Best Metal Guitar DuosMetalFoREVer1228
The Top Ten
This duo can be said to be the pioneer not only lead and rhythm player but both combined aka twin guitars, see which metal band in the 70s like this no one or not know (yes I know there are others, but this is talking metal). This duo can compete with modern shredder, see their skill as 70s guitarists and now can play all metal guitar techniques like shredder today. Absolute evolution!
They created this!
These Judas Priest guitarists should be no. 1
by the way, what the hell Avenged Sevenfold guitarists is higher than these legends? - Alcort
Only thé best
Listen to songs like Afterlife and you will see the greatness
They are the best guitar duo there is.
There will never be a better duo ever!
Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge a7x fan but...? Smith and Murray are by far the greatest guitar duo ever.
I don't know why I didn't include these guys in the first place. They're the ones who started the whole "dual guitar" thing used in Metalcore and melodeath and any other genre and/or artist that utilizes the technique - MetalFoREVer1228
No doubt the best duo in metal, add Janick Gers and it is the best trifecta in metal
Ridiculous that this isn't #1
Yes! I love Slipknot solos especially Duality and Pulse of the Maggots - Danielsun182
Hear their guitar riff and unbeatable guitar skills in Rise Of The Tyrant album... :)
They're unbeatable duo guitar players to me...
These guys by far my favorite too dual guitarist in Metal all the great music they wrote with King diamond on vocals pure evil
Yes should be top ten, these guys are highly overlooked and underrated.
Should be top 10
Perhaps the most underrated guitar duo... Period.
Very underrated guitar duos, should be top 10 - Alcort
Very underrated guitar duos really they are my favourite duos for guitar..
But synsyter and zacky are too overrated come on every time simillar riff sounding every time simillar solos.. But I'm not gonna deny that they tried to do something different at their last album "nightmare" but they couldn, t play it technically.. - nooreldeen
Abbath and Demonaz didn't play Guitar at the same time. Abbath was a bassist till 1998. Demonaz always played guitar until he stopped playing in 97 due to tendinitis in his arms that prevented him from playing the guitar at the speeds that were required. Abbath picked up guitar from there as they had several studio bassists. Demonaz rejoined in 2015 but Abbath quit months later. - Snipenu16
