67 Homage for Satan - Deicide

One of the best Death Metal solos ever, this should be higher up on the list.

Best death metal solo ever.

68 The Unforgiven III - Metallica

This would be higher up if a grand total of more than 8 people listened to death magnetic

Very underrated song, fantastic buildup & great delivery.

69 Blackbird - Alter Bridge
70 Glasgow Kiss - John Petrucci

Has someone heard this one? Because this should be number1... The entire song is "that perfect solo" only a virtuoso guitarist like Petrucci can play... The last part is so good... Every time I listen to it gives me goosebumps...

Andy Laroque and chuck schuldiner kicked my ass with this solo!

73 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden V 2 Comments
74 In the Name of God - Dream Theater
75 Lonely Day - System Of A Down
76 Freezing Moon - Mayhem

Best solo ever. And I'm actually a Maiden fan...

77 Domination - Pantera

This godly solo can only be described in itself! The song is a classic Pantera song, until it builds into the solo and breakdown, ultimately making a legendary piece in metal history!

Pantera's most technical solo.


78 Halo - Machine Head
79 Faith & Decision - Versailles
80 Never, Ever - HammerFall
