Best Metal Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold

You guys kidding me? When synyster is standing on the coffin, just shredding come on guys.

42 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

Randy Rhoads left this world way too soon... but during the short period he lived, he wrote some brilliant and truly memorable songs and solos, such as this one. Rest in Peace, Randy

Very iconic solo... Nothing more to add.

Oh god please upvote this. Randy would have given us so many more of this if only he was still here...

43 Walk - Pantera
44 Holy Diver - Dio V 2 Comments
45 Kissing the Shadows - Children of Bodom

This is one of the best metal solos I've heard so far. In my openion it should be ranked much more above than 18. Great Job Children Of Bodom!
Keep up the great work...

46 Son of Lilith - Coroner

The rhythm and drums are so slick when they're backing the solo

47 Iced Earth - Iced Earth
48 Strike - Primal Fear

Awesome twin lead guitars, harmonies. Fast, long and melodic solo. - Metal_Treasure

49 Only for the Weak - In Flames

How the hell isn't this song mentioned yet, come on people, this is one of the most melodic solos there exists. You can feel the emotion as the solo runs through your vein, it's just EPIC.

If u say u r a 🤘Head, u should vote for this masterpiece! - ShahryRKnoT

Really fast crazy solo by Kai Hansen

52 Stranger in a Strange Land - Iron Maiden
53 Hell Patrol - Judas Priest

55 A Moment of Clarity - Death

Chuck schuldiner is a GOD of metal. Not because he created death metal, but because is music evolved every time. A moment of clarity is a very emotional song and the solo is epic!

Such an underrated song, and even an underrated band compared to bands at the top like Megadeth, Metallica, Maiden, etc. This is one of the most emotional solos I've ever heard and you can just really feel Chuck when you hear it. RIP Chuck

The funniest thing of this list is that Chuck schuldiner's 'A Moment of Clarity' is sitting on 50th spot. Come on guys, listen to it then choose to vote it or not.

Best metal solos list and Chuck Schuldiner isn't even in the top 10. That's an absolute shame, he was one of the greatest metal guitarists of all time.
