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!!!!

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.
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

This Mortal Coil-:33. Like a more brutal and badass Maiden (if that's even
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
A Diamond for Disease

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

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
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


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

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

One of Fail-Opening riff
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.
