2 KD riffs heard in a song by another band?

Here is the song "Set The World On Fire" by Symphony X.... If you ask me it has a riff in the beginning that sounds just like the main riff from "The Eye of the Witch"... Then fast forward to 50 seconds and you will hear a riff that sounds almost exactly like the main riff from "The Floating head" from GMYSP.... Am I right or is it just me?  :gah:

There are a lot of songs and a lot of bands that echo similiar riffs and themes...

I find the rhythm part in the Jonah, during Mike and Andy's solo("The End Is Near, No More Pain, Ah You're Free") sounds very similiar in the same place in Iron Maiden's Wasted Years...

There are parts of Mercyful Fate's Insanity that sound just like Gwar's Licksore. Or maybe it's the other way around. Or maybe not: I'm totally tone deaf.

Metal that Sounds Like Other Metal

Have fun...

There are 33 videos at last count and I do recall Mercyful Fate Nightmare and a song by Megadeth being very similar.

Yeah you guys are right, but I just found it strange that I found 2 in the same song though...

There is ever so many metal riffs which sounds like each other, i don't think that people are ripping each other i just think it is coincidence. there is nothing like a ripping to it.
Not at those points i think.

But i know Metallica has ripped from Artillery :P

Even on KDs albums riffs get recycled. The Storm and Never Ending Hill for example. There are a couple more, but I'm drawing a blank  :gah:

Thats right and I could also name a few other songs that part is in, but I never get tired of it! I love everything King writes, he could re - use as many riffs as he wanted and I would still find them amazing.  :D

Hehe. Listening to the Symph. X song I hear Yngwie's I'll See the Light Tonight as well as the other stuff. You could get away with that, though. That intro though...Holy rip off, Batman!

Another example of KD ripping off KD is Just a Shadow and Blue Eyes. I dont care though I still love it.  :king:

The part in blue eyes near the end where they're saying "someone better say it's a dream" is such a rip off of Alan Parson's Project song Cask Of Amontillado, whatever though. The beginning of the song took me by surprise too at how much of an eye rip off it is. I would also bet a shitload of money that they guys in Symphony X are huge KD fans.
