PostSubject: Another "similarities you've noticed" thread   Sun May 06, 2018 1:06 am

Listening to the new Judas Priest album, Firepower, just recently, I noticed the title track's main riff sounds extremely similar to "Lightnin' Strikes Again" by Dokken.




Which is kind of funny, considering the next track on the Judas Priest album is called "Lightning Strike".

Then there is the beginnings of "Into the Pit" by Testament, "My Plague" by Kittie, and "Laid to Rest" by Lamb of God.





Interesting, as I see Lamb of God and Testament together live in a few weeks. Testament never raked Lamb of God over the coals for having an almost identical sounding riff (though the guitar tones are totally different). Plus, Lamb of God played live shows with Kittie before. (I know, some bands really get upset over other bands having songs with an extremely similar sound or melody to them.)

Meanwhile, there is also the intro to "Amazone" by Sortilège and "Evil Dead" by Death.




Of course, Chuck Schuldiner once stated that Sortilège was his favorite metal band of all time, and almost no one into metal had ever heard of them in North America. This makes it pretty obvious he was trying to create something with a very similar feel to it.

Circle II Circle - Sentenced. The intro is Pantera's Cemetery Gates.
Circle II Circle - Cynical Ride. The main riff is Pantera's Cowboys from Hell.

That Kittie song intro is a blatant ripoff of Testament. Too bad they can't play it like Eric Peterson.

Paradise City by Guns N Roses and Her Black Wings by Danzig both have riffs that sound very similar to Zero the Hero by Black Sabbath.

Noticed this similarity while driving down to South Carolina this past weekend...

Awhile back we had a thread where someone posted a youtube video of the most used guitar riff and it's the riff from the beginning of "2 Minutes to Midnight". It's also eerily similar to a one Chris Impellitteri uses a lot and Dokken's "Lightning Strikes" too. Searched for a few minutes before posting but I couldn't find it.

Man that Sortilege album is amazing. I picked it up a couple of months ago and have been investing a lot into obscure french metal lately. Some real jewels there.

The entire catalog of theirs is awesome.

I do find it strange how last year, Sortilège's self titled EP and Métamorphose both got reissued, while Larmes de Héros did not.
