We're into the Quarterfinals of our Greatest Metal Guitarist competition. Having started with 32 of metal's most talented shredders, we're now down to only eight. Our polls once again received hundreds of thousands of votes and the will of the fans has placed eight guitarists into the Quarterfinals.

The Quarterfinals, much like our first two rounds, is incredibly diverse. We've got multiple metal sub genres represented along with many shredding styles and generational gaps. Polls are now open for our Quarterfinals, its time for you, the fans, to determine who will advance to the semifinals of our Greatest Metal Guitarist tournament.

Remember, if you don't see your favorite metal frontman in the running (Dave Mustaine, Mikael Akerfeldt etc.), don't worry, because we'll be launching a Greatest Metal Frontman poll soon. Start voting in the Quarterfinals by clicking the button below:
