For a band that aren't even strictly a metal band, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard write some great riffs

More groove metal than outright metal, but they’re my favourite band, so of course I’m going to lead with them. Chose this one because it’s SO fiddly to play. Ty never does what’s easy.



Obviously Iommi has to be here, and this is one of my favourites.



And then my thrash heritage:









And some other favourites:

Hey Outrunner, I was going to put The Last Time too - fantastic song, but I figured I’d listed enough already! Did you know Paradise Lost have got a new album out? They’re really back to their doomy best with the last three albums.

Yeah, I gave it a listen this morning actually, I was really impressed. Generally I'm not into heavier bands but Paradise Lost is one of the exceptions

Crimson and Crimson II have so many great recurring riffs throughout.

I got really into the Powerslave album a few years ago. I’ve said this before and been jumped on for it - Maiden swing wildly in quality not just from album to album but from song to song in some places. However, when they’re on it, they make some of the best riffs in the industry. :wub:

Always loved this opening riff.

Also the video features knitting, which is nice.
