Greatest Metallica RiffsZezerex
The Top Ten
This song, fade to black, Through the never, sad but true, and Enter sandman are my favorite Metallica Songs. They are my favorite band. I love Metallica!
Ok, I agree this is the best, but where's Orion! It deserves to be in this list, it's an epic riff by Cliff Burton
I can listen to this over a thousand times and still not get bored of it.
I definitely loved Master of Puppets, but the main riff in Blackened and Battery are better in my opinion... and so is the darkness imprisoning me riff in One and the die by my hand riff in Creeping Death
My favourite by miles! But I am a romantic.
Disposable Heroes by far has the best bass riffs ever, but Fade To Black has completely angelic riffs. I cannot stop listening to this song for those acoustic riffs.
The music really speaks to me, when I hear fade to black it strikes a chord deep inside of my soul, almost as if the song was written about me, as though "Metallica" wrote the song for me..
Although Master and Blackened are really fast and heavy, I'd have to say this one wins it for me. It's just so amazing!
Way better than One. One isn't even a good song. Fade to Black and Master of Puppets rule!V 4 Comments
This is by far one of the most epic Metallica riffs. The riff as a really evil and heavy sound to it. and you can't beat the bass solo at the begginning.
This is the best riff ever, despite I don't think that this is my favourite song... Forever FTBT!
Personally I think this riff is a bit overratedV 1 Comment
this song kicks ass they shred the guitar with some kick ass solo's this songs should at least be #2
unstoppable is the only word that comes to my mind when I listen to this riff
The main riff in Blackened is my favorite riff of all time... by anyone!
Have to agree! 👌🤘💙 Its definitely one of my favorite Metallica songs...Especially played live and loud with the drums! ❤❤❤.
Oh come on! This has one of Metallica's most epic intros as well as one of their best solos!
Amazing intro, amazing solo, amazing lyrics... amazing song. Before vote for master of puppets or enter sandman, listen all this amazing kick ass songs.
The main riff, and the Die riff are the best that James and Kirk have come up with. - Intelligenza
Riff before solo is Awesome! Sometimes I regret that Dave Mustaine has been kicked out of Metallica...
This song has several riffs, all of them are great. Yeah the intro riff is nice, but I think the variation of the main riff that plays immediately after the solo is the best, and it's one of my favorite guitar riffs ever, just because of how heavy it sounds.
One of the best riffs ever... Simply beautiful
It surely belongs in the top 10 list.
This song has the best riff definitely. I mean, this is not the best song of Metallica, and others of the first stuff are better, but the heavy riff of SBT is absolutely fantstic and amazing, with an aggressive solo by Kirk Hammett!
Metallica had never used drop D tuning before, but they knocked it out of the park in one swing with the riff in this song.
The verse riff defines what thrash metal is: crushingly hard, blindingly fast and definitely unstoppable.
The beginning riff is just amazing!
Aggression, power, unstoppable, invincible, incredible. 5 words that describe how I feel when I hear this song. The clean riff in the intro and the heavy version of that riff may be simple but very very very powerful and pure heavy metal! Probably my favorite 'Tallica song.
The riff is awesome. Just like this song. Criminally underrated song. - Metarock
The world's darkest heaviest riff.
Cliff all the way rip hetfield is a god because the way his guitar is on this one I mean just listen to it
Some kind of monster in top 10, sorry I'm just laughing.
Seriously, to live is to die riffs are the last cliff's riffs so that just can be number 1 haha
This iconic metallica song should be at least number 3!
What!? This songs has the best riffs ever! Too underrated :o
At least top 5
Leading up to the solo is one of the greatest riffs of all time to be honest
That fast riff that starts at 4 minutes just blows my mind every time I listen to it! I LOVE IT!
The fast riff that starts at half of the song is BEAST!
Reload is really underrated man!
This song along with the rest of the album is pure genius stuff!
So simple but really heavy and fun to play -
The riff that starts around half way through the song is just incredible, their best in my opinion. Don't know why they don't play this song more live.
The main riff has an awesome groove
Why is there so little Kill 'em All on this list? I mean half of those riffs were written by Dave Mustaine (who is a far better riff writer than james or kirk) and they all sound amazing
Really simple riff, but so effective! Maybe not the best, but I think it deserves to be in the top ten.
Have you heard the riff at 2:56-3:07?!
One of the best riffs in Metallica's collection.
Yes, Dave Mustaine wrote the riff, but remember he was a part of Metallica at some point of time. Unfortunately for him, this song came out first so he had to increase the tempo for the Mechanix.
A very underrated Thrash Metal Classic
How is this not even on the list?! Listen to the insanely brilliant riffs before voting please. Fade To Black is a good song, but please, the riffs are definitely not one of the best. The guitars in this song is one of the best in Metallica's history. Vote for this to keep the metal gods happy
