Yngwie Malmsteen

Modern hard-rock acts such as Animals As Leaders may be carrying the torch for shred guitar, but no man has carried it longer and prouder than Swedish master Yngwie Malmsteen. Since the release of his landmark 1984 solo debut, Rising Force, Malmsteen has specialized in the type of over-the-top neoclassical guitar work that makes nerds at Musicians Institute obsess over tablatures until the flesh of their fingers is decimated. As hired-hand vocalists including Jeff Scott Soto and Ripper Owens came and went throughout the years, lyrics remained window dressing for the Swede's turbocharged outbursts of guitar madness. Malmsteen once famously shouted, "You've unleashed the fucking fury!" during a moment of drunken air travel. That fury is still forcefully communicated through his guitar work to this day.
