Hey Lian,
Sorry if this post gets long but this is an important question for me. Sorry also about the fact that I will once again use Megadeth as my example.

I finnaly got a band together (name undecided) and I have 4 songs in my head. Titles are: Carnivale, Robotics, The Reaping, Inner Chaos.

The album is either going to be named after Inner Chaos or The Reaping. Not sure yet. Anyway.

I know in my head what I want to do. I want HEAVY, AGGRESSIVE, CONTROVERSIAL. The first album that springs into my mind is Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?. That has songs like The Conjuring, Peace Sells, My Last Words, Wake up Dead, and of course: GOOD MOURNING/BLACK FRIDAY.

My problem is, that although I know what i want, I can't seem to get the riffs out of me. How can I write riffs of that specific style? Any tips?

Thanks a lot for any advice
