Antichrist Superstar

Marilyn Manson



This is my first attempt at tabbing anything so watch out for errors. This
file looks best in courier or mslinedraw.

First off, this song (and most of the others on the album) is in dropped D
tuning. The bass line follows what the guitar plays throughout the song. I'm
not tabbing rythym so listen to the song and figure it out.

Now, to try and make sense of all this

play the intro (try and get whoever is listening to you to do the       "hail" part)
play the second intro
then the verse and sing:
        You built me up with your wishing hell
        I didn't have to sell you
        You threw your money in the pissing well
        You do just what they tell you
play the prechorus:
        Repent, that's what i'm talking about
        I shed the skin to feed the fake
        Repent, that's what i'm talking about
        Whose mistake am I anyway?
Chorus:
        Cut the head off
        Grows back hard
        I am the Hydra
        Now you'll see your star
solo (just make a bunch of feedback, if you've got a floyd rose, or any
floating tremolo really, you can get it to sound perfect)
Verse:
        Prick your finger it is done
        The moon has now eclipsed the sun
        The angel has spread it's wings
        The time has come for bitter things
Prechorus and chorus
Intro:
        The time has come, it is quite clear
        Our Antichrist is almost here...
                                        It is done
Chorus (there's another solo in here, but it sounds like it's just a
        sampled loop of a couple of guitar feeding back, you can mimic it       by
sticking your guitar's pickups in front of your speaker and     going crazy
with the toggle switch, it helps if you have a wah-     pedal although it does
change the tone of the feedback)
Intro

there you have it, it's a pretty simple song when you get the hang of it.
I'm going to tab Irresponsible Hate Anthem when I have the time and i'm
working on Beautiful People, Angel With The Scabbed Wings, and 1996. If
anyone has any requests E-mail me.
