Cult Swedish death metal band DERANGED has inked a deal with Agonia Records. The group's follow-up to 2011's "Cut Carve Rip Serve" album will be recorded this summer for a late 2016 release.
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 sparetime. 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 Rikard Wermén, who's the band's mastermind and sole remaining member from the original 1991 lineup.
Rikard had the following to say about the signing: "It is an honor to announce that we have signed a deal with Polish extreme metal label Agonia Records.
"We will enter Berno Studio in the summer to record DERANGED's ninth full-length album, and our first since 2011! It will be the heaviest DERANGED release so far!"
