i am talking about this riff:
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
F|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10---------|
G|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10---------|
C|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10---------|

it can also be played this way:
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
F|------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------------|
C|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------------|
G|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------|
C|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------------------------------------------------------|

this riff is in every second metal or metalcore song i listen to, except for really heavy metal genre's. i was wondering if anybody else has noticed this? and what are your thoughts on it?

It's just a chord progression...
Oppression, quiet and Repressed
Swept under the seams
the bed of the acquiesced
where we sleep, insomniac dreams

Never used it myself, even when I use dropped tunings.

Actually, that's a lie, but I'd only hold the chord for 2 or 3 beats then move it on.

I wouldnt be surprised if the first thing Varg did was sign up for WoW so he could kick some Judeo-Christian ass.

I think he's talking about songs that bombard you with that same thing, over and over again. I feel his pain. But then, I don't listen to metalcore at all, so I can't say much about this.

I am so, so sick of bands playing the root note chugged in some kind of 3+3+2 or 3+3+3+3+4 rhythm. Like when they go 'CHUGCHUGCHUGCHUGCHUG CHUGCHUGCHUGCHUGCHUG CHUG CHUG' or 'chuggachuggachuggachuggachug chuggachuggachuggachuggachug chuggachuggachuggachugga' or something like that.

Except when Iced Earth do it. They're awesome.
