band - Candlemass
song - A Sorcerer's Pledge
album - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus
composer - Leif Edling

Tuning is somewhere between Eb and D (if you have an electric guitar tuner, tune at the 
point before D turns to Eb). If you want to play it like they do live, tune to C# (aka. 
Sabbath tuning). Right now, it will be tabbed for D.
