"Pagan Altar" - Pagan Altar (Volume 1)  http://www.paganaltar.co.uk

I was disappointed when I didn't see any Pagan Altar tabs on this site, so I went ahead 
tabbed one out. These guys are an excellent example of doom metal and are only exceeded 
the doom kings, Black Sabbath and Pentagram.

I didn't add any of the lead solos as a lot of them are improvised and it doesn't do 
good to tab them out. I did, however, include harmonizations where they're neccesary.

As always, listen to the record for the timing and the pattern of the riffs as I neither 
them to a time signature, nor included a sequence for the riffs!
