You guys haven't probably listened to Kerry king play. He deserves to be in the top ten.
I feel like Kerry King gets overlooked a bit. He has a lot of really good solos and leads, especially on the South of Heaven album and Seasons in the Abyss album.
A very good guitarist that definitely deserves to have a higher ranking on this list because compare the "persecution mania"solo to Metallica's "hit the lights" solo and you'll more than likely see a drastic difference.
Why is there Frank Black from the Pixies on the pic?
Brilliant guitar ideas realized in their songs
One of the very best, period. So underrated!
A true legend! Destruction rules!
This guy deserves to be in the top ten. Listen to his albums with Suicidal (like "How Will I Laugh Tomorrow" or "Lights...Camera...Revolution! ") and you'll see why he deserves to be in the top ten.
How the hell is Rocky so low on this list? His solos are amazing! He should at least be in the top 5. - memo273
Come on we forgot the guy who played on peace sells? One of the most essential and influential thrash albums of all time? No? Anyone?
What! Chris Poland is criminally underrated man.Why he's so low in the list
Only 40 and kicks everyone on this list's assV 1 Comment
He's relatively new in the game of thrash however he is dominating the new era with his brother
He is called the wildchild for a reason. Thrash metal has been redefined by him.V 1 Comment
He is a very good guitarist. And yes he can play thrash lead guitar. and he has also played some. but he didn't focus on thrash metal. instead he focused more on heavy metal. and even if he played thrash metal, then he is better at rhythm guitar than lead guitar (for thrash metal) - zxm
Again, he was a hard rock guitarist (both lead and rhythm guitarist). when Komol joined the band, basically he had to pick rhythm guitar. and he is mostly a hard rock guitarist. he played some metal songs. but most of them are heavy metal, not thrash metal. - zxm
