Tad Morose - Undead

Year of Release: 2001
Label: Century Media
Catalog Number: n/a
Format: CD
Total Time: 45:32:00

This is Tad Morose's 6th album, if you count the compilation CD as well. This is another highly anticipated CD and yet another strong power metal disc is unleashed for the public.

As with the new Nocturnal Rites, Tad Morose has slightly changed their musical approach as well. Gone are the characteristic keys and the slightly doomy touch to their sound. Any comparisons to the old Tad Morose sound would be unnecessary as the old sound is more or less gone. Undead is more straight ahead, mid-paced power metal. The addition of a second guitarist and the fantastic vocals of Urban Breed contribute to making this the heaviest Tad Morose disc ever - still with a melodic touch.

The production is strong and so is the songwriting. The material presented on this disc is very good throughout, and fans of bands like Savatage, Lefay, Sabbath, etc. should get this one immediately. Another classy disc from the Swedes.
