As previously reported, CONSTRUCDEAD have uploaded audio samples from their third album, "The Grand Machinery", at this location.
"The Grand Machinery" (view cover here) is scheduled for release on September 28 via Black Lodge Records.
CONSTRUCDEAD — who recently announced the addition of vocalist Jens Broman (HATELIGHT, THE DEFACED) and bassist Viktor Hemgren (LUCIEN, ex-MAZE OF TORMENT) to the group's ranks — recorded "The Grand Machinery" at Fear And Loathing Studio (co-owned by CLAWFINGER and MESHUGGAH) with producer Jocke Skog (CLAWFINGER).
CONSTRUCDEAD released their sophomore album, "Violadead", in early 2004 through Sound Pollution Records. The CD was recorded and mixed at Helsingborg's Queenstreet Recording with producer Richard Larsson and features a guest appearance by SOILWORK vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid and ex-SOILWORK drummer Henry Ranta in the track "Bitter End".
Since leaving CONSTRUCDEAD earlier in the year, vocalist Peter Tuthill has gone ahead and resurrected his previous group DOG FACED GODS. Guitarist Conny Jonsson (ex-EBONY TEARS) and Tuthill have started writing material for the follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed 1998 debut, "Random Chaos Theory In Action". The band have also set up a new official web site at www.dogfacedgods.net.
