I'm kinda new to music theory and don't have enough experience to understand this:

(Purple is keybord, guitar is ORANGE xD )

Tonic is E, and I think the main chords are Em D C by now. So this part of verse confused me.. is it D-Em-Em-D ?
Or it looks like kind of mixed using of D&Em, which makes it a vague paragraph to background the voice?
Or is it even Em11?
I just finished a book of music theory and try to understand this song logically.
Please tell me anything you come up with, I'm learning, thank you!

(The song is Let This River Flow by Soilwork)

I had a quick look and listen and couldn't put the 2 together in any way!

It seems to be in E Major for the most part, there are C#m and B majors in there


Chorus chords C#m, A, E, B,

Cool song, not heard of them before, added to my Must Check Out list so thanks for that!

The original song is in C# I think, I was too lazy to change my tuning so I raised it by 3 semitone to E minor, forgot to mention that excuse me =D

So chorus chords are Em, C, G, D to me yeah I figured that, thanks for confirming. Yet does it apply to the verse part I drew above? Ah it's from 1:00 of the song
I'm poorly knowledged in this..

Sure man Soilwork is my favorite melodic death metal band!

Your ear did the job excellently. I raised the tune so you were misled by me claiming the tonic was E, thus you thought it was E major, because E major = C# minor, which is right
