End of the Line by Overkill
Pretty much any Megadeth song, but I'll go with an obvious one: Peace Sells but who's buying (I've never heard someone say that bass intro wasnt cool)
Blackened by Metallica (Truly the most underrated Metallica song, especially on AJFA, its alot better than One)
Never Die by Creed (Don't kill me, but it's to most heavy non-metal song I've heard so far)
ANYTHING by Mors Principium Est, I find them ALOT heavier than both Kalmah and Wintersun

I say any songs that are heavy with a great groove is heavy in my books.

The ending riff of Machine Head's Davidian is heavy as hell.

Another heavy ass song is Sevendust - Inside

Also, Metallica - Ride the Lightning, the bass is so heavy in that song

Megadeth- Sweating Bullets. the riff after the riff after the solo where dave has a voiceover w/delay part.

Deicide- Once Upon the Cross

You don't need drastic tunings to be heavy

Beer Is Good - Physcostick

anyone heard it?

of course I've heard this. its just called 'Beer' though. That album is so awesome.

anyway, the heaviest riff I've ever heard is probably Obzen by Meshuggah. You don't really hear much of anything tuned lower than that.
others are:
The Heaviest Matter of the Universe - Gojira
What May Be Safely Written - Nile
Samael the Destroyer - Oceano
Prostatic Fluid Asphyxiation (or) Alone in the Morgue (or) Exalt - Whitechapel

lengthy but whatever, its worth it
I know it's been said, but that end part in Battery is always awesome.
Nope, no sig here.
The intro to everything went black by the black dahlia murder comes to mind. That and halo by machine head, and one by one by immortal

If I wanted to listen to something slow, I'd play some hippie music.
Every song on Rage Against The Machine's debut album... It's just concentrated anger...
Either All Consuming Fire by War of Ages or Fartgina by Sexhavin.

Also, maybe Hacksaw Circumcision by Sexhavin


Play until she breaks up with you.

The most brutal band to ever exist is...

You should go like them...even if you don't like them.

I'd say Fear Factory is the heaviest band. They've got Dino Cazares and Gene Hoglan.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
How low can you tune your guitar? That is the question.

The heaviest riff ever to me atleast, is "Funeralopolis" by Electric Wizaed. But heavy is relative.

The second i saw this thread that was the very first riff that instantly came in my head you nailed it

omgz like totallyz tearz dnnt fall by b4mv, soo br00tz

She's so pretty in her casts
The prettiest thing I've ever seen
I only get to hold her when she's injured
I only get to kiss her where she's sore
The Heaviest Matter of the Universe by Gojira (I mean come on...Heavy is in the title of the song haha)
Quote by Genesis415

If that's the case, than SYL's first is the heaviest. It's got heavy twice in the title, and Gene Hoglan playing drums. He's like the heaviest drummer ever! He's like 784lbs!

In all seriousness though, pretty much any song by any quality funeral or drone doom band is heavier than anything that has been mentioned in this thread thus far, be it Skepticism, Thergothon, Nortt, Wormphlegm, Boris, Earth, Khanate, Sunn O))), etc.

Pssh. Low tuning doesn't make something heavy. Groove and tonality do. I've heard some tremendously heavy stuff in E standard. A specific moment that comes to mind, I'm thinking the last two minutes of A New Aurora are some of the heaviest, most unrelenting moments I've ever heard.
I'm 50 years old and been playing the bass for 35 of them. The heavy of all time heavy song and riff is from Black Sabbath and the song is (Zero the Hero) !!!!!! Man is song is so heavy and deep.

and probably my favorite dark and heavy riffs
Nevermore - Next In Line
