According to Dave, all three of them were drop-d'ed for this one. Tab still looks good though. :)

Murray: "On one song, 'Mother Of Mercy', we all tuned down to drop D – and it really leaped out with three guitars. It was pretty ominous-sounding when we were all playing in that tuning, and really different to what we'd done before."
