Evisceration Plague by Cannibal Corpse
off the album: Evisceration Plague

This song is awesome, and I really wanted to play it and was sad it wasn't
up on UG.com yet. I've taken quite a bit of time to tab this out and I think
It's about 90-95%. I'd love to hear comments on this as it's my first Corpse
tab. Now to the good stuff!

Tuning:
Ab standard. This is a whole step lower than on Bloodthirst as a point of
reference, and this might be wrong because the strings I used are pretty
thin so the tuner was going crazy trying to tell me the note for the strings.

Ab Db Gb B Eb Ab (note that the main riffs only use the bottom 3 strings)

t = Triplet (gallop)
^ = bend
. = palm mute
" = tremolo pick

(if tuning the stings down with the tuner isn't working use the open palm
mutes on the lowest string to tune that to the song, and then tune the others
down accordingly. That's how I figured out the tuning. This requires a good
ear though)

Riff A (intro) - you can also do the second part trill on 11h14p11h14p11h14p11h14p11h14 
the 2nd string if you like

 [[ first half x2, second half x2 ]]
 |---------------------------------------||------------------------------------|

      .   .  .                                          .   .  .

Riff B1 (those are 10's)
 [[ Play B1 x6 in the beginning, then B2 x2 ]]
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|--7---------t777---t101010-----------------|
|----10-8-7-------0----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
     .  . .   ... .  . . .   . . . . . . .

Riff B2
[[ You might miss this but one of those last open notes is NOT palm muted. ]]
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|-------------------t888-----------------|
|--7--------t777-------------------------|
|----10-8-7------0-------0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
     .  . .  ... .   ... . . .   . . .

Riff C (verse) x2

     . . . . . . .   . .   . . . .       . . . . . .   . .   . . . .

the play:
Riff B1 x2
Riff B2 x2
Riff C x2

Riff D (chorus) x 2
|-----------------------------------|----------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|----------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|----------------------------------------------|

  ........ . .    ...... ......       ........ . . . .                 . .

then play:
Riff B1 x2
Riff B2 x2
Riff C x2
Riff D x4
Riff A (whole thing 2 and 2 again)

At the end of Riff A the last 2 whole beats are cut off and instead you do an open palm 
it's easier to listen to the song and get the timing it's pretty obvious when this happens.

   .  .

Riff E (Bridge) x4

[[ the second part sounds wrong but close maybe someone can figure it out from 
this as a starter :/ ]]
                                                              (these notes wrongish)
|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|

     . . . . . . .   . .   . .   .       . . . . . . .   .   .

Since the end of part 2 sounds a little off I can't make a solid transcription of the climb,
but it will involve the same finger pattern if you find it as the end of the last riff.

Riff F (end Bridge) x 4
[[ The initial triplet isn't played when you start this riff ]]
|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|

|------------------10//-------|
|--000-9---//0-0-9------000---|
   ...         .        ...

Riff G x 4
Plague Leads to deaaaaath...
[[ Tremolo picked ]]
|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|
|---------------10"---7"------|
|--9"----0"-6"----------------|

Riff G (Behind the solo) x2
 [[ Play the first half x2 then the second half x2 per repitition ]]
|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------------|
|--5-------555------------------------|-------------------------------------------|

     . . .     .     . . . . . . .         .  . .       .          . . . . . . .

Then play:
Riff C x2
Riff D x4

Outro

     .  . .    . .

As with any song you should listen to the song while reading this to get a
 better grasp of the timing involved and placement. There are also a few
spots where there are some harmonies but I didn't feel compelled to tab them
 out they're pretty minor. Enjoy! Leave your comments at the bottom.

the formatting for this was a little rough so some of the palm mutes indicators didn't line up correctly. Just listen or compare to similar riffs and you should be able to match up most of the palm mutes. Thanks Hatchet :)
