Long-running Swedish death metallers DERANGED are currently at Berno Studio (Amon Amarth, The Crown, Witchery) recording what will be their their ninth full-length album and first for Agonia Records. The successor to "Cut Carve Rip Serve" (2011) is expected to be released on October 28th and titled "Struck By A Murderous Siege". Today, the band revealed a rough mix excerpt from one of the new songs, "Hello From The Gutters", accompanied by a video from the studio. It can be watched at:
While full album details will be revealed over the next weeks, drummer & founder Rikard Wermen issued the following update on DERANGED's current proceedings:
"We´re right now caught in good ol' Berno Studio located in our hometown Malmö, working on the new full length (titled "Struck by a murderous siege") and things are going rather smooth. Mean, we record the way we've done the last 20+ years. We go in and just fucking play. That's it! Not trying to overproduce anything. We want our shit to sound alive and (in)human. Eight songs of adrenalin and filth soaked death metal straight from the sewers of a cruel and malicious world.
To sum the whole thing up...
Rikard Wermén (drums): Who are you?
Berno Paulsson (producer): I am Berno.
Rikard Wermén: Have you come for me?
Berno Paulsson: I have long walked by your side.
Rikard Wermén: So I have noticed.
Berno Paulsson: Are you ready?
Rikard Wermén: My body is ready, but I am not".
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 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, the band's mastermind and sole remaining member from the original 1991 line-up. With more than twenty years in the buiseness and eighth full-length albums under the belt, DERANGED remains as one of the cult-status Swedish death metal acts around.
