I got a request to improve on the existing tab for this song. 
 
Comments: 
 
Only the necessary strings are used for each riff. 
 
No leads, but all the riffs are here. 
 
|--6\\\5--|  This means to slide from 6 to 5, without picking the 2nd 
note. 
|---------| 
|--6\\-5--|  This means to slide from 6 to 5, picking the 2nd note. 
 
Guitars are tuned to Eb.  Hanneman on left stereo channel, King the right. 
 
Generally one dash is a sixteenth note in length.  So ---- is one beat. 
Otherwise, -------- is one beat, or a thirty-second note per dash.

  Unknown are the caverns of the mind

  Unbound massive mental energy 
  Your last breaths taken from you easily

  No sense of being missing segments of time 
  Inconsistency is feeding on your mind

Play Riff D 4x with lyrics: 
 
  Mind control, pain unfolds 
  I own all your sensations 
  Weakening, reasoning 
  Mesmeric full demolition 
  Hypnotized, victimized 
  Behold the threshhold to the web 
  Screaming souls fear echoes 
  Piercing boundaries of death

Play Riff A 4x with lyrics: 
 
  Penetration of the window to your soul 
  Deterioration of the mind, no self-control 
  Temporary comprehend no memories 
  Hollow carcass of a man is all I leave 
 
Play Riff B 2x 
Play Riff A 4x with lyrics: 
 
  Execution but a thought in the end 
  Slowly erasing your life and what has been 
  Passing victims in the land of secrecy 
  Cerebral death can come to you in your dreams 
 
Play Riff D 4x

For second solo rythm play a varation of the intro and then a varation of 
the "after solo" riff with power chords. As far for how the solo goes you 
should try throwing your guitar on the floor and dance on it, after that set  
it on fire and you'll be close. That's all.
