Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance top Music Radar's "Best Metal Guitarists" poll


Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance have topped Music Radar's "Best Metal Guitarists" poll. You can read an excerpt below.


2016 will be remembered as the year in which Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance returned to what they do best; shredding like demons. Seventh album The Stage is Avenged Sevenfold’s first new music in three years, and it’s the sound of Syn and Zacky unleashing the beast in typically stylish and aggressive form.

The jagged Paradigm, the ferocious God Damn and the frankly astonishing 15 minute epic Exist are mere tasters of what is a nearly perfect album, and serve as a staggering reminder of the formidable talent that these axe-slingers share. A well-deserved win.
