Revocation’s David Davidson topped the list of today’s top 25 modern metal guitarists, according to website MetalSucks.

The site conducted a staff survey, and “after an incredible amount of arguing, name calling, and physical violence,concluded that Davidson should be crowned as the top modern metal guitarist. This was no small feat, as the Boston-based shredder beat out guitarists such as Dream Theater’s John Petrucci and Testament’s Alex Skolnick. Runners-up included Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders), Brent Hinds (Mastodon) and Fredrik Thordenal (Meshuggah).

See for yourself how Davidson masterfully rips through his Jackson Warrior fretboard, nearly setting it on fire with record speed and polyrhythms …
