DERANGED: New Song 'Reverent Decomposition' Available For Streaming
September 13, 2016
Long-running Swedish death metallers DERANGED will release "Struck By A Murderous Siege", their ninth full-length album and first for Agonia Records, on October 28. The follow-up to 2011's "Cut Carve Rip Serve" was recorded at Berno Studio (AMON AMARTH, THE CROWN, WITCHERY) in Malmö, Sweden. The album's cover artwork is a visual depiction of its title, and it was created by Mike Hrubovcak (GRAVE, SIX FEET UNDER, SINISTER).
One of the new songs, "Reverent Decomposition", can be streamed below.
Despite DERANGED's roots, their sound is more associated with American death metal rather than the early '90s Swedish death metal scene they originated from, and can be described as technical and brutal death/grind with several groove influences.
Guitarist/main songwriter Thomas Ahlgren commented on the album: "The new DERANGED album, titled 'Struck By A Murderous Siege', is a blend of classical DERANGED brutality with a bit of new elements that will fit perfectly both old and new DERANGED fans. You can be sure about that! The album, consisting of five fast, grinding and shredding songs and three heavy mid-tempo tunes, will give the listener the most interesting and varied DERANGED album so far. Prepare to hear the echoes of serial killers and brutality!"

DERANGED was formed in 1991 by a couple of bored teens in the southern parts of Sweden who basically wanted to do something in their spare time. Inspired by the bloodiest and most violent bands of the period, like early CARCASS, NAPALM DEATH, IMPETIGO, SUFFOCATION, and even bloodier horror movies, they started to grind. The early fascination proved to be a particularly long-lasting and fruitful one, with a short break between 2007 and 2009.
DERANGED is led by drummer and founder Rikard Wermén, who's the band's mastermind and sole remaining member from the original 1991 lineup.
