David T Chastain: makes into gibson charts

David T Chastain makes it into Gibson's top 10 players you need to hear

Since his mid-’80s emergence this Atlanta guitarist has been the undisputed god of underground metal. He is a classically influenced player with chops every bit as formidable as Yngwie and Michael Schenker, but more diverse. His 50-odd albums leap from old-school lyric metal to heavy instrumental fusion to improv to southern boogie. Chastain is also the founder of the Leviathan Records label.
