25Hizaki & Teru (Versailles - Philharmonic Quintet)

The Sync of these pair is unbelivable, amazing! Check for Silent Knight, this song shows the true accuracy in a LIVE concert, someday this band will conquest the world, now listen the song of the new album Holy Grail called Faith and Decision.

One of the most amazing duo I ever seen, beautiful solos as hell! talented, wonderful synchronization. Album after album they improve their skills and makes your heart feel with their music.

The most talented, natural I have ever come across and hell do they have beautiful solo's. Soon I hope to see them in the biggest stadiums where they deserve to be.

Most talented and they create make the best melodic solos. Versailles are a new band and as everyone says - "they will be the next biggest symphonic metal band. " Trust me. - Taloper

Just listen to Speed Metal Symphony and it will make my point clear!

28Danny Kirwan & Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac)

Two blues masters playing with a legendary rock band. Songs like "Albatross", "Oh Well" and of course "Black Magic Woman"!

29Rudolf Schenker & Mathias Jabs (Scorpions)
30Jay Jay French & Eddie Ojeda (Twisted Sister)
31Hyde & Ken Kitamura (L'Arc~en~Ciel)
32Nick Valensi & Albert Hammond, Jr. (The Strokes)

At their best, these guys pack a great one-two punch of ridiculously fast rhythm guitar (Albert) and smooth, catchy solos (Nick), although they occasionally switch it up, and have Albert deliver dizzying solos on songs like "Last Nite", "Vision of Division", and "One Way Trigger".

33Herman Li & Sam Totman (DragonForce)

I think that they are at least in the top 5...
For me it is:
1. Metallica
2. Megadeth
3. Iron Maiden
4. DragonForce
5. X Japan
It's my personal opinion

why are all those overrated jokers above them?
