Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: A kick-ass song. Perhaps a little out of character for KISS
but perfectly in line with Gene's demon perona. Dig how Gene mostly
doubles the guitars but takes it two octaves below at times to add
some serious weight to this track.


Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum

UNHOLY
Simmons, Vincent

[Intro: Guitar only]

[Rhy. Fig 1a]
I was there through the ages
Chained snakes to their cages
I have seen you eat your own
[Rhy. Fig 1b]
I'm the cycle of pain
Of a thousand year old reign

[Rhy. Fig 1c]
I'm suicide and salvation
The omen to nations
That you worship on all fours
[Rhy. Fig 2a]
I'm the infection and famine
That's knocking at your door
That's why you're feeling so

[Rhy. Fig 3a]
Unholy
Oh, I was created by man, you know I'm....
[Rhy. Fig 3c]
Unholy
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Rhy. Fig 1a]
I am the incubus
I lay the egg in you
The worm that burrows
Through your brain
[Rhy. Fig 1b]
But you are the beast
That calls me by my name

[Rhy. Fig 1d]
You send your children to war
To serve bastards and whores
So now you know
[Rhy. Fig 2b]
You created me
On the day that you were born

[Rhy. Fig 3a] (2x)
Unholy
I was created by man, yeah I'm the Lord of the flies, you know I'm
Unholy
>From the left hand of power comes the father of lies
[Rhy. Fig 3c]
Unholy - Unholy!

[Rhy. Fig 4] (4x)
[Rhy. Fig 5]

[Rhy. Fig 1e]
I lay you down to sleep
Your soul to keep
Better cross your heart before you die
[Rhy. Fig 2c]
And now you know
Know that you are mine
That's why you're feeling so

[Rhy. Fig 3b] (3x)
Unholy, Unholy, Unholy
[Rhy. Fig 6]
Unholy!!
