Incredible time signatures. He and Willie come up with some of the most refreshing stuff. Their sound is second to none and extremely unique

He is so awesome, just check out some of his riffs and solos. You all should love LAMB OF GOD

His playing style is the most unique. He has made tremendous fast riffs on the E,A,D stings... He plays effortlessly..!

43 JB Brubaker

JB's soaring riffs and flowing melodies have set him apart from the rest of the pack. He has taken a different look at what lead guitar makes a lead guitar. While not being overbearing or over-powerful his playing beings a type of forethought that shows that a lot of care and process was taken into the writing of each song.

44 Monte Money

Monte is amazing on guitar he Does shred but in a different way from everybody else. His solos are so full of passion and the way he chooses to play is his way of showing his passion. He can definitely reach those electrifying speeds that you would hear in lets say Jacky Vincent's solos but Monte chooses creativity over speed which creates beautiful solos and matches the song perfectly.

I really like his style of playing. He could shred but chooses not to

45 Mia (Mejibray)

48 Matt Good

The gutairist from From First to Last and Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows.D.R.U.G.S. was formed by exceptionally talented members taken from other bands to band together and create a "Super Band"

49 David Davidson

David Davidson and Ol Drake (Evile/Solo) have both reinvigorated guitar virtuosity for the modern era. I see Davidson, specifically, as the new Chuck Schuldiner. Not that his style resembles Chuck's, but because he brings a new brand of complexity, originality, and heaviness like Chuck did in the past. - surgeonsanic
