Pretty much knew right away that the only two real contenders would be Tipton/Downing and Murray/Smith. All the other pairs range from good to great, but those two are just miles and miles ahead of the others.

I voted Tipton/Downing just because of the fact that those two pretty much pioneered 90% of metal guitar that Tony Iommi didn't already invent. If anything, I've always seen Murray/Smith as a similar team but with more consistent songwriting on Smith's end. Those two definitely didn't improve their technique as much or write nearly as heavy material as Tipton/Downing though.

Edit: Also I think that Sami Yli-Sirnio and Mille Petrozza should totally be considered here. The best Kreator guitar team before those two only lasted for one good album (Petrozza/Blackfire on Coma of Souls). Sami's the best soloist Kreator's ever had and Kreator have been on an amazing hot streak for ten years now. As far as I'm concerned, he is the "classic" Kreator second guitarist.

How's that surprising? Maiden easily have the most fanboys of any band on this site. Always have.

Yeah, I had to think about Tipton & Downing, Hetfield & Hammett or Smith & Murray but in the end voted Tipton & Downing.

I thought Priest would take the lead or at least hang tough. Now they are in the lead but at the time it didn't look too promising for ANYone else.

Indeed. Tipton and Downing is the only answer.

Also, who in the fucking fuck voted for Slipknot? The fact that they are tied with Testament makes my brain hurt.

In fairness, Tipton and Downing are a pretty easy number 2 for me.

A quandry with Priest is that it seems like Tipton takes 70% of the solos rather than an even 50/50 split.

^I also kind of think he's the better of the two at solos. It doesn't feel completely fair.
