Eh, I'll give the obligatory "Raining Blood". It's one damn fun riff though.

Blinded By Fear - At the Gates
Riders Of the Plague - The Absence
Masters Apprentice - Opeth (Sounds amazingly heavy and dark, yet its in standard tuning)

In my opinion.

The riff in Lamb of God's "Blood of the Scribe", that plays at about 1:40, over which is sung, "Cut to the bone / rob the grave / unearth the stone / laid to waste". Either that or the beginning riff to "Laid to Rest". I just find Lamb of God's stuff to be the most fun to play.

I love the breakdown riff in "What Doesn't Die" by Anthrax. It's just pure powerchord bashing but it's class.

Quote by SForbz-Rockstar
What I'm getting at is the riff is a note for note rip off of Testament's Into the Pit. Click the link I posted earlier.


It's like, 3 notes dude. It's not like it hasn't happened before.

I clicked the link the rhythm is similar and there is a slight similarity but I would hardly call plagarism on it.

Favorite riffs are any riff from Holy Wars - Megadeth
Master of Puppets - Metallica (riff before the solo, verse riff, crawling riff)
Wake Up Dead- Megadeth (the one in the second verse I think)
The Trooper - Iron Maiden (intro riff)
The Four Horsemen - Metallica (I can't remember when it is... I remember it being amazing...)
