What are some of your absolute favorite riffs? Any genre works, except -core because there are no riffs. Even Lil' Wayne's pathetic attempt at rap-rock has riffs, which is sad


This is just full of awesome riffs, but the chorus riffing is some of the best in my eyes. Also, i love the end acoustic "riff"


Some say (taxer) that tech death doesnt have good riffs, but the verse riff in this track is fucking awesome.


Same with the so-called norsecore, but this track has awesome riffs throughout, even in their simplicity. One of my favorite songs to play, it's just fun


Kinda an obvious choice, but the "breakdown" section at the end still gives me chills.


Again, full of amazing riffs, but the chorus riff is just awesome.


Fuck you if you don't like this.

These are just a few off the top of my head.

I still mantain to this day that Dimebag is overrated, however everyone can have a few moments of genius.



Best riff Petrucci ever wrote... it's like Sabbath, but not shit.



No explanation should be required.



Fuck the haters.

As I Am has great fucking riffs, I agree. Probably the best thing he ever came up with. Tyrants is badass too, but it's to be expected from Immortal. They just go to show that insane musical vocabulary and mastery of theory aren't the only contributing factors to awesome music.

At The Drive In.... it was interesting. Pretty cool riff actually, but really not my thing. Pantera... meh. Cemetary Gates is good and all, but I actually think Walk is much more memorable. Even in it's simplicity.

for some reason i just love the thing at 2:05. it grooves



more 3, because i like them and im pretty sure no one here knows them. plus this song grooves also. i love this band. not metal btw






i fucking love the intro riff.




the guitar riff is pretty sweet if anyone ever noticed.



in anticipation for the new album. and i think the riff has tons of energy and is just awesome anyway

That intro riff. If you don't love it, give up on metal.



The verse is simple as anything but there's just something about it that makes it incredible.



The main riff is amazing enough when it starts out, but when they harmonise it towards the end it turns into something absolutely beautiful.



Not any specific riff in this song. Just fucking all of them.

I'm gonna break away from the metal for a bit....



Fuck the haters.

Black Metal




Fucking groovy as shit. So is the one that follows it.



Pretty hard to choose only one Blasphemophagher riff because they're just full of them but this one will have to do.



Fucking intro riff is awesome as hell, plus dat cowbell.



Yup another Darkthrone song. Intro riff is pretty much the perfect black metal tremolo riff.



What, Taxer likes a fun and bouncy riff? Yes.



Opening riff and subsequent riff are 100% amazing



Fuuuuuuuuuuck.



Intro riff slays.



If you're a false don't entry because you'll be burned and died.



Von only needs 1 riff per song and they're still better than most bands


Death Metal



Doo doo dooodoo doodle doo



Yeeeeeeeeeeeeees.



Asphyx gonna Asphyx



Kingdom fucking gone



Dem Bolt Thrower riffs



You should all know this one and it ought to be one of your favorite riffs as well



Demo version sounds a lot better but the song is just full of awesome and memorable riffs



Oh Deicide, what happened to you? Another song filled with awesome riffs.



IN DARKNESS!



The entire album is filled with my favorite riffs



lol slamz



Crushing riffs with crushing production? Count me in.



Intro riff used to be hands down my favorite riff



Tech death done right



Intro riff and breakdown at 2:50 are rifftastic



Intro riff is one of the most evil riffs of all time



Amazing intro riff, amazing breakdown at 1:15



Not going to even bother posting every riff off of AoM because they're all awesome



Same applies to BatS



...and Covenant



CHOPPEN HAAAAAAAAAAAUGH!



Intro riff and follow-up riff are riffalicious



Creepiest riff in existence imo



Suffo has got dem riffs



Talk about a climax



I don't think this band has ever written a boring riff



You asked for riffs? Here, have some riffs.



Dat Winterwolf



I got tired, I'll post more later

That was a rifftastic post, and some great ones indeed. I'll be poking through the ones I'm not too familiar with. Couldn't agree more with the Altars of Madness comment

Inquisition was absolutely fantastic. Even if they rip off Immortal, it is still a great rip off

I don't think Inquisition rips off Immortal... they jus better kekeke

And as for Riffs I been listening to a lot of Anaal Nathrakh lately, methinks they has good riff. Or jus uber catchy.
