Actually, the last bar of the intro riff goes like this:

-4-3-2--3-4-
-5-4-3--4-5-

It's that evil-sounding...variation, whatever you call it, like in Holy Wars.

It is called a Major Triad.

Well somewhat of a Major Triad. It had the Root and the Major third but not the perfect 5th. Which Major Triad = Root+Major3rd+Perfect5th.
So it is somewhat a Major Triad I guess, not totally sure but based from that.
