Sometimes it seems like great riffs that really stand out as hooks in a song are in scarce supply these days . . . or maybe I'm just an old man yelling at clouds.

Anyway, post some great riffs in songs that were released in the last 5 years.

This is the song that inspired the thread. Off Soilwork's 2019 album Verkligheten. The hardcore lead vocal detracts a bit from an otherwise melodic song but the main riff starting at :55 is certifiably "Balls to the Wall" good.

Definitely not riff of the decade but I LOVE this song by Katatonia for its 80’s Queesnryche vibe.


edit...and a NWOBHM feel here.
