Veteran Swedish metallers TAD MOROSE have released a new video for the song “I Am Night”, taken from the band’s tenth album, titled Chapter X, which was released on June 15 via GMR Music. Chapter X opens with the powerful “Apocalypse”, a semi-proggy, symphonic melodic metal tune loaded with a chorus that kicks the listener in the ass while “Deprived Of Light” is straight-up double bass melodic power metal with a stench of ’80s Germany yet very modern at the same time. “I Am Night” is a fist to the face with a chorus that screams for an audience sing-along and album closer, “… Yet Still You Preach” calms things down with an atmospheric feel. Watch the video below.
