The third time around is when the F power chord comes in It's the last chord on the chords used above. It's played over the rhythm part with crazy effects and meant to let ring. Im not gonna tab it but you'll know where it is

This continues for the rest of the song...its not just these chords though..the other riffs are playing as well..use some palm muting and hit only the top 2-3 strings as well to give that heavy sound. The whole song is really just a few riffs but it sounds great when they're all played together live. If you got any questions, lemme know...emails at the top Cheers
