Tad Morose is a Swedish heavy metal band. Formed in Bollnäs, Sweden in 1991, they are led by guitarist Christer “Krunt” Andersson. Their style has been described as “a power/classic heavy metal hybrid with slight progressive tendencies.”
Tad Morose’s original lineup consisted of Christer Andersson, Per-Ola Olsson, and Dan-Erik Eriksson. Their full-length debut was Leaving the Past Behind, released in 1993. In the subsequent decade the band went through numerous lineup changes, with Andersson as the only consistent member, and released a total of seven albums. The band released Modus Vivendi in 2004, which signaled a shift away from symphonic and progressive metal toward a more traditional metal sound. The band toured for several years after the release of Modus Vivindi, with several more lineup changes including a stint by singer Joe Comeau, but they were unable to return to the recording studio.
Tad Morose reformed in 2013 with a new lineup featuring singer Ronny Hemlin, formerly of Steel Attack. The reformed band released the albums Revenant in 2013 and St. Demonius in 2015, which renewed the band’s European power metal sound. Tad Morose then signed with GMR Music. Their most recent album, Chapter X, was released in June 2018.
