Nevermore - This Godless Endeavor (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwDoTkfC_xA&feature=related) After six minutes of a really good song he bursts into this. :drool:

Not the best quality but I think you all know the solo. I especially love the second part.

I really dislike solos for the most part, but these have always stuck out to me:

Deicide - Scars of the Crucifix (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-riI__ZGRX4)
Vital Remains - Dechristianize (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgVeYbOkIoI)

I've always found that Judas Priest is the most consistent band with solos. Dat Painkiller solo = :drool:

Black Sabbath- Heaven & Hell
Black Sabbath- Fairies Wear Boots
Black Sabbath- Symptom of The Universe

Hangar 18 is legendary as well.

Too many to fuckin mention.
90% of Chuck Shculdiner's solos. Say what you will about him selling out Death Metal in his later career, but as a soloist he only got more and more awesome
