After this, a keyboard fill is played, followed by riff 10 in slower rhythm. There are bits of solo, which I decided not to include, because I think it is not a significant addition to the song.
The song ends on the C5-chord:|------||------||------||-12==-||-12==-||-10==-|
Followed by noise, and then it transits to 'Portrait of the Dead Countess'.
