Artist - Iron maiden 
song   - Out of the silent planet

Its without a solo though.

Enjoy!

The verse is quite difficult to tab. I think that one guitar strums these notes quickly while the others just play the chords. Listen to the song to hear the guitar which does this. The sound level is quite low on it because the bass guitar drowns it out. pre chorus 'The punishment is death'

'Out of the silent planet, dreams of desolation, Out of the silent planet, come the demons of creation.'

when this chorus is played the second time around (2 mins 49 seconds into the song), it goes like this- Riff F

I don't think this bit is palm muted. One guitar keeps playing this under the mimic lines Below is the fill played over the the top of the chorus riff above. Listen for the timing. Fill 1

I suggest that now you go up to the bottom end of the guitar, because it makes the bends easier in my opinion.
