Top 10 Darkest Sounding Guitar Riffs
The Top Ten
Come on, the songs above aren't half as dark as this. This sounds more evil and dark than the above combined.
Oh, come on! This is easily the most evil sounding riff of all time! What is it doing at 7?
This is the darkest riff of all time and it's number eight?
Number 4 seriously
Specifically once he sings the long looowww and the beat picks up
Just sounds evil. - Brobusky
This sounds more ceremonial than dark to me. - Alkadikce
This is the best thing about the song - zxm
I love this song - 2storm
Black Sabbath - A National Acrobat almost the same - Alkadikce
Lol, black metal is the darkest genre in the world of music and de mysteriis dom sathanas is one of the darkest cover of black metal and children who don't know what this genre is, vote metallica, black sabbath, slayer, pink floyd and led zeppelin? I am still laughing
The title song possesses much more darker tone... - Arhaan95
Sounds like a sacrificing ritual
Two devils intervals. - Caleb9000
Nirvana ripped off the riff and several other things from the song Eighties by Killing Joke. - Metal_Treasure
On the live version from California 1974 sounds even darker and more demonic. - Metal_Treasure
The riff in the second half. - Metal_Treasure
The slower riff in the beginning is just the same as the South of Heaven riff sped up and a few notes swapped in it. Is it just me, or the other riff is justvthe same chord 100 times per second? - Alkadikce
A song about a superficial sugarbabe... and the guitar sounds like Satan played it.
PS: There's also an English version (in poor English) called "Little Princess". Even though the topic is the same, the quality of the lyrics tragically decreased in the translation.
Here, for example, the chorus:
German (literal translation):
"Yes, little princess, you got it easy / your parents are damn rich / you are oh so beautiful / you want to drive every guy crazy / yes, little princess, you have power / You are the queen of the night / you are young and beautiful / and every a--hole wants to be with you"
"Little princess got it made / with your million dollar face / yes you're hot and daddy's rich / but you're one shallow b*mbo bit / little princess you the bomb / your priorities gone wrong / everybody joins your dance / just to get inside your pants"
The translation is way more vulgar and in the verses, she ...more - Martin_Canine
