Best Metal Guitarists

The Contenders: Page 14

261 ICS Vortex
262 Kim Thayil

He brought it Black Sabbath-style, and wrote some of the infectious riffs in his prime. Jesus Christ Pose and Room A Thousand Years Wide and countless others were classics.

263 John Norum
264 Jim Martin

Alternative metal's great Jim Martin made Faith No More, not Mike Patton.

265 Glenn Ljungström
266 Aaron Gregory
267 Matias Kupiainen
268 Per Nilsson
269 Bobby Gustafson

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.

270 Tommy Baron Tommy Baron

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
