A fairly new one.

I really think Baroness' Eula from the Yellow & Green album from 4 mins 15 seconds.


sound a lot like In the house, in a heartbeat from the film 28 days later.

Post Blatant theft of ideas and riffs
I can recall in the early 2000's Atreyu copying one of In flame's riffs, though I can't recall the song. What are some examples of band's stealing ideas, lyrics, riffs, or just an overall aesthetic from a similar act, and managing to get some success by doing so? Has the band gotten far as a result of said theft or mimicry, or have they fallen along the wayside as many bands have?

On Cathedral's Carnival Bizarre the song "Utopian Blaster" blatantly lifts a riff from Thin Lizzy's "Emerald". Another song on the album blatantly lifts the riff from "Moby Dick" by Led Zeppelin. I understand it's probably homage or something but they're the exact riffs...

These are what I thought of when I saw the thread. I'm prepared to believe they were so scatty on pot at that point they thought they'd written them - as happened with 'Cyclops Revolution'. Another brilliant one is Sleep referencing Lord Of This World on Dragonaut.

There's one on the new Moss album, we're eagerly waiting to see who spots it first.

I imagine that's also the case with Manilla Road's Dreams of Eschaton, though Autopsy's Retribution For The Dead is SO blatant that even with the horrific amounts of weed they were smoking then they must have realised.

Cathedral - Stained Glass Horizon. Blatantly rips off 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath'.

The accordion part at the start of this song, which is also the vocal melody.


59 seconds into this.

It's not note for note, but I think it's rather similar.

That's so blatant it has to have been done on purpose, surely.

Intro riffs. Not identical, but close enough.

I thought that. But I can find no mention of it anywhere, nor is credit given in the booklet.
But given Oli's father is Osmo Vänskä, who is a conductor, clarinetist and composer, and after a quick google, you can purchase a recording of Ma Vlast with Osmo conducting it, I'd be surprised if Oli wasn't in some small way familiar with the piece.
