Degraded Signs To Dockyard 1

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.

Here is Degraded's current line Up:

Mikael Sehlin – Vocals
Anders Nyström - Guitar
David Szücs – Guitar
Michel Bärzén – Bass Guitar
Kenneth Helgesson – Drums
