Swedish death metal long-runners DERANGED have entered Berno Studio (Amon Amarth, The Crown, Witchery) in Malmö, with plans to record their tenth album, follow-up to "Struck By A Murderous Siege" (2016). The record is set to be released early next year on Agonia Records.
The band commented: "Alright! We're back in Berno Studio to record our tenth full length album! Eight tracks of swift, uncompromising brutality and skull crushing heaviness! To be released spring 2020 via Agonia Records. Album title to be confirmed, some of the song titles are: "Quarantine Required for the Rotten Masses" "Engulfed by Hate I Stab to Kill" "Carnal Provision for the Rotten Masses" Line-up: Johan Bergström - vocals Thomas Ahlgren - guitars Andreas Johansson - bass Rikard Wermen - drums".
This will be DERANGED's first album to feature new vocalist, Johan Bergström (Visceral Bleeding).
DERANGED was formed in 1991 by a couple of bored teens in the southern parts of Sweden, that 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 Rikard Wermén, the band's mastermind and sole remaining member from the original 1991 line-up.
The band's last album, "Struck By A Murderous Siege" from 2016, was also recorded at Berno Studio. The album was followed by a special compilation release, "Postmortem Rituals", featuring a collection of rare demo tapes and 7" singles (allremastered from original DAT tapes).
