band: Bathory
song: Wheel of Sun
album: Nordland II
year: 2003
genre: viking metal

disclaimer: I do not own anything with the Bathory title on it, and I am not making any
money off this guitar tab. I listened to this song over and over until I got it close to
right (the quality sucks, so that's quite an achievement there, lol), and this is that
version. Please don't feel afraid to leave some kind of correction at the bottom if you
find something that isn't right (or actually figured out the shredding part at the end).

tuning is drop C# (low to high: C# G# C# F# A# D#)
