Metal Songs in Standard Tuning

So, I have been playing a lot of Metallica and Iron Maiden lately, but I was wondering what other standard tuning metal bands there were other than the following:
Megadeth
Judas Priest
Opeth
Metallica
Iron maiden
Black Sabbath
Ozzy Osbourne
Pantera
Anthrax

may i ask why it has to be standard tuning? you can play anything no matter what tuning you are (within exception ofcourse) i have a standard tuned guitar and i play loads of stuff thats in d and c, its just it sounds crappy when you play along to the cd thats all.

Didn't they on Show no Mercy?

Oh, and Hammersmashedface: Marduk has ALWAYS played in E, with the exception of maybe 3 songs on a 7-string.
