Well each of us were influenced by different people. But as a band, generally Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Killswitch Engage, Submersed... Those are a few. Mainly BB. Before I started this band, I hadn't listened to them much. Then our lead singer got me into them pretty big. I was always a standard tuning, Red Hot Chili Peppers kinda guy... Then, I got in this band and started messing around with Drop C tuning. I love it though. Its fun.
