Hi folks. My name is Eduardo Kepczynski.
I had expend many hours listening to this song and trying to play it.
There is little differences between the live and the studio version.
I´m sure it´s not perfect, but it was the most i could do.
It will help everyone who wants to play this awesome song.
Feel free to add some hammer on, pull off, artificial harmonics and palm mute.
Improvisation rules.
I tabbed only a few solos. The fastest ones i didnt.
I will add them soon.

Tune down 1/2 step.

Any doubt or corrections, please send me an e-mail at
I´ll apreciate.


PM = Palm Mute
~ = Vibrato
h = Hammer on
p = Pull off
\ = Slide down
/ = Slide up
b = Bend
rb = Release Bend
@ = Artificial Harmonic

  Lyrics


In a circle of fire
On a cold winter night
I spoke out my desire
Made a promise
I couldn´t hide, no!

In a dream
He came along and told me
"Your time has come
Your mind belongs to me"

It´s the time of the oath
The time of the oath
My sweetest memories die in the cold
It´s the time of the oath

See me covered with sadness
And I´ll soon wish to die
When the overcoming madness
Is eating up my mind

Here and now
I look back at a good time
No more lie - I slowly say good-bye
It´s the time of the oath
The time of the oath
My sweetest memories die in the cold
It´s the time of the oath

In a dream
He came along and told me
"Your time has come
Just slowly say good-bye"

It´s the time of the oath
The time of the oath
My sweetest memories die in the cold
It´s the time of the oath




  Latin:

Di-es i-rae, di-es il-la
Sol-vet sae-cium in fa-villa
Quan-tus tre-mor est fu-tu-rus
Quan-do ju-dex est ven-turus



HAPPY HAPPY HELLOWEEN
