Where is it, exactly? No one really knows, but it’s no question that some killer riffs have come out of South America, wherever it may be. Let’s jam some of them. 

Last week – what the fuck, guys? Deafhaven swill beat out deadly riffs from Rotting ChristTimeghoul, SinmaraBolt Thrower, and CELTIC FUCKING FROST. Eleven of you should be ashamed. Damn you. Damn every single one of you. Consider this my note.

dead

Luckily you all made up for this atrocity this week. This is one of the best collections of riffs we’ve had yet. Well chosen (even if there are a few repeats)!

Next week:

  • It’s that time again, folks. We’re gonna do SOLO OV THE WEEK once more.
  • Send your solo to toiletovhellriff@gmail.com. Include your name, a link to the video, the time of the solo, and an explanation.
  • If you have an idea for a theme, let me know.
  • Seriously, damn you all.

 

Masterlord

Wash that Deafhaven out of your butt with some downright hostile Chilean death-thrashing destruction. 0:00.

 

Joe

I don’t know shit about this band but I ended up listening to this album three times while seeking out sweet Souf American riffz. 2:56.

 

W.

The riff that comes in at 1:20 is about as simple as you can get, but I guarantee it will get your bunda bouncing.

 

KJU

One of Brazil’s best, and IMHO most underrated bands. The riffs/weedly deedlies start pretty much from the get go.

 

Tigeraid

South America? Well duh, Sepultura. But I’d rather go with my recent Brazilian fetish, Violator. Scenarios of Brutality was one of my fav albums of 2013, and this tune kills. Check out this chugging, thrashy goodness from the beginning, followed a the super-fast tempo change at 0:36.

 

Pagliacci Is Kvlt

Downfall of Nur hails from Argentina and plays the sort of blend of atmospheric/folky/trees ‘n shit black metal that tickles my pickle. This album will no doubt appear in my AOTY top 10 list. The submitted riff is slow, simple, and sinister and comprises the first track of the album (titled “Intro,” duh) spanning from 0:00-2:35, and it eventually reprises at the very end of the album.

 

Ted Nü-Djent

Wanted to choose a less obvious band but Sepultura’s “Troops Of Doom”? Come on! The only problem now is which riff to pick in the song? I’ll go with opening riff (though it’s hard to go against this one too) and I’ll also choose a clip from one of the greatest live DVD’s of all time. Riff starts after Max introduces the song at about 15 seconds in.

 

 SuperNintendoChalmers

I’m cheating with this submission, this song actually contains two monster riffs within the confines of its three minute playing time. You have the opening 37 second mark riff that stomps on your head and sets the behemoth tenacity of this song off in a slow momentum building march. At the 2:50 minute mark, the songs reaches apex, a searing riff cutting down the masses like a giant, unforgiving scythe. This was Sepultura before the mid 90s tropes and futbol anthem cliches. This was the bulletbelt and white high tops version of Sepultura that gave us at least this masterpiece of thrash.


Lacertilian

As I had already used “Troops Of Doom” for Joe’s crazy riff from 1:30 on a band’s debut theme, I was tempted to submit some Saturndust space doom but after Dagon showed me this album earlier in the year I had a plan B(R). Riff starts after 2:30.

 

365 Chaos Ridden Days

It’s raw, vicious and vitriolic for your damned soul. This bastard starts at 2:07.

 

Stanley

Satan Rebellion Metal is currently my favorite thrash release of the year. It’s rip-roaring from start to finish and these Chilean bruisers sure know how to bring aggression and intensity. The riff at 1:33 in “Bringers of Armageddon” says it all.

 

Gorak

MORTEM GREAT BAND FROM PERU!!!! 0:24.

 

Maik Beninton

Time to die.

  • Lacertilian

    Sinmara lost?
    I’m done.

    • JJM

      Only logical explanation: Joe skyped Grand Wizard George Clarke and had him work some magic at the poll.

      • Lacertilian

        I’m completely mystified.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I don’t remember who I voted for.

    • Even the Richter Contingent’s vote was not powerful enough to push Sinmara through, I’m affraid.

      /selvmord

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Buttzheaven

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Nobody doesn’t like Deafheaven really, they just think they don’t.

    • A malicious rumor.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I can’t confirm nor deny that Deafheaven is a favorite of mine.

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    Sorry W

    • KJM

      Ah, this answers my question. Aren’t there browser add-ons that can get around this?

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        Probably, but 12.50am and I couldn’t be fucked to find out. I’m off to bed.

        • Lacertilian

          Was blocked for me too but just looking at your screencap it seems Dubs has submitted The Chasm anyway.
          They’re from Mexico, was this the rustling @maikbeninton:disqus was referring to?

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            That goes to show how good I am with song titles. I have that song in my collection :/

  • Lacertilian

    Invincible Force wins the Lizard vote this week.
    I’ll leave it at that.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      If I vote for SuperNintendo, am I voting for myself?

      • Lacertilian

        I vote N64 over SNES.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          Yes it is

          • Lacertilian

            It doesn’t even say Blocked In Your Country for me.
            There are 2 or 3 on here that just say “Not Available”.

  • KJM

    Don’t blame me, Masterpants. I voted for CF.

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    Fuck it, I’m voting Super Nintendo. You have good taste sir.

    • Super Nintendo Chalmers

      So the same song is basically in there twice. We can be double winners.

  • Maik Beninton™
  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    If I were going to vote solely based on description alone I’d probably vote for Joe “I don’t know shit about this band” lol

  • ME GORAK B.C.™

    GORAK VOTE BEST KOREA MAN!!!!!

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Splendid riffs all round chaps! Winner will be a decision not made lightly.

        • CT-12

          That song pulled me in and wouldn’t fucking let go. A really great and tough roundup of riffs this week!

          • Jock Strap Full O Beef Stew

            That whole CD (Defying The Rules) is pretty much like that. Whole lotta buncha weedly deedlies going on, and the vocals never let up.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HqCB0T0h08

          • CT-12

            This sounds fucking killer too. Would you recommend their newest album? I see it’s on bandcamp and I’m tempted to get it (I’m such an instant gratification douche haha).

          • Jock Strap Full O Beef Stew

            Their whole catalog is solid as hell. Defying The Rules is their best one, IMHO, but the new one is also really good too. Some of the songs sound like a power metal version of Extreme.

          • CT-12

            Nevermind, just saw it’s on AmazonMP3 for $7, hell yeah!

  • Nativian Taco
    • Lacertilian

      This was posted during the week and I thought for sure someone would have submitted it. Would have been a strong chance for the title.

  • Jock Strap Full O Beef Stew

    Some filthy, grimy Peruvian death metal mixed with Peruvian/Incan folk music.

    They were all mediocre or bad.

  • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

    It feels so gud outside

    • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

      Doggie update: phoenix ate half a cookie cake yesterday. Shes pretty messed up rite now

      #doglivesmatter

      • KJM

        Aww, gud doge.

        • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

          Shes been prrtty much poisoned. Shes all swole up and puffy looking and throwing up her food

          • KJM

            Hopefully she’ll feel better once she passes it all.

          • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

            If she gets thru tonight she’ll be fine

  • Super Nintendo Chalmers

    Kind of surprised that no one submitted Sarcofago or Inquisition as a lololbuttheyliveintheusatho option.

    • Maik Beninton™

      I was going to submit a Sarcofago but that would be sort of obvious.

      • Super Nintendo Chalmers

        Their riffs are glorious so in this case fucking being an obvious pleb.

      • Super Nintendo Chalmers

        Also I kind of wish I had submitted something off of this.

        https://youtu.be/KY_x8U_Dh7M

        • Lacertilian

          The vocals kinda spoil it for me but there’s definitely some riffage in there.

  • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS
  • *Votes Stan Lee*

  • Óðinn

    How about 80s Thrash Riff of the Week?
    Or 90s Death Metal Riff of the Week?

    Apologies if it’s already been done.

    • ^^^^I’ve got nothing for these either, I fear. Other than to cop out and submit Gorguts . . .

      • Óðinn

        Gorguts is good.

        • Gorguts is goodguts.

          • Óðinn

            Yes, it is.

      • Óðinn

        I’d suggest Hipster Metal Riff of the Week, but Masterlord already hung himself, so maybe not the best idea.

        • He may be deceased, but we can always force him to do cartwheels in his grave . . .

        • KJM

          We’ll get a Necromancer to revive him.

        • more beer

          Do you know what we called hipsters in the 80`s? Victims! Sort of like today!

  • Best riff of 2015 thus far??? Anyone?

    • Óðinn

      Yeah, not bad at all. The South America requirement probably forced thoughtful choices.

      • I had nothing.

      • Jock Strap Full O Beef Stew

        It just made me skim through my mental Rolodex of South American metal.

    • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

      That Maruta album. That Blind Guardian, that new Def Turban, that new Ahab, that new Kamelot, that new Eternal Valley, that new mgla, that new unleash the archers, that new nile, that new weedeater, how much time do we have

  • Jock Strap Full O Beef Stew

    Woohoo, I’m almost in first place for once! *resists urge to upvote myself*

    • KJM

      Don’t pull a JJD!

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I’m confused as to what that references.

        • KJM

          Upvoting yourself.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I should have known.

    • Lacertilian

      You said below that’d you’d already voted for @maikbeninton:disqus

      • Jock Strap Full O Beef Stew

        Haha I know.

  • 365chaosriddendays

    My vote goes to Ted Nü-Djent again, like I did last week, It wasn’t easy thinking about posts by Masterlord, Pagliacci and Tigeraid but the old Sepultura are very infectious!

  • Jock Strap Full O Beef Stew

    In other news, Killing Joke has a new video out! *boner intensifies*

  • Stanley

    Wow. It’s very late and it looks like it’s MasterLord and Paggy are tied with 6 each. I could be a complete cock and pick Paggy as MasterCopy out-shined my bestest riff, but I’m a team player and Invincible Force kill stuff! Hail Chile!

  • Waynecro

    I was going to submit the main riff from Krisiun’s “Soul Devourer” for this one, but I never got around to it. That riff has been stuck in my head since 2000.
