Stockholm, Sweden-based melodic death metallers DEGRADEAD have signed with Metallvile Records for the release of their forthcoming third album, "A World Destroyer." The album is scheduled to be released in Spring of 2011. In the meantime, you can check out some of their past material on the band's MySpace page.
"A World Destroyer" was recorded at Peter Tägtgren's (HYPOCRISY, PAIN) Abyss Studios in Pärlby, outside Ludvika, Sweden, produced by DEGRADEAD and Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY, CENTINEX, WORLD BELOW).
DEGRADEAD's second album, "Out Of Body Experience," entered the national chart in the band's home country at position No. 48. The CD was released on February 27, 2009 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and March 2, 2009 in the rest of Europe via Dockyard 1 Records. It was the follow-up to 2008's "Till Death Do Us Apart," which was recorded at In Flames Studios, and produced by H.O.R.D.E. Jesper Strömblad (IN FLAMES) called Degradead "The Future Of Metal."
Dockyard 1 recently announces the signing of Stockholm-based DEGRADEAD.
Jesper Strömblad of IN FLAMES announces them as ”The Future of Metal” after taking notice of them with their demo album ”Death Row” and subsequently offered them to work with him.
Degradead took their chance and went down to Gothenburg and recorded their debut "Til Death Do Us Apart" in IF Studios. The album was produced by a team – calling themselves H.O.R.D.E, mixed and engineered by Björn Gelotte and co-engineered by Jesper Strömblad and Daniel Svensson. Result of the recordings is a piece of finest Melodic Death Metal – finding the perfect balance between Death, Thrash and catchy melodies, with their already very own signature.
The release of “Till Death Do Us Apart” is scheduled for January 28th. You can check out the first two tracks of that album – the Melodic Death Metal reference “Genetic Waste” and the rather thrashy “Take Control” with a dot of songwriting from Metallica to Children Of Bodom on the band's MySpace page.
A tour is planned for 2008 with Dimension Zero.
