Top 10 Thrash Metal Rhythm GuitaristsMetal_Treasure Most metal fans would agree that thrash metal's got one of the best metal riffs, if not the best. Thrash riffs are great for handbanging.
This list is about the thrashers who make many of us happy - the rhythm guitarists.
The Top Ten
The King of Down Picking. Unbelievable stamina. - Metal_Treasure
He still can play like a boss. I love his downpicking technique. - Userguy44
Rhythm + Lead guitars for Annihilator.
His picking speed in Human Insecticide is incredible. In general, he plays more intricate thrash riffs than most of the thrash guitarists.
Songs with my favorite rhythm guitar:
Phantasmagoria, Human Insecticide, Alison Hell, Schizos (Are Never Alone, parts I and II), Sixes and Sevens - Metal_Treasure
He isn't just a guitarist - he wrote the music AND lyrics to the best Slayer songs, including the most iconic metal riff of all time - Raining Blood.
R.I.P. Jeff. - Metal_Treasure
Rhythm + Lead guitars for Coroner (technical/prog thrash).
An underrated and unnoticed thrash guitarist. Very technical, very skillful.
My favorite riffs: Masked Jackal, Absorbed, Semtex Revolution, R.I.P., Why It Hurts - Metal_Treasure
Eric Peterson of Testament - Metal_Treasure
He's been playing rhythm guitars for Overkill since 2001 - Metal_Treasure
