C# G# C# F# A# D#
Tabbed by: Connor Ford

Tuning: Drop C# (C#, G#, C#, F#, A#, D#)
(Tune all strings down half a step then drop tune)

In my opinion this song is a very strange style for Trivium in the vocal
aspects of it. The intro riff sounds quite Maiden-esque and the root riff
after it sounds a lot like Watch The World Burn, but other than the similar
styles it sounds like such a different approach. I'm indifferent to whether
I dislike or enjoy the vocal style... Other than that, instrumentally it's
simple but effective.

I'm looking forward to tabbing the full album of Vengeance Falls on October
15th. If you're fans of Trivium's early stuff, be sure to check out Shogun
and In Waves on my contributions!

Please rate, comment, correct, anything that will help :)
