Blackened by Metallica
Transcription by Jeff Davis  (4th revision)

Notation:
.  - palm mute
h  - hammer on
p  - pull off
!  - I used these to glue the dots to the page. Huh? (just ignore them).
s/  - slide up           these are used for normal
s                         and ghost slides
\  - slide down

In general I tried to keep one dash '-' equal to a thirty-second note.
Thus,
|-0---0---0---0---   are eight notes and

|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-   are sixteenth notes.

E||--                                          -||
B||--                                          -||
G||*-     These mark the beginning and the     *||
D||*-     end of a section to be repeated.     *||
A||--                                          -||
E||--                                          _||

  --------|--------
  --------|--------
  --------|-3------
  --------|-1------
  ---1---^|(1)-----  <--- this means the 1 should ring out in to the
  --------|--------       next measure while the 1 and 3 are played

My transcription strictly notates the rhythm guitar for this song.
The intro and solo are tabbed below my transcription.
They were tabbed below by Matt Holliman bu345@cleveland.Freenet.Edu) and

Vassilis Tzerpos (bpatr@theseas.ntua.gr) respectively.
(addendum: In my second revision I tabbed my own version of
                the harmonies in the beginning of the solo.

Lyrics

Blackened is the end
Winter it will send
throwing all you see
into obscurity

Death of Mother Earth
Never a rebirth
Evolution's end
Never will it mend

Never

  Fire
  To begin whipping dance of the dead
  Blackened is the end
  To begin whipping dance of the dead
  Color of our world Blackened

Blistering of Earth
Terminate its worth
Deadly Nicotine
Kills what might have been

Callous frigid chill
Nothing left to kill
Never seen before
Breathing nevermore

Never

  Fire
  To begin whipping dance of the dead
  Blackened is the end
  To begin whipping dance of the dead
  Color of our world Blackened

                     Blackened

Opposition  Contradiction  Premonition  Compromise
Agitation   Violation      Mutilation   Planet Dies
    Darkest Color
    Blistered Earth
    True death of life

Termination  Expiration  Cancellation  Human Race
Expectation  Liberation  Population    Lay to waste
    See our Mother
    Put to death
    See our Mother die.

Smouldering decay
Take her breath away
Millions of our years
In minutes disappears

Darkening in vain
Decadence remains
All is said and done
Never is the sun

Never

  Fire
  To begin whipping dance of the dead
  Blackened is the end
  To begin whipping dance of the dead
  Fire
  Is the outcome of hypocrisy
  Darkest potency
  In the exit of humanity
  Color our world Blackened

                  Blackened
