In the beginning of May 1999 the drummer Erik, and the guitarists
Christian and Rickard started an unnamed project influensed by
old school metal, and a couple of songs were made without vocalist
Since Joakim was a close friend and his last band, Face Down recently
had split up because their lead singer Marco Aro had joined the Haunted
and their drummer Peter Stjärnvind joined Entombed, Joakim decided
to join the band as bassplayer. However a singer was still to be found.
A friend of Joakim, Daniel, singer of SoulQuake System wanted to sing
with the band but turned out to be to busy with SoulQuake´s new album.
Henrik Svegsjö of Thyrfing sang with the band for a short while
but didn´t quite fit in (the band). During search for a new singer,
Joakim came up with a logo and the band name Construcdead.
In mid September things began to change, Jonas Sandberg, lead singer
of Embodiment and a friend of Henrik, had heard that Construcdead
were looking for a singer, and after only one rehersal...
Jonas was a member of Construcdead.
Shortly there after "The new constitution" was recorded.A mini CD containing
three songs of pure Swedish metal. This CD was noticed by labels like
Music for nations, Listenable records and several radio stations
In the end of March another CD called "Turn" was completed.
This CD shows that the group has grown big as a band.It also features
a good friend of Construcdead, Peter Wichers of Soilwork.
Construcdead played at the "Stonhenge Festival" in Holland
among other bands like Gospel of the horns, Absorbed, Deadhead,
Inhume, Hammerhawk, Houwitser and Enthroned.
Construcdead were very well received by the Dutch crowd.
Radio stations that recived "The new constitution" have been screaming
for more and "Turn" has made Construcdead a well known name around Europe.
After the great success with "Turn" the band kept pounding out new killer material, and
completed another crushing cd..."As Time Bleeds".
