Matthew Kiichi Heafy is a legend of the modern metalcore/thrash/heavy metal scene. He handles some of the most intricate guitar work of any "rhythm guitarist" all whilst managing lead vocals simultaneously. Trivium is phenomenal with their unbelievable guitar synchronization. The only justification that could explain his low ranking on this list, is that he may be considered a lead guitarist as he often takes on epic solos. Watch him play. He's brilliant.
Zoltan is amazing I mean look at the whole way of the fist album and all of the other ffdp albums, he is by far the bestV2 Comments
Can play old Rhythms he didn't make and has made new ones.
Cannibal corpse lead guitarist, even Jeff Loomis has praised him to be the best guitarist to play with him in Nevermore, one seriously technical and talented guitarist.
Extremely tight, fast and technical rhythm style. Perfect hand synchronization. He composes fantastic riffs, and possibly the most influential black metal guitarist ever.
This list should be renamed "The rhythm guitarists that are in the most famous mainstream bands"
