.

Immortal used standard E tuning up until Sons of Northern Darkness, I believe. Standard tuning, like most BM bands. Einherjer also use standard.

I think standard is best for good old fashioned thrash, power, and heavy metal. King Diamond use standard, right? Manowar still write some songs in standard, but a lot of the recent stuff is in D or Eb

Seen 1 or 2 Zyklon tabs in E standard. Whether they're correct or not remains to be seen but they sound right enough.
You could technicaly count bands using 7 strings tuned BEADGBE (or AEAD...) as using standard tuning.

I think alot of new bands don't use standard tuning because they can't write a heavy sounding song in E. I personally like E tuning because when played right it sounds razor sharp.

I can only think of Megadeth. Maybe Lamb of God can be an exception but they're in Drop-D.
