I was listening to some Saxon a couple days ago and I noticed that Power And The Glory's title track has a riff that is eerily similar to Dio's Stand Up and Shout. Even came out the same year.

Birdflesh - Moonwalk Massacre

At least this makes more sense than the Flamencorpse one

When I was growing up, videoclips were a new thing, and "Talking in your Sleep" by the New Romantics was a song that I liked, and so I remember its video pretty well (I guess the lingerie also left its mark on an impressionable 8 year old boy). Long story short, I eventually got into metal, then classic rock, and became some kind of completist when it comes to Deep Purple family stuff, so I didn't stop at the "good" Rainbow period but also dug into the JLT era. When I happened upon the "Stone Cold" (1982) video sometime in the late 90s, I couldn't help but finding similarities with the New Romantics video, which I hadn't seen in about 15 years by then, basically, the idea of "frozen women" in a blue surrounding while the band plays. But I immediately dismissed this as Rainbow having copied a more famous video/song, just like in these days, they seemed to copy sonic elements from Foreigner, Loverboy and other AOR bands.

Until I checked the dates, recently, and Rainbow's video actually came out in 1982, while the New Romantics', in late 1983 ! Always great when a mainstream band borrows from a metal-family band.

Two other songs with very similar riffs are "Hellbound" by Tygers of Pan Tang and "Drive Like Hell" by Banshee. The former came out in 1982, while the latter was released several years later.

Probably the former.
I just remembered this song by Ding an Sich also using the same pattern:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLByvocz68U

I think it has been a famous pattern since Pink Floyd; also found in this song from the 70s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTpYXQABkco

I wonder if any other metal song than Amorphis' Smithereens has it.

Napalm Death - Breed to Breathe
Guilty Gear X (Daisuke Ishiwatari) - A Solitude That Asks Nothing In Return
(Guilty Gear XX version)

Props to a Gamefaqs user for making me aware of this one, I'd have never caught it.

Motley Crue's "Dr. Feelgood" opening guitar intro, the first 30 seconds or so, is the same riff from Killing Joke's "Love Like Blood." They could have easily just stumbled upon that same rhythm while jamming, but of course, could have subconsciously picked it up after hearing the song or seeing that Killing Joke video, or deliberately tried to write a song based around that simple, cool, chugging, palm muted guitar rhythm on the low E string. Really different songs though, love 'em both.

Youtube: show


"Thunderkiss 65" by White Zombie shares a similar guitar rhythm, but not quite the same as with these two here.

Bruce Dickinson - Darkside of Aquiarius @4:40 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ug8ebZe8Kw0)

Super Punch Out - Mad Clown (1994)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8Z45V7n2sk

sounds like...

Macabre - Zodiac (1993)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBsDYXZOzEg&t=1m51s

I swear this is based on some folk song though. Somewhat weird though.

One mor far fetched..

The chorus vocal melody in Alexis Utatnaq's Maqaivvigivalauqtavut (doesn't it just roll off the tongue !) sounded like something familiar and I struggled for days to realize what it was..

Listen for yourself here from 33 s to 49 s:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6U2aUNAtpw#t=32s
if the video is available in your country.

If it isn't, then try this bandcamp page:
https://nativenorthamerica-variousartis ... alauqtavut
forward to 33s

What is this melody ???

Well, to me, it's the guitar track from Black Sabbath's Solitude (1971):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmV8niW5GXs
and to a lesser extent, its vocal track.

I don't know when Alexis Utatnaq's song was written / recorded, but I have good reason to believe it was around 1978.

I don't know what Maqaivvigivalauqtavut means, but it has something to do with hunting.

Megadeth - Rust in peace... Polaris and Guns 'n Roses - You could be mine have a similar intro drum fill.

i just noticed that the latter half of varathron's "mestigoth" is very similar to the game of thrones theme, tho' it precedes it by a number of years

*edit* youtube tag didn't like the timestamp thing in the url, so link instead

I recall seeing youtube videos years and years ago entitled "Metal and rock that sounds like other metal and rock". There were AT LEAST a dozen episodes. Some of the similarities were ridiculously close, while others were grasping at straws.

edit: Here is a link to the youtube page for anyone that wants to waste hours of their time. Looks like there are 34 "episodes" now.

Pop Will Eat Itself - Familius Horribilius

Sounds like...

Black Sabbath - Symptom of the Universe

For all I know this might be a KMFDM - Godlike sort of thing (that song directly samples a riff from Slayer - Angel of Death and loops it)

Some people are going to get shocked by this, but the GoT main melody was already used in Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones (by John Williams)

starts at 0:29 ...
