Poet's Riffs

Been listening to some br00tal riffs today and just felt like listing my rfavorite 20 (basically those that just come off the top of my head) rRAWR!!!!
20Godsmack
Awake


Sick of Life-Opening bass/guitar riff. This is a "huh what?" moment. Yeah the band is generic and writes the same stuff over and over but this is probably their most badass song. The riffs on the entire album are crunchy and heavy....almost too heavy to see the radio play that it did.
19Manowar
Kings of Metal


Hail and Kill-2:00 (chorus riff). Obviously the most metal of riffs.
18Iron Maiden
The Final Frontier


Coming Home-Opening riff. Maiden's had a bunch of fantastic riffs but for some reason the slower pace added with the melody just makes it my favorite.
17Carcass
Heartwork


This Mortal Coil-:33. Like a more brutal and badass Maiden (if that's even possible)
16Moonsorrow
Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maassa


Huuto-newest song on the list has one of the most gorgeous melodies I've ever heard in the beginning and throughout the song
15Arsis
A Diamond for Disease


A Diamond for Disease-OH LET'S MAKE A DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! riff
14Nightwish
Once


Dark Chest of Wonders-1:22. Had to put the riff that got me into this band 6 years ago.
13Judas Priest
Screaming for Vengeance


Electric Eye-Opening riff
12Converge
Petitioning the Empty Sky


Farewell Note to this City-3:21
11Tony Macalpine
Edge of Insanity


The Raven-1:20
10Garden of Shadows
Oracle Moon


Continuum-2:25
9Equilibrium
Rekreatur


In Heiligen Hallen-3:30. Who cares if it's a keyboard.....this is my list and this fucking rules.
8Children of Bodom
Something Wild


The Nail-4:00. Best Bodom song has best Bodom riff
7Amon Amarth
Once Sent From The Golden Hall


Victorious March-1:00. Now I'm serious.....this is DEFINITELY my second favorite riff ever. I want to punch babies and go raid and pillage some helpless fools listening to this.
6Iced Earth
Something Wicked This Way Comes


The Coming Curse-Riff after piano intro. Ok I lied, this is probably my second favorite riff ever.
5In Flames
Whoracle


Jotun-:20. So melodic and so awesome. Just might be my second favorite riff ever.
4Kalmah
12 Gauge


One of Fail-Opening riff
3Metallica
Ride the Lightning


Ride the Lightning-Opening Riff.
2Orphaned Land
The Never Ending Way of ORwarriOR


Barakah-3:21. Album and band are overrated but this riff is amazing
1Edge of Sanity
Crimson II


Face to Face-Opening riff. This section from one of my favorite albums starts off with the greatest 6 second guitar riff ever.
