This song is tuned down to Eb. Heavy. Bring all of your strings down by a half step. Sometimes this is done so the vocalist can sing in a comfortable range. But in this case, it's a whole lot of screaming, so just go with it! Makes it sound dense and thick. Dial in a very chunky Marshall type sound with humbuckers. The distortion should fill up all the space. IMPORTANT: Many of the heavy tones coming out of this song are actually played by the bass!
