Songs with the Best Guitar Solo and Riffs

Arhaan95
In my short span as an enthusiastic Metalhead...these are the riffs I've heard until now that has been stuck in my head.....I may have missed some. These are not my top ten favourites as there are plethora of them and ranking them would be backbreaking..

The Top Ten

1 Kings of the Carnival Creation - Dimmu Borgir
2 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son - Iron Maiden
3 Blackbird - Alter Bridge
4 Rising Force - Yngwie Malmsteen
5 Schizos (Are Never Alone) Parts I & II - Annihilator
6 Akroasis - Obscura

I'm gonna check this band out...Any suggestions which album to start off with... - Arhaan95

@Arhaan95 - I like all their albums but perhaps Akroasis is the most accessible so it's good to start with it. Cosmogenesis is probably the heaviest, and Omnivium is the most complex. However, there aren't big differences between them - all these 3 albums are close to perfection. - Metal_Treasure

7 Windowpane - Opeth
8 A Light in the Black - Rainbow
9 Cirice - Ghost
10 Alison Hell - Annihilator

The Contenders

11 Raining Blood - Slayer
12 Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage
13 Orion - Metallica
14 Kissing the Shadows - Children of Bodom
15 Floods - Pantera
16 Highway Star - Deep Purple
17 Ride the Sky - Helloween
18 Clocks - Coldplay
19 Phantasmagoria - Annihilator
20 Carolyn - Black Veil Brides

Your reaction is totally expected! Black Veil Brides...It's not metal...they suck...OK! I dig the melody here. - Arhaan95

21 Downfall - Children of Bodom
22 Flying Whales - Gojira
23 Lazarus - Porcupine Tree
24 The Czar - Mastodon
25 Realm of a Thousand Burning Souls (Part 1) - Lord Belial Realm of a Thousand Burning Souls (Part 1) - Lord Belial

I'm not much of a person who readily exhibits emotions...but that section from the penultimate stage through the final after a lengthy pause impacted me like a thousand of bricks crashing on my head...For me, good music is not solely about technicalities or skillfulness but whether it triggers feelings and emotions is a primary concern... - Arhaan95
