WHO IS THE MOST OVER RATED METAL GUITARIST
 
lately im getting tired of seeing Kerry Kings face everywhere. I mean he writes some cool riffs....but come on...has he ever written one really good lead with some feeling to it?

FearFrost 2004-12-07 12:46

This has been done.

MetalThrashingMad 2004-12-07 12:47

Kirk Hammet.

wow, why is everyone such a dick to me? sorry i didnt know i was supposed to to post things for sale, since then ive tried to make relevant posts. seriously, what the fuck?

MetalThrashingMad 2004-12-07 12:59

This thread is nothing but a zing at Kerry King. I make fun of various other bands I dont like, so I cant blame you for making fun of him, but this thread is a waste of space. Make fun of people in existing threads, or, keep to yourself.

Understand NOW?

ihave27frets 2004-12-07 13:03

im not making fun of him, ive met him, hes cool and a good guitarist, i just dont like his style of lead playing and was seeing what other people dislike and like.

MetalThrashingMad 2004-12-07 13:06

I'm personally a fan, he isn't real technical or anything I just like his choppy sporadic solos.

obrien20 2004-12-07 13:40

you did ask for a Overrated guitarist, Okay. I think KG just don't belong in that category because his excelent riffage, some of his solos are improvised, some not, but anyway, just look his past man!

its hard to point one, i'll go for Rick Rozz (ex-Death guitarist), he just couldn't play Spiritual Healing songs and Chuck kicked his ass off! :p

by the way;

Rest in Piece almighty!

Kirk Hammet. No contest.

I want to Daniel Mongrain play next to him and totaly whip his ass.

Rick Metal 2004-12-07 14:48

Word.

alright 27 frets....just because you learned a few slayer songs doesn't give you the right to make this post. Besides, no one cares that you have 27 frets.

Kirk Hammet is overrated, I wouldnt give much for his leads, theyre covered in wah.

johnmansley 2004-12-07 15:28

Between '84 and '89 he had some pretty good leads but since the Black album he's gone backwards. In summary, Hammet is way over-rated post-1989.

Don't get me wrong, I think the guy is a good guitarist, but for me, Trey Azagthoth is a little over-rated. Although technically adept, none of his solos are memorable and I strugge to remember one that wasn't drenched in wah and whammy effects. I've definitely gone off his lead work since I've heard players like Jon Levasseur and Daniel Mongrain.

pretty much only the newest shit has too much wah in the solos. but alot of the older shit that i listened to, like ride, kill em all, black, i loved the solos.

agreed.

Kirk Hammet is the most overrated guitarist in rock for sure.

whoever said Randy Rhoads is overrated is a dumbfuck. :)

PantericA 2004-12-07 16:48

kirk hammet is definitely one of the most overrated. when i saw metallica live it was all wah. even the old shit. when he plays live its all covered in wah.
