A feww great King riffs that stand out in my mind are The Candle (you know the riff I'm talking about)

I am strangely drawn to the riff from HELP, and that fast riff in Moving On where livia is singing "I'm trying, crying.... etc"

A lot of people seem to hate it but I love the ending riff from Mommy... so very evil, and speaking of Mommy, I love the clean electric part. (the one that sounds hilariously similar to "Unclean Spirits" off of Voodoo)

And of course, I have an extreme, extreme, extreme, soft spot for the chorus riff from TEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if more bands could be that

The intro riff to A Mansion in Darkness is the first one that comes to mind, one of my favorite King Diamond moments. \m/

sorry.....this is totally off-topic, but I just wanted to say that the image in your avatar is to me one of the most underrated & underappreciated guitarists of all time. mr Roeser friggin' rules! you have outstanding taste.

Mansion in the darkness is an awesome riff but every Halloween I have to play Halloween and every Christmas I have to play No Presents For Christmas. Brings me into the holiday spirit.

That opening riff to "Arrival" is the riff that started it all for me

Where I'm concerned, the best riff in any of King's songs would be a toss-up between those in 'A Mansion in Darkness' and 'LOA House'.
There may be no peace for the wicked, but the righteous can damn well get a piece whenever they feel
