Song: Blacken the Cursed Sun
Artist: Lamb of God
Album: Sacrament
Instrument: Bass


There have been no tabs at all for this song, so one day in history I decided to
write one out.  Thanks to my procrastination skills, one month later I finally
started on the tab.  I know its not perfect by any means, but come on, its John
Campbell, and I learned it all by ear.  Gimme a freakin break, jeez. Most of this
was compared to the Producer's Edition, so if something sounds weird just trust
me on it, ok? Please rate and comment.
