Best Metal Guitarists
The Contenders: Page 8
listen to that crazy solo in i wanna rock
He's only been in the band for 7 years but he can do the solos better
than anyone! he plays very accurately and can do just about any song
KISS throws at him great guitar player!
For fun on top 20...! He is one of the greatest metalcore guitarists thumbs up if you hear AS I LAY DYING
Uli is truly amazing: wrote, produced, orchestrated and he is very innovative; invented the sky guitar. His lyrics are deep, interesting and positive, his sound phenomenal. From the early 70s to 2013, still progressing and making good music!
Uli Jon Roth, one of the founders of neo-classical, a player with amazing technical skills. A shame he's not higher up on the list. A bad song-writer and an even worse singer, yes, but his guitar mastery is paralleled by very few.
You hear people say that Sabbath (and maybe Priest) had a monopoly on "heavy" in the 70s, and that Van Halen and Yngwie invented neoclassical shredding. Yet, Uli was writing songs of a dark, heavy beauty in the 70s with the Scorpions (check out "Sails of Charon" or "Dark Lady") that sounded like no-one else, and infusing classical and Eastern sounds into metal in its early days. His later orchestral crossover work (e.G. "Under a Dark Sky") show him to be still a great player and songwriter.
Lead Axeman of Death Rattle. Up and coming band out of New England. Just played Mayhem Fest in MA and CT. Dimebag Darrell is his hero. Check him out Death Rattle-Domination (Pantera Cover) live at Mayhem Fest, on youtube.
Lead guitarist for Death Rattle an as of yet unsigned Metal band. They just played Mayhem Fest in Mansfield MA and in Hartford CT. Search youtube and see for yourself!
He was the guitarist in the first ever death metal band Possessed, so that alone makes him worthy. You're right, I love Primus, but yet they suck.
Talented guitarist with great energy about him. His stuff I dig and it fits me. Remember, PRIMUS SUCKS!
In my opinion he is better than kai hansen by a big mile.
One of the best powermetal guitarist in the world a lot better than kai and sasha put together
He's literally making Swiss watches, is great mates with Mustaine, was excellent in early Anthrax, and doesn't care about metal or fame. Interesting individual, full stop. He should start growing pumpkins with Jim Martin too.
Deserves a lot more credit and popularity than he gets, especially being the only lead guitarist for Anthrax all these years. His solos are awesome.
Better than all should be number one
Extremely talented guitarist that can shred like no other. Also a great blue player. Has got one of the warmest tones ever. Just check out his playing on songs like Holy War by Thin Lizzy or Crying in the Rain by Whitesnake. If you really want to hear an insane solo, check out Love Potion no.9 by Tygers of Pan Tang. - TheStargazer
Disturbed, anyone? Incredible guitar solos. So technical. So crisp. Dan uses his extensive 1980s hair metal skills to form a new sound. He sounds nearly as good live as recorded. That says a lot to me.V 1 Comment
