Basically my exact thoughts.... these are just riffs that come to mind laugh.gif Also these are in no particular order

1 Eagleheart - Stratovarius (not so much a riff but more a melody)
2 Master of Puppets - Metallica
3 Valhalla - Blind Guardian (I wrote almost that exact riff before I heard BG. YOU ROBBED ME MARCUS laugh.gif )

But then there is so many more.... Hammer Smashed Face, Just about any Death song, Breaking the Law....
