Five Finger Death Punch’s Zoltan Bathory reveals 10 guitarists who changed his life


Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory in a recent interview with Metal Hammer revealed the 10 guitarists who inspired him.

Bathory said: “I’m a rhythm player who plays with a baritone guitar; those things aren’t really made for shredding. You can tow ships with my strings! You’d lose a finger if you tried to shred too much, so my choices mostly aren’t your usual guitar gods.”

Zoltan Bathory’s favorite guitarists are:

  1. Dave Murray (Iron Maiden)
  2. Wolf Hoffmann (Accept)
  3. Scott Ian (Anthrax)
  4. James Hetfield (Metallica)
  5. Dimebag Darrel (Pantera)
  6. Yngwie Malmsteen
  7. Vinnie Moore
  8. Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne/Black Label Society)
  9. Randy Piper (W.A.S.P.)
  10. Logan Mader (Machine Head, Soulfly, Once Human)
