Song: Emperor of the Void
Band: Candlemass
Album: King of the Grey Islands
Tabbed by: TrollFaceJesus
E-mail: trollfacejesus@gmail.com


Hey guys, this is my tab for this song, and I think it sounds pretty good. All 
of the rhythm parts are in here, but I didn't tab out the solo. Hopefully 
everything here is accurate, and that you guys find it to be helpful! If you 
have any comments, questions, or corrections to point out, please feel free 
to leave a message here, or to send me an email! :D

[Note: the chords in the parentheses are 
somewhat faint, and a little hard to hear 
in the song. I consider them to be "optional", 
and don't always play them.]

There's still something about the chorus riff, I don't know whether is it just how the tab is written, or that a few notes are too low a bit high.

Hey, thanks for pointing out my mistake! You are totally right; I made a typing error there, and the way you have it written is the correct way. Riff "4b" should still be correct though. Thanks again for helping me out; I really appreciate it! :D

Just trying to help a bit. Another change would be in the opening riff it goes like this:

|----9-8-7----9-8-7----10-9-8---10-9-8--|
