Jim Root and Mick Thomson are the World’s Best Guitarists

Two Slipknot guitarists; Jim Root and Mick Thomson were awarded the title of ‘Best Metal Guitarist in the World’ by a poll distributed by Music Radar. Both received 17 thousand votes.

The number beat other big names such as James Hetfield and Kirk Hammet (Metallica); James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch (KORN); Olavi Mikkonen and Johan Söderberg (Amon Amarth); Richard Z. Kruspe and Paul Landers (Rammstein); and Phil Sgrosso and Nick Hipa (As I Lay Dying).

There are also names like Sean Long and Mat Welsh (While She Sleeps); Kerry King and Gary Holt (Slayer); Adam Dutkiewicz and Joel Stroetzel (Killswitch Engage); and Alexi Laiho and Daniel Freyberg (Children Of Bodom).

Meanwhile, Jim Root recently reacted to fans who said Slipknot’s new album We Are Not Your Kind lacked guitar solos. The Iowa-based numetal band released their sixth studio album in early August and became their first album to top the UK album charts after 18 years.
