This is probably my favourite "At The Gates" song. I do not have the
original, so I had to transcribe it from the live version on "Terminal
Spirit Disease". It is all correct as far as I can tell. Still, you
really need a bass during some parts of this song in order to produce
the right chord/sound.

Song: The Burning Darkness
Albumn: Terminal Spirit Disease
Transcribed by: Warrick McPherson
E-mail: sirwarrick@hotmail.com

Tuning: I'm guessing this is played on a 7-string, or you can
just tune both of the guitars down to B.

Notation:

M - Palm mute
H - Hammer on
P - Pull off
S - Slide
B - Bend
A - Artificial Harmonic

After you have played through this riff twice, go back and play
riff 5 again. Then play this next riff.

That is the whole song from start to finish. I am pretty sure it is all
correct, so if you read it carefully you won't have any problems.
