Postmortem

	- Slayer

>From the album Reign in Blood.

Transcribed by Rohit Chatterjee

This is the first Slayer song I learned. It is very easy, but you've got to have
a lot of energy to make it sound good.
Tune down 1/2 step.

Lyrics :

Second verse :

Lyrics :

Chanting lines of blind ....

(Rhythm change)

Taste you blood as it ....

(Back to intro)

A chord diagramA majorA note should be included here :

During the second verse, one guitar does the original rhythm, while the
other plays this riff :

Remember that ? It's from the intro.

Okay, after the intro is played for the second time, the tempo changes.

D|--------------------------------6-5-------------------------------------|
A|----7-6-5-----6-5----7-6-5-4-3------------------------------------------|
E|-0--------4-3------0----------------------------------------------------|

 Play twice while the drums fiddle around. When the drums and bass kick in,
 change all notes (except the open A chord diagramE MajorE) to fifth diads. That adds power.

 Then when the drums calm down, switch back to notes, play twice, then back to
 diads, play four times.

 Then hold the Ab5.

B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----6------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----6------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----4------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the drums and bass and one guitar all freeze, and only one guitar plays.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---4-4-4-4--3-3-3-3--6-6-6-6--2-2-2-2--4-4-4-4--3-3-3-3--6-6-6-6--7-7-7-7--|

Once, then the second guitar does an upward gliss, and both do the same thing.
They both play through the lyrics.

Lyrics :

My sinful glares at ....
.. (I've forgotten this bit, I don't have the song on me right now, someone
please
..   put them in )
Come and die with ....

Rhythm :

E|---2-2-2-2-----------------------------2-2-2-2--3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4--|


Play 4 times.

Then back to single note rhythm

Lyrics:

The waves of blood are ....
							 /\
							 ||
					Guitars freeze

I always put in a 12 \ 0 slide on the bass A chord diagramE MajorE string here, it sounds cool.


Then it goes to the F#5, D5, C#5, C5, F#5, G5, A5, A chord diagramAb5Ab5 rhythm, four times,
finally terminating on the A chord diagramE5E5 chord.
