Seriously, I did do a searchbar check.
I'm looking for more songs with huge riffs.
I'm a big fan of Muse's and RATM's riffs, so any like that would be sweet, but other types would be cool too.

Cheers

Daytripper-Beatles I win.
They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

I don't care what people say, but "Forsaken" by As I Lay Dying has an amazing chorus.

You want massive riffs? You want stoner rock/stoner metal/doom baby. My favourite genres.

Check out these songs, or just these bands in general-

Orange Goblin - Scorpionica
Kyuss - Supa Scoopa and Mighty Scoop (one of the greatest riff ever written comes about halfway or so through the song, you'll know when you hear it)
The Sword - Freya

Also look up some Clutch, Fu Manchu, Unida and Brant Bjork.

And seriously, just get the whole of The Sword's 'Age of Winters' album.

Also, outside of the stoner genre, listen to Audioslave (another Tom Morello from RATM band), Soundgarden, Volbeat and Tokyo Dragons.

The end riff to Seabeast by Mastodon will fucking punch you in the face.

Also the riff at 3:08 in Ants of the Sky by Between the Buried and Me.

Also the riff at 2:12 in Beautiful Mourning by Machine Head.

Aside from that, pretty much any Mastodon, BTBAM, August Burns Red, All Shall Perish, or Machine Head song, ever.
My band, Escher
My progressive rock project, Mosaic

Quote by Lappo
clearly, the goal is to convert every thread into a discussion about BTBAM

Any Between the Buried and Me.

When does that one riff end?

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.
