Dance with The Devil...

"Clad in trenchcoat & tophat, the spechtre of King Diamond returns again, to drive his fans insane with chords of madness, & arcane lyrics sung in ghostly rapture. TIME gives us a witch's brew of eclectic ingredients, which are the morbid tales which float through our darkened chambers. A skull glowers from the shadows at us. The lyrical banshee spins & recounts lost stories that stretch forth across the ages. One of the more admirable elements King conjures, besides the music itself, is the usage of forgotten historical events that transpired in those olden days of superstition. He investigates what has become occult from memory, & gives it new life by putting it to song. A true artist. TIME contains eleven splendid tracks which makes one feel like one is sitting "round a balefire under the full moon in the forest, listening to the haunting metal sounds of the night."
ALL FATE WORTH OWNING

"i personally prefer mercyful fate over any of king diamonds solo material.not that his solo stuff is bad,far from it,i just feel that the fate stuff is "darker" and a bit heavier.i am also not a huge fan of the "concept" album,which most of king's albums are...
anyway,the cd in question is incredible.very catchy,heavy everything you would expect from mercyful fate.in order of preference,i feel that this album is just behind the first two classics and IN THE SHADOWS.this album is full of inspired songwriting and playing.well worth your TIME(sorry for the pun...)"

"After the reunion of Mercyful Fate in '93, it seems the boys had so much fun back together, another album was therefore released. "Time" is a pleasant surprise. it's very basic in its approach. It's not meant to be a "Don't Break the Oath"-type release, but just a simple heavy metal album that get's its point out with trying to impress us. D'Angelo does a nice job of filling in for Timi Hansen. But the biggest surprise is Snowy Shaw. After rumored to not have actually played the drums the King Diamond album, "The Eye", and missed the studio session for Fate's "In the Shadows", fans finally get to hear Shaw perform. And the drums do shine! And this is the only Diamond/Fate album he's on(except for the Mercyful Fate mini-Live disc, "The Bell Witch"). Shermann and Denner are brilliant as ever, and king, well, he's the King! Songs such as "Nightmare Be Thy Name", "Angel of Light", "Witch's Dance", "Time", and "Mirror" really stand out. A nice basic metal for old school headbangers."
