THE RIFF WHICH MADE YOU WANT TO PLAY THE GUITAR IS?

I was in the age of 17 and I wanted to play „Live Wire” from AC/DC.

WHAT IS THE FIRST RIFF YOU LEARNED TO PLAY?

Like every guitar player on this planet my first riff was „Smoke on the water”,
of course.

YOUR TOP THREE METAL RIFFERS ARE?

1. Malcolm Young-AC/DC
2. Scott Ian-Anthrax
3. Gary Holt-Exodus

WHO IS THE MASTER OF THE RIFF?

In my point of view it's Malcolm Young. He made his musical career with only
three cords and created his own Rock'n'Roll universe!

THE RIFF WHICH IS THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR LIFE IS?

Ulvaskall from Grand Magus. A great metal band from Sweden.
Check out their first two records. Fantastic stuff!

THE RIFF YOU WISH YOU WROTE IS?

The ”Hammer and Life”-riff from the Exodus album „Exhibit B: The Human
Condition”. Such a great song from a great band!

THE WORST METAL RIFF EVER IS?

„The final Countdown” of course!

RIFF FOR RIFF YOUR FIVE FAVOURITE ALBUMS ARE?

1. Metallica: Kill 'em all
2. Motorhead: Overkill
3. Anthrax: State of Euphoria
4. Sodom: Better off Dead
5. Grand Magus: Monument

A NON METALHEAD ASKS YOU WHAT DOES METAL SOUND LIKE, THE RIFF YOU PLAY
THEM IS?

This is easy to answer. Of course he or she has to listen to the riff of „Paranoid”
from Black Sabbath. One time playing, no more questions :-)

THE RIFF YOU WANT PLAYED AT YOUR FUNERAL IS?

I think the best riff to be played at my funeral is „Dead Again” from
Type O Negative. A very cool band always looking in a very ironic way on subjects like death and so on. Last  not but least they are deeply influenced by the
Beatles, which I appreciate a lot.

WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT RIFFS ANYWAY?

The riff itself is one of the main elements in metal music. Bands like Black
Sabbath with their extraordinary guitarist Tony Iommi is a good example of what a good riff is all about. This band was copied a thousand times but was never reached!
And with this kind of music they created a whole genre.
A good riff can make you move!

Beneath the wheel is without a doubt the sound track to my life lol.

Once again im going to say beneath the wheel it just has the energy and speed that just grips you down inside man.

The riff I would like to be played at my funeral would be kiss my ashes goodbye from woods of ypres.  And riff from that song would do.

WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT RIFFS ANYWAY?

Riffs are what everyone plays air guitar to and hums along to. If the song is done right riffs can make a major impact on a person.  There the content that what makes riffs so great!
