Testament had Steve Digiorgio, he's pretty talented.

I'd go probably go with some tech death here.
#3
I'm thinking Blind Guardian. They have a well thought out song pattern. Andre, as you can tell, is probably the most musically capable member, he writes those kickass leads and solos, as well as lyrics. Marcus provides awesome rythm guitar riffage. Frederik(new drummer), despite his age has shown that his talent goes far beyond how long he has been playing. And Hansi, of course, has an amazing voice and could rip it up on the bass for a while before putting it down to solely sing.

There's to many bands to say "This is the epitomy of what I listen to" for me.
LTD SC-608 Baritone
Schecter 007-Elite
Epi. Les Paul Standard
Jasmine SC312
Boss NS-2
Boss TU-3
Peavey 6505+

well i think the death metal band dying fetus are really good there drummer is absolutley insane



this made me laugh.


for brutal death metal drumming, devourment or flo. i like dying fetus, but the band as a whole is a big meh talent wise. also, it is hard to have a brutal death metal band with a drummer who isn't on some form of amphetamine.

S.O.P. for all brutal death.


Behold................ the arctopus is worth a mention.


This is a really subjective question.

I'd agree. They do write some amazing stuff. They are probably my favorite in this category.

But a close second, and don't say anything just cause they are considered "the only metal band anyone knows on here", but Opeth. And I'm not just saying that, they are AMAZING musicians. Their acoustic stuff especially. No matter how simple some of the acoustoic leads (which most are pretty hefty stretches and such) they make it sound so.... great. And their electric stuff is nowhere near bad, "Bleak", "Forest of October", "In the Mist She is Standing", "Master's Apprentice", all VERY awesome songs. And Mikael's voice is just so versatile. I actually like his real singing voice better than his metal voice, but his metal voice is one of my favorite ones of any band.

Now go ahead and flame me if you wish, but believe me, I'm not basing this on mainstream shit, I love Opeth, and, musically, they are all geniuses.

But like I said, Blind Guardian is my favorite, cause they do write better songs.

I would have to say Atheist, Opeth, Cryptopsy and Nile. All the guys in those bands know how to play their instrument very well.

^^Yea Nevermore, Blind Guardian, and Maiden too. I never thought about them.

I'm wary to say Megadeth, because Marty is the only one who is on a virtuoso level. But Megadeth kicks ass anyway.

I think a lot of bands have talented musicians, but no whole band is ridiculously talented overall. I suppose Cannibal Corpse, but their drummer is mediocre.

There's a difference between technicality and musicality.

I'd say DT, Cynic, Opeth, Spiral Architect, things of that nature.

If you mean technically then I'd say Dream Theater; If you mean musically I'd say Maiden.

Fo sho

I can not think of one band that is technically on the same level as Necrophagist. Muhammed says he wrote the entire Epitaph album on a computer without his guitar, in order to focus 100% on the music, rather than making changes for playability. He basically said if it wasn't playable, fuck it, he'd learn how to play it anyway. You can not top that. Absolutely zero concern for playability/difficulty, because as far as they're concerned, non-playability does not exist.

For the musicality aspect? Opeth, Blind Guardian, and Dream Theater do it for me. I absolutely love Blind Guardian, and Opeth may be all listened out for me, but they still give me goosebumps with that song structure.

And I still thrive to find the production secrets to the leads tones in Mirror, Mirror by Blind Guardian.

Musicality = those three plus Maiden and Deth

He was joking.

Tony had a typo and put "Deam Theater" so he was being a smartass.

Yeah okay, I'd say Death was nice musically. But I believe the prog music consists of the most musicality.

Dream theater is what popped in my head thinking from a technical standpoint, but I like Blind guardian more just from a listening stand point (dont get me wrong I like DT's music alot). So they are who I would say

Musically + Death/Melo/Prog: Opeth
Thrash: Testament were very ****ing good, Megadeth - although i think Mustaine was a good song writer sporadically, for example, only half the tracks on SFSGSW are gems; old Metallica were very very good at dual harmonies, albeit the fact that it was basically Rush and Thin Lizzy rip offs;
Black: Immortal, hands down.
Other: Old Rising Force count?

And Steve DiGorgio wasn't the brains behind Testament's blistering riffery (to whoever said that above), it was Alex Skolnick. Skolnick left between Practice... and Low i think, he's got his own jazz band now - the "Alex Skolnick Trio"... check em out, very cool, got my respect.
As a result of listing <><'s reports I was banned.
