Label: GMR Music Group
Released:  2018
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: Manos X

Swedish band Tad Morose was created back in 1991 and from 1993 to 2003 they were extremely active releasing six albums with the amazing MODUS VIVENDI coming out in 2003. After that even though the band was still active it took 10 whole years for them to return.

Have to mention that something that always attracted me to Tad Morose metal was the heaviness of their music, their great riffs, clever and to the point songwriting, strong musicianship and of course Urban Breed’s always stellar vocals. Even though Tad Morose have released two albums REVANENT and ST. DEMONIUS with Ronny Hemlin handling the vocals I hadn’t paid any attention. What a mistake!!!!!!| Ronny Hemlin used to front Steel Attack and was always impressed by his powerful singing but have to say I never expected this.

Tad Morose’s CHAPTER X is a fucking monster. All the qualities that attracted me to their music are not only present but amplified to the max. Heavy fucking power metal fused with thrash rhythms, high pitched singing, kick ass riffs and leads and some growls to spice the whole result. All of the above have created an explosive album.

If you’re unaware of Tad Morose think of a mix of Brainstorm, Judas Priest, Primal Fear and maybe a touch of Heaven’s Gate and you’ll get….… Well actually you get Tad Morose. A band that wears its influences like a sleeve but also have plenty of balls and has it’s own music identity. Songs like Deprived of Light and I am Night have stuck to my head for weeks now!!!!!!

If you’re looking for a band that plays with music with a ton of balls without sacrificing melody and good musicianship look no further. Check CHAPTER X now, yes it’s that good!!
