If Michael Angelo Batio is an old god's god, Ichika Nito is a new god's god. Delicate, highly dexterous mix of techniques at ultra high speeds. Legend says the word beautiful was coined to describe his music.
Polyphia's Tim Henson begins where Tosin Abassi stops. Tim Henson redefines how notes are chosen in music, how techniques combine, but all of it is softer than AAL.
He is an epic 8 finger tapper with fluid notes and wide arpeggios with romantic and dark exotic themes. His dexterity allows sequences that others only dream of.
Marcin does shred, tap, and percussion on an acoustic guitar at levels never seen before. He is fast, complex, and level 9000 overkill. But that's the beauty.
A Bassist who outplays everyone else with his left and right hand tapping simultaneously, does bass and lead at the same time. He is the best offshoot of neoclassical guitar today.
Probably the first "new god" of shred guitar. Ultra complex clean thumping with fast notes. He cooked a genre called "animals as leaders."
Jason is a heavy slow riff and ultra fast shred style guitarist. It's an emotion in itself. It's a vibe we feel, but never got to hear before with that intensity.
The ultimate Tapper, who plays 2 guitar necks simultaneously on his custom guitar. He is percussive with his notes with mad chordal melodies.
