          This song is difficult . I make note of most of the little 
inflictions that I play , like I use lots of slides
when I play this . Not neccesarily in the song (maybe ?) but It definetly 
sounds good . If anyone has any corrections please
mail them to me ...

Key:
p=pull-off
h=hammer-on
/=slide
pm=palm mute
tr=trill
...=tremelo
vv=vibrato
hv=horizontal vibrato
ah=artificial harmonic
()=ring out

Emperor uses standard tunning usually, but I haven't actually tried this tab so I could be wrong...

Standard tuning. Sounds really good. Posting up a correction from Ihsahn's column with Guitar World for the cool chord bit.

I want to post or [tab]
