I always love good guitar riffs and my music taste has largely followed good riffing over the years. There are probably a ton of songs, bands, and esp. riffs that I've missed. I'm not much of a black metal fan, but any death metal and death metal subgenre goes, as well as thrash or heavier forms of metal that might fit. I'm NOT looking for rock, hard rock, etc. Black Sabbath: ok. Motley Crue: SO NOT OK. If it's close to the topic: great. DRI could fit, but as you can see from my list I'm mostly looking for Death Metal stuff, maybe some Thrash sprinkled in.

Which riffs stand out for you?

Riffs of note for me in recent years:

Deivos - Absolute of Hatred (especially 1:37 on)

Soreption - Suppressing the Mute (:20 on)

Decapitated - Spheres of Madness, The Eye of Horus, Organic Hallucinosis, ...

Abysmal Torment - Gospel of Maggots, Supreme Tyrant in Putrescence

Hail Of Bullets - Ordered Eastward (opening riffs/main), Strategy Of Attrition (opening/main riff), Red Wolves of Stalin (outro riff especially), Operation Z (2:18-) , Inferno at the Carpathian Mountains (2:20-).

Abysmal Dawn - My Own Savior (opening riff is good but I'm talking especially the second main riff at 0:29 - amazing!)

Severe Torture - Repeat Offender (beginning with opening riff, most of song)

Asphyx - Deathhammer

Blood Red Throne - The Light, The Hate

Abysmal Dawn - In Service of Time (opening riff/main riff)

Severe Torture - Serenity Torn Asunder (chords at 1:34 and several other riffs)

Krisiun - Blood of Lions (so simple but sounds so good for so long...an amazing trick to accomplish), The Great Execution (riff at 2:24-2:45 is bad as hell!)

Vengeful - Visions (opening riff)

Opeth - Blackwater Park (epic acoustic lead-in through main riff starts at 1:47)

Damageplan - Blunt Force Trauma

----------------

Older riffs of note (I may edit this older list more as I procure things from memory):

Destruction - The Ritual (main riff), Curse the Gods, ...
Slayer - Angel Of Death (riff at 1:39), Mandatory Suicide, Spill the Blood, ...
Sepultura - Dead Embryonic Cells (esp. 1:24)
Coroner - Reborn through Hate
Testament - Souls of Black
Metallica - Blackened, Battery, ...
Pantera - Regular People (Conceit), Cowboys from Hell, ...
Onslaught - Let there be Death

Fair enough, I suppose but melodies, heavy metal examples, etc. isn't the same as what I'm looking for, and also that thread is from 2009...

Most people have wrote riffs there, even me

It's still the same Idea, but we'll see what a mode says.
