Ten years…..ten long years is what it took for Tad Morose to resurface from “Modus Vivendi,” a universally loved piece of metal greatness. Through about five years of that time it was talk of “would Urban ever return”? In 2008, Ronny Hemlin was on board, but still Tad Morose appeared to be mired in an extended hiatus. The return - appropriately titled “Revenant” - was announced and longtime fans rejoiced. Although times have changed and their style is not as popular as it used to be back then, the fans of early 2000’s metal, and the fans of the band, will definitely enjoy this release to the maximum.

Since their album "A Mended Rhyme" - one of the best heavy/power metal bands in the recent decade. Since mentioned album they have only done better albums for each time. "Undead" was better and showed a heavier direction, and then came the even greater "Matters Of The Dark". In 2003 they released this one, "Modus Vivendi", which is a album really damn close to perfection.

"Matters of the Dark" was released in early 2002. This album continued on the heavier path set on the previous release "Undead" and was recorded at the same studio. In spring of 2002 the band set off for a European tour together with NWOBHM legends Demon and the German band Chinchilla. Various shows around Sweden followed and even saw the band performing 2 shows in 2 different cities at the same night! In June TAD MOROSE made their first show in the US at the Milwaukee Metal Fest.

"Undead" is the fifth studio album, released in 2000 on the Century Media label. This disc is un-freaking-believable. Tad Morose have been trying to go in the direction of greater accessibility and heavier, more powerful riffs. Two shots in that direction didn't work as well as they'd have liked with Paradigma and A Mended Rhyme. This disc hits the nail absolutely square and hits it in such a way that you'll never have want for another nail in your life. This disc is amazing.

The Swedish heavy metal band Tad Morose was originally formed in 1991, and although numerous members have passed through their ranks over the years, the only constant member has been founding guitarist Christer "Krunt" Andersson. Starting off as a vocal/guitar/bass/drum quartet, the band added a keyboardist to the lineup by 1993, the same year Tad Morose recorded their first demo tape (inking a recording deal with Black Mark Production shortly thereafter). Black Mark released the “Reflections” album, which is a compilation album of TAD MOROSE songs previously released by Black Mark.

"A Mended Rhyme" is the fourth album by the Swedish metal band Tad Morose. This also happens to be their first album with Urban breed on vocals. The song structures, melodies and vocal lines are very unique and never follows any usual pattern. The whole album is extremely enjoyable and it's hard to choose any highlights but the keyboard driven title track and the haunting Goddess of Chaos are two of the best. Brilliant, cliché-free, original Progressive Power Metal with doomy elements and world-class-vocals, that's TAD MOROSE, period!

Most bands who release EPs do it mostly to introduce their new sound to their fans. The EP is followed by a full-length if the responses are positive enough, so most of them seem incomplete. Paradigma is a big exception. Although it consists of merely five tracks and has a total running time of 29 minutes, there is a great sense of unity between all the songs. This is a true 'mini album'. There's a reason for it to feature only so many tracks; it doesn't seem like the band ran out of compositions to release this as a full CD. It's simply that this release doesn't really call for any extra songs.

In mid summer 1994, just two weeks before TAD MOROSE was scheduled to record the second album, Danne quit the band due to personal problems and musical differences. The recordings were postponed until a suitable, replacement could be found. Fortunately, the band recruited Peter Morén, a true soul mate. So, in mid October they once again entered the Wave Station Studio to record Sender Of Thoughts. Shortly thereafter Rossi was replaced by bassist Anders "Modden" Modd, leaving Christer as the only founding member. With this release, TAD MOROSE established themselves as one of the finest acts in Progressive Metal.

While Tad Morose would eventually become a pretty straight forward heavy metal band, they started out with a string of sort-of-progressive metal albums in the 90’s. Their 1993 debut, "Leaving the Past Behind" plays like a bunch of Metallica riffs, stitched together in a vaguely progressive fashion with some Tony Martin era Black Sabbath style vocals and a lot of cheesy keyboard atmospherics on top. There’s a certain soulful edge to many of the vocal melodies (especially the choruses) and some tender keyboard melodies, even though the riffs are often rather muscular in style. This dynamic creates a certain tension and release effect, where melodic choruses and keyboard passages stand in contrast to the choppy, lumbering, heavy passages.
