Outro of floods is one of greatest guitar riffs ever dimebag really nailed it

I agree, Deathy. That's one great musical moment. 

I would also nominate: 

The main/opening riff in Katatonia's 'For My Demons' .

The quiet bridge in My Dying Bride's 'Edenbeast' with the vocal "It's my fear that brings me down..."

The main riff in My Dying Bride's 'Sear Me III'

The main riff in Mayhem's 'Freezing Moon'.

The main hook in Satyricon's 'Mother North'.

The opening/main riff in Rapture's 'Misery 24/7'. 

The riff that comes in at 1:17 in Paradise Lost's 'Beneath Broken Earth' (where that harmony guitar comes in).

Intro or Chorus from Lunatic of Gods Creation (Deicide), the riff(s) that first got me into death metal.

Raining Blood (Slayer), Iron Man (Black Sabbath), Ace of Spades (Motörhead) how has no-one said any of these already?

The verse riff from La Vie Est Prélude... (La Mort Orgasme) (Gorguts).

A lot of riffs on Rust in Peace (Megadeth) such as the Tornado of Souls intro, the Hanger 18 sweeped riff and solo breahup riff, the Poison was the Cure main guitar riff and the Rust in Peace...Polaris verse riff alongside the Holy Wars... The Punishment Due riff @Requiem mentioned.      

Also the Peace Sells bassline/outro riff.

The Haunting (Testament) main riff.

I am a Viking intro riff (Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force) .

Also, althoughit doesn't have the "classic" status of all of the others here, I really like the verse riff from Ending (Psycroptic).

^ I'm giving you a 'like' for mentioning me in your post... 

My name in posts. Now that's a 'riff' none of us could grow tired of.

Some old-school 'riffs' would be: 
Black Sabbath - 'Black Sabbath' 
Iron Maiden - 'Aces High'
Metallica - 'Master of Puppets'
Megadeth - 'Holy Wars' when it changes into the last part which I guess they called 'The Punishment Due'. 
 


Yes. I’ll see your list and raise you mine:

Sabbath - Heaven & Hell
Maiden - The Trooper
Metallica - Creeping Death (possibly THE best riff here imo)
Megadeth - Angry Again

Ah yes well played sir. I’m on the mobile so the “horns up” is replaced with the “like”.

 

I’m on my phone right now and it still shows horns. You need to retire crap-a-talk and just use the main site. It’s really good. Your phone is tiny however, but even so...

"The Somberlain" and "Where Dead Angels Lie" by Dissection both have amazing riffs throughout.

3rded. The riff in 'The Somberlain' where Jon sings "I flew over crystal ground, my existence numb..." is one of my all time favourite metal moments. And yes, the main riff in 'Where Dead Angels Lie' is an eternal masterpiece.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

      3/5
