This week’s competition brought to you by Purple® – “It’s blue and red!”.

Things got hot last week for our Fire Edition of Riff Of The Week. Howard Dean went with a classic Bathory cut and so did 18% of you. Just glad that [REDACTED] riff I mentioned last week did not win, otherwise there would have been no choice but to burn this competition down in a blaze of furious disgust. The fact that that particular band scored more votes than Vader, Wastëland Riders, and (especially) Urn angers me greatly, but then again so does seeing the neighbours cat shit in my garden, so I guess can go on without immolating anything for another week.

This week we asked for Tech riffs, and I honestly expected more submissions considering the amount of that stuff we see posted around the place. No doubt we’ll see a bunch of posers coming out of the woodwork and dropping their “forgotten” entries down in the comments. Same way I could have beaten Michael Phelps(*) but I just forgot to turn up on the day. Anyway, we got some good-ass weedlies, deedlies, sweeperoos, pinchies-pinchies, tappity-taps, and ejackety-jacks for you to choose from today. Make sure you use the PROMO CODE PRION after voting to trade in your old/used viruses for a new strain of your choice at your next GP waiting room visit (subject to availability).

Archspire – “Rapid Elemental Dissolve” (Riff @ 0:05)

You knew it was coming, 0:05. ARCHSPIRE


Spear

Inanimate Existence – “Staring Through Fire” (Riff @ 1:42)

“Staring Through Fire” is the song that introduced me to Inanimate Existence, and it’s one of the best tech songs ever penned. It has about a thousand riffs that would work, but I’m going with the one at 1:42. It’s big, it’s nasty, and it’s perfect, and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise.


Ellipsis

Unhuman – “(in)Human Being” (Riff @ 4:01)

Unhuman’s sole album dates back to 2013, but its quality keeps bringing me back. In particular, instrumental (in)human Being is a technical riff showcase, highlighted by the guitar interplay @ 4:01.


TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

Rings Of Guitar Pro [Lizard note – His words, not mine. But also mine] – “Godless Times” (Riff @ 0:00)

This song blows. This band blows. But I kind of like the opening riff, and I’m pretty sure I can play it at half speed. I’m a complete n00b when it comes to technical shit


Howard Dean

Psycroptic – “Immortal Army Of One” (Riff @ 0:48)

I have almost no ear for tech. This is no secret. My first instinct was to be a prick and submit the slam riff from Suffocation’s “Liege of Inveracity” since they are considered “brutal/technical” but that didn’t seem fair. My second instinct was to submit some random riff from Unquestionable Presence or From Wisdom to Hate because… fuck it, that’s why. But instead I took some time to sit down and really try to remember a memorable tech riff–one that was still be trapped in my head somewhere. And then this one came to me. A-ha! Found one (it was tucked behind memories of childhood bicycle accidents and Chinese buffet food poisoning). It starts at 0:48. Since I’m no tech connoisseur I can’t really say whether this riff is awesome or not, but it is memorable. I don’t really like the vocals much or the production, but the riff is kinda kewl. There’s another neat guitar part at 4:00 (which might be even better; I dunno). Thoughts? Is it hot or not?


Ted Nü-Djent

Gorguts – “Obscura” (Riff @ 0:00)

I don’t dig too much I tech, I don’t mind it but it’s not what I crave whenever I want to listen to music. I did enjoy this when I saw Gorguts earlier this year with none other than some Fharcwit who runs a silly riff of the week contest. Roll on at 0.00


Yarnhawk

The Monolith Deathcult – “Deus Ex Machina” (Riff @ 6:38)

This entire album is criminally underrated in the metal world. An excellent blend of Tech Death with synth, Triumvirate was an album that I heard before I got into any seriously heavy metal, and it stuck with me enough that once I came to appreciate brutality, it was one of the first albums I revisited. A crushing drum fill sets the tone for the blistering riff that follows, and I’ll be darned if it isn’t one heck of a humdinger.


Lacertilian

Suffering Hour – “Devouring Shapeless Void” (Riff @ 0:00)

As HD has already submitted a solid riff from my favourite metal band I’ll take this moment to drop in a fucking insane riff from Suffering Hour’s debut. No, you’re right, they’re not tech-death. But last week I deliberately left the theme open for interpretation by titling it simply “tech”. Even so, Suffering Hour are death metal, and this intro riff is as technical as any riff needs to be. Some fucking maniac had uploaded a pretty spot-on cover a couple of months before the damn album even came out, which you should take a quick look at if you wanna see this song in action. Jealous as fuck of that Aussie-made fanned-fret Ormsby weapon too.

Who?

Next week we’re going to be getting radioactive. Believe it or not but I actually had that theme idea written down before this week. Then that despotic dictator, that aspiring autocrat, that tiny-testicled trigger-touching tyrant, that draconian dickhole, that small-man-syndrome-suffering scumbag, that nepotistic neanderthal, that inheritance-incurring imbecile, that horrible-haircut-having homophobe, and Kim Jong-Un, decided to ramp-up rhetoric to distract from their atrocious policies and insanely low international approval rates. We may all be at the whim of two of the least diplomatically minded leaders the modern world has ever seen, but at least we still have our beautiful bowl-borne bureaucracy for one more week. Maybe. Send your NUCLEAR riffs to toiletovhellriff@gmail.com by Friday, being sure to include your screen-name, a time-stamp, and a short description.


*= At smoking bongs. Also, I meant a different Michael Phelps. Not the Olympian dude. Have you seen that prick swim?? His lung capacity would be HUGE. Bet he’s ripped more cones than some of his competitors have had hot dinners. Nah, I meant this Michael Phelps. He’s a fucking amateur. Look at him. Hahahahah, that guy sucks. Alright, so he’d probably be better than me too. But I’d at least give him a run for his money.

    • Eliza

      You made the right choice.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I was counting on this scenario.

  • Howard Dean

    Like I said in my description up top, I’m pretty much a tech pleb. But is that honestly what Archspire sounds like? Because that riff is like a dentist drill. It’s grating the way whistling hotel fire alarms at 3am are grating. Crikey. The metallic whine of cicadas is more pleasurable.

    I really like Spear’s riff (he’s pretty much the Terlet’s resident tech czar, so I expected no less!) and Lacertilian’s Suffering Hour riff is dang good, too (the Obscura riff is kewl for its pure skronkiness but isn’t overly “riff-y”). The entries this week further cemented my riff preference re: tech–it actually needs to sound like a riff. Like a recognizable, repeatable series of notes that is coherent and sounds good together (i.e. it sounds like someone actually composed it).

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      In terms of modern tech-death I’m pretty much a pleb as well. I’m all about stuff like Ulcerate, Decapitated’s ‘Winds of Creation’ and Anata’s ‘The Conductor’s Departure’ (are these bands really “tech” tho?) and I can occasionally enjoy some Necrophagist and Gorod, but for the rest my affinity with tech-death is confined to what was regarded as such in the 90’s (the 90’s stuff by Atheist, Gorguts, Cryptopsy, Death, Suffocation, Atrocity, Nocturnus, Nile, Pestilence, Cynic, Demilich…).

      • Howard Dean

        Yeah, the bands you listed at the end pretty much represent my tech death horizon (and I’m not really huge on bands like Cynic, either; it may be considered blasphemy, but I also think Death might be the most overrated death metal band ever). Most of the tech I enjoy is at least diluted 50-50% with straight up brutal death metal (bands like Suffo, Defeated Sanity, Wormed, etc).

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          The only Cynic album I actually really like is ‘Focus’. I don’t think too highly of any of their 2000’s post-reunion stuff. At the same time, no one else sounds like Cynic tho – so at least they’ve got personality going for their sound.

          The “Suffocation”-school of modern tech-death is definitely one of the more enjoyable types of that sound, though I don’t really jam it much either. Probably has to do with the fact that I always stack those bands up against peak Suffocation. And Suffocation at their peak were basically one of the greatest metal bands ever (imho).

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          I like Death. I just don’t get the worship, though I think that May have to do with the fact that Chuck is dead.

          • Howard Dean

            I like some of the cuts off of Scream Bloody Gore, Leprosy, and Spiritual Healing, but all-in-all I don’t find many of their tracks to be particularly great or memorable. Definitely not the catalog of a “greatest DM band ever” title that they are often given. I think many of their peers (Morbid Angel, Autopsy, Possessed, Obituary) had superior material during the same period. Definitely agree: Chuck’s untimely death is probably the cause of much of the worship.

      • Eliza

        I’ve only heard Atheist’s Undeniable Presence a few days ago (and loved it, by the way), so I’m behind when it comes to this genre as well. It’s something I don’t always feel like listening.

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          I’ve always been huge on the 90’s “tech-death” stuff. Probably because all of those bands, despite being named under the same moniker, all sounded vastly different from one another.
          Though those albums probably wouldn’t be regarded as “tech-death” anymore nowadays in the way that bands like Spawn of Possession, Origin, Allegation…are regarded as “tech-death” at the moment.

          • Eliza

            I get that. Modern tech death bands that I’ve listened to sound samey to me, which I’m sure is because of my lack of experience.

    • Jack Bauer

      Nah it’s not, thats from their debut when they hadn’t found their sound. THIS is what they sound like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lsnTQyGI78

      BREAKING NEWS:

      In a shocking turn of events FrankWhiteKingOfNY forces himself to admit to Señor Jefe El Rossover aka Boss The Ross that Manowar, at their peak, were once upon a time a good band.

      • Howard Dean
        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          I’d definitely attend a Manowar gig if there’s a bunch of good looking gals present as well.

          • Howard Dean

            A Manowar gig would most likely be a bunch of German dudes with glasses and greasy hair, but there’s probably a smattering of ladies, as well (and if they look anything like this gal, wah-wah-wee-wah). I’ve never been a big fan of the “metal gal” look, since I don’t really like the “pierced/tatted/too much jewelry and makeup” look (it’s a bit much and always seems way too put on), but the metal gal in the above pic seems legitimately gorgeous.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah, I’m not huge on the “metal chick” kinda look either, since I prefer the “everyday girl who takes good care of herself” kinda look…but hey:
            attractive = attractive

          • Eliza

            I’m not huge on the whole “metal look” think in general. I mean, I’m one of the most unmetal looking individuals ever, but that has nothing to do with it.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I’m not really actively “metal looking” either. Actually I own quite some designer clothes, track suits…
            I think the way you look has a bit to do with your surroundings; over here there isn’t much of a metal scene and I never really grew up in metal circles – aside from the local biker dude who took me to a Motörhead show when I was 15 – so I never really actively dressed that way either.

          • Eliza

            I have one Iron Maiden shirt, but that’s it when it comes to metal styled clothing for me.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            I almost exclusively own metal shirts but these days I prefer to buy shirts that don’t particularly look like they’re metal

          • Señor Jefe El Rossover

            I like vests.

            I have come to the conclusion that hot chicks really dig doom. Last night at Eye Hate God everywhere I looked there was a hot chick.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            A hot chick that digs doom and Eyehategod sounds like a winner.
            Anyway, over here there isn’t a solid metal gig to be found within miles. Last killer gig in the area was with Crowbar and Trouble…in fucking May 2016 (while I was in China nota bene)…

          • more beer

            It is very different here. Personally I think at the present time Denver has the best metal scene in the country. There are shows every week, plus there are a lot of really good bands here. So even if a big touring band isn’t in town you can always find a good local show to go to. On the downside it also brings out a lot of bro dudes. They were certainly out last night as well.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Bro’s at shows are a given. In itself, I don’t really have a problem with them if they have a somewhat decent taste in metal (and to some people, I may look a bit “bro-like” myself as well). It’s mostly the “core, Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch 4 life”-types that get on my nerves.

          • more beer

            I think here it depends on the band and the venue whether the bro dudes are out. They were out in force last night, but the show I am going to tonight, at my favorite dive bar they won’t be. I don’t typically go to shows that attract that crowd. But they tend to be at a lot of the bigger shows. They tend to avoid the more underground stuff.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah most bro dudes seem to be more into the hot topic metal styles like deathcore, sumerian stuff, djent, melodic metalcore…
            The fact that those are the most widespread and most listened to metal styles nowadays kinda sucks tho, cause that way the “bro metalhead” has become somewhat of a metalhead prototype to people who don’t really know much about the genre or scene in itself.
            For instance, over here I don’t know too many people who are into metal at all, but those who consider themselves “metal fans” are mostly into stuff like Parkway Drive or August Burns Red. You know, the kind of metal that walks the line between what can be considered metal and what not. And the thing is that they aren’t even into any other “grey zone metal” styles; they’re not into Converge, not into Deftones, not into Tool, not into Dillinger… Nope, just Parkway Drive.

          • more beer

            All of the styles you described are things I don’t really like, so I tend to avoid them. Which also helps with not having to deal with their fans. If I decide to go to Summer Slaughter next week, I haven’t decided yet because the lineup is weak. There will be a lot of those types at that show.Plus its 32 bucks for me to end up standing outside of the venue getting blazed. I can do that for free elsewhere. Do I really want to subject myself to that?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Usually I can find stuff to like in most metal-related styles and I do like albums such as Burn My Eyes, Demanufacture, Alive or Just Breathing, Destroy Erase Improve, Aenima, Calculating Infinity, Around the Fur, Slaughter of the Soul, From Mars to Sirius, Leviathan… I mean, aside from the fact that those albums got really “popular” (by metal standards), at least they presented their own take on the genre when they came out and love or hate them, at least they had some personality going for them.

            A lot of those metal-related styles that got really popular after 2005 on the other hand, like deathcore, sumeriancore, that “progressive” dweedle noodle wank Periphery djent…even a lot of that modern The Faceless-like tech-death…I dunno, there’s a lot lacking to even my ears (despite the fact that I can appreciate different takes on the genre)… Of course this is all subjective, but I just don’t think there’s a lot of personality, vibe, longevity or oomph-factor in that stuff.

            Just took a peek at the Summer Slaughter line up. Dying Fetus is a band I can occasionally enjoy (tho I don’t really jam them a lot anymore) and I don’t really have anything against The Black Dahlia Murder (tho this is also a band I don’t really go out of my way for to listen to), the other bands on the bill are mediocre to extremely crappy imo. Probably won’t pay up 32 bucks for that either.

          • more beer

            I have seen Dying Fetus a bunch of times, I don’t really like the TBDM they have always just been another generic death metal band to me. Origin brings it live but have seen them as well. The rest is shit that I have no desire to see. I will see what is going on next weekend then decide.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            TBDM’s music is rather bland yeah. I’ve seen them live and they put on an alright show, but their albums aren’t really anything special.
            But yeah…Oceano, The Faceless…that shit attracts the bro brigade like honey attracts a school of ants.

          • more beer

            I have seen TBDM before as well, I have never been impressed. I have friends asking me to go this. But I am really not sure I can get behind this lineup in the least.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I think the amount of good bands should at least edge out the amount of mediocre and crap stuff on a line up. At the big metal fest in Belgium this year there were always the bands I wanted to see playing at the same time, while shit bands got a spot on the main stage scheduled so everyone could watch them: I was forced to choose between Psychotic Waltz or Rotting Christ, while there wasn’t any other band playing at the time Five Finger Douche Punch was “rocking out” on the main stage.

          • more beer

            It always happens like that. Especially when there is more than one stage. The only exception I have found to that has been Denver Black Sky. But that is because Sherwood from Skinless and Black Sky Brewery are working together to put on the best metal fest possible. They have two stages but no really bad bands on the lineup. So one band finishes and the next one starts. It also helps that everyone booking the bands is actually a metal fan.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah that’s the main difference. A lot of those who organize the big metal fests just make sure everybody is able to go see the mainstream bands because they assume everybody just wants to see those bands.
            Over here they are sadly enough pretty much correct though… If Sabaton and Voivod would be playing at the same time, 95% of the crowd would go watch Sabaton – never mind the fact that Voivod rules and Sabaton sucks a big one.

          • more beer

            It all comes down to the promoter, is the promoter just trying to make a quick buck or are they doing it for the love of the music.

          • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

            Really? At the EHG show here in El Paso there were only 3 or 4 chicks, none of them particularly attractive

            (I apologize if any girl from EP that was at the EHG show reads this; for the record, I’m not a particularly attractive dude anyway)

          • more beer

            Yea really, there is a really big doom scene here with lots of ladies. Plus Denver is a much bigger city than El Paso. I have some friends down there solid metal dudes, so I have been there a few times. Most metal dudes aren’t really pretty boys, so we are all in the same boat in the looks department.

          • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

            One thing that I was discussing with a friend is that cities with a low cost of living (like EP) tend to have less of a music scene. A guitar costs the same anywhere in the country, and a decent guitar (if you plan on performing live) will be around $500-$700. In El Paso, that’s like an entire month of rent of a decent apartment, so people are more hesitant to buy one; whereas in a place like New York or San Francisco (where rents can go up to $3000) it isn’t really such a big purchase, prompting people to give it a go. It’s just a theory anyway

            And of course Denver has the best doom scene in the country right now, with bands like Khemmis, Primitive Man and Neverkenezzard

          • more beer

            We have the best scene in the country I think. It goes well beyond just doom but you left out In The Company Of Serpents, another of our killer doom bands. But we have good bands from every genre. But we also have probably 25 venues that book metal bands. Places like El Paso and Albuquerque have much lower costs of living but they also have much lower wages which doesn’t help, along with less venues. But the one thing I know is the metlheads I know in those places are very passionate about the music.

          • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

            Yes, there are good metal fans here. Metal concerts rarely sell out here, but enough people attend; enough for the band and club to turn a profit and make the band want to come back

            I’ll check out Company Of Serpents, thanks for the recommendation

          • more beer

            Those are the things that matter. Here you go I don’t typically like 2 piece bands but these guys bring it. Last year at Denver Black Sky they all sorts of ladies shaking their asses.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLEwVHzCzhQ

          On both sides of the spectrum the extremists are a problem. I am all for peaceful protest, but both extreme sides have resorted to violence and destruction. It doesn’t matter which side is doing these things, it does nothing to solve any problems. All it does is cause more problems. There has to come a time where there is some sort of cooperation between both sides, for the greater good of the country. But neither side is willing to give an inch and things just keep getting worse. So until that happens I guess we’re all just fucked.

            Well that is also what Trump said. So I wasn’t so sure what to make of that.

          • it would also be nice if people were protesting for something good. i hear many people complaining about BLM, but they are at least protesting for fair treatment. the neo-nazis are protesting for the ability to hate people and keep up monuments of traitors who represented hatred.

            My biggest problem with BLM is they only crawl out of the woodwork, when a cop kills someone. They never say anything about black on black killings, which far exceed black people getting killed by cops. Which makes that a much bigger issue. Like I said I don’t care if the far right and far left extremists, kill each other. Both sides are to blame for a lot of the division in this country. Tearing down monuments does not change our history. In a way I think they should stay, as a reminder to our past mistakes, so they don’t repeat themselves.

            I saw the news yesterday on TV, but didn’t pay much attention because I saw it on CNN and was too much focused on how Ana Cabrera is a super hot milf.

            I agree with you on the monuments thing. It like Whoopi Goldberg said regarding those old racist Looney Tunes cartoons: they are vile and inexcusable, but to remove them and delete them is to say that racist never actually existed

            Yea if we erase our past it gets forgotten and down the road the same mistakes will be made. We really need to leave some things alone as reminder. But we have a new class of people here now, the offended class. Focusing on hot milfs is always better than watching CNN.

            My problem with BLM is that they never say anything about white on white crime. 84% of white murder victims are killed by whites, yet not a peep from BLM. Understandably, it makes people wonder about their priorities.

            Look at the crime statistics on the FBI website. Before you say silly things. Black on black crime far exceeds white on white crime. Also keep in mind they are only about 13% of the population. You would have to be blind to not acknowledge these facts.

          • Óðinn

            So why is white on white crime so prevalent, one may ask? Is it the music they listen to? Is it the white divorce rate, resulting in more white children coming from broken homes? Perhaps it’s the TV shows they watch or the violent sports they play. More than likely, it is a combination of all of those things, with the exact root cause unclear. What is clear, though, is that not enough people are talking about the crime plaguing the white community. We need to spread the word, holding protests and demonstrations that call attention to this growing matter. Because, after all—-white lives matter, too.

    Didn’t vote cos’ only half the videos are available in the country where I keep my holiday homes and sex slave dungeons.

    Submissions to ToH need to take that into account, not that I give a shit.

    Anyway, it’s Saturday night so I’m off to see what Prairie Dawn’s up to, or not.

      There’s no way for them to tell what will and won’t work in each country.

      • Bert

        Sex slave dungeons work in any country. Ya just gotta keep it quiet.

        …and yeah, it’s a Youtube issue. I’ll take my talking bollocks back.

    Sadly I started a new job and forgot to send in my riff even though I had one picked. Why didn’t anyone send in a Spawn of Possesion riff? C’mon guys, they practically perfected tech.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      SoP was going to be my original choice but couldn’t settle on a riff. Then I remembered Gorgets.

  • lagerbottoms

    Weird that I have almost all of these albums and even own a good few of them 😀

    Gorguts is easily my favorite here, but then I always get reminded of Luc Lemay always saying in interviews that his guitar playing isn’t technical and how he isn’t a very good guitarist. He just knows how to compose good songs and use a guitar in original ways …
