    Death - Spiritual Healing
    Verse riff is pretty massive, but the main chorus riff (3.04) is gargantuan.

    Within the Mind is pretty solid, the intro riff actually sounds a lot like a Metallica riff.

    If you're a guy who pays more attention to the bass than anything, I'm gonna go with the entire Cosmogenesis album by Obscura.
