Tabbed by: Karleen Heong

Tuning: Drop C (6=C,5=G,4=C,3=F,2=A,1=D)

This needs 3 guitars later in the song but I suppose it can still 
be played with 2. Other than that it's short and straightfoward.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Guitar 1
D|------------------------------------|
A|---0---0---0---0----0---0---0---0---|
F|--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--| Play 8 times and 1st half
C|-7---7---7---7----3---3---3---3-----| of riff on 9th time

Uses a dirty (slight overdrive) sound - Put your middle finger on
fret 5 and alternate between the index and little fingers on 3rd 
string

Guitar 2 - Clean
D|------------------------| 
A|------------------------|
F|------------------------| Play twice - on 3rd and 4th times of 
C|------------------------| the above riff

C|-7---3---7---3---3---0---7---3---3---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
pm                                     . . . . . . .
Note: The 5th and 9th chords (3335) can be played (2225) if no bass
      guitar is playing

Guitar 1 - Distorted
D|------------|
A|------------| Play this on the last
F|------------| palm muted chord that guitar 2 plays
C|-7b(1/4)*~~-|
G|------------|
C|------------|
Bend the note at the 7th fret a quarter of the way while
playing it as a pinch harmonic and add some vibrato
    

Guitar 1 - Distortion
D|----------|  |----------|  |----------|  |----------|
A|----------|  |----------|  |----------|  |----------|
F|----------|  |----------|  |----------|  |----------|
C|----------|  |----------|  |----------|  |----------|
G|-5-7-8-10-|x4|-8-7-8-10-|x4|-7-8-7-10-|x4|-5-7-8-10-|x4
c|----------|  |----------|  |----------|  |----------|
(Play each section 4 times)
Play this whole sequence 2 times

Guitar 2 - Distortion
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
F|-----------------| Play 6 times
C|-7---3---3---0---| 
G|-7---3---3---0---|
C|-7---3---3---0---|
Again if there's no bass play 233 (fret 2 on 6th string) on the 2nd 333
so the moving bassline is heard. Also you can add some strumming to 
these chords

Guitar 1 - Distortion - enters after it's completed the previous riff 
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
F|-9-999-99-9999-9-12-12-1212\10-101010-10-12-12-1212/17-171717-1717--|
C|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-7-777-77-7777-7-10-10-1010\-8--8-8-8--8-10-10-1010/15-151515-1515--|
C|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------|
F|-19-19-1919-1919191919--9-999-99-9999-9-12-12\10101010101010-|

A|------------------------------------------|
F|-12-12/1717171717171717-12121212\10101010-|
C|------------------------------------------|  Play whole thing twice
G|-10-10/1515151515151515-10101010\-8-8-8-8-|
C|------------------------------------------|
You can work out the strumming pattern easily. Octaves like the 10-12 are
ten-twelve not one-zero-one-two

Guitar 3 - Plays the four bar sequence thing twice when guitar 1 is
           on its 2nd time playing the octaves

Ending - all guitars
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
F|------------------------|
C|-0--0--0----0-----------|
G|-0--0--0----0--let ring-|
C|-0--0--0----0-----------|

That's it. Really simple. Took no time to tab. It's rare to come across
short metal songs but this could be an interlude type of thing on their 
album, don't know coz I only started listening to them.
Please email comments and suggestions and rate!
