Riff Of The Week: As Pictured Edition
Riffs from Pallbearer, Lantern, Anaal Nathrakh, Scumstrike, and Forced Entry.
Last week our theme was 2nd songs from 2nd albums. While it was a close battle between new & old, hot & cold, North & South, foot & mouth, etc. Iced Earth‘s classic took down Disentomb‘s modern monstrosity.
This week our theme was simply the header image above
Here’s what you sent in…
Anaal Nathrakh – “I Am the Wrath of Gods and the Desolation of the Earth” (Riff @ 0:00)
What else could be going through the head of someone who would do that to a public stall’s toilet paper?
Iron Goddess of Mercy
Pallbearer – “Dancing in Madness” (Riff @ 6:09)
“When all but night has gone / And hands are filled with dust /There’s no one else who can take the blame /For these deeds are yours alone”
Skumstrike – ‘The Lie’ (Riff @ 1:19)
First associations were along the lines of “weird” and “unexpected.” Much as I like the style, a crust band with actual riffs is always unexpected. Maybe that makes these guys weird? I dunno. It’s pretty good shit though. Drops on Valentine’s Day.
Forced Entry – ‘How We Spent Our Summer Vacation’ (Riff @ 0:38)
Theme this week seems like something you would do if you were to pursue the desire to: “Get fucked up”
Lantern – ‘Cleansing The Air’ (Riff @ 0:00)
Uhh…was revisiting this one during the week and I guess that song title fits thematically here.
Next week’s theme is riffs from bands you’re expecting a release from in 2020
