Chapter X is the tenth album from Swedish Metal band Tad Morose.  The band celebrates 27 years of making music with this record, and original guitarist Christer Krunt Andersson leads a line up consisting of vocalist Ronnie Hemlin, who joined in 2008; guitarist Kenneth Jonsson, 2012, new bassist Johan Lofgren, and drummer Peter Moren, who has been in the band since 1994.  Chapter X  is a well produced, good sounding Progressive/Power Metal record for the region of the world producing arguably the best Metal music in the world right now.  Lyrically and musically dark, the 14 songs on Chapter X yield about an hour of music that leave the listener feeling, well, a tad morose.

Reminiscent at times of King Diamond, there is a sort of darkness that permeates, and if that’s your thing, this is the record for you.  Very strong performances make this a very solid record, with chops a plenty, from vocals to guitars to drums.  Tasteful use of more progressive elements keep the record listenable, never veering so far into technicality that it becomes tedious.  Overall, Chapter X is a good listen for Tad Morose fans, Progressive and Power Metal fans, and Black Metal fans.

    Stevie was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio. He is currently the lead guitarist for Melodic Rock band Red Reign, based in Richmond, Virginia, USA. Red Reign toured with Tesla in 2017, and shared the stage with Dokken, FireHouse, Lita Ford, Kix, Quiet Riot, and others at various dates around the US in 2018. Stevie heard his first KISS record at the age of 6 and was immediately hooked on Rock and Roll guitar. Over the course of years his tastes evolved, graduating from KISS to Ozzy and Van Halen; and then into Hair Metal. Over time, harder and faster music drew him. Bands like Metallica, Pantera, and Anthrax led the way, and Killswitch Engage took him over the top. Stevie has a deep passion for the guitar, not only playing them, but building them as well.
