3. Bill Steer (Carcass, Napalm Death)

4. Karl Sanders (Nile)

5. Anders Bjrler (At the Gates)

6. Mikael kerfeldt (Opeth)

7. James Murphy (Death, Obituary, Cancer, Disincarnate)

8. Kelly Shaefer (Atheist)

20. Paul Ryan (Origin)

I Believe this list to be resonably accurate...Trey, Chuck, Erik Eutan and Luc Lemay are my favourite guitarists. Some i dont agree with...Scott hull is an amazing guitarists but if we are to speak about genre's...they(Pig Destroyer) arent really death metal are they? Luc Lemay should be higher and i think Steeve Hurdle(Gorguts, negativa, purulence) should be in scott hulls place.

Seems just about right to me. Muhammed from Necrophagist is a fantastic player!

Not really into this top xx list business, or widdle-meister competitions, but you can't talk about death metal guitar then go and leave out Coralles/Cutler of Autopsy. Or rather I can't.

Chuck would be my number one - total legend. As much as I like Bolt Thrower I wouldn't necessarily include them for techinal ability. Same with Nicke Andersson.

Decapitated possible deserve a place instead...

Yeah i went to see Morbid Angel play in Germany last year and christ it was affy affy AFFY good.

I saw the video for where the slime live when i was quite young and when i saw the solo being played i was pretty much awestruck by it.

i'd rate Chuck a better player though,better riffs and solos.

Oh aye yeah Control Denied are pretty good , looking forword to see if they release the second album.

Agreed. I'm a man who doesn't mind Judas Priest/Forbidden style vocals, but those vocals were pretty poor...

Chuck did a great job singing Painkiller, he should have sung on the Fragile Art Of Existence too.

That would have been much better. Though i think chuck had the intention of having a slightly more melodic band, beyond the boundries of which death could go.

weird that...he gives up on death and it bites him in the ass in return, a damn shame.:(

Hope they do release the second album...he didn't spend his last few months of his life finishing the recording for it to sit on the shelves collecting dust.
