Only the bottom four strings required for this tune, so I'll leave out
the first two.

Riff B below I had to make a guess on, 'cause it's hard to hear and
really fast.  It'd be great if people told me if they think it's
close or not.

Time signature changes are shown like this:
|----
|3:--
|4:--
|----

This means to repeat the last two measures:
----|//--
--*-//---
---//-*--
--//|----

As usual, guitars are tuned to Eb.  Hanneman has the left stereo channel.

Starting Tempo: 145 bpm

Both Gtrs play Riff D 2x with lyrics:

  Death's an art, flesh and earth never part
  A power of the mind
  Death shines on the air of silence
  A ritual of endless time

  Purged of your dead body
  Sacrificed of your life
  Unearthly ritual sealed in fire
  Enter the kingdom of desire.

However, the second time through the pattern, substitute the following
