Best Metal Guitar Duos

MetalFoREVer1228

The Top Ten

1 Synyster Gates & Zacky Vengeance (Avenged Sevenfold)

They are the best guitar duo there is.

There will never be a better duo ever!

2 James Hetfield & Kirk Hammett (Metallica) James 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.
3 Matt Heafy & Corey Beaulieu (Trivium)
4 Adrian 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

5 Glen Tipton & K.K. Downing (Judas Priest)
6 Mick Thomson & Jim Root (Slipknot)

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

7 Jeff Hanneman & Kerry King (Slayer)
8 Michael Amott & Christopher Amott (Arch Enemy) Michael 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.

Hear their guitar riff and unbeatable guitar skills in Rise Of The Tyrant album... :)
They're unbeatable duo guitar players to me...
