Good call.

Unoriginal question.
And the poll makes it a versus thread, which aren't allowed.
#22
Both Kirk Hammet and Dimebag.

I seem so cliche when I say this, but they really are my inspirations. Even though my band plays punk, some of our songs are thrash-like and are inspired be thrash.

Euronymous, because of his super clean guitar tone and ultra clean sweeps.


Don't forget the aerodynamic stab-wounds that help him play teh faszt.

In all honesty, this is a great thread idea, but the fact that you put only two guitarists, one of which is not even metal, just destroyed everything.

Michael Amott, Jason Becker, Chuck Schuldiner, and Dimebag.

Speed Metal Symphony and Rising Force are metal.

both of those guitarists play mostly shred/neoclassical.

Cacophony was definitely Metal. I haven't listened to Rising Force.

I don't think they'll be joining the Nekrogestapo anytime soon, though

I'm actually curious as to who influences some of the regs.

No shit, I hate people who make statements like that. "o dis guy has an immortal avatar he must only listen to brutal noise metal"

Both of those guitarists I would say are generally closer to shred than to metal.

Do you guys think that a guitarist will play with a style matching his influences' styles? Like when a person has a list of influences as varied as Burning_Angel's, let's say, is his style jazzy progressive neoclassical blackened death?

Not necessarily. You generally take two or three dominating influences from various styles and never all your influences since not every single genre resonates as well as others in your mind.

I never really considered "shred" a genre, as the term shred itself is rather vague and subject to the listeners opinion (to a certain extent). I find that anything "shred" typically falls into rock or metal. Often neoclassical rock/metal or instrumental rock/metal. Even the jazz fusion style is still largely instrumental rock/metal based with only a portion of the sound even lending itself to jazz theory (and certainly little to do with jazz sound).
