This is the most kickass RJA song!!! that has a length of 7:40, so long!!!

played in Drop C. I just converted it to Standard EADGBe for the lazy people
who are too lazy to tune their guitars. Sounds decent too!!! Their Lead Guitarist
named ELIAS used different MeTALLIC EFECTS in this song, I tabbed them too!!!
