THE RIFF WHICH MADE YOU WANT TO PLAY THE GUITAR IS?
Oh man, totally Into the Void by Sabbath. Shame that I had no idea what dropped tunings were and tried to play it and standard when I was starting out haha.
WHAT IS THE FIRST RIFF YOU LEARNED TO PLAY? Smoke on the Water... gotta be almost everyone, am I right?
YOUR TOP THREE METAL RIFFERS ARE? David DiSanto from Vektor... absolute master of what he does and if you haven't checked them out DO IT! Jus Oborn from Electric Wizard is another big one to me, if you're into doom you're probably already into The Wizard, but if not pack some 'erbs and chill out. Last but certainly not least, Andy La Roque from King Diamond is just a machine. Everything he comes up with is pure gold.
WHO IS THE MASTER OF THE RIFF? Without a shadow of a doubt, Tony Iommi from Sabbath. We are not worthy.
THE RIFF WHICH IS THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR LIFE IS? The chorus riff of "Serenade of Lead" by Asphyx. So heavy.
THE RIFF YOU WISH YOU WROTE IS?
The main riff to "Forever My Queen" by
THE WORST METAL RIFF EVER IS? I have one opinion but I'd get axed for sharing... so let's just say something from Bullet for My Valentine.
RIFF FOR RIFF YOUR FIVE FAVOURITE ALBUMS ARE? 1. Dopethrone (Electric Wizard 2. Black Sabbath (Black Sabbath) 3. Killing Machine/Hellbent for Leather (Judas Priest) 4. Van Halen (Van Halen) 5. Satan Worshipping Doom (Bongripper)
A NON METALHEAD ASKS YOU WHAT DOES METAL SOUND LIKE, THE RIFF YOU PLAY THEM IS? Painkiller, straight up. No mercy.
THE RIFF YOU WANT PLAYED AT YOUR FUNERAL IS? Probably the main riff from Funeralopolis by Electric Wizard.
WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT RIFFS ANYWAY? They are the perfect compliment to a haze of beer and smoke.
