Riff ov the Week: Bands Whose Names End with the Letters “er”

I’m just going to keep picking dumbass categories like this one until someone gives me a theme.

Do you realize how many different combinations of letters I could use for similar themes? I could pick bands that end with “at”, for example. Hell, I could do bands that end in “th”, “ed”, or “on”. Alternatively, I could go with bands that start with certain letters. “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, “E”, “F”, all the way up to “Z”. Or a large number of combinations of 2. Or even 3! I swear to you; I will do every single one until I get some recommendations.

Next week:

  • We’re only taking bands whose names end with the letters “th”, in that order.
  • Send your riffs to toiletovhellriff@gmail.com. Include your name, a link, a description, and the time of the riff.
  • Let’s do this!

 

Masterlord

Bulldozer or die, poser!” — Dr. Seuss

 

Joe

If you didn’t think I would submit Mammoth Grinder you are a stupid person with poor predictive abilities. “Moral Crux” is pretty much one big fuckall riff that punches you in the dick with your own arm and asks you mockingly “Why do you keep punching yourself in the dick with your own arm, dork??”. It starts at 0:19.

 

W.

Dubs with the deep thrash cut FTW. 10 seconds when the drums roll in.

 

Hotdog Clifford

SLAYERRRRR!

 

Maik 

Er… the main riff I choose.

 

Howard Dean

BOLT THROWER ATTACK!!! 0:16

 

Lacertilian

The day has arrived.

 

Dagon

Lots of classic bands will be submitted and one of them will probably win. Still, no one will be able to deny the power of this young band’s start stop riff. One of the greatest finds from our “Best Unsigned Band In The US” contest.

 

Ron Deuce

Terrorizer’s World Downfall is one of the best grindcore albums of all time that still holds up today. The riff that starts at :30 goes perfectly with Pete Sandoval’s menacing blast beat. This combo is on another level of intensity that is only found in the upper echelon of the grind game.

 

Gorak

GORAK NOT UNDERSTAND WORDS BY FUNNY TALKING MEN! BUT INTRO RIFF GOOD!

 

Vegglampe

I have always loved my own cultural heritage, and Einherjer from my neighboring city has always delivered on that front. First riff is the riff. Does there exist better music? Yes. Is this riff still awesome? Yes.

 

Stanley

Last year’s Fimbulwinter pissed off a few long time Satanic Warmaster fans with it’s polished production values, but there’s no denying the quality of the riffs on display. Riff starts during the thunder at 0:00.

 

John

As I perused my music library, it occurred to me that I have way more bands that end in “or” than in “er…” and I thought about submitting one, like Kreator, and pawning it off as “I PRONOUNCE IT ‘ER!'” …But I digress. How about these groovy sick licks from one of the best female-fronted power metal bands in the business? A nice bluesy stroll behind the Dio-esque vocals of Nina Osegueda. [Back the Kickstarter for their new album with killer perks here. — Masterlord]

 

NineInchNeurosis

Pallbearer ist best bearer. Starts at the start.

 

Ted Nü-Djent

I was tempted to go back to the well and submit another Enforcer track. Then I rememdered the riff at the end of “Eyes Bleached” by God Mother. I recommend you start listening from about 3:30, but the actual riff kicks in at about 3:43 and continues through until the end of the track when it breaks down (not THAT type of breakdown) into a terrible mess of white noise and distortion. Listen HERE. [Sorry, embed is being wonky. — Masterlord]

  • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

    Some interesting choices in here today.

  • Kevin Nash & Friends

    I completely forgot to say what the riff was in mine. It was a good one too.

  • Scrimm

    No Dismember? For shame.

    • My submission is pretty much the same riff as “I Saw Them Die”

      • Scrimm

        I did not notice that until you mentioned it.

  • Boz Nü-Djent ™

    Mine is really good and it’s there, you just have to look. Trust me. It’s midnight now and I should have been in bed hours ago but instead I decided to watch Jurassic World. I’m off to bed to be up early for a 30km mountain hike/ bush walk. Here’s a video of part of the journey that I will be taking. Also nice one Hotdog, you got my vote.

    https://youtu.be/z0ZFmA0c_C0

    • That Godmother album is one of the best of the year for my money. I like the way the album ends.

      • Boz Nü-Djent ™

        Just spewing that the embedding feature crapping out for it would mean that it probably got lost on everyone

    • Lacertilinger

      THE RIFFS ON THIS VIDEO SUCKKKKK

      • Boz Nü-Djent ™

        They do and it sucks that my mate hurt his knee at soccer yesterday and pulled the pin.

        • Lacertilinger

          So I take it you didn’t go?

          • Boz Nü-Djent ™

            Went for a bushwank instead. Not long at all

  • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

    Man do I love that Satanic Warmaster song and riff. Fuck off Ron! That is one of my favorite grindcore songs of all time and that riff is just mean as a hell; GOOD PICK! Also Bulldozer!!! That album is full of incredible riffs and that song in particular brings it sooooo hard.

    This is difficult you fucks.

  • Boz Nü-Djent ™

    I was tempted to submit this
    https://youtu.be/cuc6Ks9DTIo

  • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

    Sorry, can’t help it.

    “It’s fucking whiskey time!”

  • CT-12

    Really dug everything I heard, surprisingly good mix of bands today! In the end, Stanley got my vote; hadn’t checked out the new Satanic Warmaster yet, but that track convinced me to change this situation immediately. Very close one today.

    • Stanley

      You know it makes sense.

  • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

    Just a suggestion, but you should do a drum riff of the week. Not sure how it would work but I think that would be killer.

    • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

      That would be cool.

      • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

        Yeah, maybe like a drum solo section of a song or just a beat in general?

        • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

          Best use of fills?

          • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

            Exactly!

          • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

            You got me thinking here now of drum fill sections in songs.

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            It would be pretty challenging to narrow it down.

          • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

            Definitely. I’d be curious to see what everyone digs up though for that particular riff of the week post.

          • Suck Me While I Poo

            Love this song, but I’d submit it just for the lolbuttz drumming.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq85tXSaiSo

    • HessianHunter

      We did it before, but a part 2 would be niccccceeee.

      • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

        I don’t remember that. I’m usually not involved here during the weekends anyways.

    • Zeke

      drum riff would be fun. Also maybe Grind of the week? Slam of the week?

    • Pagliacci is Kvlt

      How about most incomprehensible vocals of the week? Submitter must provide proof there are actual lyrics.

      • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

        Wow, that’s a solid idea.

        • Kevin Nash & Friends

          We should do a best classic rock riff. There’s so many good ones and I could probably win without trying.

          • Le Tapir The Based

            I’m not sure about that tbh.

          • Boz Nü-Djent ™

            Just like you were meant to romp it home with the nu metal ROTW?

      • I know what Links pick would be!

      • Void Dweller

        Good luck with Obituary.

    • Mother Shabubu 4

      Easy; whoever picks Jimmy Chamberlain or Danny Carey wins.

  • Suck Me While I Poo

    Mine didn’t get submitted?!? (and I sent it a week ago) *shakes tiny fists in the air*

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

    • Le Tapir The Based

      You didn’t read the fine print that says “no weebs allowed.”

      • Suck Me While I Poo

        You guys have a funny definition of weeb! It’s Japanese, so automatically weeb?

        • Le Tapir The Based

          By weeb I meant you, not the band.

          • Suck Me While I Poo

            Hehe! Lol, check out that video. The guy’s vocals are hilarious.

    • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS
      • Suck Me While I Poo

        Damn, haven’t heard this in forever!

    • Suck Me While I Poo

      *as JJD appears in a cloud of incense and smoke*

      • more beer

        He is not allowed to burn incense. He would be at risk of cancer from the second hand smoke.

        • Kevin Nash & Friends

          I don’t burn incense because I don’t have a need to. If I was a stoner I would because I’d have to hide the pot smoke smell.

          • Nineinchneurosis

            That’s what outside is for.

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            That’s a good point.

    • Kevin Nash & Friends

      Yay, Trower!

  • Today my vote is for #TeamHowardDean. United while throwing bolts. Pium pium pium.

    That break in 3:48… Distroyer.

  • Bitter (Tyree) Debra
    • Suck Me While I Poo

      RIP!

  • Stanley

    I’ll go for Vegglampe. Not heard of these guys before but the riff reminder me of Ajattara and that was good enough for me.

    http://youtu.be/JhqGb_thhp0

  • Lacertilinger

    Unoriginal @joethrashnkill:disqus picks such low hanging fruit.
    C’mon man, Mammoth Grinder, really?

  • Malted Hate

    I usually don’t pay attention to live recordings of unreleased songs, but a friend just showed me this and it sounds very exciting:
    start at roughly 17:30
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIFa3jgVm7U

    • Bitter (Tyree) Debra

      Fuck, I don’t think I’ve seen this video. Thanks man.

      • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

        Kinda weird that no one submitted them, actually.

    • Malted Hate

      two new songs in a row BTW

    • CT-12

      First song sounded dope, second song is sounding fucking amazing. Shit’s getting me stoked.

      • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

        I hope I pleased you with my thrash offering, m’lord.

        • CT-12

          Yes, very much sir! I’ve never really listened to Accuser before but that song was badass. And currently, you have been making your presence in my current playlist: I’ve mainly just been listening to NIN and Death Karma the past week. Twas a good week.

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            That’s the kinda week I can get behind. That whole Accuser album is pretty solid.

  • Between The Buried & Smee
    • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

      Hopefully we get a new Chance album this year

      • Between The Buried & Smee

        He did do that Social Experiment album this year, but its been so long since an actual Chance release.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt
    • Kevin Nash & Friends

      I do approve.

  • OH SHIT BOLT THROWER

  • ME GORAK™

    NEXT WEEK BLACK SABBATH WEEK???

    • tertius_decimus

      There will be at least 2 Black Sabbath submissions.

  • EsusMoose

    In 2 weeks July shall be over so we should have a riff ov July and based off any riff of the month so we’re bound to have some good things unlike a weekly one but this too could fail miserably.

  • Paris Hilton

    Best ER band? A Day To Remember imo

  • tertius_decimus

    ME VOTE GORAK!!! VIER REITER STEHEN BEREIT!

  • Suck Me While I Poo
  • Suck Me While I Poo

    I thought this would be an obvious pick. *tisk tisk*

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoqxlY5Pa9U

  • Paris Hilton

    There’s a lot of bands end with th if u have a lisp. Kith, Cannabith Corpth, Exoduth, Woods of Ypreth, or In Flameth

  • Lacertilinger

    I think the link to my video is broken..

  • KJM
    • Pagliacci is Kvlt

      I wondered who she was. She’s pretty bleak.

      • KJM

        Her “character” on the show looks like she spends her days getting the crap beat out of her, and then spends her evenings at the club singing about it.

  • KJM
  • Howard Dean

    Did I pick some low hanging fruit? Sure. But I can’t be the guy that yells “Bolt Thrower” all the time and not submit them. Plus, “World Eater” is one of the best DM songs ever with one of the greatest and most iconic riffs ever.

    WORLD… EEEATTTTTTEEERRR!!!!!

  • john

    sweeeet my first post lives. Vote you heathens, VOTE.

  • Shrimp in a Pizza Box OV HELL

    I can’t actually listen to any of these because my headphones broke so I’m just going to vote for Bolt Thrower without listening to anything.

  • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

    Stanley gets my vote because I would’ve voted for HD had the drums not ruined the riff

  • KJM

    Oh, and thanks for the pic of Ming-Na Wen and Alex Kingston.

    • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

      Pervert

  • JW(E)G

    Bands that end in ‘th’?

    For whatever reason, I can only think of Maeth. And frankly, that should have been everyone else’s response. I look forward to seeing how far off everyone is next week.

    Likewise, it appears I’m 2 for 3 in my predictions of bands that would be included this week (I guess whoever entered Vader was late). I’m 1 for 1 in my predictions of bands that wouldn’t because I was too lazy to do it myself though (Exciter):

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWEDeBJ8_Iw

    • EsusMoose

      I have 3-4 groups I can think of

      • JW(E)G

        Granted, if I think a bit harder – and look at my collection – I can find a half a dozen more, and that’s not even including the obvious (Black Sabbath).

        I just generally pick the first one that comes to mind instead of second-guessing myself (hence above: Exciter).

        • EsusMoose

          I may go with your approach but I’m gonna consider us as the audience and what would garner the most votes.

      • Suck Me While I Poo

        I already knew Bolt Thrower would be in there, because Howard Dean and stuff lol.

  • Stanley

    Can next weeks riff off the week be about bands that end in “ła”?

  • Óðinn

    A band not many have heard of, Slayer. 😉

    I’ve always loved the simple riffs at the beginning of this song. Slayer used to open their live live show with this song, and it would make the crowd go nuts when the live went up and Slayer began the show. I know Slayer gets a lot of shit for being repetitive these days, but they actually were one of a kind and they were innovators back in the day.

    • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

      Hey, haven’t seen you around much. I hope all is well.

      • Óðinn

        Hey W.

        All is well. Been busy of late. Glad to be back in the toilet. I hope you are doing well.

  • Vegglampe

    I have no recollection whatsoever of submitting anything for this ROTW. The song was new even for when it suddenly appeared in my spotify playlists this week.

  • Kevin Nash & Friends

    I read a really good article over at FFB defending funk metal. I’m impressed with the writer because he’s like me.
