Which are IYO the 5 best, most "tasteful" KD and MF guitar riffs?

I think of these:

MF:
- The Uninvited Guest
- The Bell Witch
- Nightmare Be Thy Name
- Return Of The Vampire
- The Old Oak

KD:
- Shrine
- Abigail
- Welcome Home
- Eye of the Witch
- Halloween

By the way, I find in general the riffs in MF a tad better than in KD.

MF. Doomed by the living dead. A dangerous meeting. Nightmare. The oath. Curse of the pharoes... KD. The possession. welcome home. Bye bye missy. Twilight symphony. Blood to walk. \m/
And god said to adam and eve, "you may listen to mf/kd, but dont eat those apples over there".

MF: a dangerous meeting, desecration of souls, the mad arab, into the unknown, dead again

KD: the candle, the black horsemen, welcome home, the curse, Loa house

this is a much tougher question to answer than it appears to be at first....it probably would be just as hard if you could name 10 riffs from each instead of only 5.

KD

- Family Ghost

- Charon

- Invisible Guests

- Portrait

- Mansion In Darkness


MF

- Black Masses

- Evil

- Welcome Princes Of Hell

- Doomed By The Living Dead

- Return of the Vampire


Overall, I dig KD riffs much more than MF's - they're very twisted, atmospheric and with a darker tone, while the MF ones sometimes have too much of a "classic" feel and follow traditional rock patterns: I remember listening to Corpse Without Soul for the first time , while looking at my KD poster, and thinking "what the heck is this"....it is a great song, but the main riff is too "happy" imo, and I've had the same feeling with other songs
like Demon Bell and some parts of Come To The Sabbath. This maybe because the first thing I heard was Fatal Portrait, which had a darker mood than Melissa and BDTO, so I was probably expecting something different, but still, two great bands, and many juicy riffs!
