Blackened by Metallica

Transcription by Jeff Davis (4th revision)

Notation:

. - palm mute

h - hammer on

p - pull off

! - I used these to glue the dots to the page. Huh? (just ignore them).

s/ - slide up these are used for normal

s and ghost slides

\\ - slide down

In general I tried to keep one dash '-' equal to a thirty-second note.

Thus,

|-0---0---0---0--- are eight notes and

|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0- are sixteenth notes.

E||-- -||

B||-- -||

G||*- These mark the beginning and the *||

D||*- end of a section to be repeated. *||

Lyrics

Blackened is the end

Winter it will send

throwing all you see

into obscurity

Death of Mother Earth

Never a rebirth

Evolution's end

Never will it mend

Never

Fire

To begin whipping dance of the dead

Blackened is the end

To begin whipping dance of the dead

Color of our world Blackened

Blistering of Earth

Terminate its worth

Deadly Nicotine

Kills what might have been

Callous frigid chill

Nothing left to kill

Never seen before

Breathing nevermore

Never

Fire

To begin whipping dance of the dead

Blackened is the end

To begin whipping dance of the dead

Color of our world Blackened

Blackened

Opposition Contradiction Premonition Compromise

Agitation Violation Mutilation Planet Dies

Darkest Color

Blistered Earth

True death of life

Termination Expiration Cancellation Human Race

Expectation Liberation Population Lay to waste

See our Mother

Put to death

See our Mother die.

Smouldering decay

Take her breath away

Millions of our years

In minutes disappears

Darkening in vain

Decadence remains

All is said and done

Never is the sun

Never

Fire

To begin whipping dance of the dead

Blackened is the end

To begin whipping dance of the dead

Fire

Is the outcome of hypocrisy

Darkest potency

In the exit of humanity

Color our world Blackened

Blackened
