Riff Of The Week: S Edition


Riffs from Seance, Sutrah, Slugdge, Sanguisugabogg, Solstice, Sentient Divide, Symphony X, and Scum.

Last week for our 2010 Edition we had a few good submissions and Immolation should have won by the looks of it.

This week we asked for riffs from bands starting with S
Here’s what you sent in…

Solstice – ‘Hammer of Damnation’ (Riff @ 0:00)

Opening riff is both mighty and true. Current Solstice rules, but old Solstice had some bangers too.

Slugdge – ‘Slave Goo World’ (Riff @ 0:00)

Some seriously heavy slime from the lime

Symphony X – “Reign in Madness” (Riff @ 3:20)

I have never understood how this track was a bonus tacked onto a 2-CD version, because I think it’s one of the coolest SX songs ever. Michael Romeo’s grooving riff sounds simpler than it really is and evolves over then next minute plus. Yummy.

Scum – ‘Trilogian Tales’ (Riff @ 3:33)

It was either them or Spirit Adrift. Went with a track from Scum’s “Garden of Shadows” because it has a funnier back story and it is a decent slab of epic death metal.

Sutrah – ‘Variation I.ii – Lethe’ (Riff @ 0:00)

My pick is from an EP that’s probably incredible (it’s getting v gud reviews so far). The main riff in this song is a good riff. Listen and enjoy. Don’t forget to vote… in this competition and IRL!

Sentient Divide – ‘Eternal Conviction’ (Riff @ 4:16)

This whole song is good, but this outro riff just hits different.

Sanguisugabogg – ‘Perverse/Deranged’ (Riff @ 0:20)

I hereby invoke Gorak.

Seance – ‘Wind Of Gehenna’ (Riff @ 0:13)

Lots of recent stuff up there, so I’m throwing in an underappreciated 90’s gem this week.
