Metal Hammer (UK) - - Contents -

They’re not just the tools that built the world in which this very magazine lives. They’re a sym­bol of cre­ativ­ity, of sub­ver­sive­ness, of heavy metal it­self. This month, we cel­e­brate the songs, the so­los, the riffs and the leg­ends that helped make the gui­tar the most iconic in­stru­ment in the uni­verse.

We’ve got head-to-heads be­tween some of the big­gest and best gui­tarists in metal dis­cussing their own jour­neys and what it means to be a gui­tar hero in 2018. We’ve got world-ex­clu­sive, brand new in­ter­views with the likes of Kirk Ham­mett, Daron Malakian,

Tony Iommi, Steve Vai, Nita Strauss and more. We’ve got Slayer leg­end

Dave Lom­bardo pay­ing an emo­tional trib­ute to the ge­nius of Jeff Han­ne­man. And we even got a whole ton of to­day’s most prom­i­nent play­ers to put to­gether their de­fin­i­tive list of the 50 great­est riffs ever. It’s all in the name of rais­ing a fist and a plec­trum in salute to the big­gest cor­ner­stone of heavy mu­sic, and whether you’re a sea­soned shred­der or sim­ply love a good solo, we hope you en­joy it.

oh, and a spe­cial shout out to ev­ery­one who came and par­tied with us at the Golden Gods this month.

Swing by next is­sue for an ex­tended look inside the big­gest party of the sum­mer. our hang­overs are

still hum­ming…
