Artist: Therion
Song: Morbid Reality
Album: Of Darkness 
Tab by: Ky MacPherson (pokey@uiuc.edu)

To play this song you need to tune down 4 half-steps.  Also it sounds
to me like the guitar is tuned slightly flat, so maybe use A=430 Hz as
a reference.  There are a lot of tempo changes ... you will have to 
listen to the album to get them right.

I am only showing the bottom 4 strings, since that's all you need to
play this song.  (But note that this IS a GUITAR tab, NOT bass) 
I put beat markers on top of the staff to (hopefully) make it a
little easier to show the timing.  Also watch for the accents at the
top of the staff, in place of the beat markers.
