I agree with you on their back catalog; it's sensational. The new album is just paint-by-numbers Power Metal.
|3.5 great||Robert Davis CONTRIBUTOR | January 5th 14|
Pretty good album, even if every song pretty much follows the same formula. It's essentially an album full of punchy powerful songs and soaring vocals, just like consistent power metal should be. Not sure why it's labelled here as "progressive" power metal (I myself can't see where the progressive part comes in), but it'd definitely consistent as a power metal album. A few weak tracks on here such as 'Follow', 'Ares' and 'Absence of light' disappointed me a little, but that's probably only because they're overshadowed by stronger songs such as excellent opener 'beneath a veil of crying souls' and 'Within a dream'.

Tad Morose have started climbing again that very mountain, whose summit they had conquered in 2003 with Modus Vivendi. The difference now is that the climbing has started from a higher point with respect to the band level right after the A Mended Rhyme album in the mid '90s. The first half of the record is what awesome Swedish power/doom/thrash metal is all about, while the second half continues in the same vein, albeit with a minor, but perceivable discount in quality. With less (8) songs, and a more careful song proofreading, things would be better, but the band is starting all over again and some inconsistency is justified up to a point. Also, the sound production, while crystal clean and strong in principle, cannot conceal its digital origin and the noticeable amount of power detracted from the album overall.
