The breakdown riff in "Mourning Palace" from Dimmu Borgir comes to mind; but I think I'll have to go with "Where You Come From" by Pantera (especially the 2nd intro riff!) .....Yup, final answer.....

The Dark Eternal Night by Dream Theater has a pretty fuckin' metal intro and outro riff.

Right now though, I'm stickin with Six, by All That Remains.

Both those are very good riffs, but most of Tony Iommi's riffs are classics.

Well, almost every riff from running wild is best for me. Rolf is a fucking riff god. But I think that most badass is "Roaring Thunder" or "Fire and Thunder" from Running Wild. Shit, too many thunder words in a sentence. But I think that most powerfull and badass riff is Breaking the Law from Judas Priest. You never get tired for that!
