Polyphia’s latest recent album, Remember That You Will Die, was celebrated for two reasons. One, it featured yet more of Tim Henson and Scott LePage’s boundary-pushing progressive electric guitar playing, and two, it called upon a range of high-profile guest musicians.

Key among the crew’s collaborators were Chino Moreno and Steve Vai, with the latter joining forces with Henson and co for one the best guitar tracks of the year, Ego Death. In fact, it gained so much traction, it was voted by you as having the best guitar solo of 2022.
