You really need to listen to more Metallica. It's not a bad riff but it doesn't have shit on most of the riffs from their first four albums. It's not even the best riff on the black album.

So many riffs, so many riffs.

To start I'll say anything off Slaughter or the Soul. Specifically Blinded by Fear and the title track. But the whole album is great riff after great riff.

This. It's impossible (and pointless) to go through the hundreds of riffs that would qualify.

With that said, there is only one truly correct answer: Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath. That opening riff is pure evil.
