Best Metal Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Wasted Years - Iron Maiden

Only Iron Maiden make best guitar solos... Listen to the solos of HALLOWED BE THY NAME, ACES HIGH,

I'm surprised wasted years isn't in the top 10

82 Unholy Warcry - Rhapsody

Not a very popular band (yet), but this guitar solo is MINDBLOWING! This inspired me to pick up a guitar.

83 Fermented Offal Discharge - Necrophagist

Nothing will ever beat muhammad's sheer godliness

84 The Sleep - Pantera

I can't believe this wasn't already on the list. This should have been in the top 5 and not Metallica -coming from a Metallica fan.

85 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!

89 Am I Evil? - Metallica
90 Lucretia - Megadeth

Most technical Marty Friedman's solo in Megadeth, way harder than Tornado of Soul or Holy wars. Soulful, heavy, amazing. No more words can define this solo.

91 Evil In You - Kalmah
92 Twisted Truth - Pestilence

Perfect minmalism, composition and feeling in both soli. Especially the second.

93 Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
94 Stricken - Disturbed
95 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden

Why the hell wasn't this already on the list?


96 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
97 Gates of Babylon - Rainbow V 1 Comment
98 The Last Baron - Mastodon
99 Scene Three: II. Fatal Tragedy - Dream Theater
100 Dream Warriors - Dokken

This should listened by everyone

Whay a underrated band, great guitar work on this song and killer lyrics
And the solo is great. George Lynch was on his A game and delivered a skilled atmospheric solo, he choice not to shred the whole thing (always nice to see a little change).
A almost perfect song with a solo for the books
By the way this was on the soundtrack for Nightmere on Elmstreets soundtrack
