Best Metal Guitarists
The Contenders: Page 13
Alternative metal's great Jim Martin made Faith No More, not Mike Patton.
A very underrated guitarist. I'm actually a little surprised he wasn't on this list since his solo in Evil Never Dies was beyond phenomenal. He also plays well in Elimination, Shred, and End of the Line.
This is the incredible Coroner guitarist. Obviously very underrated because I added him at #266 after tons of wannabes and people who aren't even metal guitarists. This is sad but I'm not surprised because I have seen this many times before. - Metal_Treasure
What is happening to the metal fan following these days? Mark's riffs are completely different than every guitarist on this planet. Not even different they are kick-ass. He nails every note with such a perfection that even the people who are not fond of metal like it. His solos are a masterpiece. He deserves to be in the top 10 at least.
The man is a complete legend.
Starting to sound like a groove metal poll? Mark Morton has never wrote a riff that wasn't heavy, every song stays brutal. As far as rythems I say lamb of god can create more ass kicking mayhem than pantera. Even. Not the memorable soloist petrucci or dimebag are. But still an extremely underrated soloist. Plus he has a sweet beard
This guy is very underratedV 8 Comments
mick's shredding skills, guitar design, and sheer amazing riffs should put him as number one
He's simply outstanding and is one of my favorite guitarists. He should be rated in the top ten list
Just listen to before I forget. Better than any modern guitarists, although dave mustaine is just the master of the guitar
Listen to all hope is gone, welcome, and nomadic and you will know why I voted for MickV 13 Comments
I've been to 3 AC/DC concerts. In every one I don't remember Angus taking a break. He was out there playing his soul out the whole time. There is no one that can compare. It's true that his stuff isn't overly complicated, but that doesn't make a good Guitarist, Showmanship Is a large part of the entertainment value. Isn't that why we go to concerts in the first place?
Of course he's a god, because he's Australian (the best country on Earth by the way), and there is simply no-one like him. A best guitarist list doesn't have to be about technicality, but charisma, originality, and downright great memorable riffs. He's better than Malmsteen so far as all that goes.
not really metal but very underrated, also one of the best showmen ever - DeathToMayo
Great Guitarist but he's not Metal - christangrantV 7 Comments
Two albums, EPIC! He produced the entire album himself. The drum tracks the guitars, the bass, this guy is THE modern GERMAN legend. People just have to listen to his classically influenced technical Compositions in death metal and understand the reason behind me writing a short story about his EPICNESS!
Just listen to mutilate the stillborn, only ash remains, intestinal incubation, or symbiotic in theory and tell me that's not awesome
The best guitarists, voted in the Underground Metal society. Just because you people do not listen to Metal, go pick up 'Necrophagist' songs. It's a band
I think he's underrated. He should be easily top 10.V 6 Comments
Well, he's not mainstream, but that doesn't mean he's not good. Best and most underrated guitarist. Haven't you seen him at The Poet an The Pendulum? Maybe at Last Ride of the Day? At Master Passion Greed? At any of his songs at all?
when he plays he don't hit the strings, he dances with em!
One of the most underrated guitar players ever exist. He plays metal riffs in the most interesting, evocative and yet melodic way.
Emppu... He's so tiny and cute, but when he start playing he just blow your mind! - CenturyChildV 3 Comments
Great guitarist. Just nails every note perfectly and clearly. Solos are so memorable and with great taste. He's not the most technical guitarist, but is very creative with his leads and riffs. Dude is nasty!
The best one ever my band's lead guitarist is greatly inspired by this young man. I future him and bullet for my valentine will be the best they are improving rapidly and are coming up really great I wish he was there in the top 20s. Anyway he will soon make his way
HIS SOLOS ARE just awesome...
HE SHOULD BE AT TOP 10..man...
Very underrated, and Metallica is my favorite band, yet that doesn't mean Kirk is the best guitarist, he is a little overrated in my opinion... - doodad
Puts so much passion into every note, such an amazing player, should be a lot higher on the list
Underrated is his nickname, I guess. I found this guitar legend, and I can say, he plays amazing. I'm a huge Metallica fan and I have listened thousands of bands but buckethead is very different. Everyone should listen and give him a chance. Nobody can say "buckethead sucks". He is great on his job.
Incredibly talented guitarist who puts loads of emotion into his many songsV 10 Comments
