It's in standard....but I'm guessing by your reaction that they slowed down or sped up the record so it's a little out of tune. Just tune your A to the song, and then tune your guitar to the A

It's a bit flat. remember when it was recorded, electronic tuners weren't around, so they probly just tuned to each other.

for that song, it's 1/4 step down, because tuners weren't around, so it is a bit flat.

Heard that it was a problem when they were recording that it got slightly slowed down during the mixing/mastering process which resulted with it being a 1/4 note below Standard, Some pantera songs are like this but thats done on purpose
