Which one would you take if you had to deicide on the most skilled german guitarist in your opinion. If you chose Other explain who's you favourite. The guitarist can be russian or something else. You can vote for him as long as he plays in a german band(for example Victor Smolski and Mille Petrozza aren't german) or he is reallygerman.
I vote Victor Smolski because you only have to listen to him. He's amazing with Rage and solo. Then Matthias Jabs.

Although he isnt my absolute fave, I have to mention Frank "Blackfire" Godzik. He singlehandedly transformed Sodom from a 3rd/4th tier run of the mill, horrible sounding band, into the the thrash legends that they are today. He only stayed in that band for 2 albums, but that was long enough to set them on the path to greatness. Tom Angelripper has much to thank Mr. Blackfire for.

He also kicked ass with Kreator, especially on "Coma Of Souls". xD

Sodom and greatness are two words that will never go together. Their best albims are mediocre at best. Same for destruction bt and even kreator aren't too good. But at least by far the vest of three big teutonic thrash names. All german thrash is pretty lame to be honest. When they started out they tried to be like their American examples but failed miserably. But somehow currently they seem to be revered as some sort of gods when back in the days they were the laughing stock and rightly so.

We'll just have to agree to disagree then.

I would agree that a lot of Destruction's 80's stuff was very generic. And I more enjoyed individual songs by them during that time as opposed to full albums. However, I would class "The Antichrist" and "Metal Discharge" as great albums. As for Sodom, I would say "Obsessed By Cruelty" is a terrible album. Though I cant imagine how any thrash fan could deny that an album like "Code Red" is leaps and bounds better in terms of quality compared to that wretched album.

Kreator "pretty lame"? Im going to have to totally disagree with that. lol "Pleasure To Kill", "Terrible Certainty" and "Coma Of Souls" are all classic albums IMO.

Persecution Mania and Agent Orange were good, IMO. Rest was mediocre (although M-16 is their best post-AO work), especially their self-titled. Seriously, I hate that album.
Also, I really doubt th

Matthias Jabs is the best of course! The legendary shredder of the Scorpions, then would come Uli Jon Roth. You also forgot Wolf Hoffmann of accept...
