4.0 out of 5 stars Jaw-dropping power metal March 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The stars all seemed to be in perfect alignment for Sweden's Tad Morose when they released their 2000 album Undead. They had a powerful new vocalist in Urban Breed, who joined the band with their 1997 release A Mended Rhyme, they moved from Black Mark to major label (at least in the metal world) Century Media, and the power metal scene was experiencing a revival in popularity.

How did Tad Morose capitalize on these developments? By taking their sound to a higher plateau and releasing what at the time was their best album. The vaguely doomy progressive metal sound of earlier Tad Morose albums was replaced with an aggressive, slightly dark, slightly progressive, power metal style that drew heavily from Iron Maiden and Savatage. Coming at a time when so many other power metal bands were doing their best to sound exactly like Helloween, this dynamic style set Tad Morose apart from the pack.

Undead is very heavy, very melodic, and full of hard charging metal anthems. The songs Another Time Around and Corporate Masters are probably the best tracks on Undead, but there really isn't a weak moment. Christer "Krunt" Andersson is a fantastic guitarist, and he proves here that his talents definitely shine in a power metal setting. Urban Breed's vocal performance is the perfect counterpart to Andersson's thunderous riffs. This is where he began to establish himself as one of the best vocalists in metal.

I enthusiastically recommend Undead to all power metal fans, especially those looking for something that doesn't always follow the formulaic approach. It should especially appeal to fans of Savatage, Brainstorm, Symphorce, Thunderstone, and to a lesser extent Evergrey. The best part is that as good as this album is, the band got even better with their next two releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome True Heavy Metal! December 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This release is nothing short of awesome! Tad Morose have a talent of remaining true Heavy Metal with heaviness with uplifting feel. I originally heard them on an internet station that plays traditional metal along with bands of present day that are good enough and talented enough to play similar in style. I was blown away by them and I am very glad to say both the Undead and Modus Vivendi Cd's that I purchased didn't let me down when I took the chance. Believe me if you like bands like Dio, Metal Church, Fates Warning, Crimson Glory and Savatage you will love them! They are similar to these bands but still know how to do it so it's their own special mix of melodic HEAVY METAL. Great vocals, cranking guitars and drums with just the right touch of double bass without overdueing it. I can say I have another favorite new metal band who has earned the right to be considered along with Hammerfall as the new bread of classic metal!

4.0 out of 5 stars high 3/low 4 rating June 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
On "Undead" Tad Morose have left their slightly progressive doom metal sound for a slightly progressive power metal sound. Keyboards are much less prominent, and the guitars are more aggressive. Overall, I think this is a positive development, not because I generally prefer power to doom, but because Tad Morose seems to do the former better: my favorite song on the previous album, "A Mended Rhyme," was the upbeat "Trader of Souls."
I bought this album after hearing "Another Time Around," a great song available for download at the Century Media website. Unfortunately, it turns out that "Another Time Around" is the best song on the CD, though "Where the Sun Never Shines," with a chorus that reminds me of Dream Theater, is also highly worthy. The rest of the album fits basically into the "pretty good" category. Vocalist Urban Breed is technically very competent, though I can't say that his somewhat rough style is my favorite. The guitars are crunchy and sometimes complex; they do this part of the music better than Nocturnal Rites on their last album but not as well as, say, Jacobs Dream. For power metal completists, this album is definitely recommended. For general metal fans, it may be something to pick up used.
