    Jason Becker
    Tony MacAlpine
    James Murphy (not shred, but excellent nonetheless)
    Chris Poland
    Marty Friedman

    That should get you started. Not exactly better guitarists, but better music certainly.

    Truth. Both Yngwie and Angelo are like, "HAY GUYZ WE PLAY FAST THAT MEANS WE CAN MAKE MUSIC WITH NO SOUL AND PEOPLE WILL STILL BUY IT!"

    His solo album isn't out yet, is it? That's why I didn't include him.

    If you just want guitarists who are better than Malmsteen, I'll be here all day namedropping. I'm just listing guys with solo projects.

    I prefer Petrucci to Yngwie.

    =/

    Plus Petrucci always has Portnoy and Myung in tow.

    Thats a definate plus.

    And who was that godly guy that played on Warmen's albums?

    Sami something?

    I don't believe I saw Persuader on any one of those lists! You all should be ashamed of yourselves. BTW, does anyone have any I could leech from them? Soulseek hates me.

    Black Sabbath was metal. I'm not sure if they were power metal though

    Whether they were metal or not is a highly volatile and heavily debated subject in the metal community.

    If they were indeed metal, however, they were doom metal, not power.

    Not true at all, there were quite a few bands around before Pantera who were already established as Power Metal.

    Seriously. You all need to listen to Persuader. The singer's almost better than Hansi Kursch!

    pantera is in no way power metal. They are glam mixed with thrash. I really dont like the band mainly cuz they're so overrated. Cowboys from hell was good. Thank god Dimebag got shot in the middle of a concert. Think about it. If he went out as a snobby old guy, he would have had no respect when he died of overdose or natural causes. He went out like a pro
