Okay, I have been on a big Scar Symmetry binge lately. I love what this band has done. They are both metal, and marketable. They are both simple to listen too, and incredibly musically interesting. This combination is rare in metal bands.
The solo phrasing is unique and incredible. Most metal solos (mine included) can't really even be considered as phrased compared to scar solos.
So here are some of my favorites:

Oh my god. I just have one question: how did I not get into these guys sooner? I should be ashamed of myself.
