27-years and still running! Sweden's Tad Morose just keep pushing the heavy load year after year. 'Chapter X' of course marks record number ten (counting the 'Paradigma' EP). The band have the formula down--sweeping guitars, buzzing heaviness and ultra-clean vocals. While sometimes incorporating a doomy moodiness, it never fails to capture the European pageantry of the power and traditional metal sound. 'Chapter X' notches just below the last few records but still places a remarkable attention to riffs, writing and production. Krunt and the boys...well done!
