This has got to be a joke…

Ever heard of Asking Alexandria? No, me neither, because like you, I listen to real metal — not whiny, generic ‘girly’ “metal” (metal put in quotation marks, because well, it’s not really metal is it?).

That said, forget Eddie Van Halen, forget Brian May, don’t even think about Dimebag Darrell, and make no mention of Tony Iommi. Why, I hear you ask? Because Alternative Press and their readers have decided instead that Asking Alexandria‘s guitarist, Ben Bruce, is the top guitarist of 2011.

Who needs shredding, creativity and alternating finger tapping, when you can just play open chords, power chords and the odd not-completely-predictable-at-all breakdown, right? If they say he’s the best guitarist, it must be true. Why would they lie?

You can listen to some shitty song by this shitty band above. I mean, only if you really want to.
