Riff ov the Week: Hey, what gives?

I got like three riffs this week.

I get it, it’s been a busy week, but I refuse to run a post of a meager three riffs, and I really think good ol’ Joe’s theme idea is a great way for us to share new-ish finds, so I’m giving you another week to round up a pick. If you need a refresher, here’s Joe’s theme:

Next week is a new year, so I want riffs from new bands. Submit riffs from bands that have not yet put out a full-length album. Send your riffs to toiletovhellriff@gmail.com. Include your name, a link to the riff, the time of the riff, and an explanation for your riff. If you have any ideas for a future theme, let me know in the comments or via email.

I expect an ungodly firestorm of riffs to rain down on my email address between now and next Saturday. Don’t let the toilet down. I know someone who might just fill his mouth with acid for the express purpose of expectorating the bubbling fluid onto the entirety of your unsuspecting face.

Today you can use this as an open thread, or you can even have your own little knock-off riff contest in the comment section. Have a good Saturday, folks.

SEND ME RIFFS.

    • ME GORAK B.C.™

      NOW GORAK DRINK SIX PACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Adam Cigarroa

        It better not be a POS beer

  • Eliza

    Well, it’s hard to find songs from artists who haven’t an album yet.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Go to Metal-Archives and scour through the thousands of unsigned bedroom black metal bands.

      • Eliza

        OK, then.

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        Can we find your NSBM project there?

        • Hey Tapir, I’ve never asked you this, but what is your opinion on Acid Bath?

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Sounds like a poor idea to me. Why would you want to bathe in acid?

          • So you can end up looking like me!

        • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

          You can also find my USOSNSBM project there

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            You cannot find my Humppa project there.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            You can also find my Space Stoner Doom side project Rick Sanchez Blues.

          • Boss the Albatross Ross

            I want to listen.

          • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

            The USO has a metla band? #BringTheBoysHomeCore

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          All but one.

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      Remember, EPs are not considered full albums for the purposes of this RoTW(I think).

      • Eliza

        That males things easier.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    The Dragon of Kätkävaara wants to have a word with you.

  • Stanley

    Nice lead riff at 4:10. Bye.

    http://youtu.be/w_WL0Ut3X8U

    • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

      I like dis, stanbro

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      I would’ve put this on my Top 10, but I decided against EPs and all.
      Very good.

      • Stanley

        Yep. Same could be said of Sadistic Ritual’s Edge of the Knife. There are some killer riffs on that EP.

        • Stanley

          Somebody should submit a riff from the SR EP. You’ll probably win. I see quite a few Toileteer fisogs on bandcamp. Any of you would be worthy winners.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          And Vorum.
          In fact, there were a ton of good Eps this year. More than usually, for my money – I think.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    I’m mad at Megadeth. They said that there was going to be a cover of Melt The Ice Away by Budgie on the new album. Why did they replace it with a cover of Foreign Policy by Fear? I’d rather hear the Budgie cover instead of an obvious cover of a song attacking the government.

    • EsusMoose

      Mustaine attacking the government? That doesn’t sound right.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I wanted to hear that Budgie cover. I guess I never will now. At least the new songs were good.

        • ME GORAK B.C.™

          GORAK THING NEW ALBUM SO FAR, SO GOOD, (SO WHAT)!!!!!!!! EXCEPT VOCALS SOUND WEIRD!!!!!! COVER PROBABLY GONNA SHOW UP ON YOO TUBE SOON!!!!!!!!

          • I just wanna hear the title track and ‘Poisonous Shadows’. I think those are gonna be some pretty good Megadeth songs.

        • I think it’s on one of the ten special editions…

        • pïgchop™

          Budgie cover will be on some version of the album – ancient Japanese, super secret release…or something like that.

          • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

            We’re talking about Megadeth, not Marty ‘Weeblord’ Friedman.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        EsusMoose plz!

    • Expecting good things from megadeth is like expecting poo to smell like mint chocolate chip ice cream

      • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

        I’ll check out the new one simply because Kiko, my favorite guitarist from my favorite band, is on there. If Dave fucks that up, I’m done with Megaderp.

    • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

      Because Dave’s warning you about Obama curmin’ ta take away yer guns, coal roll, and freedom! And that everyone you know is a member of ISIS who voted for Obama.

  • EsusMoose

    I don’t think I listen to any group who hasn’t put out a full length, there was Ur Draugr but now I’m just gonna go sit with in the poser corner.

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    The riff that starts out this song is DANK.

    https://soundcloud.com/thronesoundcloud/two-worlds

  • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

    I didnt submit one because the one i had picked was submitted the week before.

    This also seems like a theme tailormade for Tyree

  • Salvador Dalí Lama

    No one ever votes for my shit, so I’m sulking like a child and talking my riffs home.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Maybe you should offer better shit???

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        I’ve always got the good shit… (koff koff)

      • Salvador Dalí Lama

        This is why people like capybara better.

    • Rejoice in obscurity.

    • Lacertilian

      Is it really about winning?

      • Óðinn

        You sometimes find a new song you like, and sometimes hear a song you’ve not heard in a while.

      • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

        Yes!!! This is a battle to the death!

      • Salvador Dalí Lama

        If you ain’t first, you ain’t nothin’.

    • Óðinn

      I don’t think I’ve won riff ov the week either. I’m better at photochop. I’ll still try rotw though.

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        I’ve won both once.

  • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

    Heres an idea for a theme: a riff thats the only good part of the song. The one riff is good and the rest of the song sucks. Did we do that already?

    • ME GORAK B.C.™

      LIKE WHIFF OV WEEK?????????

      • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

        The opposite of whiff of the week, in that theres actually one good part!

    • I support this idea.

  • 365ChaosRiddenDays
    • Lacertilian

      A few weeks ago I spent an entire work day listening solely to Kreator.
      So much nostalgia in those riffs!

  • KJM, Shake Zula
    • KJM, Shake Zula

      (Picard facepalm)
      I like the video where the woman is obviously repulsed by him groping her while he “sings”.

      • Voice cracks*

      • Max

        I like where she’s dancing on the bridge while holding her ‘phone, and then she abruptly stops because (almost out of shot) the bridge comes to an end.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      This one has a better flow.

    • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

      Is he having a stroke?!?

      • Nope. That’s just his natural singing voice…and I find it to be beautiful. This guy’s gonna go places.

        • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

          Well, he’s already been on Tosh.O’s ‘Web Redemption’, which isn’t exactly something to be proud of.

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    I would like to take a moment to use the Open Swim-ness of this thread to remind you all that it’s my birthday – the second to occur while I could mention it on this excellent site/community.

  • Did not submit a riff because I don’t listen to any bands that don’t have full albums yet because I haven’t heard them yet because they haven’t put out an album for me to hear yet these guidelines are too narrow and I’m not cult enough to know of any bands who are bands but have not released anything yet and I don’t get out to support my local music scene of unsigned bands because Arizona is full of shitty bands who play music that is not cult so I don’t support them so, to refresh, Myah!

    • You’re lying through your teeth, fuckhole. You just looked at your bandcamp collection and you’ve already submitted two riffs this year from bands without full length albums–plus there are a couple more on there, so pick one, submit it, and shut your whore mouth.

      • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

        SHUT YOUR PIG MOUTH

      • Lacertilian

        I’m fairly sure you have heard the band I submitted during the week.

        • Not knowing which band to whom you refer, I cannot say with any degree of certainty whether or not I should be fairly certain that I have heard them as well. (Sadness prevails.)

          • Lacertilian

            I would tell you which band but the fear of having a potential win usurped is too great.
            Think Iceland..

          • I would never attempt to usurp your win, assuming whatever you submit is even capable of securing a win, and also assuming that your fear of usurpation (?) implies that you fear it would indeed be me that would usurp your win, as opposed to some lurking fucktwat who read your comment and then submitted the same exact song to the contest, in which case at worst the win would be split 50/5 betwixt yourself and said lurking fucktwat, and by now I’ve forgotten what the fuck this sentence is about, the subject and predicate are lost, we’re adrift in a quantum sea of whateverment, good night, good luck . . . wait, is it Nadra?

          • Lacertilian

            Not Nadra.

          • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

            Bjork?

    • Honkey’s Xmas On The Top Bunk

      Ever consider decaf? ^^^^^^^^^

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        People that drink decaf deserve death

        • Catastrophic Buttsekx

          Interesting enough, Naugahyde is used in decaf. Which is also used in embalming fluid.
