Riff Of The Week: Solo Artist Edition
Riffs from Cosmic Putrefaction, Methwitch, Sculpted Horror, Nine Inch Nails, and Putrid Pile.
Last time we met a few brave contestants among you sent in your favourite riffs of 2020 so far. Some pagan black metal I can’t pronounce took the win by reasonable margin. Hope you’re all happy with yourselves.
Nine Inch Nails – ‘Wish’ (Riff @ 0:19)
As I was 11 when Broken came out, I credit Trent Reznor (and this riff) for singlehandedly making my balls drop.
Anime Slam Connoiseur
Putrid Pile – ‘Tortured Soul’ (Riff @ 1:36)
Not much to say about this one. It’s a really cool, generic riff played by a really cool and perhaps generic guy.
Iron Goddess of Mercy
Sculpted Horror – “Night Terrors” (Riff @ 3:02)
If you like burpy, twisted Finnish death metal, then you’ll probably enjoy this one-man band from my beloved Athens, GA. <3
Methwitch -‘Indwell’ (Riff @ 1:22)
Usually I’m not into that type of stuff but this album:
* Tickles me in a funny spot.
* Came to my attention like two days ago.
* Happens to fit this weeks theme.
Cosmic Putrefaction – ‘This Landscape Sublimates Oblivion To Obliteration’ (Riff @ 0:00)
On an album absolutely stocked with top-tier death metal riffage, there are no wrong answers.
