His Dark and Extreme and Fast guitar Playing defined the Death Metal guitars, later in the the Death album "Human", he played extremely Technical/Progressive, he's guitar playing style is influential to many Extreme metal bands. - GREYBOYY
One of the reasons why I play guitar.His solos blew me away when I first heard them,even the riffs are great.It's special that a death metal guitarist can make very melodic riffs and solos.
This guy defined the way of Black Metal guitar playing to many bands, he should be #1. - GREYBOYY
Tony Iommi's guitar style greatly influenced and defines doom metal. - GREYBOYY
He deserves to be higher! - Fan_of_Good_Music
It would be stupid to put anyone except tony iommi at the top. not only is he the best guitarist in the bunch, he invented the genre.
Iron man son
Ladies and Gentelmen, I'm glad to indroduce you Bill Steer, the man who started the whole melodic guitar playing. - GREYBOYY
Chaotic and Noisy but Thrash/Death/Black Metal bands were influenced by him. - GREYBOYYV 1 Comment
Ihsahn was the first person who mixed Symphonic and Progressive Elements to Black Metal, he deserves to be in list. - GREYBOYY
He is simply the best
Dave can play 100% better than Euronymous. YOU CAN'T EVEN COMPARE THEM. I think Tony, Dave, and Dimebag deserve to be much higher. Also, why isn't Mick Thompson on here at all?
Why should I comment? You all know why he's here, RIP. - GREYBOYY
