I think Ivar Bjørnson did a wicked job with Enslaved's Yggdrasill, mainly because he knew when to NOT play.

Well , am I getting flamed about it ? no . do ppl answer my questions ? yes .
And I only create threads to see what ppl think and discuss. If you get annoyed by it , i'm sorry.

Jordan Rudess and Michael Pinella, like Bo said (at least in terms of technical talent).

My favorite is Martin Brandstrom from Dark Tranquillity. He adds more to the atmosphere of their music than any other keyboardist does for their band.

Rudess, the man is a musical prodigy.

Michael Pinella (Symphony X), I believe is the most gifted.

Jens Johansson ... Launched to stardom from Rising Force with Yngwie Malmsteen and has done many memorable things in Stratovarius.

Henrik Klingenberg (Sonata Arctica) just for being a beast, and breaking the stereotypical keyboardist persona.

Marco Sneck (Kalmah)

Tuomas Holopainen (Nightwish) for amazing songwriting and no Lead Guitar copying with Square synths or Saws.
#23
Vitalij Kuprij, like jordan rudess and every other overrated metal keyboardist, he's not that great in skill, but at least he KNOWS how to play classical to some extent

Janne Warman, his melodys and solos go with the guitars so well


Which might be a product of Alexi writing the keyboard-parts as well...
#26
Olli Savolainen from Shade Empire, becuase he can layer properly, and writes some of the most amazing symphonic keyboard I've ever heard.

Dimmu borgir dude isnt bad.


Mystis. Yeah he is good . he can write some serious shit

I like the guy from Dark Tranquillity because he's tasteful and dosent do wanking keyboard solos.
#33
My Conlusion :
My favorite and the best to ME would be "Mystis" Cause he writes most of the music for dimmu borgir and I can tell which ones were written by him.. He can compose some very good melody instead of just playing what others wrote.
Eradication Instinct Defined <-One example
Progenies of the Great Apocalypse <-second example.

But Rudess is just number 1 . I've seen some things in you tube that my brains were blown out by his skills.

You have to give it to Rudess, because he doesnt just rely on killer speed, he can play slow and easy stuff and make it sound great.

Quote by DeathLegionaire
Janne is good, but he doesn't know when to not play.


This is one of the greatest flaws in many keyboard-players. They just don't know when to shut the hell up.
