Not a riff, but the second half of the chorus on Dr Mastermind's "Control" has the same vocal melody as "London Dungeon" ;)

Yep a definite influence on the band and section of worship there. Top album.

They are the same chords, Mustaine simply played them as arpeggios in "Hangar 18". Not really "revenge" as he is credited on the "original" too.

One i noticed recently is:

MANILLA ROAD - The Teacher (from "Mark Of The Beast")
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxA_o3PXYRU

where the main riff is almost identical to the main riff in:

MANOWAR - Fighting The World (from "Fighting The World")
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnMFZELu7o8

except Manowar play it far slower.
Not sure if it's a true "rip-off" as the Manilla Road song, despite being recorded in 1981, wasn't officially released until 2002, so it seems unlikely that the Mano-warriors would have been aware of it when they recorded "Fighting The World" in 1987.
Unless someone knows something to the contrary.

SOOTHSAYER - E.T., the same beginning with RUSH's Xanadu. Weird album.

Yeah...I almost started singing On your knees for the Master... when I first heard it! They must have heard some material from Master at that time, the vocals in some other tracks remind me strongly that of Speckman.

Ripper "Death Awaits You" in the lead break 04:53- there's a bit of the "Star Wars - The Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme)"

Not the same riff but the vocal melodies of the pre-chorus of ABACINATE's Drug Addiction are very similar to those of the chorus of DEICIDE's Sacrificial Suicide! DEICIDE's track (as AMON) predates ABACINATE.

There's a strong air of DISCHARGE's Free Speech For The Dumb in the main riff of SCARAB's Fighting For The Right.

Master were also indebted to The Buzzcocks.
