Interview By Blackdiamond
Swedish metal band TAD MOROSE were formed in 1991 and released their debut album “Leaving The Past Behind” in 1993.
In 2008 ex-STEEL ATTACK vocalist Ronny Hemlin joined the band and in 2013 they signed with Despotz Records, releasing the long awaited album “Revenant”, which received a very warm welcome by both fans and media. During this long period of time the band had gone through a lot of line-up changes leaving only founder Christer “Krunt” Andersson (guitars) as the only remaining original member and Peter Morén (Drums) who had joined the band back in 1994. The new line-up was completed with bassist Tommi Karppanen (ex Morgana Lefay) and guitarist Kenneth Jonsson (ex Torch).
The band has now completed the recording of their 8th full length album. The album is titled “St Demonius” and it contains twelve brand new typical TAD MOROSE songs. More straight forward, more unnecessary complicated, slower, faster, more melodic and heavier in other words!
“St. Demonius” will be released by Despotz Records on 28th August 2015 and soon after that TAD MOROSE will head out on a headline tour in Europe.
I caught up with guitarist Christer ‘Krunt’ Andersson to talk about the new album, which can be listened to on the audio player below.
On “St Demonius”, Krunt revealed:
“It’s Tad Morose kind of metal, a little bit more of everything I think. A lot of the lyrics are about the crap that’s going around in today’s world, people never ever seem to learn from history. And all the religious bullshit that’s going on, why can’t people just sit back, shut up, play heavy metal, drink beer, smile and have a good time? Let everyone believe in whatever they believe, as long as they don’t hurt anybody. That’s a lot of the things going on in the lyrics.”
