    I was reading total guitar recently and it gave the top 100 riffs of all time and 4 of the top 5 were metal riffs!

    Whats your top 5 riffs?

    -Raining Blood
    -Master Of Puppets
    -I'm broken
    -Hammer Smashed Face
    -The Trooper

    Whats your say?

    I hardly like any of those riffs. I couldnt answer the question, there are too many, and I cant think right now. Too much Huey Lewis.

    +1

    I have quite a few favourites mainly intro riffs such as the intro to CoB - Towards Dead End or the intro to Wintersun - Beyond the Dark sun. I have many more but can't be arsed to think right now.

    I hate all of those top things that magazines do, because all it turns into is a list of 100 mainstream things. As if music in the mainstream doesn't get enough recognition as it is.

    this thread isn't worth the brain-power to scrutinize and narrow down to exactly five.

    Ablaze My Sorrow - I Will Be Your God
    Carcass - Blood-Spattered Banner
    Carpathian Forest - Return Of The Freezing Winds
    Eternal Tears of Sorrow - Scars Of Wisdom
    Hypocrisy - Let The Knife Do The Talking
    Hypocrisy - Roswell 47
    Kreator - Winter Martyrium
    Samael - Rebellion
