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

Although this song is really hardcore and really cool, it was hell to 
tab.  The problem is that I really wanted to get a note-for-note 
transcription and Dino has a basic pattern for the intro riff which gets 
modified as he goes on.  He adds little tremolos here and there, which 
only makes my job harder.  

Unfortunately, this song may not be as easy for you as it sounds on the 
recording.  There are tons of riffs here, all of which must be played 
with clinical precision and a honed sense of rhythm.  The melodic idea 
in this song is fairly simple, however.  It relies heavily upon the 
half-step interval between C# (on the lowest string, which has been 
tuned down to B) and D.  That's a piece of good news for your fretting 
hand; it won't have to jump around the fretboard very much.  Your 
picking hand, however, is going to get a heavy workout.  Anchoring your 
hand against the bridge (you'll have to palm-mute a lot throughout the 
song anyway, so this is a good place to hold it) will stop your arm from 
waving too much at the elbow, and thus minimizing the amount of distance 
your pick has to travel.  In other words, don't just wave your arm 
around.  

Tune all strings down a perfect fourth (B, E, A, D, F#, B)

LEGEND:
        
        *    -- palm-mute 
        H    -- hit-on
        P    -- pull-off
        ~~~~ -- vibrato
        A.H. -- Artificial Harmonic
        N.H. -- Natural Harmonic

Upbeat, fairly fast speed

Intro:  about 6 seconds of creepy sounding intro synth stuff, and then 
the drums kick in, followed by extra synth stuff, and then the guitar 
comes in with this...

Riff E

Although this riff is a little difficult to hear, I don't think that the 
palm muting here is as heavy as on the four previous riffs...
