    Great riff. Thick drippy dark sound. It May be tuned down to make it even heavier. Doesn't have to be fast. Just Heavy.

    Is the opening really a riff? A chord sequence isn't a riff.

    Never really thought of that song as having a "riff" Just a tasty selection of chords?

    Maybe that makes it a riff?? I honestly don't know lol.

    I've never been a metal head but have always liked these guys. Always thought they had a heavy sound. And the actual music starts at 2:00.

    ot and ..apologies, random thought...A few years ago i was working on the renovation of LAPD academy. As we were busting open some of the walls we found that someone had written, "may the birds of paradise fly up your nose," on a sheet of drywall on a renovation in 1966. The artist had named and dated their work. I have a few pictures of the facility and some of work we did but, unfortunately, not of this. I wish i could remember the artists name....I remember the writing being on the first floor of the historic building in one of the offices facing the pool. Google says that, "May the Birds of Paradise Fly up Your Nose," was a hit in 1965!..It blows my mind not that it took more than 50 years to find scribble but that some actually found it. For all intents and purposes this is a random building in a random wall in a random part of the world that a random person wrote a random saying that means nothing to most but means something to some. Dr. Jones and co. must go through that sense of awe and excitement on a daily. What is the future going to find written within our walls more than 50 years from now? I'm blowing my own mind...It's almost 3am and I've had a few too many beers. Let's get back on topic...

    There are heavy riffs throughout the song. “Riffs” don’t have to be the opening, by definition.

    Funny. When I saw the thread, before I saw your post, I was going to reply "The Wizard" off of their first album. I've been listening to it on auto-repeat lately for some reason. His guitar tone, the riff, Bill Ward. Its a masterpiece, and they did it in one take if I've read correctly.

    Almost everything Glenn Tipton and KK Downing did with Priest....

    This song is a 2 for 1...
    Aside from the great riff off the top, the B section at 2:15 is a 2nd great riff led off by an incredible lead lick.

    About 3:20 in, the heaviness that others only aspire to.
