I usually love this type of tabs, but here the tuning is WRONG. It shouldn't be in dropped Db tuning, but just Db (all strings 1 1/2 step down.)
I saw a video were the intro is clearly being played that way:
e|---------|---------|
B|---------|---------|
G|*--------|--------*|
D|*--------|--------*|
A|-2--22--2|1--10--0-|
E|-0--03--3|2--21--1-|
... with all strings tuned 1.5 steps down.

Note for beginners:
Db tuning (Db Gb Cb Fb Ab Db) is also known as C# (C# F# B E G# C#) tuning, but it's still 1 1/2 step below standard E tuning.
Slayer experimented with this C# tuning on 2001 "God Hates Us All", which contains the tracks Bloodline and Disciple among others. They used drop-D on their 1998 opus "Diabolus In Musica".
