Best Metal Guitarists
The Contenders: Page 9
A big fan of Kreator, a big fan of Mille Petrozza, and as a rhythm guitarist and vocalist he is great. But the big improvement came with the classically trained lead guitarist on Hordes of Chaos and Phantom Antichrist.V 1 Comment
Agreed. A bit too reliant on palm-muting - and if you love his output then Divine Heresy are just as good as Fear Factory.
Fear Factory's guitarist. Just listen at "Replica".
Or every other fear factory's song with him...
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
Highly creative and a technical wizard. His ear for melodies and ability to turn them into mind-numbingly amazing music should place him very high on this list.
I am suprised that he wasnt on the list
His solos are so tough to play. Even you could play those, it won't be like his. Don't what about him. Is his fingers that are thinner than average guitarist? Or something else? His licks are very fast. This guy enjoys doing battle with other. Its his speed that makes him greater. His guitar solos remind me of Yngwie Malmsteen's style. - zxmV 1 Comment
Just listen to the song Gorgoroth and you'll understand why he should be in the top 15 - SirSkeletorThe3rd
