    Greg from Allegaeon needs some love in this thread. Super underrated player and actually writes modern classical music instead of just mimicking Baroque composers. Bonus: He actually has a degree in Classical guitar/composition iirc. It shows imo, just like it did with AJ Minette from THA


    just wait for the classical bits around 3:00. So fuckin good.

    Great topic , actually learned about some 'new' stuff ( the today's Japanese scene .. ) ..
    I would like to add Dean Lamb , Tobi Morelli and Jared Smith ( the string section of Archspire ) aswell as Muhammed Suicmez ( Necrophagist ) and probably all the bands / guitarists of the '00 - present era in this style .

    Jari Mäenpää from Wintersun is heavily influenced by 80's/90's shredders. Sometimes stuff he plays sounds pretty unreal.



    Teemu Mäntysaari is really amazing too, more "sophisticated" or educated than Jari, but very underrated guitar player. Wintersun, Ensiferum, Imperanon, where these guys played or do play nowadays were never too neoclassical, it's just an influence in sound and note choices.
