Posted by \m/ The Power of the Riff \m/ | File under :
In the Riff the we Trust with Zak Carter of Castle Freak.



THE RIFF WHICH MADE YOU WANT TO PLAY THE GUITAR IS?
Where Eagles Dare by Iron Maiden

WHAT IS THE FIRST RIFF YOU LEARNED TO PLAY?
Probably some Maiden or Ozzy or something,  I don't remember to be honest. 

YOUR TOP THREE METAL RIFFERS ARE?
Other than Tony Iommi?  
1.) Matt Pike, because come on, every Sleep riff is legendary and there isn't a bad riff on any High on Fire album
2.) George Lynch.  Listen to the first 4 Dokken albums and tell me I'm wrong.
3.) Ty Tabor from King's X.  Most underrated guitarist in hard rock/metal in my opinion.  Just listen to the albums "Dogman" and "Gretchen Goes to Nebraska".  So good.

WHO IS THE MASTER OF THE RIFF?
 Tony Iommi.  Obviously.

THE RIFF WHICH IS THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR LIFE IS?
 "Freelance Fiend" by Leaf Hound.  Just the intro.  The part with the cowbell. 

THE RIFF YOU WISH YOU WROTE IS?
 I know everyone probably says "Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath, but I'm gonna say either "Mr. Scary" by Dokken or "Emerald" by Thin Lizzy.  Both of those riffs are just too good.

THE WORST METAL RIFF EVER IS?
 Anything associated with C.C. Deville

RIFF FOR RIFF YOUR FIVE FAVOURITE ALBUMS ARE?
As far as riffs alone, my top five albums are: Black Sabbath - "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath", Annihilator - "Never, Neverland", Sleep - "Holy Mountain", Electric Wizard - "Come My Fanatics...", and Candlemass - "Nightfall".  There's not a bad riff on any of those albums in my opinon.

A NON METALHEAD ASKS YOU WHAT DOES METAL SOUND LIKE, THE RIFF YOU PLAY THEM IS?
"Fast as a Shark" by Accept.  Anything with Flying Vs and German midgets is heavy metal.

THE RIFF YOU WANT PLAYED AT YOUR FUNERAL IS?
Just play the entire "Nightfall" album by Candlemass, please and thank you.

WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT RIFFS ANYWAY?
A good riff can make you feel like you're on top of the world.  Like, when I hear the riff to "Fast as a Shark" I feel like I'm riding a motorcycle on top of a '69 Dodge Charger speeding down the highway while playing a Flying V, and I've got a sidecar on the motorcycle with 2 naked sluts in it making out.  It rules.
