    Yep, I agree Tim Collis is a beast. He's still one of the best I've heard in the genre.
    Even as a metal head, I can appreciate the creativity of what mathrock guitarists are doing. If I'm being honest I find mathrock in general to be a lot more interesting to listen to than a lot of metal. There's definitely a lot of underappreciated guitarists in some of these bands.

    Molly Tuttle. She's mostly a bluegrass player but she has some great chops and her picking is top notch.

    also Billy strings, who's a really great flatpicker as well

    Molly's Rise EP is fantastic, I haven't given her full album nearly as much attention as I have that EP

    Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein. Just writes fun riffs, and punishes the instrument.

    I'm surprised those Frankenbeasts he apparently built himself aren't in worse shape than they are. They have some damage and used home repair materials to fix them, but that only furthers than Frankenstein nature of his persona.

    Oh totally. Apparently they’re immensely heavy too. I think it’s like a carbon fiber neck and bolt on wings or something. I’d love own one, not the knockoff Oktober guitars one though.

    Graphite. The Oktober guitars one is barely even like it. The only similarities are the vague shape (and I don't think the dimensions are correct) of the body and the headstock. Doyle himself said that the dude isn't making them how he wants them lol.

    The cool thing is (aside from them being heavy as fuck) is the wings can be removed and replaced when they are too fucked to be repaired again.

    Also, his amp rig set up is apparently equally as weird.

    Paul Nowoczynski of Abnegation and Creation Is Crucifixion. I love his distinctive style and his playing of a Charvel fusion made me want and eventually aquire one.

    ETA: Pitchshifter's early lead player back when they imitated Godflesh. I still trying to copy whatever synth like modulation sound and harmonics he'd used.

    Greg Kubacki from Car Bomb
    Michael Hoggard from Ulcerate
    Gunface from the Red Chord (and also I guess Umbra Vitae)
    Chris "OJ" Ojeda from Byzantine
    Kyle Rasmussen from Vitriol makes the best faces for sure.
    Antoine and Sebastien from Ion D
    Christopher Bradley from Beneath the Massacre

    Josh Travis of course...

    I know this one doesn't count but, I gotta say Keith Merrow too. I have really ejoyed his comeback to the youtubes. He has me GASing for a PRS Archon, though.

    Teppei from Thrice. Teppei gets zero cred for his ability to write sick riffs. All the stuff on Artist in the Ambulance/Illusion of Safety/Identity Crisis was killer. Even the later stuff on Vheissu/Alchemy Index/Major Minor/TBEITBN/Palms has a lot of really memorable riffs.

    I wonder how he's doing. For awhile Paul's wife was giving updates, then it just stopped.

    I am curious as well. That whole thing was just bizarre and really sad.

    Yeah, dude lost everything.

    I've heard anecdotes of people seeing him around, acting somewhat normal and seemingly okay, but nothing confirmed.

    Dude had some sort of psychotic break/episode. Lit his (rented) house on fire, broke into the neighbors' place naked.

    Police had to tase him. Put on psyche hold and suicide watch.

    It was all over the "metal" news sites about this time last year.
