Acoustic guitar shredding?

What are some albums that feature fast and virtuosic acoustic guitar playing/shredding? For example, I really like a lot of the Candyrat guitarists (Ewan Dobson, Gareth Pearson), and most recently I really enjoyed Paul Gilbert's Acoustic Samurai album. I also know that Van Halen and Yngwie Malmsteen have done some acoustic shredding. Any really good ones you could recommend?

Rock/metal pieces with multiple simultaneous soloists?

I'm fascinated by the double guitar solo in DragonForce's "Through the Fire and Flames". (Video, 3:20 mark.) What are some other rock/metal pieces that successfully pull off multiple simultaneous soloists?

Fugal writing in popular music?

Do any popular musicians (as opposed to art music composers) use fugal writing in their music? I'm looking for hardcore, Well-Tempered Clavier complexity, not simple 2-voice counterpoint.
