DEATHDESTRUCTION — the Swedish metal "supergroup" featuring current/former members of EVERGREY, HAMMERFALL and DEAD BY APRIL — recently inked a deal with the Swedish branch of Sony Music Entertainment. Due on August 25, the band's debut album was recorded at IN FLAMES' IF Studios with producer Roberto Laghi (IN FLAMES, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, LOK, SONIC SYNDICATE). A three-song EP, "Fuck Yeah" — recorded completely live at IF Studios — will precede the full-length CD on April 18.
The third in series of webisodes featuring video behind-the-scenes footage from the EP recording sessions can be viewed below.

Formed in late 2003 by Danhage, Ekdahl and EVERGREY keyboardist Rikard Zander (who was handling the vocals in the band's earliest incarnation), DEATHDESTRUCTION began as an innocent "hobby project" before Henrik and Jonas realized they wanted to pursue the band more seriously. They eventually parted ways with Rikard and enlisted Larsson and Strimmell, both of whom were "very excited to join the band," according to the group's official bio.
