Best Metal Guitar Duos

The Top TenXW

1Synyster Gates & Zacky Vengeance (Avenged Sevenfold)

They are the best guitar duo there is.

There will never be a better duo ever!

2James Hetfield & Kirk Hammett (Metallica)James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.
3Matt Heafy & Corey Beaulieu (Trivium)
4Glen Tipton & K.K. Downing (Judas Priest)
5Mick Thomson & Jim Root (Slipknot)

Yes! I love Slipknot solos especially Duality and Pulse of the Maggots - Danielsun182

6Jeff Hanneman & Kerry King (Slayer)
7Adrian Smith & Dave Murray - Iron Maiden

Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge a7x fan but...? Smith and Murray are by far the greatest guitar duo ever.

I don't know why I didn't include these guys in the first place. They're the ones who started the whole "dual guitar" thing used in Metalcore and melodeath and any other genre and/or artist that utilizes the technique - MetalFoREVer1228

No doubt the best duo in metal, add Janick Gers and it is the best trifecta in metal

8Michael Amott & Christopher Amott (Arch Enemy)Michael Amott is a British-born Swedish guitarist, songwriter, founding member of the bands Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars, and Carnage, as well as a former member of the grindcore band Carcass.

They're unbeatable duo guitar players to me...
