This is talent, bass like thunder, solos like lightening, plays drums like a demon. Top 10 in this universe. Real metal god.

190 Steve Asheim

You need a drummer list. Start steve in #1. This cat hits 40 licks per second. Yeah, I am deicides #1 fan. Long live death.

191 Commodore Redrum

Just hear this guy going wild on his guitar, sure it may not have a lot of emotion but the sheer speed and technique more than make up for that. Just listen to it came from the deep or rounds of rum and you'll get what I mean

192 Monte Money

He's got style, can perform live, and shreds his ax like a boss.
He may not be "The king of guitar" but at least he shows his pride and dedication when he plays!

193 Neil Zaza
194 Mårten Hagström Mårten Hagström Mårten Hagström, (born 27 April 1971) is the rhythm guitarist for the Swedish experimental metal band Meshuggah. Hagström, along with his bandmate Fredrik Thordendal, was rated #35 by Guitar World as the top 100 greatest heavy metal guitarist of all-time.
195 Alberto Pimentel

He is the greatest thrash metal guitarist of Mexico ever! He has some very awesome riffs and solos in both of his bands. Check them out in YouTube!

He is the greatest thrash metal guitarist from Mexico! He has some very great songs like Mexico bárbaro, and la mañana siempre viene gris. Check them out in YouTube!

196 James Iha

A lot of people may recognize him from The Smashing Pumpkins, But when he plays in A Perfect Circle, he really shows that he could be a great alternative metal guitarist. He brings very melodic metal rhythms to the band.

197 Christian Olde Wolbers

They got Wolbers to replace Dino Cazares for a reason. Wolbers doesn't have that "machine gun" style of guitar picking, but has that nice and heavy way of playing guitar. I enjoyed songs that feature Wolbers playing guitar like Archetype and Bite The Hand That Bleeds You. These are the reasons why Wolbers guitar playing should be recognized.

Do you understood that the worsts fear factory's albums are with Olde Wolbers at the guitar?

198 Tim Lambesis

Yes, he is a talent. And now he's got a lot of time to get even better.

Tim Lambesis is a great metal rhythm guitar player! He plays like a badass with Emil Werstler in Austrian Death Machine! Very great picking he gives in Austrian Death Machine.

199 Shagrath

I heard of his guitar playing in early Dimmu Borgir albums but I wish too hear him play with Galder and Silenoz. That would be badass!

200 Chris Traynor

Have you heard his solos in the Helmet albums he played in. I mean Page Hamilton really knew that Chris Traynor was the right choice for Helmet because Traynor lead guitar skills fit Helmet and also the band he is most recognized for, Bush.
