This is the part where the song explodes. It's kind of hard to pick out all the parts but I tried.
Lots of distortion and reverb.

Bassline (Some sort of distortion. Probably a Big Muff Pi).

E|-----------------------------------------------|

Also throughout the song there is a lot of background noise which is created by
using delay and reverb and seems to be centered around the root note of D.
Obviously this is pretty difficult to tab you'll just have to listen.

That's all. Let me know what you think or if you have any corrections.
Thanks!
