Best Metal Guitarists

The Contenders: Page 11

201 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

202 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!

203 Neil Zaza
204 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.
205 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!

206 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.

207 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?

208 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.

209 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!

210 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.

211 Aaron Lewis Aaron Lewis Aaron Lewis is an American musician, who is the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and founding member of the rock group Staind, with whom he has released seven studio albums.

I wish more people understand how well Aaron Lewis handles rhythm guitar. He plays beautiful when he is in his solo acoustic shows.

212 Archie J. Muise Jr.

Please! If you listen to Korn guitarist Head's solo album Save me from myself, Muise does great rhythm work that goes with Head 's style of metal guitar playing. Muise is so underrated that he needs to be recognized for his work with Brian "Head" Welch.

213 Bryan 'Monte' Money

To hell with you guys just listen to THIS WORLD IS OURS..!
Best solo and vocals goddamit..!

214 Troy Van Leeuwen

Please! This man played like a alternative metal guitar boss in A Perfect Circle 's debut album. Give credit to the man who played rhythm guitar in one of the best alternative metal bands around. Also check him out in Lullabys to Paralyze by Queens of the Stone Age and some of his work with Orgy.

215 David Valdes

Amazing skills, melodies.. All that needs to be to get on the list. Go and listen paradise lost in youtube!

216 Lincoln
217 Commodore Redrum

Fast that's all there is to him and a good dose of technique

218 Jimi Bell
219 Jake Pitts Jake Pitts Jacob Mark "Jake" Pitts is an American musician and record producer best known as the lead guitarist of the rock band Black Veil Brides.
220 Tim Skold
