This isn't really a classic metal song, but the solo in Therion's song "Gothic Kabbalah" is incredible. Literally almost every time I play the track I rewind it and listen to the solo once or twice, and I've played that track a lot.

Over The Mountain and Flying High Again/ Ozzy. Hail Randy!
You've Got Another Thing Comin'/the Mighty Priest! Tipton!
Tooth &Nail/Dokken. Lynch was an incredible shredder,no matter what you felt about the band.

Yes sir obscurred,Tipton and Downing,the friggen template for the twin axe attack that defined metal throughout the '80's. Saw them back in Nov.,kicked azz,but wished KK was there. The new guy did well,but Tipton/ Downing were such an influence on alot of bands we listen to nowadays. Kerry King? He bows to them!
