The bridge ups the tempo and introduces a crushing new riff. It's quite a shift in feel, as we now have upped the tempo to 130 bpm!

The riff itself is based on the F# blues scale; that C power chord is the flat 5 in the scale, giving an evil heavy metal type sound.

Also check out how the first half is played wide open, then you clamp down with some tight palm muting on the second half, adding some tension and drama to the bridge.
