RIFFS!

I just started working on some new stuff, going for an 80's thrash, kill em all era type of tone, just stereotypical thrash. Before you judge and everything, I made this up under two hours, pretty stock stuff in my opinion, it was all done pretty sloppy and in the actual recording I will play very clean but I was pretty short on time for this, I just wanted to know what you think of each riff and which ones are keepers and everything, there's cleans in there too!

There's a total of 14 Different Riffs, each one is separated by a crash cymbal being played.

To keep it convenient for you, I've made a template on how good each riff is:
Riff 1
?/10 - (Why you rated it that)

Riff 2
?/10 - (Why you rated it that)

Riff 3
?/10 - (Why you rated it that)

Riff 4
?/10 - (Why you rated it that)

Riff 4

Nice recording quality and pretty good tone, what do you use to record?
riff1: 9.5/10 good
riff2: 8/10 pretty good but you had that same powerchord slide as in riff 1
riff3: 8/10 solid
riff4: 8.5/10 sounds familiar, good
riff5: 7/10 sounds a bit like search and destroy by iggy and the stooges (just a tiny bit), not that keen on the "fill" in the riff though
riff6: 7/10 ok, nothing special
riff7: 7.5/10 pretty stereotypical stuff, allright though
riff8: 7/10 not that keen on the first fill thingy, not bad though
riff9: 8/10 sounds a bit like riff 7, allright
riff10: 8.5/10 sounds kinda familiar again, good
riff11: 7.5/10 sounds a bit weird, but allright i guess
riff12: 6.5/10 not that keen on this one though, sounds a bit too bland
riff13: 7/10 not that keen on this one either the part at 3:49 (actually it was played many times before in the riff too) didn't really fit into it imo.
riff14: 9.5/10 sounds a bit like van halen, solid stuff

Overall, solid riffs, but some were too much like stereotypical thrash and some others were a bit bland. Good job.

Yeah, well mainly I just wanted to use this for one/two songs right, so not every riff can be amazing, some have to be good for singing and stuff, plus yeah a lot of the riffs are supposed to sound similar since they are supposed to fit together, thanks for the comment.
