Top 100 Metal Guitar Solos (non-instrumentals)

So I'm interning at an Austin-based rock column and they're doing a top 100 best guitar solos in metal list. It's been a work in progress pulling from several previously made lists and personal opinions from the writing staff. Was wondering if there were some pretty big ones or lesser known masterpieces we were missing that I could suggest to the editors. Song list is in alphabetical order by song name, not from best to worst or anything. Also most of these aren't my suggestions but I did get a few in there, mostly the Toxik and Death inclusions
