As I Lay Dying
Kris is a really cool guy, met him a few times at GG and it's always great to chat.
Keeping in mind how metal rhythm has changed over time, their body of work including influence on everyone who followed plus the fact that they are still doing it today for ridiculously long concerts and at their freakin age...I still believe the first two deserve their place and have their merits...most of what we know and hear today is birthed from their work whether or not they're still great today.
James Hetfield/Dave Mustaine
Dino (Fear Factory)
Cannibal Corpse (anyone who's been in CC)
Jesper (Old In Flames)
I am my favorite rhythm guitar player.
Don't have any other favorites really, but there are a lot of good ones out there!
Another vote for Krantz! His time is amazing...
Also, another on the metal side - Jeff Waters.
Chris Amott (along w/ Michael Amott)
Andreas Kisser (very underrated)
A lot of these guitarists I totally agree with. Tons of these guys are fuckin amazing like Rutan, Hauch, Merrow, Jimi, Chuck, and many more.
But how the fuck did no one mention Pat O Brien and Rob Barrett of Cannibal Corpse?
Just some killer shit when pat joined. Rob is also a tight ass player. Anything from Unleashing the bloodthirsty to now is just pure fucking awesomeness.
(Also off topic, but Alex Webster is criminally underrated bassist. Like fuck the man is insane.)
Honestly, being from Florida I've seen CC more times than I could count. Probably upwards of 15 times. Pat O' Brien is insanely good. Rob Barrett is insanely not. So much so Idk how they even let him play in the band. He's so sloppy it's ridiculous. Pat on the other hand is one of the tightest players out there. There are a lot of songs that they've said they can't play live because "certain members of the band aren't up to it" and he's the only one that fits that description to a tee. I don't mean to dog on the guy too much because I've met him a few times and he's generally a really cool dude, but even he knows his playing isn't the greatest. Even on their slow songs he seems like he's getting lost in the sauce at times. The few times I managed to catch them when it was Jack and Pat though, man oh man were they tight.
The Alex Webster bit I can agree with, he's a great bassist, but I'm not sure I'd call anyone from that band underrated being they're probably the most commercially successful death metal band. If it's not them by this point they're probably trailing right behind Behemoth or something.
tl;dr, Pat and Alex are amazing musicians. They deserve their praise. Rob is a great dude. His playing not so much.
Yeah. Hopefully Pat can get back into the spotlight. Ever since the incident shit went radio silent.
Most of the guys from the big thrash bands are really good (Mustaine, King, Holt, Peterson...).
I'm particularly impressed how Kreator's Mille Petrozza manages to play all that stuff live without any problems... and sing.
Besides metal, I'd say that John Frusciante playing is rather impressive.
The ultimate master though is Ian D'Sa. His rhythm is tight and his chording is off this world. I tried to learn a couple of their songs and it opened a whole word of different approaches to me.
I was just thinking about that. I feel like I haven't heard anything about that situation from the start. I understand the band probably wants to honor his privacy but I'd at least like to know when he's returning to the fold.
Drop from Sybreed, easily. His tone on Pulse of Awakening is my favorite rhythm tone.
Guys from Darkest Hour
Guys from As Blood Runs Black
Guy from All Shall Perish - but this one is like cheating since the rhythms are almost leadwork anyways on the last album.
I don’t know everyone’s names but yeah. Some of my metalcore faves.
going to have to be boring and say Hetfield
Pat's looking like he's in good health and doing well, saw this yesterday: https://www.instagram.com/p/B8qwbuPhoeN/?utm_source=ig_embed
I saw that aswell.
I wish we could learn more about what the hell is going on with pat.I heard that CC is recording in 2020 so I wanna know if pat will take part or if Rutan will stick around awhile
steve clark (rip)
Not that they are my favorite band but John Browne, is right hand picking is just inhuman and hypnotising to look at. He admitted himself that he developed that due to being inspired by Hetfield's playing, so i can totally get whoever mentions Hetfield here.
Agreed. Wish I could afford riffhard or buy the whole thing up front
Sheesh i just looked it up and that's a pretty steep monthly fee.
