Best Metal Guitarists

The Contenders: Page 13

241 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)

242 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.

243 Paul Quinn

Just listen to saxon, thils guy can play guitar for fun and in my opinion is one of the best out there,
Up the saxon's

244 Eric Hoffman

Best fastest lead guitarist ever

245 Brian Warner (Marilyn Manson)
246 Wes Borland Wes Borland Wesley Louden "Wes" Borland is an American rock musician and artist. He is best known as the current guitarist and backing vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit and as the lead vocalist of the industrial rock band Black Light Burns.

A great guitarist who deserved to be in a better band.

247 William Green

One of the worst diveboming teachers ever but amazing at every thing else

248 Val Allen Wood

He's the guitarist for Theocracy, who I can honestly say, are one of the best Power Metal bands out there right now, but no one knows who they are because they're a Christian band, so most metal fans won't listen to them, and they're Power Metal, so most Christians won't listen to them. But this guy can play.

249 Jeordie White
250 Rick Derringer
251 Bill Kelliher Bill Kelliher Bill Kelliher is a musician from Atlanta, Georgia, best known as rhythm guitarist of heavy metal band Mastodon.
252 Angel Vivaldi

Relatively unknown, but listen to his Universal Language EP., that's good.

253 Krys Escobar
254 Jouni Hynynen

I think he should be #1 on the list. Just listen to his solos for example the one that's in the ending of the song "Tuonelan koivut". Just breathtaking.

255 Ben Moody Ben Moody Benjamin Robert "Ben" Moody is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actor.
256 Chris Holmes

No guitarist is more metal than Chris Holmes of WASP.

It's about damn time I found Chris Holmes on this list. I have been looking for him everywhere on here! But of course, this list goes by popularity, not skill, influence, or talent. He is my heavy metal hero and deserves a hell of a lot more credit than he gets. He can play the most incredible guitar solos and he writes some of the most iconic metal guitar riffs of all time. Just listen to the songs "Sleeping (in the fire)" "L.O.V.E. Machine" "Mean Man" or "Forever Free" by W.A.S.P. Truly a classic metal guitarist and very underrated. Long live the Blonde Bomber, the Mean Man, the Manimal, Chris Holmes!

257 Fred Gorhau

Outstanding mixture of melodic rock and interesting lead guitar!
