Most epic/badass riffs

What are some of your favorite riffs of all times?

A Call to Arms by Exodus is just amazing.

Cemetary Gates by Pantera.

Pantera is not even my favourite band, but that is by the the most bad ass riff I have ever heard.

I'm not trolling with this, but The Thing That Should Not Be by Metallica is one of my favourite riffs.

In Death's Sleep by Dismember. I love the intro riff on that song.

That's more of a lead than a riff. But if you'd just said "any ATB riff" I would've agreed.

Fates Warning - Epitaph - 1:54

As much as I love Epicus Doomicus Metallicus, Fates Warning one-upped them in the epic traditional/doom thing with that song, and in particular, riff. Epic does not get more epic than Epitaph.
