I've included two soloists from each band incase some people feel that the solos from other members of the band or former members were of greater stature. My opinion on this is that the two bands were the best of their time in the fact that they both are very inspiring and influential, but the solos from each band couldnt be more different. Slayers solos were more focused on the speed and darker sound of the solos. While Metallica wanted solos that were going to focus more on the whole sound of the piece and would be more towards the styles of classical musicians such as Bach or Mozart. What I mean by that is that Metallica wanted their solos to be understood and heard clearly through and through. Not to say anything bad about Slayer but the fact that Metallicas solos are far more clear just gives me this impression. So, what are your thoughts on this? Who had the best solos, Slayer or Metallica?

I dissagree. I think they're all great guitar players. Okay maybe Dave had the most talent on his instrument, but it's not like Tallica got bad after he left, they only got better and developed more as band. Again, just my opinion, I just don't think Metallica lost their intensity after Dave left.

As for the solos, Metallica without a doubt. Slayer's more about the drums and the fast riffs.

Dave Mustaine solos are the best... Technically talking, I think that the solos from Mustaine destroy King, Hannemen and Hammett solos... That's surprise me that Mustaine have only 28 votes...

Mustaine wrote all the solos for Kill 'Em All, Hammett simply plyed them, that's the main reason Mustaine hates Hammett. Mustaine also contributed to Ride the Lightning and The Call of Ktulu seeing as he is credited, which if I'm not mistaken makes 11 songs to which he contributed not five.

first of all, I dont think if Mustains hates Hammett and if he hates it shows that he is an absolute Ididiot. but I think dave mustaine's fans hate Hammett the most. hehe, and the other thing is that this poll speaks about playing solos not writting music. and kirk plays more better than mustaine its clear.

basically the poll asks which band has the best solos and then which musician. it doesn't ask about who plays the solos. the question is genaral if i get it well..

i asked cause i know that 99% of metallica's solos are played and writen from hammet (except those writen from mustaine oufcurse). just because hetfield doesn't know music theory.

first of all your text was a bit bad writen and i found it difficult to understand what you mean. now from what i understood: i never said that each member of a band writes and plays it's own instrument. it's logical that the music most times is writen from more than 1 member of a band. but the solos is something different. hetfield does not write the solos. he doesn't even know well to write the notes! surely he can write a riff and play it to hammet and then hammet is going to write a solo based on hetfields riff. this doesn't mean he wrote the solo.....

Kerry! mustain and hammett suck. Hanneman is is amazing but king is better. and cooler!
and in case some of you didn't know, mustain isn't megadeths lead guitarist and the solos that he does play suck.
thats just my opinion.

I chose Slayer (King). I know King really isnt the creator of the solo and hes more on Speed but Slayer owns my life and King is god
