July 29th, 2010

Finished a few Graveyard songs, more to follow.

April 23rd, 2010

Finished "This Place Is Terrible" and "House Of God".

April 11th, 2010

Finished a few little songs, "Goodbye", "Passage To Hell", "Peace Of Mind", and Mercyful Fate's "SH". That song is a bonus track from the Japanese version of the "9" album. If you've never heard it you can probably find it on youtube.

March 23rd, 2010

Finished solos and bass for all of the Abigail II songs. Some "House Of God" and "Voodoo" songs coming up next.

February 12th, 2010

Finished solos and bass for a few more Abigail II songs.

January 23rd, 2010

September 21st, 2009

Changed to a better discussion board, check it out. The link is on the main page, or just click below: DISCUSSION BOARD

August 23rd, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for every KD/MF album. "Conspiracy", "The Eye", and "The Spider's Lullabye" rounded it out and now they're all done. The only songs that were not checked were the three songs that appear on Return Of The Vampire. Maybe I'll check those in the future but their demo level production makes it hard to hear and the tabs already up are probably pretty good anyway. So now a break and then solos will soon appear.

July 22nd, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "Abigail" and "THEM" albums. Next up, "Conspiracy".

June 10th, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "Fatal Portrait" album.

May 31st, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "The Beginning" album. Probably going to go back and finish the remaining King Diamond albums now.

May 12th, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "Don't Break The Oath" album. Lots of changes in "Night Of The Unborn", "A Dangerous Meeeting", and "To One Far Away" so be sure to check those out.

April 22nd, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "Melissa" album. "Into The Coven" acoustic intro may still need updating but it's closer than before. Also finished solos for "The Puppet Master", "Magic", "Emerencia", and "Blue Eyes". Bass was added for all of those except "Emerencia" as well, so those songs are 100% and the PDFs can be found on the tab page. A note about the PDFs, you need to have powertab installed, or at least the font, or else you probably will not be able to see the tabs correctly.

April 2nd, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "In The Shadows" album, next up is probably "Melissa".

March 25th, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "9" album, next up "In The Shadows".

March 17th, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "Dead Again" album, next up is probably "9".

February 17th, 2009

Finished all the rhythms for the "Time" album, and finished "Kutulu". Next up, the "Dead Again" album.

February 9th, 2009

Finished "Welcome Home" finally. Also, all the rhythms for the "Into The Unknown" album have been fixed, except there is still a missing guitar in the interlude for "Kutulu", that will be added eventually.

February 1st, 2009

All of the "Abigail 2" songs have been updated for the rhythms. "Into the Unknown" album next.

January 27th, 2009

All of the Graveyard songs have been updated for the rhythms, check'em out because quite a few fixes. Abigal II album next, then maybe a Fate album, Into the Unknown probably.

January 7th, 2009

All of the Puppet Master songs have been updated for the rhythms, and "So Sad" has been 100% completed. As with the other albums, some important changes made so be sure to check out the new tabs. Despite what has been said in the past I feel this round of updates will be the last one needed. I'm pretty sure the only thing that could be changed in the future would be very minor things such as one guitar only playing the roots of a powerchord or slides/positions/etc. So rest assured, no more relearning of songs once we're done. Next up is most likely the Graveyard album and then Abigail II. Then I'll probably just work backwards from The Spider's Lullabye.

January 3rd, 2009

Put up "Victimized" and "Sleepless Nights", 100% finished for guitar. The bass is in there as a bonus right now, it still needs to be polished and put into text format, but at least something is there for now. The Voodoo album has been completely updated for rhythms, some big some little so be sure to check it out, especially "One Down Two To Go" with the tuning change to the acoustic guitar. The Puppet Master album is almost finished with the rhythm updates, then on to The Graveyard and Abigail II. "Welcome Home" is still being worked on for solos, should be done soon.

December 23rd, 2008

Time to start up again. The final two songs from the new album have been finished, so "Cold As Ice" and "Give Me Your Soul" are 100% done and uploaded. The rhythm text tabs for all of the House Of God songs have been updated and are now finished. Solos, bass, power tabs, etc. will be added in the future. My goal right now is while I'm working on solos I'll keep finishing the updates on rhythms, hence the House of God updates while I"m finishing the solos for Welcome Home. There were quite a few updates for these House of God songs so be sure to check them out. Next up are the Puppet Master and Voodoo albums. I've already fixed some things in "LOA House" so these will be updates you'll want to check out too. And by the way, complete 100% versions of Victimized and Sleepless Nights are coming up as well. The solos are done, just need to polish them and fix the bass a little. Welcome Home is about 90% finished too. So keep an eye out because updates are going to come pretty quickly for awhile. Enjoy!

December 19th, 2007

Put up most of the MIDIs for the new album.

November 4th, 2007

Put up some more songs 100% Finished. Only missing two songs and they're very close to being finished.

September 6th, 2007

Fixed a typo/error in Riff 8 of "Mirror, Mirror". The missing solos should be up soon, we're just doing one final run through to make sure we caught any possible mistakes.

August 1st, 2007

Finished everything for "Moving On".

July 17th, 2007

Finished everything for "Is Anybody Here?".

July 7th, 2007

Finished all the rhythm tabs and bass tabs, time for solos. Remember that some little things can still change in the rhythms, sometimes we overlook something and have to make an edit. But when the "[100%] Done" mark is next to the song, then you can be almost sure it's finished and 100%.

July 1st, 2007

Fixed a few small things with "The Cellar".

June 29th, 2007

Finished all guitars for "The Cellar". "Shapes Of Black" is also finished.

June 26th, 2007

Ok, the new King Diamond album has been released in the states. Check the album page for the rhythm text tabs that are finished already. The others will be added very shortly. Solos, bass, and MIDI files will be added as well, it's just they take a little longer. So as stated before, after the new album is 100% finished, we'll begin moving on to older songs to finish those as well. Enjoy the tabs! Big thanks goes to Rami for pretty much fleshing all these tabs out before hand. It's a lot easier working a song out after someone has laid out the riffs for you. So he deserves a lot of credit for these.

June 12th, 2007

Big changes coming for the Tab Crypt. It's time to finally go through and complete the songs. The basic plan is we're going to start with the upcoming album "Give Me Your Soul...Please!" and then just pick songs to finish at random. We're going to finish all the solos, make sure everything is as accurate as possible, then have Power Tab/Guitar Pro/PDF versions of them, as well as MIDIs and bass tabs. This will be a very long project but some songs are already finished. I've marked the finished songs with a "[100%]" but you can also just see if a PDF file exists, as that's the sign of the song being 100% finished, at least for the guitars. The bass will be added as they are completed. The finished songs so far are "Black Horseman", "Killer", "Insanity", "Heads On The Wall", and "Never Ending Hill". Also, the emphasis will be on King Diamond for now. Mercyful Fate songs will just have to wait. While we do all this the tabs that are already up will remain, but as a song is finished we will get rid of anything that doesn't reflect the finished product, such as outdated Guitar Pro files ... until we can update them.

January 28th, 2003

Welcome to the new home of The Tab Crypt! The format for the tab pages has been changed so that we can let you download a zip file containing all the tabs for an album. The zip file will not be updated every time a tab changes, so look at the album page and you'll see which songs have been updated since the zip file was last updated. After a significant amount of changes, the zip file will be updated as well. We won't make zip files for ALL the tabs on this site because then it would be too easy for someone to steal them. It's sad that stuff like that happens, but it does. On that note, if you see our tabs on any site and the names and/or URL for The Tab Crypt have been removed, please let us know. It should be easy to tell which tabs came from this site as we have a pretty unique formatting layout. In around a month, the site will undergo a slight cosmetic change. Album pages will get a new look as far as colors and backgrounds go, but the tables will remain the same. A new guestbook is being worked on too. As far as tabs go, Abigail 2 has been updated. Mostly it was just a few notes here and there, but we just wanted to let you know. So we hope you keep enjoying The Tab Crypt! Spread the word of the URL change if you could, and let everyone know where to find tabs for "Puppet Master" when it is released: The Tab Crypt. Final note, our email address has changed too, so please update accordingly. It is now: thetabcrypt@abysslord.com
