                              BITTER PEACE
                From their '98 album 'Diabolus in Musica'

Tabbed by:  Jason Mathie

Comments:

I will only show the bottom three strings throughout this tab.

Guitars are drop-Db tuned, which means tune to Eb but drop the sixth
string to Db.  Hanneman is the LeftGtr and King the RightGtr.

Play Riff D with lyrics:

  Global tension starts aggression
  Peace breaks out then breeds contempt, unrest

Play Riff B2, but change the last bar to 9/8.  This is a very subtle
transition, be careful not to get caught off the beat.

Then RightGtr plays the following while LeftGtr solos:

Play Riff E with lyrics:

  Without a reason to fight                             A time to kill
  Sick lust for skeletal flesh                   A taste for all decay
  Enter the soldier blind                   Stalking the faceless hunt
  There is no conscience in this world   That can be reached for peace

Play Riff E with lyrics:

  Why face the human question                         The need to hate
  Dead stare through cynical eyes                 A trust in only pain
  Murder within the skin                        Engrave the art of war
  Become death's vile parade        March on, embrace the violent mind

Then play:        Can't stop the warring factions!

Listen closely to the picking rhythms Hanneman plays while King solos.
Damn, I wish I could play that tight.
