I finally decided to release my tabs to the public (check the bottom for the 
reason why I didn't in the first place).

Tuning: Here is Stephen's REAL tuning G#,C#,F#,B,E,G#,C#. Thats 4 steps down
from regular tuning and 1 1/2 steps down for 7 string. I play these on a regular
Guitar so I don't have the extra C# but it still sounds 99-100% correct.

if this doesnt sound right maybe try replacine the 8's with maybe the 1st or 
7th fret on the same string the 8's are on

(riff 2 once and then riff 3 once )

a little chord thing is played with mild distortion right before the 
chorus..
i think its somthing like this...

D|-------------------------------------------
A|-3--33--3----------------------------------
F|-2--22--2----------------------------------
C|-0-------0---------------------------------

chorus

D|-------------------------------------------
A|-------------------------------------------
F|--2---------9------------------------------
C|--0---------7------------------------------
G|--0---------7------------------------------
C|--0---------7------------------------------

theres a small ringing tone thing that comes in once in a while im sure 
frank
does some sort of sample to get that but i kind of got it on guitar, you 
need
to have a smooth distortion, slight chorus, and volume swell.

all you do is, start the bend from 17 to 19 at the same time slowly doing a 
volume
swell, and then bring the bend backdown to 17 as you finish the 
swell..listen
to the song to get it better

D|-------------------------------------------
A|---17b19r17--------------------------------
F|-------------------------------------------
C|-------------------------------------------
G|-------------------------------------------
C|-------------------------------------------

this is more or less the bridge after the chorus the 2nd time around

(on this part you play the 7779xx chord most but right before switching back to 
3335xx slide up to 99911xx play that a few times fast and back down to the 3335xx chord)

D|-----------------------------------------------------------
A|-----------------------------------------------------------
F|---5----2----9-9------5---2--------------------------------
C|---3----0----7-9------3---0--------------------------------
G|---3----0----7-9------3---0--------------------------------
C|---3----0----7\9------3---0--------------------------------

and right aroudn the end of the song some slow clean chords are being played 
i think it sound somthing like this

play around with these chords and listen to the song to get it right

Well, I see that all the songs on this album are on the tunning above said, 
so i made a try for tab the
song of Deathblow using this tunning. According that i have a standard six 
strings acoustic guitar, the song
is made on a 7 strings baritone (or 6 strings baritone), so it may sound 
wierd on your guitar. Comments: see at the end.\/

Intro
C#------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
<<This is the string that i don't have.
G#------------------------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------

C#--------------3-5-2222-5-22222-5-2---------------3-5-2222-5-22222-5-----
G#------------------------------------------------------------------------

little part before the chorus

C#---------------------------- <<This string may be played in 3, 2 or 0 or 
not played. i really don't know cause i don't have this string.
G#-333-3^3---333-3^3---------- ^ bend up
E--222-2^2---222-2^2----------
B--000-0-0---000-0-0----------
F#----------------------------
C#----------------------------
G#----------------------------

1st Chorus (The ropes hang to keep us all awake...)

C#-----------------------------------------------------
G#-------------------------\/-here is when says "awake"		~ let ring
E--------------------------8~--------------------------play a little low and 
let ring the 6-9-8 note and then play again the
B--------------------------9~--------------------------first part of the 
chorus (5-7-7)
F#--777777777777777777777--6~--777777777777777777777---

Then the intro again played as verse (listening so close it may change or 
variate some parts by don't playing some notes or doing improvisations,
but is almost the same notes)

C#------------------------------------------------------------------------

                      /\From here you can modulate the strums and play some 
extra notes or open strings, but this is basically the main part.

Well, that's all. it may seem too complicated, but if you see, some riffs 
are repeated, and every chorus you add a little ones and repeat
others. just listen carefully to know when play each part of the song, and 
you'll get it.
At last, in the outro is only an aproximation. you can play some things that 
fit in the song, that you think that is right.

NOTE:
~ let ring
x muted string
/ slide forward (eg. 3/12) >>slide from 3rd fret to 12 fret.
\ slide backward (eg 12\3) >>slide from 12 fret to 3rd fret
