Tuning:There is a bit of discrepancy of whether or not this is in C standard or D
standard. For this tab, however, I am in D STANDARD. 






  All of those 3's and 2's and 10's are randomly represented below. Those are the correct
notes, but not the correct value of each note. Just listen to the song.

Stop once Shagrath starts singing again. This is the part that makes me wonder if Dimmu Borgir changed tunings between cds.

Play that twice. After that, Play those top couple bars as you hear them being played. Clear singing part:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|D|-7-----------------2-------------------------------------------------------|A|-7-----------------2-------------------------------------------------------|E|-5-----------------0-------------------------------------------------------|
Play that until you hear chord changes, which are:e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|D|-3---------7--------3----------------------------------------2-------------|A|-3---------7--------3----------------------------------------2-------------|E|-1---------5--------1----------------------------------------0-------------| these aren't in proper order, but it finishes on the D5 chord ^
Then it's this little doohickey then that slide riff some more.

Repeat until you feel good about yourself, then thelast to notes are palm mute D5.
