Top 10 Canadian Metal Songs with the Best Riffs


The Top Ten

1 Schizos (Are Never Alone) Parts I & II - Annihilator

I usually avoid putting more than one song per band in my top 10 but sometimes this isn't correct because some better items are left outside the top 10.
This top 10 is an exception because I don't see reasons to put some better riffs lower than they deserve - Annihilator riffs are just awesome. Jeff Waters is among the best metal riff masters out there. - Metal_Treasure
