I'll vote for him for his frenetic Bay Area thrash rifforama on Vio-Lence albums only.

210 Leda Ex-Deluhi

213 Adam Dutkiewicz Adam Dutkiewicz Adam Jonathan Dutkiewicz is an American musician, recording engineer, songwriter, and music producer, best known as the lead guitarist and backup vocalist from Massachusetts metalcore bands Killswitch Engage, Aftershock, and Times of Grace.

Great rhythm guitarist, great composer, great producer, and is subtle in his beliefs, but brutal and textured in its delivery.

214 Mads Eriksen

The only Norwegian ever being on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine. Extraordinary skills so listen to his records and you are sold. he also has a blues album together with Hungry John that is seriously good. Today works together with former Manfred Mann singer but still makes his solo albums Go Mads Go.

215 Chris Poland

Lol, nobody recognizes the best player of all time, Peace sells but whos buying, is easily one of the best albums of all time and its practically a solo album of his, and what other really good album did megadeth release? Rust in Peace, Marty gets all the credit for it but a lot of that albums solos were written by Poland and then tinkered with by Marty... Also Dave the number 1 guitarist on this list admits that Poland could play circles around him, guy saying he isn't beter then Hammett or Mustaine is high as a kite

No, he's not better than Hammett or Mustaine. He was in their best line-up, wrote excellent solos, but there's more to being a great guitarist than just being a great guitarist.

What the hell?! Chris is way better than hammet and mustaine. He deserves at least synyster gates' place!

Lol this list is a joke. Chris Poland at #256? COME ON!

This girl plays lead in the band "Kittie". I have seen the band twice in concert and she does some serious metal riffing.

217 Mark Reale

R.I.P... Just the best! Listen some true power metal (riot) and you are gonna see that this guy was and still the best!

218 Kurdt Vanderhoof

Yes. Metal Church's first two albums were so fantastic because of Vanderhoof. But I couldn't get past David Wayne leaving. If they stuck together, Metal Church would have been giants.

Great guitarist from Metal Church!

219 Frank Blackfire

He Plays Guitar in Sodom and Kreator. He Plays very fast and brutal and he was guitarist on the Album Agent Orange. (best Album)

220 Luc Lemey

He was one of the pioneers for technical death metal, his riffs are fantastic weather it's his clean intros our pounding distortions, his skill is far beyond many modern and so called "talented" guitarists. If you haven't listened to gorguts you're missing out on the best of a genre.
