    Brian Eschbach of The Black Dahlia Murder. The guy turned out Miasma and Nocturnal which are both very solid, badass albums.
    Definitely agree with John Browne too. Dude is beastly.

    gunface from The Red Chord, great lead player, but where he really shines is the power of the RIFF!

    Dallas Toller-Wade from Nile. of course Karl Sanders rips some mean ass solos and harmonies, but Dallas writes all the sickest songs...think As He Creates So He Destroys

    Had a dude at Starbucks today tell me he's overrated, and i quote: "So he's considered like one of the best guitarists in history right?? But he plays like 3-4 chords TOPS in each song..." then he played me some We Came as Romans and said i'm crazy for not liking it... I felt like fuckin' smacking him. :facepalm:

    This. Nocturnal always provides me with awesome daily riffage to listen to! :shred:

    To add to the list:

    - Martin Henriksson from Dark Tranquility
    - Alex Bailey from Sylosis (super tight rhythm)
    - Javier Reyes from Animals as Leaders (doesn't get much of the spotlight but definitely not to be overlooked, if for anything else, just for the fact that he's hanging along with Tosin's playing)
    - Really dig the dudes from Textures, i know 1 of em just left, too bad but the rhythm guitar riffs are awesome.
    - Marcus Bertilsson from Miseration
    - Gary Holt and Lee Atlus from Exodus
    - The dudes from Havok

    found it hard picking just 1 rhythm guitarist because i think most of the bands i listen to share the duties of both rhythm and leads :scratch:

    Willie Adler from Lamb of God was the first one that came to my mind. Wish I had his right hand.

    The riffs are everything to me, very few lead guitarists I could bear to listen to for more than 16 bars of a song.

    It's the obvious choice, but Hetfield will always be king, for me.
