Gtr.2 plays the riff in the second bar 4 times.

Then the solo is played over top of the Bridge Riff 2 times, then repeat the song 
from the begining.

Here is the structure:

Intro riff 8 times, last 4 doubled by gtr.2.
Verse riff twice.
Bridge riff 4 times.
Interlude riff 4 times.
Chorus riff 4 times.
Gtr.1's fill 4 times.
Bridge riff 2 times, with solo.
Intro riff 8 times, last 4 doubled by gtr.2.
Verse riff twice.
Bridge riff 4 times.
Interlude riff 4 times.
Chorus riff 4 times.

Well, that is it.  I hope to transcribe the solo sometime soon.

Notation Key:

h=hammer on
p=pull off
/ = ascending slide
\ = descending slide
b=note bend
*=palm mute

This is Dethroned Emperor, not Morbid Tales, isn't it?

this is actually Dethroned Emperor, whirleygig has a point.
doesn't really sound like Morbid Tales either, should have been a clue.
