Now, when ended Verse 2, play intro riff again, however, also add Part 2 in the beginning. Now there's this synt bridge coming, wich I've also transcribed. Bridge Lord of all Noldor A star in the night And a bearer of hope He rides into his glorious battle alone Farewell to the valiant warlord

Chorus 4x The Fate of us all Lies deep in the dark When time stands still at the iron hill It was EXTREMLY hard to figure out the chorus, and I don't think it's really right, but anyway, it sounds pretty nice.
The Fate of us all... Lies deep in the Dark...E|-------------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------------|G|-------------------------------------------------|D|-------------------5-5-5-------------------3-3-3-|A|----5----5----5----3-3-3----3-----3-----3--1-1-1-|e|----3----3----3-------------1-----1-----1--------|
Keep on playing that riff throught the whole chorus, the timing is, well, worthless. Actually, I don't think the fast A# and C powerchords really should be there. I just thought it sounded well, without them the chorus would be too dull on guitar. Solo 1

Verse 5 4x Slowly in fear The dark lord appears Welcome to my lands You shall be damned Is almost like Verse 1, just that it's played one whole and a half step higher.
