Top 10 Metal Albums of 2017 with the Best Guitars

This list can include metal albums that may not be among the top albums of 2017 but they have impressive guitars.

The Top Ten

1 Aathma - Persefone
2 Will To Power - Arch Enemy

Jeff Loomis joined the band for this album and Michael Amott still has it. - Metal_Treasure

3 Reaching Into Infinity - Dragonforce

I am not a Dragonforce fan but I can't deny Herman Li is an impressive guitarist. Sam Totman is very good, too. - Metal_Treasure

4 Urn - Ne Obliviscaris
5 For The Demented - Annihilator

Jeff Waters is always perfect even when the albums aren't. - Metal_Treasure

6 Immortals - Firewind

Firewind isn't a major band but their guitarist is amazing (Gus G) - Metal_Treasure

7 Gods of Violence - Kreator
8 ... of the Dark Light - Suffocation
9 Incorruptible - Iced Earth

I added this album mostly for the rhythm guitar (Jon Schaffer) - as a reviewer said, Iced Earth adhere to their trademarks, one of the them being "riffs as big as oak trees."
But their new lead guitarist, Jake Dreyer, is very good, too. He added a new, a bit different and more updated guitar sound to Iced Earth songs. - Metal_Treasure
