The Swedish heavy metal band Tad Morose was originally formed in 1991, and although numerous members have passed through their ranks over the years, the only constant member has been founding guitarist Christer "Krunt" Andersson.
Starting off as a vocal/guitar/bass/drum quartet, the band added a keyboardist to the lineup by 1993, the same year Tad Morose recorded their first demo tape (inking a recording deal with Black Mark Production shortly thereafter). The quintet's debut full-length, Leaving the Past Behind, immediately followed, which was described by many as a combination of Metallica and Dream Theater. 1995 saw the release of the group's sophomore effort, Sender of Thoughts, which was followed up the same year with a five-track live mini-album, Paradigma, produced by renowned metal vet Mike Wead (Mercyful Fate, Memento Mori). The group faced a period of uncertainty when singer Kristian Andrèn decided to leave the band, but the group's worries didn't last long, as they found a suitable replacement with a chap who goes by the name of Urban Breed. Further releases followed, including 1997's A Mended Rhyme and 2001's Undead (the latter of which was Tad Morose's first release for the Century Media label). ~ Greg Prato, Rovi
