10 years has passed since Swedish premier Prog/Power metal band Tad Morose released any music, some of us thought the band was in hiatus, others thought they disbanded. True to be told, they have been through difficult times as their line up has been inconstant, which resulted on delaying their released for a while, until now.
Tad Morose is one of the bands that helped forged the sound of Progressive Power metal from the beginning, along with bands like Kamelot or Morgana back in the 90’s. Fortunately for us they are back with a new album titled Revenant, which pretty much describes the resurrection and consolidation of them as a band. So much has changed in the music world since Tad Morose released Modus Vivendi back in 2003, digital downloads, the streaming services, and overall a whole new game in the music business. Even though with all the changes, their sound still brings a new light to the metal genre. Songs like, Absence Of Light, Beneath A Veil Of Crying Souls, Babylon, and Timeless Dreaming are powerful and technically precise that it feels like Tad Morose has been in the game all this time.
Revenant reaffirms that even with the test of time Tad Morose continues developing their signature sound, and leading the way on the prog/power metal scene. Tracks like Millenium Lie, Gypsy, and Ares are proof of that. So if you are one of those that craves the old school and have missed, or perhaps was curious about them at some point. Check out Revenant, and enjoy some old school prog/power metal the way it was meant to be.
The Age Of Metal had the chance to speak with guitar player and founding member Christer ‘Krunt’ Andersson. We talked about the band’s moment, what happened during this 10 years, Revenant, and what is next for the band.
