We have previously written about top 20 singers, guitarists, bass players and keyboard players in progressive metal and its related subgenres, but with this post we want to highlight some of the greatest songwriters in the genre. It has to be underlined that most of these names wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for their bandmates and/or musicians they collaborated with.
Feel free to leave the comment with your favorites.
Between the Buried and Me is definitely one of those bands where creative chemistry between the band members absolutely breaks all possible scales. Guitarist Paul Waggoner is a lucky dude to be surrounded with great instrumentalists such Dan Briggs, Blake Richardson, Tommy Rogers and Dusty Waring, and in the eight releases the band put out to date Waggoner crafted some quite awesome guitar work, placing their music on a whole new level creatively.
