(GMR Music Group - 2018)
I came across Tad Morose when they were promoting their 1997 album A Mended Rhythm, but when they took a long break after the 2003 album Modus Vivendi I somehow missed their return to the scene with Revenant in 2013 resp St. Demonius (2015). Now they are back with Chapter X, for me the first time I hear Tad Morose with singer Ronny Hemlin (ex-Steel Attack).
Next in line is Come Morpheus which has offers melodic guitar leads accompanying heavy riffs and powerful vocals. This one has a dark edge... somehow. Time to speed up! Deprive Of Light is a fast, riff-based tune with melodic vocals and hymnic chorus. Personally I don't really like the high pitched vocal parts, I think Ronny Hemlin is doing much better in the deep range. After some fast tunes and mid-paced tracks it's time to slow down a bit for Leviathan Rise, a decent track.
With Nemesis they have an epic up-tempo tune to offer. Quite good. At Slaves To The Dying Sun it's the vocals... well, I just don't like his high-pitched vocals and so this one can't win me over. Even if musically I like the track. Luckily they are back on track with the fast Turn To Dust! Towards the end of the album they offer a mix of mid-paced and up-tempo tracks. The closer is called Yet Still You Preach and is a balladesque heavy rocker.
One of my favourites is I Am Night which offers some neo-classic guitar passages, great hooks and even some growls!
This is the 6th studio album the Swedish release since they were founded in the early 90's; their debut was released in 1993 though Black Mark Productions.
