    Aww, I was about to say Comfortably Numb as the first one. It still is my favourite so far. Both of them.
    Another from Pink Floyd is Money, makes me feel cheered up.
    Then theres almost anyhing by Kingston Wall, wicked playing.

    Pretty much none of the good solos are Anders, right?

    doesn't Dag Swano do some of them too?

    As for solos: Iron Maiden - Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner

    Yeah me too. I also love Windowpane's second solo.

    My favs are :

    Testament - First Strike is Deadly, Over the Wall, Return to Serenity
    Judas Priest - Painkiller, A Touch of Evil, Beyond the Realms of Death
    Symphony X - Of Sins and Shadows

    Rush - La Villa Strangiato

    Neil Peart - O Baterista

    Sepultura - Desperate Cry

    Megadeth - Ashes in Your Mouth

    Metallica - The Struggle Within

    Opeth - Lots of stuff, but Godhead's Lament, The Night and the Silent Water and Black Rose Immortal are probably my favorites.

    others too, but my head hurts now...

    "fat chicks rule" and it had a small coffee stain on it, near the collar.

    ps: do you remember Tad? i never got to listen to them. i just remember my older brother had some of their stuff and, of course, i thought they must be cool if he had them.

    Nah, Anders has an incredible solo on DD, I'll find it when I have the album playing.

    Dan basically co produces the album I believe, and considering Dan had to bring Simon Solomon on board Bloodbath to belt out Dan's solos, I'm glad he didn't do any of the DM solos. [sorry Dan!]

    Death's Design destroys all previous Diabolical Masquerade imo...
    but anyway you guys mentioned Temple of the dog awhile ago, the solo to "say hello to heaven" is totally fitting/catchy/emotional.

    ^Tad was a grunge era band (reportedly heavier than most) from Boise. The singer/guitarist was also a lumberjack. No shitting. I've just never bothered to listen to them.

    Some good solos mentioned here, especially deep peace and comfortably numb, a couple of my faves.
    One of my favourites at the moment is about 6.30 into 'shores in flames' by Bathory, right after Quorthon screams "FYAAHR!!!"
    Gets me every time.

    I'm adding every single solo on Carcass' "Heartwork" to my list. Mike Amott rules.

    Comfortably Numb = The most over-rated guitar solo in history. It's not even good, let a lone great.

    As for my picks...
    Death - Lack of Comprehension
    Dream Theater - Lines In The Sand
    Dream Theater - Trial of Tears
    Symphony X - Masquerade '98
    Symphony X - Smoke And Mirrors (all of them, including those insane intro sweeps)
    The Eagles - Hotel California
    Testament - The New Order
    Peter Frampton - Do You Feel Like I Do?
    Nile - Unas Slayer of the Gods
