The tuning is Drop D, tuned 1 more whole step down(CGCFAD).You'll have to listen
to the song to  hear how to place everything.Timing isn't exact, but I tried
getting it close.Listen to the song 

to get it exact.

Intro
Play this twice a with clean tone:
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-3-5-0------|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-3-5---|   
PM---------       PM--------       PM----------

|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-0-3-5-0----|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-------|
PM-----------    PM--------      PM--------------

Basically the intro only heavily distorted:
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-3-5-0------|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-3-5---|  

|----------------|---------------|---------------|

|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-3-3-3-5-0------|-3-3-3-5-0-----|-3-3-3-5-0-----|
|-3-3-3-5-0------|-3-3-3-5-0-----|-3-3-3-5-0-----|

James plays this with some effect:
|----------------|             |----------------|
|----------------|             |----------------|
|-------12-------|             |-------12-12b---|
|-12-15----12----|<---6x then: |-12-15----------|
|----------------|             |----------------|
|----------------|             |----------------|

|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|-3-3-3-5-0------|
|-3-3-3-5-0------|

|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-3-5-0------|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-3-5---|  

|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-0-3-5-0----|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-------|

|----------------|             |----------------|
|----------------|             |----------------|
|-------12-------|             |-------12-12b---|
|-12-15----12----|<---6x then: |-12-15----------|
|----------------|             |----------------|
|----------------|             |----------------|


Lead Verse Riff:
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-12-0-12-12-|0--------------|---------------|

Kirk plays this under James's Lead riff for the verse
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-2b-------------|---------------|-2b------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|





Back to verse, then chorus 1, verse, Chorus 2 then:
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|-0-0-12-0-12-12-|0--------------|

|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|-------3--------|-------3-------|<---6x
|----------------|---------------|
|-0-2/3---0001---|-0-2/3---000111|

Play this when James is singing the stuff like 
"This is the Cloud that swallows trust"
|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|-3-5-5-3-5-5----|

I don't know what to play when the guys are chanting "Ominous I'm in us".

This is the ending riff that I think is hilarious:
|-12h17-12h17----|-1212-12h17----|-12h17-12------|
|-12h17-12h17----|-1212-12h17----|-12h17-12------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|<-2x
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|

That's it, listen to the song to figure out the whole placement, 
what a way to end such a heavy song eh?If you know the riff to 
when the boys are chanting E-Mail it to me.XxStMetalxX@hotmail.com
