There is no way in hell Alexi Laiho is the “best” metal guitarist ever. He’s great and all sure, but I can’t stand to listen to the same diminished, melodic minor and pentatonic sweep tapping all the time.
I mean, he rated higher than John Petrucci, James Hetfield, Marty Friedman, Tony Iommi, Randy, Dime and Mikael Åkerfeldt FFS.
I know it’s all just some people’s opinions (as is this I might add!), but still!
