Rockin’ riffs, which will you pick?

Last week Destruction took home the pretzel for our German Edition.

For this week’s competition we asked for riffs from songs featuring a reference to a stone/rock/gem in their title. Don’t forget to use the PROMO CODE SPAKFILL to get your free sample pot of Walbert’s new and improved formula Tooth-Gap Grout©, first 12 callers get a free maxi-size applicating trowel.


Hans
Fragments of Unbecoming – ‘Memorial Stone’ (Riff @ 2:08)

Check out the first few albums from these guys if you’ve never heard of them. Pretty cool melodic death, which I’m not usually into. This, their latest, is not my favourite, but still offers some decent bangers. Case in point: this song when it speeds up.


GoatForest
Funeral Mist – ‘Bread to Stone’ (Riff @ 0:48)

This baby is is a great example of when black metal gets it right. It is absolutely seething with violence and malice.


Positronic Brain
S.O.D. – ‘Diamonds and Rust (Extended Version)’

If you have time, you should listen to the whole song.


God
The Red Chord – ‘Mouthful Of Precious Stones’ (Riff @ 0:00)

Probably one of the best, head banging-ist riffs from one of the few deathcore bands worth giving a shit about. The riffage starts at 0:00 and is sprinkled all throughout this absolute killer track. If any of you were lucky enough to see them YEARS back during Summer Slaughter and hear them play this you know exactly what I’m talking about.


Nukenado
Bolt Thrower – ‘Granite Wall’ (Riff @ 0:14)

Lead riff, 0:14-0:28. Screen-Name (That’s my discus name, right?): Nukenado.


EggBeater
Cephalic Carnage – ‘Repangaea’ (Riff @ 10:15)

I could’ve easily chosen the smooth, sexy saxophone intro, or the main riff you wait for that lasts from around 7:50 to around 8:40. Hell, I could’ve even picked the beautiful, heart-broken piano “bridge”. However, the riff at 10:15 is the one that you really wait for. You just don’t know it until it hits. Can we have a Song Ov The Month? Sometimes, you just need the whole thing, man. Fuck Dwayne “The Rock Johnson”, Pangaea is the biggest rock of them all.


Taz
Stratovarius – ‘Black Diamond’ (Riff @ 0:25)

RIFF START AT 0.25 AND MAKE TAZ CHUG ALONG!! NUFF SAID!!!!


DeathToFalseMetal
Mantar – ‘Into The Golden Abyss’ (Riff @ 0:15)

Gold counts right? Of course it does. This german duo sure knows what they’re doing. Riff starts at 0:15 and man, is it a fucking banger. Enough said.


Lacertilian
Sinmara – ‘Ivory Stone’ (Riff @ 3:19)

This stand-alone track from their split with Misþyrming released earlier this year could be their most chaotic yet, however it’s when the cacophony subsides around the 3:19 mark that the song’s incisors are bared. Get bit.

    RIP Malcolm young 🙁

  • GoatForest

    Hans gets my vote, but DeathToFalseMetal is definitely runner up.

    • more beer

      I saw those guys a couple of times last year and they were ridiculously good.

      • GoatForest

        Man, I just realized I haven’t seen a show all year. I almost travelled to Fort Worth to see Shining and Revenge, but I couldn’t get off work. I’m kinda glad I didn’t, considering all the shit Kvarforth pulled on that tour.

        • more beer

          The year is almost over and I know you live in a place with not a lot of shows, but you should remedy that! Revenge alone would have been worth the trip. But hey you gotta work, you can’t feed your family without money.

  • BobLoblaw
    • GrumpDumpus

      HOLY FUCK I ALREADY LOVED WESLEY WILLIS FOR KICKING SPIDER MANS ASS BUT THIS GIVES HIM ANOTHER 250 COOL POINTS

      • BobLoblaw

        There is a Morbid Angel one as well.

    • GrumpDumpus

      “BOLT THROWER CAN REALLY KNOCK IT OUT”

  • tigeraid

    Granite Wall is my favourite Bolt Thrower tune, so it simply wins.

  • Howard Dean

    That Funeral Mist riff is lights out. Well done, Forest o’ Goats.

    I love Bolt Thrower, but honestly I’m kinda sick of seeing them here.

    • GoatForest

      Yeah, Bolt Thrower does pop up a lot.

    • GrumpDumpus

      THAT’S LIKE BEING SICK OF PIZZA THERE IS NEVER NOT A TIME WHEN THAT IS 200% DELICIOUS

  • Eliza

    I’m unsure whether the S.O.D. track is the best or the worst pick here, but I want to believe it’s both.

    • Brutalist_Receptacle

      Sodom: Me.

      ; )

  • Brutalist_Receptacle

    I was fortunate enough to see AC/DC live on the Powerage, If You Want Blood, Highway to Hell, Back in Black tours.

    The world is a dark place, with no hope.
    Malcolm is in a better place today.

  • Depechemodeisgangsta

    “Fuck Dwayne “The Rock Johnson”, Pangaea is the biggest rock of them all.”
    That right there convince me to vote for it lol.
    Sad about Malcolm Young, i had one chance to go see them live but i passed on it, then they came with Axl and i wasn’t interested since i had ticket for next GNR show in a couple of months later.
    ACDC is one of those bands that is kind of like Cannibal Corpse, you know what you’re going to get and is not going to stray far away from what they do and is still OK with almost everyone.

    • Brutalist_Receptacle

      That is like one of their worst songs.

  • GrumpDumpus

    MY BEST PERFORMING RIFF SUBMISSION OF ALL TIME WAS A SHOPPING CART

  • Óðinn
  • If another fucking Bolt Thrower riff wins I am going to do something drastic and only partially reversible.

    • GrumpDumpus

      WARMASTER FACE TATTOO

  • Óðinn
  • Count_Breznak
  • Óðinn
  • Nukenado

    Shit, guys, I’m new here so I didn’t know about the “too much Bolt Thrower” issue 🙁

    • Howard Dean

      YEAH, WHAT THE FUCK, ASSHOLE?!

      Nah, no worries. Bolt Thrower is easily a top 5 death metal band for me and few bands can riff like them. I said that only because they’ve shown up a lot in RotW recently. Hell, I think I was the first person to submit a Bolt Thrower riff back in the day (World Eater), so definitely no hate for the band. But I could see them getting banned from this contest like Iron Maiden.

      • Nukenado

        Hmm, in hindsight, it makes sense.
        Bolt Thrower made its name on riffs.

      • more beer

        There aren’t enough upvotes, for tits and pizza! Any guy who disagrees, needs to turn their dick over to the proper authorities!

      • GrumpDumpus

        THEY SHOULD DEFINITELY BE BAND FROM THE CONTEST

  • Nukenado

    Also, Sinmara’s pretty cool.

  • There’s a lolbuttzload of great riffs here today!

  • Feels strange to be passing The Red Chord up for something else… That song really pulls at my heartstrings though. When the album came out, I was living alone and struggling with some issues of loneliness coupled with the headfuckery that comes with taking Ambien for insomnia. Amazing how music can transport you back in time so vividly.

    • Sempak_Berdarah

      dank i can relate dat, u good now brah?

      • indeed, thanks for asking! i had to learn one of those early life lessons: surround myself with more people.

        • Sempak_Berdarah

          dank brah i am still struggling with dat shit
          this fvckery in my head was like fvck
          it’s a fvcking nightmare
          how can u brave that storm?

          • as a teenager i had social anxiety, and i wanted to fix it really badly. so i saw an expert, got help, and learned how to deal with social situations. now i’m quite extroverted.

          • Sempak_Berdarah

            my anxiety just came recently i was not this shit before, i am playing with wrong shit brah

          • sorry to hear about that. i took meds for it 20 years ago, and i dug ’em.

          • Sempak_Berdarah

            I am afraid I will fall for the meds too
            I feel cold in my chest and my hand start to trembling for past few day this week. but it doesn’t come since yesterday. I will put the bad shit for a moment
