Pandemic of riffs

A list of my favourite and highly contagious riffs.. Because why not I gotta be at home and I'm bored af. Some of these are included not only because of the riff itself but some other elements that may be adding to it
1Isis
Oceanic


False Light [00:49] - easily my all time favourite riff, its heavy, like being punched in the face type of heavy. the drumming adds up to it
2Callisto
True Nature Unfolds


Masonic [01:06] - this one always seemed similar to the one in False Light while also being its own thing, the set up is slightly better, imo
3Gaza
No Absolutes in Human Suffering


The Crown [00:00] - What I would describe as controlled chaos
4Mouth Of The Architect
Quietly


A Beautiful Corpse [00:00] - one of the best examples of a band being naturally heavy without relying on fast tempos
5 Blindead
Affliction XXIX II MXMVI


My new playground became [05:10] - cathartic ending, this goes hard
6The Mire
Glass Cathedrals


Triple Gemini [00:00] - This album on its own has a lot of sludgy riffs, this one's a treat tho and hands down my favourite song ever recorded by this band (RIP)
7Bossk
.1


I [05:08] - This track has smooth ambience for a solid 3 or so minutes and then they just bombard you with insanity
8Follow The White Rabbit
Endorphinia


Few Stories Of A Deserted Forest [02:10] - So, these guys have an odd experimental vibe that may turn some people off but this moment in particular is pure audio porn
9Burst
Lazarus Bird


(We Watched) The Silver Rain [04:00] - Yea, there's a buildup to this riff and the follow up is insanely good but I'm still gonna mention it because it stands out
10Twelve Tribes
Midwest Pandemic


Pagan Self Portrait [03:09] - This hits near the end and its just delicious
11Advent
Naked and Cold


Nothing [00:00] - this one's for the rawrs
12The Chariot
One Wing


Not [00:34] - One of the most chaotic riffs, there's plenty to choose from in this track. This band was the zone
13Training for Utopia
Plastic Soul Impalement


A Good Feeling [00:52] - This is what hate sounds like
14Be'lakor
Stone's Reach


From Scythe to Sceptre [01:40]
15Cult of Luna
The Beyond


Arrival [02:29]
16Neurosis
Through Silver in Blood


Purify [06:49]
17Omega Massif
Geisterstadt


Unter Null [00:24]
18The Ocean Collective
Fluxion


the Human Stain [07:27]
19Botch
An Anthology of Dead Ends


Vietmam [00:00]
20Counterparts
Prophets


A Plea: A Promise [00:26]
21Converge
Jane Doe


Hell to Pay [03:21]
22Cult Leader
A Patient Man


I Am Healed [00:13] - From an album that was so heavily criticised for having.. variety I guess, you still can't deny that the opening track is goddamn shockwave
23The Secret
Luce


Close To Me, Inside My Heart [00:27] -
24Poison the Well
You Come Before You


Crystal Lake [00:27] - this song is fully appreciated when listening to the entire album, the pacing of the track-list is so perfect that it only makes the closure that much more satisfying. Oh the riff? It's awesome, get on that shit
25Amia Venera Landscape
The Long Procession


My Hands Will Burn First [00:00] - Man this riff is just brilliant and again I gotta mention the pacing of the album itself that adds up to it. This riff is reused on Nicholas, in a slightly darker tone, I guess? It's details like this that made TLP such a rewarding album to listen to while having individual moments standing out, this riff is my top pick
