3.0 out of 5 stars Strangely uninspired May 5 2002
By g
Format:Audio CD
I'm a great Helloween-fan , both the old " real" group
when Kiske was singing in the shift 80/90 and the
modern CD:s with Andy Deris.
However ; even if the musicmanship as always is
100 % flawless - this album can not , in any way ,compete
with " Better than raw " or , say " The Dark Ride ".
The songs don't have the same flow,hooks or melodies
that You would expect from this institution in fine
powerish metal. I hate to say this because I like Helloween
and put my good money into this CD ; - but it really
does not meet with the high expextations that such a
legendary band has to justify. With exception for
" Kings will be Kings" and " Everything my Mama don't like "
it's rather...well uninpiring.
I You still want to try it , please testlisten before buying-
so my unsatisfying purchase at least can help others.
Well that's it - a little note is that Andy Deris actually
is doing a really great vocal job here - unfortunately
it is not matched by the songwriting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better and heavier than the previous Feb. 6 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a punch in the face.Straight metal,pletoric of positive attitude and a powerful sound.Beautiful "Forever and One",and a very dark title-cut.In this album,the guys decided to set free the creativity that seemed to be lost somewhere in the road,and makes "Master of the Rings" look as a good album,but still a pale shade of how far they could go.Still,Michael Weikath's tunes seem to sound pretty much the same.Thanks that he can count on Grapow,Deris and Kusch,who definitely took command of the whole Helloween affair.This is how a band can react to the demmands of the audiences as times change without selling their beliefs or putting out horrid albums.Ok,ok,not all is roses in this album,and some songs fail miserably in the attempt of the band of not sounding too pompous,stuffy or serious.But in an integral sense,the album shows off growth of the new lineup,and a good chemistry in song writing.The highlights?"Power",the title cut,"Before the War"(a beautifully heavy Tchaikovski-like that proves Deris a great songwriter),and of course,"Forever and One".A must-have for metal fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great European Metal! July 7 2000
Format:Audio CD
Helloween's follow-up to their great 1994 MASTER OF THE RINGS album, THE TIME OF THE OATH picks up where that album left off. Combining their KEEPER OF THE SEVEN KEYS style with PAINKILLER-era Judas Priest and shades of Yngwie Malmsteen, TTOTO shows Helloween at their best. THE TIME OF THE OATH is their second album with singer Andi Deris and drummer Uli Kusch, and both prove to be invaluable as both their performances AND their songwriting are top-notch. The album ranges in style from their brand of melodic (near) Speed Metal ("We Burn," "Steel Tormentor," "Before The War," and "Kings Will Be Kings"), to very catchy straight-ahead Metal ("Wake Up The Mountain," and "A Million To One") to (what I hesitate to call) Power Ballads ("Forever And One," and "If I Knew"), to the Steve Vai/Steve Stevens influenced "Anything My Mama Don't Like." Less Germanic and more British in style than KEEPER, TTOTO forges ahead with a truly classy Euro-Metal style. At a time when Iron Maiden was disappointing many fans, Helloween took their music up to the next level and picked up the slack. TTOTO is a GREAT album! If you don't have both this album and MASTER OF THE RINGS, you should!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helloween is back! Feb. 18 2000
Format:Audio CD
On the whole, "Time of the Oath" is an excellent album, harkening back to the classic "Keeper of the Seven Keys" sound. Andi Deris provides some tremendous songwriting on "We Burn" and "Before the War" (probably the fastest song on the album)... "Anything my Mama Don't Like" is very Pink Cream 69-ish, while "Forever & One (Neverland)" rounds out the Deris contributions on a mellow note... Michael Weikath contributes heavily as well with the excellent "Steel Tormentor" and the classic sounding "Kings Will Be Kings" (this track in particular has a double guitar solo reminiscent of the awesome "How Many Tears")... the slow "If I Knew" is fairly decent, while the 9 minute opus "Mission Motherland" is, simply put, astounding... Roland Grapow contributes only one song to the album, but what a doozy: "The Time of the Oath" is one hell of a song, highlighted by another excellent double guitar solo... The biggest surprise, however, is drummer Uli Kusch, who contributes the excellent "Wake up the Mountain" and "A Million to One", along with the amazing bonus track "Take it to the Limit", a song that makes one wonder where this guy learned to write like this! Last but never least, bassist Markus Grosskopf contributes "Still I Don't Know", an import bonus track which I personally consider to be the best track on the entire album. This album is Helloween at their hardest & best, and is a must for any fan that considers himself (or herself) a true listener of real Heavy Metal...
