I’m not kidding with you that’s what it says.

80’s Rocker Chick getting ready to smash a guitar.

Send help.

Last week, mighty Boss the Ross took home 19 votes with his pick for solo of the year. Well done, boss. Your prize is waiting for you somewhere out in the big blue world. Get out there and claim it!

Next week, we’re doing regular riffs. Because I have a really good one that I’m pretty sure is going to score me at least two votes. Send your riffs to toiletovhellriff@gmail.com. Include your name, a link to the riff, the time of the riff, and an explanation. If you have an idea for a theme or what-not, let me know.

Let’s play some riffs.

 

Masterlord

One of the best metal songs ever written, so do with this what you will. Heckin’ poser jerks. Riff starts at 0:30.

 

Maik Beninton

80’s riffs… I only know low hanging fruit so I will go with Celtic Frost. This song has a very good riff and my favorite Tom G. Warrior grunt.

 

Sir Tapir

This album has more riffs than the law allows. This one comes @ aboot 3:49.

 

Akerwhatever ov Steele

0:20, I mean wtf if this does not make you want to punch things with your fists and/or penis, then you’re probably dead.

 

Brock Samson

My first death metal record and the opening riff has always been one of my favorites.

 

Ellipsis

Overkill bring that 80’s thrash goodness @2:07…

 

Old Man Doom

Rock’s chosen warriors will rule the apocalypse.

 

Ted Nü-Djent

Don’t ask me (to pick one riff from the 80’s). I don’t know. 0.00.

 

Stanley

1987 was the year and what a glorious year it was. A lot of my all-time favorite thrash albums came out in 1997 (Killing Technology, The Ultra-Violence, The Legacy, R.I.P., Terror Squad, Kill for Pleasure, the list goes on). Standing head and shoulders with these classics was Holy Terror’s Terror and Submission. Driven by the twin guitar attack of Kurt Kilfelt and Mike Alford, and the unique vocals of Keith Deen (R.I.P), Holy Terror combined speed metal with thrash to deliver riff excellence. Riff starts at 0:03.

 

Boss the Ross

I’m going a little out of the norm, with all of the eighties to choose from I decided to go with the best Doom riff by a non-Doom band. The opening riff to Black Flag’s “Modern Man” is pure unadulterated Doom. It finishes the song as well and each time I listen to it I feel one step closer to death. Simply heavy. Greg Ginn’s eerie guitar work in the background creeps around you and fills your eyes with darkness. I’ve been listening to this album a lot, and now you too can get a taste of it. I’m not expecting too many votes this week, oh well.

 

Waynecro

The riff at 2:35 is one of my favorite riffs of all time, and it’s the first riff I thought of for this Riff ov the Week.

 

Lacertilian

After missing the last couple of weeks of the riffening, it got to Saturday here and I realised I didn’t want to miss out again. I’ve been listening to some of my old faves lately and the clean intro to this track takes me back to my teens, discovering the German thrash legends and cranking the various tracks of theirs I had collected. The riff I’ve chosen is the main riff that cuts through the glass at 0:43.

 

Tigeraid

I had a few choice Power riffs to go on here, but actually decided on one of my fav thrash anthems of all time instead. You can really pick any of the riffs throughout this tune to HANDILY win this week’s competition. 0:24 to open it up, 0:50 to get us rolling, and then the main riff beginning at 1:40. High School headbanging at its headbangiest.

  • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

    Good morning my fellow flushers! Boss the Ross checking in and checking out. Have a good day and enjoy the riffffffsssss!!!!

    • more beer

      Make sure you have lots of beer for your move. It makes it much less painful. Take this advice from an old guy who has moved way too many times.

      • Haven’t moved in a while, but I’ve helped plenty of friends do so over the years.

        • more beer

          I get hit up by moving friends all the time. As I have a pickup truck.

          • I helped a dealer friend move once. He had close to 1000 albums in milk crates. We drove about 3 hours each way as well. Surprisingly enough considering, only one other person showed up to help, which was fine by me since I ended up with a 1/2 oz for my trouble instead of the 1/4 I was promised.

          • more beer

            He should have given you an ounce for that. I don’t help dealers move. They can afford to hire professionals.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            i had to help one of my dealers move furniture and untangle a rats nest of wires just yesterday before shed give me a bag. she cut me off some hash for my troubles >>>>>>

          • more beer

            That is what is good here. No one in the dispensary is going to ask me to do any work. They have employees for that.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            zhes an older lady, her husband has severe MS, and shes like a watchdog at the 1st floor of the apts. i dont mind giving her a hand. especially if hash is involved

          • more beer

            That’s a little different. I wouldn’t say no to an older lady with a disabled husband either.

          • He used to give me shake for free all the time so I wasn’t going to argue the point. I also got a big lunch out of it as well, not to mention we stopped every 15 minutes to get high.

          • more beer

            Fair enough.

          • We used to hang out a lot too. He was a big Star Trek fan.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Last year I drove some local dealer to the house where he was going to ‘take care of his garden’. He gave me 1/4 oz in return. I was fine with that.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            same, and bein strong, recipe for people asking for my help

          • more beer

            Now I will only help people who are willing to help me out with things, Because most people will just take advantage of you.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            fucking people, man

          • more beer

            Yep they suck.

  • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

    Well, the riff I sent didn’t get posted (probably for the protection of all nutsacks that would’ve ended up exploding), but here ya go. Riffs start pretty much anywhere in the song, and as with 90% of his stuff, it’s riff after riff after riff.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoERl34Ld00

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    Now this riffing contest is a pure fucking struggle. Should I choose Death, Celtic Frost, Mercyful Fate, Overkill, Testament or Kreator? Damn this one’s tough.

    • more beer

      Yea this week is tough one. So many classics.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        True. I’ll just think this one over for a moment.

        • more beer

          At least I don’t have to listen to everything. As there is nothing here I haven’t heard numerous times.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Same for me. I gave Leprosy, Don’t Break the Oath and Morbid Tales another spin just last week.

          • more beer

            I think I am going to give it to Masterlord. I have always liked how grimy that album sounds.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah, it’s the one I’m the least familiar with from the entire list but I’ve heard it before. I like the gritty, raw thrash from that era.

          • more beer

            I’ve had that album since it came out. I still listen to it from time to time.

    • megachiles

      I was torn between Mercyful Fate and Death, but went with the latter because Leprosy is my fav Death album and Chuck is love, Chuck is life.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        I really think all Death is good Death. They absolutely slayed when they were doing it the old school way and they were equally brilliant when they started playing their proggy tech-death. A lot of those modern tech-death bands could still learn a thing or two from the way Chuck was doing it.

        • megachiles

          For realz. I was listening to The Sound of Perseverance yesterday and was reminded of how impressive his playing was. I have guitar playing friends who don’t listen to metal that regularly practice Spirit Crusher and Voice of the Soul.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I love The Sound of Perseverance. And the funny thing is that album has a lot of guitar wank, but still it sounds way more interesting and surprising to me than stuff such as Necrophagist – something I really can’t get into.

          • Rob M

            Always felt like The Sound of Perseverance was the weakest Death album though. It would have been more fitting as the debut for Control Denied

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            In my case Spiritual Healing is the album I play the least, even though I still think it’s pretty good. I was cool with The Sound of Perseverance. Death has always been a band that you could clearly see gradually changing from album to album. The fact that they ended up this progressive on TSoP didn’t really surprise me. Though I can totally understand others disliking the album.

          • Rob M

            Its not a bad album…I just think its a bad Death album. Death was clearly evolving with each release as Chucks interests were changing, but I think even before The Sound of Perseverance came out he was done with death metal and wanted to move onto something else.

            The direction The Sound of Perseverance took makes me feel like it would have fit his Control Denied project better..just my two cents

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I totally understand your take on it. When it comes to TSoP I actually don’t like the Painkiller cover, while others seem to love it. For me it’s even a bit of a sour ending to the album. I always skip that one.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            To release it under Death’s name was a label demand, not Chuck’s choice. So the story has been told since time immemorial.

        • more beer
          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Damn. Definitely jealous now!

          • more beer

            I saw so many of the old school bands at that place. Here other than the hair bands I saw pretty much every show there.http://www.setlist.fm/venue/streets-new-rochelle-ny-usa-1bd721a4.html

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Some seriously great bands playing right there!

          • more beer

            Yea that was probably one of the best metal clubs ever. It was only 20 minutes from my house. Which was nice.

    • Eliza

      I feel your pain.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      If you don’t choose death, this is your last day

      ON THIS

      FUCKING EAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARTH

  • Dubs

    I was going to try to be clever/annoying and submit a Taylor Swift song from 1989 but forgot. I give my vote to the Wayne, though there were a number of other killer cuts on offer here.

    • megachiles

      You would have had my vote for that. Pop T-Swift slays.

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        NOPE

        • megachiles

          Thems fightin’ words.

          • more beer

            The Tapir will stab you. He is no hippy.

          • megachiles

            I mean, it’s cool if he can’t get behind T-Swift, but if he’s saying country T-Swift >>>> pop T-Swift we’re gonna have to meet at the flagpole after 8th period and punch this out.

          • more beer

            Hahaha! But I am with Tapir on this. It doesn’t matter which one it is. To me it is all the same.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I actually don’t even think she’s all that hot…

          • more beer

            I’d bang her for her money.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Can’t argue with that. I’d even bang rich women 20 years my senior for their money.

          • more beer

            I can’t get away with that. That is way too old for me at my age.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Remember, no matter how disgusting or loose it gets, there’s nothing some Kamagra can’t fix hahaha!

          • more beer

            You gotta have some standards.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Totally true. In fact, my problem is that I’ve been way too picky in the past.

          • more beer

            You have to be. Or else you end up with. Some psychotic bipolar crazy chick.

          • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

            Pffffffffffffffffffttttt, standards are for wimps. I’ve managed to live my whole life without them, and look at how triumphant and glorious I turned out to be.

          • more beer

            Like I said. You gotta have some standards.

          • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

            Not me! Getting that loot and benefits definitely changes my morals and standards in a hurry, even if it means knocking the bats and cobwebs out of some granny’s crusty fuzz dumpster with my ding a ling.

          • more beer

            The reason I have a business is so I don’t have to do some nasty shit like that.

          • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

            Gotta think of the future, though. A couple years porking that, they keel over, and the loot is all your’s, plus benefits.

          • more beer

            Your dick has to get hard to stick it. There is no 70 year old woman who can make that happen for me.

          • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

          • more beer

            Nope.

    • brokensnow

      You could just donate large amounts of money to a sub-par pop star. it would have had the same effect.

      • Dubs

        Wait, bands are making money off Riff ov the Week?

        • brokensnow

          in bizzarro land, sure.

          • Dubs

            Ins’t that what your comment was implying, though? How does a joke = donating large amounts of money?

          • brokensnow

        • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

          Yes, in a 3rd world gulag/sweatshop we’ve been running on the side. *cracks the whip and dumps their gruel out of spite*

    • tigeraid

      My hate for pop would war with my love of a perfect WCW-style swerve. I think I’dve had to vote for it.

      • Dubs

        I know I rightfully give you a hard time, but you’re A-okay in my book.

    • Stanley

      The Legacy has killer riffs throughout. The Skolnick/Peterson duo are class. Odd choice of riff though, as that section is more lead orientated. Anything from Raging Waters or COTLOD would have got my vote.

  • High on Vallenfyre

    That was tough. Good picks everyone!

  • DVRKBEVRD

    i have to reserve my vote til i get done with work today but theres some gooduns here

  • 365ChaosRiddenDays

    Riff from Morbid Tales…wise choice!

          I only know the political one. Assuming that is one of the ones you speak of.
          Who is this other one?

          • This is the Maddox I was talking about. http://maddox.xmission.com/
            For the record: I think Maddow is a cool lady and oddly foxy.

          • Lacertilian

            Agreed, the times I’ve seen her discuss news in the media she came across as quite well-spoken and had an obvious passion and skill-set for debating. Strong/influential women have a certain appeal.

          • I used to listen to her every day on Air America Radio.

        • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

          Over the last 10 years, yep, THE Maddox has sucked balls, big time. He’s like that kid that was cool in high school or college that’s still trying to cling onto his glory days while everyone else moved on. His whole schtick got pretty tiresome after a while.

    • Stockhausen

      You were born in 2002.

  • My brain failed to work until this morning so here’s a post entry that I think would’ve done well.

    • more beer

      Scott Ian hasn’t written a good riff since this album.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Among the Living was still acceptable. After that album the love kinda is over between me and Anthrax.

        • more beer

          Not a single Riff on any Anthrax album. Is as hard as the riffs on Speak English Or Die.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            True. He saved all of his best riffs for this album. Nevertheless, if someone doesn’t like the riffs on Speak English Or Die it’s advisable for that person to go to a doctor to check out if anything’s still left of his pair of balls.

          • more beer

            I agree 100%!

      • No doubt this is a classic album. Anthrax has plenty of good moments for me, especially State of Euphoria.

        • more beer

          I was done with Anthrax in like 1986. They just never really did it for me. I loved this album though. Saw them a couple of times right before this came out and again after it came out. But the first time was the best show I have ever been to. That is saying something. I have been to a lot of shows over the course of 30 something years.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            i never dug Anthrax either

          • more beer

            I used to see Ian all over the place in New York. I always thought he was kind of douchey. I didn’t even think they were that good.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            Stupid f****** goatee gets me everytime

          • more beer

            It was always the sub par music that got me.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I always saw Anthrax as a “fun band”. They aren’t bad by any means, I still enjoy Spreading the Disease and Among the Living every now and then. But personally I’m just more drawn to the aggressive, atmospheric, dark, crushing and/or trippy stuff. I don’t feel any of those characteristics apply to Anthrax.

          • Rob M

            …could never get into them either. Never understood the appeal

          • This was definitely the heaviest thing out there at the time. I’ll bet that was a killer show.

          • more beer

            With Overkill both times. God shows.

          • I liked “Spreading” and “Among”. I liked “Euphoria” for about a month before I got bored.
            I saw S.O.D. in 1999, great show.

      • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

        And Billy Milano’s went full Ted Nugent in the meantime. All while clinging onto the somewhat glory days of SOD decades later.

          I liked him a lot better than Ian. He gave me a really tight pipe at one of the MOD record release parties.

    Dammit, how do you expect me to pick between Celtic Front and Mercyful Fate

  • Unholy fuck!

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Old Man Doom wins automatically. Anything with Pete Way and Fast Eddie Clarke gets my vote

    • I’m guessing you’ll dig this. Todd does a good job and, as a BMouth commenter points out, Joel was probably psyched to actually play the song in the right key.

  • Eliza

    I find it quite impossible to choose this week.

    • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

      I gotta a couple of picks I’m leaning towards, but still undecided. The whole lineup this week was solid as hell.

    I find your lack of votes for Brock disturbing.

            You gotta get on with your life. Plus most of the shit I was doing my family didn’t really approve of.

          • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

            Same here. My high school years were pretty much a waste of my time as well, so it was best to do my own thing. If I would’ve thought of it, I would’ve just dropped out at 16, got my GED and work permit, worked and saved until I turned 18.

          • more beer

            I joined the service to be out. There is no looking back after that. I was wild and wanted to do what I wanted to do. Living with my family wasn’t one of those things I wanted to do.

          • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

            I actually didn’t get along with any of my family until after I moved out. I guess we needed our personal space, and I needed to hit the city and get the teenage piss and vinegar out of my system after all those years.

        • FUCK JIN RAH.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        What things? The only concert I plan on seeing is Fear Factory with Soilwork and possibly Molly Hatchet at a BBQ Festival in Danbury.

    Got a new case for my phone and the hole for the headphone jack is too small for my headphone. Hopefully I can cut off some of the case without damaging the case too much. Could always grab some smaller headphones or earbuds and deal with it.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      The animation is supposed to be funny? I hope not.

  • JWEG

    Lot of good riff options. But Razor, one of two I was contemplating submitting last week, gets my vote.

    The other would have been: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXFHnbbTZrA

    Basically when confronted with too many options, I narrow by Canadian-ness.

  • Stanley

    I came here to say that you’ve all got shit in your ears, but then I realized there are a few good riffs here. Carry on.

    • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

      Is that you, Tapir? Is this me?

      • Stanley

        I’m just grumpy cos no votes. Holy Terror are the business.

        • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

          Shit, my submission didn’t even get posted. 🙁

          • more beer

            You wouldn’t have won anyway.

          • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

            Probably not. :-p

          • Stanley

            Was it Angra?

  • Brock wins because thay Death riff caused my girl to shake her booty and is now stuck in her head.

    • more beer

      Is she still shaking her booty?

  • tigeraid

    Ah shit, Tapir with the fuckin Mercyful Fate drop!

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    I thought this week was totally going to be a week of Metallica worship. Well done contributors. Even though I totally wanted to submit Master Of Puppets

    • Óðinn

      Submit Master of Puppets and Angel of Death just to make sure you win. 😉

    • Waynecro

      I dig it.

    • more beer

      I like it more than most black metal. But I am not that into black metal.

      • Yeah, not very black metal in my opinion. Reminds me of Tribulation.

        • DVRKBEVRD

          more thrash and groove than black

          • Yeah, definitely. Good call.

          • more beer

            Blackened thrash.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            With a lot of NWOBHM in it.

          • more beer

            Yea that too. That will probably be the only time I listen to that. Just not really what I really like.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Right on. I dig it quite a lot.

          • more beer

            That’s cool.

        • more beer

          The songs are too long. I have a short attention span.

          • Boom.

          • more beer

            That’s why I listen to a lot of grind, punk and hardcore. Short songs.

          • I’ve been on a grind kick lately. New Scab album and all being done has had an effect. Lots of gory grind.

          • more beer

            Nice I knew you were working on new material, but didn’t know it was finished. Is it on bandcamp yet?

          • Nope! I can send you some tracks if you want. Send me an email at grindblaster88@gmail.com

          • more beer

            Right on. I liked the others.

          • This one is way tighter. Scary actually.

          • more beer

            What I heard so far it is solid grind. That’s what you want to keep getting tighter.

          • Yup, looking forward to the next one. Getting more serious with each one.

          • more beer

            Time to hit the road and live the life.

          • Yeah no shit man. I’m ready.

          • more beer

            done

          • Sent you some circus tickets homes.

          • more beer

            I am listening right now. Very good.

          • Hahaha! Thanks.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            When will it officially be released for us plebeians?

          • Very soon. Less than a month probably.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Solid.
            How’s the art coming? All finished?

          • Art work is finished. Just waiting on Taylor to approve it. It will be approved though.

          • more beer

            Looking forward to hearing the rest of it.

          • more beer

            Short songs!

          • It’s grind. Fucker.

          • more beer

            I know. But that is how to keep this potheads attention.

          • You are a good man. I’ll get another beer.

          • more beer

            As are you. I will blaze my next joint to you.I am only getting blazed tonight. Been sick for weeks and finally feeling better. So laying low on the beer this weekend.

          • Óðinn

            Nekrofilth has some short songs.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxltzPCh0Ls

          • Fucking love this band.

          • more beer

            I have seen them a bunch of times. They are now based out of Denver.

    • DVRKBEVRD

      a tight album that gets a little repetitive

    • Óðinn

      I don’t mind it, although I wish it was a little bit dirtier. Their last album, Ildsvanger is dirty as fuck, and pretty fucking good too. They changed their sound very quickly. They sound more Heavy Metal than Black Metal to me on Beautiful and Damned.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ig2L7ErsTzY

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        I like the direction they’re going. Cant wait for the next full length

    • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

      They’re good.

    • It has melodies. I dig.

  • Waynecro

    DEATH!!!

  • Óðinn
  • Lacertilian

    It came down to Masterlord, Brock and Stan for the lizard vote this week.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    My sister bought me a copy of Lights Out by Unidentifed Flying Object. I have no clue how she knew I loved them. I haven’t been this happy about a gift ever.

    • Stanley

      That is a good gift.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        She also got a Robin Trower album and Hair Of The Dog by Nazareth. There was a lot of funk, a Cat Stevens album, a Michael Bolton album and an album from a car dealership.

        • Stanley

          I guess you just got lucky with the one then. Can’t win them all.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I like Trower and Nazareth. I think the Trower album she got was Bridge Of Sighs which is his best album. Same with Hair Of The Dog.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Oh 1986’s Trick or Treat, I wish I could stop loving/hating you

  • Phoenix of the House Tendies

    Had to go with Stan, cause Holy Terror are WAY too fucking underrated, even by thrash fans.

    • Stanley

      You know it makes sense

  • Lacertilian

    ..

  • Opinions on the new Lycus album? About to jam it here.

    • DVRKBEVRD

      i havent listened yet. let me know if you think id dig it

        • DVRKBEVRD

          i wouldve thot you already had these. production ruins these albums for me. sry bby

          • Too harsh?

          • DVRKBEVRD

            i feel like the last time i listened to Black Cilice it was really muted, but that Clandestine blaze was harsh and brassy

          • DVRKBEVRD

            not saying they arent good albums

          • DVRKBEVRD

            donno if youre interested but they just reissued all the Arghoslent LPs

    • CT-12

      I dug it, though I need to give it some more spins. Got caught up in a few other purchases and so it sort of fell to the wayside. Just grabbed the new Inverloch, so those 2 will probably get a ton of spins in the next week!

  • DVRKBEVRD

    so i was basically just forced to vote for the Poopbeast. just ridiculous.

    other goods were Swolenecro, Lassy, and Dots

    The Iron Maiden plane crashed into a tow truck in Chile and is badly damaged.http://www.cnn.com/2016/03/12/world/iron-maiden-plane-damaged-irpt/index.html

    • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

      The tow truck was used to haul Paul Di’Anno away after the crew found him napping in the cargo bay.

      • more beer

        Well his fat ass really fucked up that plane!

        • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

          That easily put them 2 1/2 tons over their limit.

        • Man, talk about “how the mighty have fallen”.

  • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

    After much thinking, my vote went to our favorite imaginary Finnish Noo-Noo looking thing.
