    Anyone recommend me the most creative riff you know, and/or riffs that you are proud of :worship: I'm looking for a good banging-of-the-head syndrome that lasts for at least a month. :)

    Yes. Something innovative, not ripped off or watered down.
    Thanks for the bands, post more please :)

    Honestly a lot of Dream Theater's riffs on Images and Words were very innovative at the time. I'll go with them for now.

    @ HamburgerBoy - nice choice from Voivod. Their unique tuning makes a lot of their riffs quite different from the norm though.

    Im sure stuff like this will work:

    Asphyx - The Krusher


    Entombed - Sinners Bleed


    Gorod - Thirst For Power


    Gorguts - Nostalgia


    Judas Priest - Electric Eye


    Manilla Road - Hammer of the Witches


    Immolation - Sinful Nature

    Creative and creative....i dont know if it can be mentioned as the most creative riff. But i feel this song and main riff has the core essence of metal. Its a song i just gotta hear from time to time and cant get tired of hearing it. Might not be what you asked for but to hell with it. Listen to it anyway.

    oh these work all right. some creative fapping i must say.
    genre preference? umm, some death that's not too death-y, it's hard to put in words.
    something like this


    and


    yeah, something in between or along those lines.
    thanks for the bands/songs btw, i apologize for the late reply :p

    Gorguts easily fits into this category. See Obscura and From Wisdom to Hate. I haven't listened to their latest yet so I can't comment on it (I think it's not officially out actually)

    As already mentioned, the last two Gorguts albums are a must ... and so is their new one.

    Really depends on how you look at it. Black Sabbath had the most creative riffs in metal at one point.

    Black Sabbath
    War Pigs
    Paranoid

    simple riffs, but nothing like them had been heard before.

    Also, Randy Rhoads.
