                 Time Stands Still (At The Iron Hill)
                     Nightfall In Middle Earth

P.M[_______________]
                       Verse 2
E|------------------|
B|------------------|    Finally I've found myself
G|-----------8~-7---|    In these lands
D|-5--------------8-|    Horror and madness I'v seen here
A|-3-6-3--6---------|    For what I became a king of the lost?
e|--------4---------|    Barren and lifeless the land lies

Now, when ended Verse 2, play intro riff again, however, 
also add Part 2 in the beginning.

Now there's this synt bridge coming, wich I've also transcribed.

Bridge

  Lord of all Noldor
  A star in the night
  And a bearer of hope
  He rides into his glorious battle alone
  Farewell to the valiant warlord

E|--------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------14--------------------------------|
G|-12-12-13-12-------13-12--12-12-13-12----10-12-12-|
D|-------------13-----------------------13----------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
e|--------------------------------------------------|

Chorus 4x

  The Fate of us all
  Lies deep in the dark
  When time stands still at the iron hill

It was EXTREMLY hard to figure out the chorus, and I don't think it's
really right, but anyway, it sounds pretty nice.

     The Fate of us all... Lies deep in the Dark...
E|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------5-5-5-------------------3-3-3-|
A|----5----5----5----3-3-3----3-----3-----3--1-1-1-|
e|----3----3----3-------------1-----1-----1--------|

Keep on playing that riff throught the whole chorus, the timing is,
well, worthless. Actually, I don't think the fast A# and C powerchords
really should be there. I just thought it sounded well, without them
the chorus would be too dull on guitar.

Verse 4 4x

  He gleams like a star

  Lord of slaves he cries

Verse 5 4x

  Slowly in fear
  The dark lord appears
  Welcome to my lands
  You shall be damned
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/blind_guardian/time_stands_still_tab.html ]
Is almost like Verse 1, just that it's played one whole and a half step higher.

  The iron crowned
  Is getting closer
  Swings his hammer
  Down on him
  Like a thunderstorm
