Top 10 Most Talented Metal Musicians Under 40 Years of Age as of 2018A list about the younger generation of metal musicians - there are many remarkable talents out there.
The Top Ten
He is 39 but he already's got a remarkable discography - as a guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and leader of death metal band Children of Bodom. His guitar playing is the thing I like the most, solos in particular.
He started very early as he formed Children of Bodom at 14. - Metal_Treasure
He is 33 - guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and leader of death metal band Obscura. Obscura albums are close to perfection (so far, including the 2018 album).
His riffs epitomize precision and virtuosity. His composing skills are outstanding as well - he succeeds to get a heavy and complex yet melodic sound.
His lyrics are a mix of philosophy, astrophysics and poetry. Also, he's one of the most intelligent guys in metal. And very charming. - Metal_Treasure
He is 37 but he did a lot to deserve the respect he's got. Great drummer. - Metal_Treasure
He is 36 and he's one of the most technical guitarists ever (a sweep picker) - Metal_Treasure
Brain Drill's guitarist is awesome and he is 34. He's the main reason I listen to Brain Drill. - Metal_Treasure
Obscura bassist is simply a beast (he's 33).
Don't be surprised (or annoyed) by seeing several current and past members of Obscura on this list. They are really talented and their virtuosity is literally jaw-dropping. And this isn't only my opinion - here's a quote from a review of Obscura's Diluvium, 2018: "Apparently, talented musicians grow on trees in Germany - and Obscura happened to pick them all." - Metal_Treasure
He is 36 - vocalist, violinist, spokesperson and primary co-songwriter of Ne Obliviscaris (extreme prog metal). He's also a violin teacher. A very intelligent and nice guy.
He's very talented and what he does in this band is pretty unique. Moreover, the band's got a unique sound mostly thanks to him. - Metal_Treasure
He's only 23 but did a great job on Obscura's Diluvium, 2018 (lead guitar) - Metal_Treasure
He's 34 and he's a brilliant drummer - he has both metal brutality and jazz gracefulness - Metal_Treasure
He's 30 and he is the new Cryptopsy vocalist. He does a great job and even succeeds to sound quite a lot like Lord Worm, which is something. - Metal_Treasure
He is 33. He was crowned as the Fastest Feet in Australia in 2006 (he was the Australian finalist for the World's Fastest Drummer Competition). He was 20-21 yo.
Drummer for Ne Obliviscaris - Metal_Treasure
