Which of these two guitar tracks?

Which of these two guitar tracks will fit best in a metal mix? other instrumentation includes symphonic keyboards, metal drums, bass, and the screamy/harsh vocal style.

I have asked other people and its pretty 50/50 on who likes which one best. so now its time for the pro's to decide.

I like the RiffA better personally, but you can't get a serious answer when you ask something like, what fits this mix better without actually putting it into the mix. Put it into the mix and post again.

I agree with you on Riff A. I would but there is no mix to put it in, we are about to record and these two comparisons were between going direct in with a Roland MicroCube, and going direct in and using an amp modeler from within Cubase4. We have to decide which one we like better first before we can even begin tracking... thats the only problem.. so I am basically asking, which of these two sounds like it has the most versatility as far as tone goes, so that when it comes down to EQ, I will be able to help them fit by having chosen the one with the most versatile

I would use the guitar that goes direct using the amp mod., that way you have the opportunity to reamp the guitar back to a great amp (if available) and mic it up accordingly. Just my $.02

Riff A could take a lot of further eq and be shaped into something similar to Riff B if necessary. Riff B is fairly eq'd and there is less room to shape it afterwards.

If it was really a choice between the two, I would go with Riff A.

But I agree with the suggestion of tracking a clean, dry track for reamping later on. Even if you end up using an amp sim - there are some great free ones if you need extra colors.
